Feral Interactive announced today that they are bringing Life is Strange: Before the Storm, the recent prequel series, to macOS and Linux this spring.
David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive, was full of praise for Deck Nine’s work on the prequel series.
He said in a press release:
“With its tough yet vulnerable protagonist, Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a poignant evocation of teenage life. The atmospheric soundtrack, sharp writing and captivating story combine to create an engrossing and moving game, and we very are excited for macOS and Linux players to experience it.”
It’s going to be the deluxe edition of the game, featuring all three of the main episodes, along with the bonus episode, “Farewell,” which features the return of series protagonist Max Caulfield.
It’s a real get for Mac players, with Before the Storm being one of the best surprises of last year, and Deck Nine, at times, surpassing Dontnod’s work on the original series.
Feral Interactive specialises in bringing ports to Mac and Linux, having previously worked on Alien: Isolation, Hitman (2016), Bioshock, and Tomb Raider (2013).
There’s a mini-site set up on Feral’s homepage dedicated to the game. There isn’t a specific release date for the port as of yet.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
