Salvo! Announced For Mac
11:32 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Shrapnel Games has announced that it will be publishing a Mac version of their upcoming single-player naval warfare game called Salvo! Set in the 17th through 19th centuries, also known as the Age of Sail, Salvo! allows gamers to take command of the navies of England, France, the fledgling United States, and others, as you wage war in a fully realized three-dimensional environment. The game is currently set to go gold on May 1st and should be shipping shortly afterwards.

Here's more from the press release:

Recently there's been some grumbling down at the docks regarding the fact that Salvo!, the Age of Sail single-player experience from Spruegames and Shrapnel Games, is still laid up in drydock, even though the projected gold date was March. Well, put down the torches and cutlasses (we see that look you've been giving us) and pick up the grog and bar wenches again, because the harbormaster has assured us that Salvo! is prepping for launch. The new projected gold date is right around the corner, May 1st.

While the delay is disappointing (as they are wont to be, unless we're talking from the perspective of being a condemned pirate awaiting a date with the yardarm…) those of you who sail the digital seas on a Mac will be excited to learn that Salvo! will now be available for the Mac also! Originally planned as a post-PC release, Spruegames has decided to steam full speed ahead on the Mac port (OS X and classic) to ensure gamers of all sorts will have access to Salvo! as soon as it clears port.

For more information, including screenshots of the game, head over to the official Salvo! web site.
