8:57 AM | Cord Kruse | 13 comments
Along with the usual list of status updates for games, Aspyr Media's recent newsletter announced the creation of a new email address specifically for game requests, gave some insight into the anticipated title Stubbs the Zombie, and talked a bit about their first steps in transitioning to OS X Intel.
If you've ever wanted a particular game ported to the Mac, but were unsure of where to send the request Aspyr just made your task easier. email@example.com allows gamers to let their voices be heard.
We often receive requests from you guys about which games you would like to see brought to the Mac. We love to know what you guys think. So, a few weeks ago we created firstname.lastname@example.org for this sole purpose. Please use this address to send in requests of games you'd like to see for Mac, or for any other game-related requests.Those eagerly anticipating the release of Stubbs will be happy to hear Aspyr is getting "very close" to the end of the project and major in-house work has shifted to aid in its completion. Currently at first playable status, Stubbs is scheduled for release sometime this fall.
Already hard at work on preparing for the transition to an Intel powered OS X, Aspyr's programmers recently spent time with Apple engineers and were able to create OS X Intel native versions of Doom 3 and Knights of the Old Republic.
After working with the latest XCode tools and Intel Developer Transition kits, we were able to build versions of Doom 3 and Knights of the Old Republic that ran natively on OS X Intel. While there is still much work to do before any of Aspyr's games are ready for release on the new Mac Intel platform, it's a very promising start!The newsletter also mentions several "unannounced titles" in development for Mac, PC and Windows Mobile for PocketPC.
