The Mac porting powerhouse Westlake interactive has updated their news page with the news that one of their most-anticipated projects, Maxis' quirky god-game The Sims, has reached beta stage. The beta testing team has already begun their work, and are hacking away at all the bugs. Their target is to release The Sims for Mac before or at the Macworld Expo in New York this July. They seems very confident that they will have finished this port by then.
The Sims for Mac is now in Beta testing (please no emails asking to test!). We're rapidly finishing the project, with our goal to have it ready for Macworld New York. So far it has been testing well, and a few optimizations in the last week have really speed up gameplay.In a recent interview Phil Sulak mentioned that he might try and add some Easter eggs (little cheats) to the game for Mac users (such as an iMac) so stay on the lookout!
