Mac-tastic games ahead - Battle of the Bulge (Mac) and Order of Battle: Pacific (Mac) are ready for Beta!14 May 2015 0
“Will there be a Mac version?” or “When will this be out on Mac?” are common questions when a new game is released, often followed by an evasive or holding reply from the publisher leaving the gamer none the wiser. The sad fact for people looking for wargames on the Mac is that the market segment is pretty small – let’s be honest, the PC is the norm for a games machine – and so the economics of porting a game to the Mac are usually a bit marginal.
However, Shenandoah and Slitherine (OK, we know they’re part of the same company) have just announced that two games are soon to be released for the Mac and are calling for beta testers. So Mac gamers, now is your chance to show you exist and help speed these games onto your favourite platform. Also they’re both rather good games. Check out our views on Battle of the Bulge here and Order of Battle: Pacific here.
Here is the press stuff with links for you to follow to get onto the beta testing programmes.
