Simon the Sorcerer II Ships
10:31 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Epic Interactive has updated their news page with a short comment that announces their Mac OS port of Simon the Sorcerer II, a classic 2D comic adventure, has shipped. As Epic is a European developer, presumably this means the title has only shipped on their side of "the pond"; we'll let you know when this title hits American soil.
Simon II is a charming 2D graphic adventure with an emphasis on madcap humor. Originally created by UK developer Adventuresoft, this title was written during the days of DOS and 320x240 screen resolution. However history has proven that a good plot can rescue an outdated game. There is no word yet whether a demo will be released, but we think the odds of that are quite good.
Earth: 2140 Demo (12 MB)
This announcement closely follows Epic's release of a demo for Earth 2140, a 2D RTS from 1997 that was a big hit at the time. While some in our forums have seemed a bit mystified as to why Epic is releasing such dated titles for the Mac OS, the company seems to feel that the best way to understand a title is to port all the versions of it. Thus Simon II and Earth 2140 are just precursors to upcoming ports of Simon the Sorcerer 3D and Earth 2150.
