Sim Theme Park Shipping, Elite Force Demo Soon
4:30 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Macintosh game publisher, Aspyr Media, sent us word that tomorrow they will begin to ship Sim Theme Park pre-orders. Sim Theme Park is a 3D amusement park simulator, where you erect rides and concession stands, to attract visitors. Here is a short description:

Build the theme park of your dreams, from the ground up. Choose from
three distinct themes, Lost Kingdom, Halloween, Space Zone or
Wonderland, pick the rides, from kiddie rides to pukefest, it's up to
you. But it's not just about the rides, you decide where EVERYTHING
goes. Feeling a little twisted, put the only bathrooms at the South
end of the park or keep kids bouncing off the walls with plenty of
sodas and candy at concession stands. A helpful advisor is provided to
give you instant feedback but ultimately patrons are at your mercy.
Sim Theme Park's system requirements are relatively light when compared to today's more more modern games:
  • Mac PowerPC G3 or G4 processor at 233 Mhz (333 Mhz recommended) or faster

  • MacOS 8.5 or later

  • Open GL 1.1.2 (included)

  • QuickTime 4.0 (included)

  • 64 MB RAM (128 MB recommended)

  • 150 MB Free hard disk space

  • 6 MB VRAM (16 MB VRAM recommended)

  • 4x CD-ROM drive
  • Included is a feature where you can "move" your park online and have other Sim Theme Park players visit it. You can also visit other players' amusement parks.


    Sim Theme Park was ported to the Macintosh by Feral interactive (also known for their Championship Manager games). If you haven't already, check out IMG's preview of Sim Theme Park for more details.


    Aspyr also informed us that a demo for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force is in the works and will be released within the next two weeks. The demo will include a few levels from the retail version, as well as a tutorial mission to help gamers familiarize themselves with the controls. A multiplayer mode will also be included.
