Feral Announces Fable for the Mac
7:51 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Feral Interactive announced today they are bringing the hit adventure game Fable: The Lost Chapters to Mac OS X. Originally developed by Lionhead Studios for the Xbox console last year, the port to Mac and Windows will be much improved, according to the Feral site.

Changes include expanding the world with more quests, improving the graphics over what the Xbox could display, and changing the control system--presumably from a console controller to a more standard keyboard and mouse layout.

Fable is pitched as a RPG that changes along with your character. Depending on your actions, the game world and characters in it will react differently to you. Here's more from the game's official site:

In this groundbreaking role-playing adventure game from Lionhead Studios, your every action determines your character's skills, appearance and morality. Your character's life story is created from childhood through to adulthood and on to old age. Grow from an inexperienced child into the most powerful being in the world, spoken of by all and immortalized in legend. As additional story and side quests await, choose the path of righteousness, or dedicate your life to evil, and see yourself transform into a reflection of your actions and decisions. Age leaves you wizened and battle leaves you scarred as you explore the world of Albion and the plethora of expanded and enhanced content.

With experience comes advancement and physical change, whether it be expanding muscles, a keen eye and nimble form, or the buzz of magical energies around your finger tips. As you develop your alter ego, the world reacts to you and your actions. People comment on your successes and failures, your appearance, and your behavior.

According to a related article from MacCentral, Feral has also noted this renewed relationship with Lionhead (the creators of the Black & White series and an upcoming title called Movies), could mean an even better chance of seeing future ports from the company as well. Fable is due out for Windows this Fall, with more information coming on the Mac version in the next month.
