At first glance, I thought the "Dust Devil" picture was just a stylized version of the "Prowse" picture. I was hoping for Dirt 2, seeing I don't believe we've had a major Mac racing game in a while. But I guess, Borderlands as pointed out by others seems more likely.

Speaking of racing games I was really hoping for F1 2010 which is looking great from the videos and previews I have seen so far. Feral have even previously ported a couple of Codemasters racing titles with Colin McRae and TOCA3. I even saw the Apple logo here http://www.formula1-game.com/ but then realised they meant the iPhone version of F1 2009 :(  

Although we got EA's F1 2000 my guess is the licensing costs will mean the only way to play this will be to buy a console and another wheel or mess about with Windows and bootcamp - neither sound appealing to me - I'd much rather spend that money on supporting Mac OS X becoming a better platform for games.

Borderlands GOTY has been announced

View PostSmoke_Tetsu, on 13 July 2010 - 04:01 AM, said:

If that's true that would mean they have the actual UE3 readily available so they could conceivably bring other UE3 titles to the Mac.

The game engine and the entire game was ported by the Feral team in house without any outside collaborations. As far as I know no Mac UE3 code is available right now.

View PostSmoke_Tetsu, on 13 July 2010 - 04:01 AM, said:

I think a problem with a lot of other UE3 games is they tend to use more Windows centric middleware such as Games For Windows Live, .net, etc. which has to be replaced when they attempt to port them to OS X. Borderlands doesn't seem to and it uses Gamespy for multiplayer.

Game For Windows Live is no big problem basically every port these days has some form of GFWL or other API built in.  These days to make a port you have to deal with lots of middleware, GFWL is one of the easier ones to avoid/remove.

Although what you are replying to was from last July and you have told me part of it already the second part is news to me and makes me a little more hopeful.

But now that all three titles teased on the "Upcoming" page are officially announced, it's time to update it and tease us a little bit more, isn't it? ;)

No demo exists on other platforms so no demo on the Mac either. We do have Mac <-> PC Co-op gaming on LAN and internet which is a LOT of fun :)

Well I know we have one more title to tease you with before Christmas :) But I can't think of a clever hint right now so the only thing I will say is it's a game, it's popular, we are making a Mac version of it. :P

Basically middleware can be easy to deal with or hard to deal with but always expensive :)

Would you have to license (for example) GFWL even if you are just going to disable\replace it?

Nope, you only have to license technology if you use it, for example almost every game we port uses Bink video but on the Mac we use h264 in a Quicktime wrapper instead and remove all trace of Bink from the game. As such we don't license or display any Bink copyrights in our games.

Glad you like it :) If you hunt about in the data folder you might find my save games which are 100% complete on play-through 1 but play-through 2 is untouched allowing you to play all the way through the game with a pretty well tooled up character. :)
