Way out there, but it needs to be asked. Elder Scrolls 5? Not aware of any Linux hostility there (especially given that ZeniMax allowed Arkane Studios to release the Arx Fatalis source under GPL).
It's not scheduled for release until 11-11-11 (a bit more than 9 months), but maybe poking Bethesda about a possible port could get interest rolling. They don't use Gamebryo anymore.. they have a new engine they created themselves, though they do (at least) use Havok and Havok Behavior.
Hm... There's a couple possible ZeniMax deals out there to maybe be had. Havok doesn't prevent it from happening, just so you know. It's in the "maybe" list... I'll do a bit of checking here in the next couple of weeks to see what they might have to say.
Here's a game I'd love to see ported: Beat Hazard.
It's basically a playable visualization for your music, and it's incredibly addicting.
They (Cold Beam Games) primarily use steam for publishing of their PC version though, so probably the only way they'd be interested in a port is if steam really would come to linux. But if it does I guess they'd be all for it, as they're already in the process of porting to the Mac.
Don't know if you could convince Stardock of that. At one point in time, they had a port of one of their games in progress, but the consultant boggled on them and they've kind of soured on the idea. I've got a bit o' ammo in hand from two successful (sales-wise...I've had other technically successful ones...) combined with the HIB#1 figures to go talk w/them about things. I'm sure they might not mind a few tablet and mobile versions of some of their games in the e-Stores... :-D
Hi, I'm pretty sure this has been brought up before, but it would be really nice to have some of their games on Linux- they've expanded well beyond where they were a couple years ago, and now do simultaneous PC & Mac releases.
I'm new here and I just came across this topic so thought I would give a list of the games I would like to see native on Linux unfortunately most of these games were purchased through Steam but hopefully Steam will be on Linux soon.
UT3 (I know, probably will never happen)
Sid Meier Railroads
World of Warcraft (I know, Blizzard apparently already has a Linux version but refuses to release it.)
Return to Castle Wolfenstien (Purchased from store.)
