Sid Meier's Railroads! Rolls Out This Fall
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

Feral Interactive has announced that Sid Meier’s Railroads!, the re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon, will be released for the Mac this Fall. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for PC, Sid Meier’s Railroads! comes to the Mac for the first time under the Feral Legends label.

“Sid Meier’s Railroads! is so addictive that we had trouble prizing it out of the hands of our testers. We’re confident Mac gamers will be stoked for it,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.

First published in 2006 for PC, Sid Meier’s Railroads! is a compelling combination of virtual train set and business simulator, putting players in charge of building their own railroad empire. Players control a vast collection of rolling stock from steam and diesel locomotives to modern electric trains, hauling goods and passengers across vast continents.

Featuring 46 historically-accurate trains, 16 maps and seven mission-driven scenarios that span two centuries of American and European history,

Sid Meier’s Railroads! challenges players to turn frontier lands into thriving civilizations by laying track and routing trains between farms, towns, mines and factories. With rival railroad barons such as Cornelius Vanderbilt and Charles de Gaulle on the scene, players will need to be quick, smart and decisive to stay on track.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • 1.8GHz Intel Mac
  • 3GB RAM
  • 128 MB or better graphics card
  • Mac OS 10.6.8 or later.
  • The game does not support the following graphics cards: ATI X1xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series.
Sid Meier’s Railroads! for the Mac will retail in North America for US $29.99, £19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. Learn more about the game, and check out a trailer, at the links below.

IMG Reviews The Book Of Unwritten Tales
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Nordic Games' The Book of Unwritten Tales Deluxe Edition. The humorous point and click homage to the fantasy RPG genre features 20 hours of gameplay, multiple heroes with unique skills, and over 150 mind boggling puzzles to solve.

Here's an excerpt:

To tie pieces of the story together, there are also several video sequences. The sequences are well done, and often very entertaining. And, like with a good novel, you the player learn more of what is going on than do the characters in the story. However, even though you are controlling the characters, there is nothing you can do to warn them. Again, like a good book!

I found references to many popular sci-fi and fantasy stories, as well as a few pokes at videos and even the older paper and dice D&D games. I am sure there were several that I missed. It is all done in a tasteful, “tongue-in-cheek” manner and just adds to the overall enjoyment of the game. Some are subtle, such as those that occur as the game loads, others blatant, as with a nod to Star Wars, or the complaint about MMOs never listening to their players.
