Westlake: Civ III Update, New 'Mystery' Game
8:03 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Westlake Interactive's web site was updated yesterday with new information on their Mac port of Civilization III. It seems this MacSoft title has just hit the 'first playable' mark, which is a huge step and deserves some congratulations. It means all the code (which was just finalized for the PC recently) is now compiling on the Mac and it's possible to play through parts of the title. The update especially tantalizing for OS X users:
Civilization III for Mac hit First Playable status late last week. Brad Oliver and John Butler are doing an amazing job on this very cool game. According to Oliver, "The port is coming along great, and we hope to have a few surprises for OS X users."Kudos go out to Oliver and Butler for their hard work. In a recent MacSoft update, the company told IMG they were expected to ship Civ III in February --though it was hoped that a faster port might mean a release even sooner.

While the Westlake project status page has been updated with the word on Civ III, they also have a tantalizing new 'mystery' game, codenamed Morphine. As Westlake fans know, these names often generate a good amount of guessing as to what they may mean. If you've got an idea, shout it out in our forums.
