Epic Interactive's Fall Lineup
9:46 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

We recently contacted Epic Interactive, an overseas Mac/Amiga developer that is porting several titles to both platforms and producing one original game. No, this is not Epic, creators of Unreal Tournament; this German company is a new porting house for Mac and Amiga titles. They are currently working on various game, such as Earth 2140, Simon The Sorcerer 2, Dafel and Gorky17. These games have been in development for a while, but were only annouced for Mac several months ago. We managed to obtain some updates on the progress of their ports, and Mac gamers should find the news encouraging. Here is their progress report:

Simon The Sorcerer 2: There will be no demo. The Amiga version is almost
finished, the Mac version has enterd early beta stages.

Earth 2140: Amiga demo is about to be released (progress report at:, the Mac demo will be 2-3 weeks until we can release it.
The facts given at are the same for both Amiga and Mac
version, only that the Mac version is about 2 weeks behind schedule.

Dafel: Bloodline: First level is complete for Mac, Amiga and Windows
versions. Now the other levels have to be inserted and tested before the
gold master CD. A demo is scheduled for early novembre release.

Gorky 17: development is on time, so that we are confident of a pre Xmas
release for this one.

Most will have demos and should be released in the next few months. This Fall is shaping up very nicely for Mac titles, don't you agree? Watch MacGameFiles for the upcoming demo downloads. Be sure and check out our past articles on Epic Interactive for more details on the titles they are porting.
