Danger From The Deep Comes To OS X
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
Danger from the Deep, a free open source World War II German submarine simulator, was recently ported to OS X. DftD focuses on realism and strategy rather than arcade action. The game is currently in a playable alpha state with the final version intended to offer network play and wolfpack or destroyer vs. submarine matches.
DftD is realistic and interesting to play, has good graphics and sounds but with more emphasis on strategy and realism. The game's purpose is not to glorify war, but to understand strategy and tactics.Danger from the Deep requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and ATI or Nvidia graphics (Intel GMA 950 is not supported).
Credits go to Fl0r!an and -Nuke- from the Games4Mac.de Community for bringing us the Mac port. Interestingly enough, Danger from the Deep is the only Submarine simulator of its kind to appear on Mac OS X.
DftD is planned as tactical simulation and will be as realistic as time and knowledge of physics allows. It's current state is ALPHA, but it is still highly playable.
The hope is that the final version will include network play and wolf-pack or destroyer versus submarine matches. The program and source code is available under the GPL license and most of the artwork/data is released under a Creative Commons license (Attribution/NonCommercial/Non-Derivative works).
