MWSF: MacSoft on Tropico Add-On, MoO3, NWN
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
While not the largest booth on the show floor, MacSoft did have some huge news for the Macworld Expo attendees. Besides the showing of Neverwinter Nights and Unreal Tournament, there were other goodies for gamers to drool over.
Al Schilling told IMG the company is bringing Tropico Mucho Macho Edition to the Mac. The game will run in OS 9 and OS X and features the original Tropico, the Paradise Island expansion pack, 12 new scenarious, the official Brady strategy guide, and a behind-the-scenes feature. Look for more on that later this year.
Fans of Master of Orion III likely know the game has been undergoing some very last-minute bug fixes. Schilling told us the Mac version is only hours behind the PC version. Once the game is declared gold master, there should just be one last round of Mac-specific testing before a release. The version at the show looked very stable, so stay tuned for more from IMG as the game gets ready to ship.
Neverwinter Nights looked great at the show, and many RPG fans were excited to see this game for the first time on a Mac. While the system requirements have yet to be pinned down, Schilling did say they will release a demo for people to try out and see how the title plays on their system. Look for the game to be released sometime in Q1.
For more on these and other MacSoft releases, stay tuned to IMG.
