OS X Compatible Battletech Board Game
8:31 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

An IMG forum user has posted information about a BattleTech-based boardgame that runs under OS X. Titled MegaMek the game is a Java application under the GPL, and features network play for battles with online opponents.

There are two versions of this game, one is simply a pair of MegaMek clients which connect up and play 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 or more. The other is a client-sever setup (MegaMek.net) which puts you into a universe where your battles affect your faction's fortunes. One faction may focus attacks on another faction's specific planet, meaning your MegaMek combats will affect ownership of that planet, it's factories, etc.
MegaMek is available for a multitude of platforms as a free download. More information can be found both in the forums and at its official SourceForge page.

Battletech board game turned open-source networkable!
