German gaming site Games4Mac.de recently sent word of new developments with Virtual Programming's upcoming title Payback. According to their report, this criminal-driving game is in the final stages of testing and is expected out in January or February of next year. Payback is unashamedly inspired by titles like Grand Theft Auto, though it looks to stand out on its own merits as well.
In other news from the company, a new title, Tzar: Burden of the Crown, is now on its way to the Mac. Tzar is a real-time strategy game very much in the vein of Age of Empires II. Reviews seem mostly favorable for the title, which was released for the PC last year. Three separate races are included, each with its own tech tree and specialized campaigns.
Here's a clip from the game's web page with more information:
There are three civilizations in Tzar - the European, the Asian and the Arabian. They have some features in common, while some are unique. All buildings and units bear the characteristics of their civilization. All civilizations are carefully balanced in order to take full advantage of their distinguishing features and levels of technological mastery.Virtual Programming's third Mac title, WipeOut 2097, is in production and should be out early next month. Check out their web site for more information and stay tuned to IMG for the latest on all of these titles.
