Alice Moves Into Beta Status, New Project
2:22 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Westlake Interactive, the porting house devoted to the Mac platform, has updated their projects status page with news regarding several titles.
The biggest news is that American McGee's Alice has reached beta testing status. For those unfamiliar with the title, Alice is an adventure/platform game similar to Tomb Raider. Running off the Quake III engine, one of Alice's main selling points is its warped, demented atmosphere based off the original Alice in Wonderland novel, guaranteed to freak out more than a few players. Here's Westlake's official statement:
Alice has begun beta testing and is looking great! The game runs well and Brad Oliver (Lead programmer on Alice Mac for Westlake) has Carbonized the game so it runs natively under OSX.In other Westlake news, Centipede has reached Final Candidate status. Based off the arcade shooter of old, the Mac version of this title is promised to be even greater than the PC version before it. There's also an interestingly named "Trendy" Project that is currently in Contract Signing status.
