They have disappeared from their website and store as of May 3rd 2011. Just curious as to what happened. Maybe a licensing issue? Again, just curious. I do see the demos are still listed, but the games are no longer listed and are not in the store anymore. You can still get to the games mini-sites through the original links, but again, they no longer list them.

OK, just received a reply from Feral Interactive.... The License ran out and they can no longer sell the games. They will still have support for them though.

Oh, that's a pity.  :(

Yes, I have read through my other thread. I thank you for the explanations and I also thank you for releasing racing games on the Mac. I am just disappointed to see them gone from the site, that's all. Racing games on the Mac, especially really good ones, are few and far between.

Yes I was sad to see them go as well but rules is rules :(

If you are interested in testing games from Feral drop me a PM and the next time we do a racing game you can help on the beta :)

Hello again Edwin... been a while.

I too am a ~bit~ sad to see CMRM go.... but just three days ago my macbook pro arrived (remember how I was saying it was going to ... A COUPLE YEARS BACK XD ?) Well... there are a LOT of things that happen when you get a 15" MB Pro with a 1680x1050 resolution screen.

And an Intel i7.

One thing is *gasp* Windoze Games. With Dirt 3 out on Windoze, and D2 still coming for the mac -- I'm joining the group that "wonders" why we have to wait. Mind you, I hate Windoze as much as the next person, but it ain't that hard to reboot into it. Granted, the ONLY thing I use it for is a.) Apps for classroom instruction (because we're still running old school apps on the WIndoze machines in school) and b.) Games.

HOWEVER -- if D2 appears on the Mac Appstore, I'll definitely give it some deep thought -- after all, nothing beats being able to purchase and play the game without having to wait for the stores to stock it!! So PLEASE -- I hope to see D2 on the mac appstore !

And I'll email you soon Eddie about finally getting into that beta program...
