New macOS blip on the radar:
'Delightful Goon Squad Coming To Town'

Possibly, 'LEGO The Incredibles'.
Those glasses sure do look like Harry Potter.. But LEGO Harry Potter doesn't seem to be a big thing anymore, does it?
Possibly a 64bit/Metal remaster of the older feral-ported LEGO Harry Potter titles?

There is indeed a 'LEGO Harry Potter' Remaster coming to XBOX One and Nintendo Switch, it was only available for PS4 until now.

Somehow I connected the glasses with the masks the Incredibles wear, Edna Mode's glasses and the Screenslaver's goggles.

Digging around I found that 'A Visit from the Goon Squad' is a prize-winning anthology by Jennifer Egan centred around a character named Salazar. So...a Pirates of the Caribbean (i.e. Dead Men Tell No Tales) angle? Does that even have games these days? No idea what the spectacles connection is....

Salazar Slytherin is a notable Harry Potter character so confirmed I suppose.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

There's not even a Windows version of the LEGO Harry Potter Remaster, nor any announcements for it.
A 64-bit & Metal update makes sense, but Feral usually doesn't put those up on the radar.

Although these glasses are in fact supposed to be Harry Potter glasses (see here), I think Feral did intend to allude to Edna Mode's glasses.

The line "We are the goon squad and we're coming to town" can be found in the lyrics of a David Bowie song called "Fashion". The French word for fashion? Mode.

"We do what we must, because we can."
"Gaming on a Mac is like women on the internet." — "Highly common and totally awesome?"

Ooof. That's some 110% sleuthing right there.

Sorry for the late reply. I was very busy, because I lived abroad and now moved back to my own country.

What game are we talking about here? I googled various phrases (Aurora Borealis, The Norther Lights, etc) and found nothing.

Feral could also be working on the new  Hitman and Tom Raider.

I was indeed talking about Generation Zero which Janichsan mentioned.

The new Hitman and Tomb Raider would definitely be nice. It's just such a shame the latest Hitman is only available on Steam and not on the Mac App Store. I don't use Steam and always buy my games on the Mac App Store. I've always enjoyed the Hitman games, so missing out on this newest game is a real shame.

I guess you mean Avalanche Studios' Generation Zero. That would be a bit premature, as that game doesn't even have a release date.

But we all know of course that the "Borealis" is the ill-fated research vessel from Aperture Science. The same stock photo of the birds is also on the cover of a book called "Anatomy of Failure".

So…

Half-Life 3 confirmed.

I didn't even know Generation Zero doesn't have a release date yet. It was just the first thing that came to my mind.

Nice theory about Half Life 3. :P

Ah, you northern hemisphere types. Don't forget the Aurora Australis too!

(not that it necessarily helps us here. G'day.)

I do know about the Aurora Australis, but could think of a way to relate it to a game. Also, those birds look like the Arctic Terns we've got up here in the North, but I don't know about similar-looking birds in the South.

Another Feral announcement, 'Life Is Strange 2' will be coming to the Mac (and Linux) some time in 2019, I guess when Season 2 is complete.
That was the 'Aurora' blip on the radar.

Nice. :)

*groan*

I just wanted to write that I have been trying to wrap my head around that teaser for months now without success, when I reminded myself that the picture is the cover of a book called "Escaping the Delta".

Subject Delta.

Bioshock 2 Remastered.

*facepalm*

The embarrassing thing is that we had this clue right from the beginning

*shrug* Five minutes on Google and remembering that this line sounds so familiar because the song is in my music library.
