Aspyr Media this morning announced that it will be bringing RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 to the Macintosh. The game, which is expected to be released in November 2005, is licensed by Atari and is being developed for the Mac by Aspyr Studios based on Frontier's original code.
For the first time on Mac: build, operate and experience the amusement park your dreams in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, where you can actually ride the rides!IMG has posted a first-look preview of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. Be sure to check it out to learn more about this title.
"We are thrilled to be working with Aspyr to bring Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 to Mac users. Mac gamers can now experience all the fun and excitement of creating and managing their own theme park, bringing the magical world of RCT3 to a whole new set of people.” David Braben, Chairman and Founder of Frontier Developments.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is the first in the highly successful Rollercoaster Tycoon series to come to Mac. The game features stunning 3D graphics, and the all-new CoasterCam, which allows players to see their park from the eyes of a guest and ride all the rides. Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 also features amazing crowd scenes with enhanced park guests and characters, more than 170 rides including new-to-the-franchise roller coaster types, realistic day and night cycles with superb lighting effects, extensive still-picture and movie-making capability, and the new Fireworks MixMaster, which allows players to create pyrotechnic masterpieces and synchronize them to music.
In related news, yesterday IMG and Aspyr sponsored a contest where you could guess the name of the game after watching a brief QuickTime movie. Out of the few hundred guesses, only 4 people guessed the name of the game correctly. Out of these four people, one was randomly picked the winner: Frank Schima of Boulder, Colorado. Frank will receive a free copy of the game when it ships.
