Mac Rune Update, Demo Details
10:19 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

With the recent release of a demo for the PC version of Rune, we decided to ask Westlake Interactive's Mark Adams about the status of the Mac port and the possibility of a Mac demo to accompany the release of this title on our platform. A patch was also just released for the PC version of the game, and we wanted to know if incorporating these bug fixes into the Mac version would create any delays in the game's release. Here's what Mark had to say:

The demo probably won't be ready until after the full version is done.

We are integrating the 101 code into the Mac version, it hopefully shouldn't affect the overall schedule. We are trying to get the Mac-specific bugs all resolved right now.

So, good news on all fronts. Rune is hopefully going to ship in late November, and Mac gamers will also get to take a demo for a spin (though you might need to warm up your modems, as the PC demo weighed in at nearly 90MB). From the versions of Rune we've played, the game feels extremely stable and we're confident Westlake will be able to complete this port in the very near future. Gathering of Developers will publish the Mac version of Rune. Watch the pages of IMG for a preview of this title in the near future.
