Second Mindware Studios Q&A on Cold War
11:34 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Phoronix has released another interview with a Cold War developer, this time with Patrick Rak, the game's Chief Programmer. The interview covers the game's creation as well as the possible future of Mindware titles on the Mac platform.

Phoronix: Likewise, will there continue to be Macintosh ports of your titles? Such as Runesoft had done with Cold War for Mac OS X.

P.R.: Well, to put it straight, Mac version of Cold War is not really a port per se. We just compiled Meng on Mac, spent some time preparing big-endian data, and that was it. About two weeks of work, plus few more weeks spent for QA and testing. And then once that much again when we were asked to prepare the universal binaries for the Intel based Macs. That's what we call portability here. So although we don't run a Mac version of Meng daily as we do with Linux, it is very likely that we can easily prepare a Mac version of any of our future games as long as there is any demand for it.
