Mac Escape From Monkey Island Q&A
3:42 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
LucasArts (and Mac OS) fansite LucasMacs has posted a short Q&A with Aspyr Media regarding the recent announcement that this Mac publishing house will be bringing the 3D adventure game Escape from Monkey Island to our platform. The interview covers such topics as Carbonization, how this title was chosen and what the porting process will entail. EMI is the fourth in LucasArts' Monkey Island series, comic adventures set in a wild fantasy landscape of swashbuckling pirates, bizarre characters and barrelsful of monkeys.
Here's an excerpt from the Q&A, which was conducted with Brandon Owens of Aspyr:
Will we be seeing a MacOS X version? With MacOS X beta out, and 1.0 on the horizon it would seem increasingly feasible to just carbonize from the start of a project. Of course that is an uneducated assumption. :)For more of the interview visit the LucasMacs web site.
Aspyr Adds Three Titles
There is always a possibility, yet we will have to determine programming issues, timetables, and costs that will be associated with such a venture.
What's the starting point for porting such a large and obviously complicated game as EMI?
The first thing Westlake will do is to get the game up and running, which is usually the easiest thing. It's mainly the optimizations for the MacOS such as making it compatable with gamesprockets, 3D hardware, etc.
