Earth: 2140 for Mac In Production
9:29 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
When German developer e.p.i.c. interactive entertainment released the demo for the TopWare RTS game Earth 2140, many were a bit puzzled; after all, this "classic" title was written in the days when a Pentium II and a 601 Mac were considered cutting-edge. But e.p.i.c has assured us that this is only a preview of what is to come, so we take the news that 2140 is in production as a hopeful sign of the future. That future will hopefully include a port of TopWare's next title, Earth 2150 -- a true-3D RTS with stunning graphics and sound which was highly praised on the PC side upon release. Future e.p.i.c projects will include Gorky 17, a Fallout-style scifi RPG released for the PC as Odium, and the fantasy RPG Dafel: Bloodline. The date for Gorky 17 has been shifted to this May.
Earth 2140 itself is a traditional pseudo-3D RTS title which will seem extremely familiar to fans of the genre, but was bleeding-edge fresh when it was originally released in 1995-96. With quite modest hardware requirements and great graphics and sound, this one should be pleasing to anyone needing a quick fix while the next round of RTS titles grind away in production. Here's the text of e.p.i.c's announcement:
EARTH 2140, the classic realtime strategy game originally developed on theAs with previous e.p.i.c titles, the status of US distribution is unknown at this time. Their recent release of Simon the Sorcerer II was picked up by Mac-O-Rama for US distribution, so it is likely they will also carry future e.p.i.c titles. For more information on the current projects, visit the e.p.i.c. web site; if you are interested in taking Earth 2140 for a spin, grab the demo from MacGameFiles.
