Phoronix: Mindware Interview
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.
