Eschalon Book II: Mac Release & Testing Schedule
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A recent addition to the Basilisk Games forum provided more information about the development process for Eschalon: Book II, the second game in the company's "old school" RPG series. The company plans to release the Mac version 3 weeks after the Windows version debuts. Book II will continue the storyline from the previous game and feature more than 60 gameplay enhancements.

Even though the code for each platform is being developed simultaneously, we are planning on a 3-week "window" between releases starting with Windows, then Macintosh, then Linux.

The reason for this delay between releases is to ensure the highest quality of support for each edition, as well as allow time needed to properly prepare each format for distribution.

We'll probably start the Mac testing sometime after the first round of Window testing. So yes, Mac testing will be going on while we do Windows testing though not right away.

And 'yes' to whoever is planning on asking: Linux testing will probably start after we get a round of Mac testing done. It's just best to stagger the testing because that first play through is always going to bring up the most issues, so it will allow us to address the bigger problems on one OS before moving to the next.
Eschalon: Book II is tentatively planned for an early 2010 release. Follow the links below for more information.
