Totally forgot: Underworld Ascendant has its Mac version by now. Not that anyone cares...

If there's a sequel they should name it Underworld Descendent.

Descent: Underground - went out with a whimper. Started off well, with alpha builds and regular video updates. But they seemed a bit too giddy with scope creep and Star Citizen-like promises. Eventually a new publisher stepped in and tried to rein back the scope, but rumors say they demanded console versions and didn't contribute promised resources. Regardless, we've heard nothing from the developers for months and I'll be shocked if we ever do.

Overload: that team has also largely disbanded, but that was after successfully delivering the single player game, and a pretty good multiplayer as well. It's disappointing that it didn't sell better, but the game was delivered and I played the heck out of it for a while.

My Time at Portia: successful PC and console releases, followed by patches. The Mac version was held up supposedly for performance problems, but they aren't really responding to questions about it or other missing kickstarter rewards. Add in the Catalina transition and I expect they've pulled the plug on the Mac version. For some reason I'm madder about this one than D:U., possibly because I has accurately judged D:U to be risky.

Too bad if true. I was looking forward to that.

I may be wrong. They seem swamped-- the console versions lag PC and have needed multiple patches. Things may settle down. But I wouldn't put money on the Mac version at this point.. Whereas I did put money on it earlier :-)
