#FeralPlays Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for Mac

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is coming to Mac on March 31st, so this week we gave Mac gamers a sneak preview of the game with a pre-release #FeralPlays stream. Join Emmanuel, Cass and myself as we conduct OFFICIAL POLICE BUSINESS on the mean streets of Hong Kong!

"Favor Failed"

Parts one and two of the 2 hour-long stream are on Twitch for the next fortnight, with a highlight reel coming shortly after. Catch the full stream while you can!

#BeatFeral at Company of Heroes 2 on the Mac App Store

Recently, the Feral Interactive dev and production team laid down a challenge to fans of Company of Heroes 2 on the Mac App Store: #BeatFeral! We took the battlefield and fought valiantly, but it turns out throwing all your resources into trucks is a lot less tactically viable, you know, tanks and air strikes…

We've hosted a few of these events now, both on Mac and Linux, and we've learned that while we might be pretty good at porting games, we're not always that great at playing them! Still, it's awesome to reach out to the fans on events like these, and there are plenty more to come. Check out the Feral Interactive Multiplayer Calendar for more details, and drop us a line on Twitter or Facebook if you want to get involved!

#FeralPlays XCOM 2 - Highlight Reel

A highlight reel of the #FeralPlays XCOM 2 livestream is now up on the Feral Interactive YouTube channel. Check it out below!

Some of the best bits from our XCOM 2 livestream on Jan 28th, 2016. Can the Feral staff save the world? They aren't humanity's best soldiers, but they're all we got. Starring Emmanuel from QA, Marc "The Blond Guy" from Development, and Tabbs... who does something, we're not totally sure.

Follow Feral Interactive on Facebook and Twitter, and keep an eye on our Twitch channel for more livestreams soon!

#FeralPlays XCOM 2

UPDATE: A highlights reel of this stream is now up on the Feral Interactive YouTube Channel.

At Feral Interactive, we're ramping up for the Mac and Linux release of Firaxis Games' XCOM 2, the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown. We're as excited as everyone else is for XCOM 2's release, so we wanted to give our audience a little sneak-peek of what's in store. With Marc/Blonde Guy and I providing support, it was up to Emmanuel to take the helm and run us through a couple of (spoiler-free) missions. 

As always, it was an absolute blast; these events are without a doubt the best part of my job, especially when you've got the Feral Interactive CHAT GANG at your back! Thanks again to everyone who came along and watched, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. I'm still working on my Buddy Cop movie starring Central and Finn "Junkyard" Hausen.

You can watch the full Twitch archive below (apologies for the audio issues; we're still getting to grips with our streaming setup). The archive will be up for two weeks, with a highlights reel to follow on our YouTube channel.

Note: This archive has now been removed from Twitch, but a highlight reel is now available.

Keep an eye on Twitter and the Feral Interactive news feed for upcoming streams - we've been bitten by the bug and have no intention of stopping anytime soon! For more XCOM 2 content, be sure to check out Firaxis Games' own stream of the PC release.

A bit of festive fun from Feral HQ - this time playing Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY on Linux! Split into 4 teams of 3, we played through The Bright Lord DLC (some more successful than others), which is included in the GOTY edition.

Apologies for the audio issues on my parts - we may have accidentally disabled the microphones 360 degree pickup feature!


Starring:

Alex, Brad and Dom. You may recognise Dom from the Alien: Isolation stream last month

Jon, Tom R and Cass. Again, Cass featured in the Alien: Isolation stream.

Mary, Emmanuel and Ivo.

Marc, Tom M and me!

Feral plays Alien: Isolation - Highlight Reel!

You may remember that, recently, I played Alien: Isolation live on Twitch for Feral Interactive! Unfortunately, the Twitch archive has now been taken down, but Cass (who took part in the stream with Dom and I), edited together an amazing highlight reel, documenting my failings for the ages. Come watch my colleagues make fun of me while I die a bunch!


Alien: Isolation Livestream for Feral Interactive - Friday 6th November

Update: The Twitch archive for this is no longer available. A highlights reel is now available on YouTube.

Recently, Feral Interactive (my current employers, all thoughts my own etc. etc. etc. etc.) have taken to hosting #BeatFeral events, where we play our games online against our very keen and supportive Mac/Linux community. This is the first time we've dipped our toes into this kind of audience engagement, and the feedback we've had on so far has been fantastic. Prompted by this enthusiasm for multiplayer content, our Social Media Manager got thinking about how we could best utilise our single player games in this manner.

So here's the first result; last Friday I sat down in a darkened meeting room with Dom and Cass from QA, and we played the Crew Expendable DLC for Alien: Isolation, one of our recent releases. Until Friday I'd only clocked a couple of hours with this incredibly tense survival horror game, and it shows. If you're willing to keep count of the deaths, then please drop me a line so I can put a numerical value on how bad I was. I had an absolute blast though; streaming games is something I've wanted to try for a while, and having had a taste it's got me champing at the bit for more, so I'll definitely be doing some streaming from home in the near future.

The Twitch broadcast below will only be up for another fortnight. A highlights reel is being cut together as we speak, and that'll go on YouTube shortly; once that's up, I'll come back and amend this post accordingly. For now though, enjoy the stream, and be sure to follow @feralgames on Twitter (FeralInteractive on Twitch) to keep in the loop for future #BeatFeral events!

Note: Twitch archive no longer available. See this blog post for the highlights reel!
