NWN Multiplatform Chat Transcripts
2:53 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Linux.com recently hosted an IRC chat with many members of the Bioware team working on the upcoming 3D RPG Neverwinter Nights. As you can guess from the hosts of the chat, many of the topics covered had to do with the Linux version of the game, though there were a few Mac questions thrown in as well. Bioware plans to go entirely cross-platform with NWN, supporting Mac, Windows, Linux, and even BeOS right out of the box. A few of the Mac-related matters discussed include the packaging of the game for all platforms, and whether there may be OS X support. While the hybrid CD question really depends on the publisher's whims, Linux programmer Howard Chung did quickly remark on OS X:

We're working on carbonizing NWN to get it to run under OS X.
This is great news, considering the game will likely be released late this year and OS X should have a decent installed base among gamers by then. Check out the rest of the transcript for many other NWN goodies.
