GoD's Lineup for MWNY
10:55 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Gathering of Developers has announced their Macworld New York lineup, which will be composed of five very different games for the Mac platform. As we reported to you at this year's E3, GoD has moved into the Mac market in a major way, hitting almost every game genre in our market. At next month's MWNY They will show Rune, Tropico, 4x4 Evolution, Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 and Take Two's latest acquisition, Oni. These games will be shown 3Dfx's booth #1455 in Hall #3. Most of the games they will show are due to be shipped by Fall this year, although Tropico is not due until 2001. Here are details from the official press release:

Developer-driven computer and video game publishing company Gathering of Developers is showing its support for the Macintosh platform with the upcoming release of five titles. This year, Gathering will publish Macintosh versions of Rune, a 3D game of intense action and adventure; 4x4 Evolution, a fast-paced, 4x4 off-road simulation; two third-person action/adventure titles, Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 and Oni; and in early 2001, the company will release Tropico, a 3D building, strategy/simulation game. Gathering will showcase all five titles at the upcoming MacWorld Expo in New York, July 16-18, at 3dfx's booth, #1455 in Hall #3. Take-Two Interactive's Jack of All Games will distribute all five games in North America.

"The demand for top notch Mac titles has increased in response to the popularity of the iMac, said Harry Miller, president of Gathering of Developers. We are again embracing the Macintosh platform in 2000 with several of our triple-A titles including Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 and Rune and will continue our support throughout the next year with games like Tropico."

In related news, Westlake Interactive has begun work on Mac RUNE, although they are still in preliminary stages of development. We will be at MWNY of course to bring you details on all these great Mac games.
