Mac FAKK2 and Sin Testing Update
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Ritual Entertainment's Mark Dochtermann recently updated his .plan with a bit of news about the Mac versions of their games Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2 and Sin. Both are currently undergoing testing at the Ritual home offices, and anyone lucky enough to live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area might want to drop him a line. Here's a clip from his .plan:

Heavy Metal FAKK 2 for the Macintosh and Sin for the Macintosh Testing

We are also looking for Macintosh enthusiasts to help us test out these two
products. If you are in the DFW area and would be available some night this
week, please let me know.

This is good news for Mac fans, as it hopefully signifies the games are getting close to a release state. Check out our previews of both titles for more info.

In somewhat-related news, Scott Alden has also updated his .plan to say he has moved from a position at Ritual to 3D Realms to work on their upcoming sequel, Duke Nukem Forever. Since Ritual has only worked with Quake engines and DNF is using Unreal as its base, he'll have a bit to get used to, for sure:

Well today is my first day at 3D Realms. It was a tough decision for me to leave Ritual Entertainment, and I have had a great 3 years working there.

I'm really looking forward to get started on the Duke 4 multiplayer code, but it looks like I'll have to study this Unreal code a bit before I jump in. It's kind of a shock to be working with Quake tech for 3 years, and then jump over and work on Unreal. Well at least I get to see how both systems really work.

After this, he should be one of the most versatile programmers in the business. We had a chance to speak with Alden about FAKK2 a while back, and we wish him the best in his new endeavors.

If these two titles are in final testing, they could be declared Golden Master and be on shelves in the very near future.
