Contraband Disbans?
7:52 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Replying to correct a Usenet poster, Nate Trost of Logicware and Contraband Entertainment made a statement about the latter company's status. While we knew Andrew Meggs, the programmer behind the Mac port of FAKK2, had left the company some time ago, it now looks as if the company has completely disbanded. Here's Nate's post:

Contraband did SiN Gold for MacPlay (and also a good
chunk of Fighter Squadron, which isn't yet finished yet AFAIK but still
being handled internally at MacPlay). Majesty's Mac version was done by the
original developer, to the best of my recollection. Contraband isn't
actually doing any future development for MacPlay, or anyone else for that
matter (kind of difficult when there are zero employees). Burger Bill and
Chris now work at MacPlay.

MacPlay has been extremely quiet about who is actually working on the ports of their major titles. While it's sad to hear of a Mac porting company breaking apart, it's good that both Bill "Burger" Heineman and Chris Jacobson have found positions within MacPlay. We wish the best to Nate and the rest of the former Contraband staff on their future endeavors.
