Mac Oni to Go Gold Soon
8:05 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story
Oni's coming, to prove this Matt Soell of Bungie Studios posted his weekly update to Oni Central. This weeks update goes over the status of the Mac version, the demo, and the fact that this will be the last update. Here's part of the update,
"- We thought Oni for Mac was ready to GM earlier this week, but at the last minute we had to fix a little CarbonLib problem. Once that's done and the installer is rebuilt, we should be ready to roll. With such a small problem the mac version should go gold within the week and a demo should appear soon after. When the demo does appear you can be sure to find it on MacGamefiles.com
- Some of y'all have been asking about a demo. Lucky for you, so has Gathering. We're helping them put one together now. I haven't had a chance to talk to any Oni folk this week so I have no idea when it will come out. (Nor do I know if there will be a PS2 demo that's Rockstar's decision.) But the important question finally has an answer: Yes, Virginia, there will be an Oni demo.
Unfortunately all Oni news today is not good news. Chris Butcher, the Bungie fan turned Bungie employee dropped a note on the Rampancy.net Forums. informing everyone that Oni will not run on stock biege G3s. He had this to say,
"oni will not run on the default video card included with the beige G3 series. you will have to get an expansion 3D card. sorry, we tried. :("Thankfully PCI graphic cards are extremely cheap and powerful right now. Gathering Of Developers will release Oni on January 29th for Mac, PC, and Playstaion 2.
