Mac Baldur's Gate 2 Update, Beta Testers Wanted
9:43 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
Mike Donges of developer Mumbo Jumbo has dropped us a line noting MacPlay's progress with their port of Bioware's award-winning RPG Baldur's Gate II to the Mac OS. Included in the note is the news that they are seeking Beta testers for this much-anticipated title; however don't get too excited -- you have to live in the Irvine, California area and this doesn't mean the game has actually reached Beta status. Here is Mike's note:
The Macintosh version of Baldur's Gate 2 is coming along nicely. ChrisMacPlay, Mumbo Jumbo, United Developers -- who can keep track? We are sure that the addition of Duane Johnson to the MacPlay team is helping this port along; after all, he was working on Tales of the Sword Coast for GraphSim at one time, and likely knows BG's inner workings well.
Jacobson, the lead porting engineer, has been making great progress and we
have already started functionality testing. I'm playing it today on my
PowerBook G3 (no Titanium yet. grrr!), and it runs great. We are currently
looking for a few hardy souls in the Irvine, California area to help us out
with testing. If you have a few hundred hours of free time on your hands
and you live in this area please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In any case, IF -- and ONLY IF -- you are deadly serious about being a beta tester AND you live in the Irvine area should you e-mail Mr. Donges with your information. Any unrelated mail/begging for betas/other such garbage will only annoy him and slow the progress of this most-wanted game.
