Multiwinia For Mac Nearing Release
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In preparation for the soon to be released Mac version of Multiwinia, Ambrosia Software has posted a new gameplay preview of the colorful multiplayer strategy title. Multiwinia will take place in the wireframe world first seen in Darwinia. This time players will be able to battle for supremacy against computer AI and human opponents via LAN or online play.

Multiwinia is a multi-player real time strategy war game unlike any other. A chaotic war is raging in a fantastic fractalized world populated by bloodthirsty little stick men with a mission: follow your orders to annihilate their enemies. They will do your bidding no matter what the cost: order them to take that hill, flank the enemy or run screaming towards the flame turrets. The Multiwinians are bent on destruction, and if a few hundred of them have to be incinerated to get that flag, so be it!

While Multiwinia shares its rendering engine with Darwinia, there the similarity ends. Multiwinia is all about gaming with new friends online and doing whatever it takes to blast them to bits.
Multiwinia has 6 furiously-paced game types with 40+ maps to choose from, online or in single player mode. You must keep track of the entire terrain, as each map offers opportunities for sneak attacks, and there are power-ups that can change the game in an instant. To claim victory, balance battle rage with strategy, advancing on your enemies while protecting vital spawn points to keep your stream of new recruits flowing.

Introversion released the Windows version of Multiwinia in September 2008, so there is a thriving community of gamers already established. Now it's time for the Mac gamers to enter the fray and let them know that the turf war between Mac and PC has just found an all new fractalized war zone!
Multiwinia is "almost ready for release" and will be available for PowerPC and Intel Macs running Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later. Head over to the link below to check out the rest of the preview, which includes several screenshots of the game.
