Mac NOLF a Possibility?
11:01 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
The surprise hit of the year in the PC gaming world may be a little-hyped title
from Fox and Monolith called No One Lives Forever. Already
compared with the likes of Half Life, the game could be the first real blockbuster
game to use Monolith's LithTech engine. It's a spy thriller set in the 60's
James Bond-esque world with a sexy protagonist Cate Archer. Reviewers so far
have remarked on the game's great story, witty dialog, and fun gameplay.
The game is based on the same engine as the nearly-released Shogo,
which Hyperion is porting to the Mac. We decided to contact Monolith to
see if they might be willing to do a port of the title, or have Hyperion work on it.
Here's what they replied:
That is something that Fox Interactive needs to decide. They are our publisher. :)While this isn't a definite confirmation by any means, it's good to hear it's
NOLF seems to be doing well sales-wise, if it continues, you'll see a better chance of different ports.
We're pretty much only working with Hyperion for ports. However, if we do decide to port another LithTech-based game, in theory it should be a little easier the second time around now that Hyperion has ported Shogo.
still in the realm of possibility. We've contacted Fox Interactive now as well,
and we will be sure to bring you any new info from them we might get.
