MacPlay: Tron 2.0 at Gold Master
7:16 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
MacPlay recently sent out a company newsletter announcing, among other things, that the Mac OS X version of TRON 2.0 is now considered Gold Master. This means the game has gone through the beta testing process and should be shipping out soon.
TRON 2.0 continues along the story originally developed by Disney's original TRON movie in the 80's. Players are taken into the computer, where they get to use some of the same cult-icons like light cycles and throwing discs.
Here's more of the backstory from MacPlay:
You're the star of the show in TRON 2.0. As computer programmer Jet Bradley, son of original Tron architect Alan Bradley, you travel into the digital world to find your father, who has vanished. The game updates TRON's world with current-day technology while retaining the unique look and feel of the classic film.For more on TRON 2.0, check out IMG's preview of the title.

In the role of Jet, you soon uncover a sinister plot by Future Control Industries to corrupt the world's computer networks with digitized hackers called DataWraiths. Already the creatures are at work destroying the network at Alan's job, and it's up to Jet to stop them before the disease spreads. Unfortunately, the head security program, Kernel, blames Jet for the corruption and sends his ICPs after him, compounding the problems.
