Westlake to Port Escape From Monkey Island
6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Mark Adams, president of Westlake Interactive, contacted IMG with some exciting news regarding their projects in development. Those of you who have been salivating over the "Unimaginable Project" listed on the Project Status page can finally sleep in peace. Westlake is "unofficially" announcing that they will responsible for the port of LucasArts' Escape from Monkey Island, to be published by Aspyr Media:

"Unimaginable" is Escape from Monkey Island, and Jesse Spears is working on it. We're just waiting to make sure we have all the proper approvals (and Aspyr has had a chance to issue a press release) before we put it "officially" on our web site.
Westlake's experience and success in the Macintosh gaming market made them the clear choice for handling the conversion of this game.

Mark also provided updates on several games that are scheduled for release in the next several months: Jeopardy, Rune, Elite Force, and Livin' Large:

Jeopardy has been submitted to Hasbro for approval, so it should be off
to duplication soon (if they don't find any problems).

We just received the final code for Rune, and will be merging that into
the Mac code quickly. Then a short beta test (its already looking very
good) and it should be done.

Elite Force is getting close to final, the beta test so far has gone

Livin' Large has just begun full beta.

It appears that Westlake is moving along very quickly with their ports. With any luck, anxious Mac gamers should have several more A-list titles in their hands very soon. This has to be the best Fall for Mac gamers in the history of the platform!
