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?

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016, 4 TBT3) — 3.1 GHz i5-6287U | Iris 550 | 16 GB RAM | 512 GB Flash | Space Gray

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.
