MacDeusEx Interviews Mark Adams
9:38 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mac Deus Ex, a member of the Inside Mac Games Network, recently posted an interview with Mark Adams of Westlake Interactive. The interview, relating to Deus Ex, covers several areas of discussion from a multiplayer patch to the SDK. Although a Macintosh SDK is not possible, the multiplayer patch is still up in the air, here is a short excerpt:

[MacDeusEx]If a Deus Ex multiplayer patch ends up being a large project, and you
decide to charge money for it, how much money could everyone expect to pay
for it? Could we download it from the Aspyr website for a small charge, o
would we have to pay a lot of money for it to be profitable for Westlake?

[Mark Adams] If its a large project, likely Aspyr would have to pay us for it, but
would not pass the cost on to users. Since the PC patch was free, its
very doubtful Aspyr would even think about charging for a Mac patch.
Basically if it turns out to be a lot of work, Aspyr would have to figure
the cost of development is either worth the extra potential sales of the
game or the goodwill of the Mac community.

Keep in mind that the idea of a Multiplayer patch is still just a possibility, and no official word has been given yet. The interview does however give more insight into Westlake and Aspyr's thoughts on Deus Ex and how proud of it they really are. To read the interview in full head to Mac Deus Ex.
