Earth 2140 Demo Released
9:59 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

It seems our long wait for Epic Interactive's Mac OS efforts has been rewarded -- this German company has made good on their promise to port the RTS Earth: 2140 to the Mac OS (as well as the Amiga), and a demo is now available. Other Epic ports should follow in the near future, including Gorky 17, Simon the Sorcerer II and Simon the Sorcerer 3D. Here are the details on this demo, and the system requirements:

Experience life in 2140 AD: Two warring factions battle for the last remaining resources on the planet. High tech weaponry and superior firepower are the new tools of diplomacy. Only one side will triumph, and only one person can determine which side it will be. Sitting at the helm of the most advanced tactical interface, you will decide which side to support, you will decide which troops come home alive, and you will decide if humanity survives to the year 2141.

Earth 2140 Features:

• 640x480 or 800x600 resolution 65,000 colors

• 70 different vehicles and buildings

• 50 exciting missions

• Multiplayer feature for up to six players

• Excellent Strategic and economic AI

• Stereo soundtracks with CD quality



• OS: MacOS 8.6.1

• CPU: 180MHz 603e Power Macintosh

• RAM: 32MB

• HD Space: 80MB

• 3D Video Card w/4MB

As you can see the system requirements are extremely reasonable, and the demo itself is a very sane 12 MB download. Grab it right away, and be sure to post your feedback on MGF's user reviews or in our Forums.
