Mac Simon 3D Details
11:13 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

There was a recent announcement that the North American release of Headfirst's upcoming 3D adventure/puzzle game Simon the Sorcerer 3D had been delayed. We contacted them in an effort to get a little more information about the Mac version of this game, promised for some time. Here's what they had to say:

The Mac version of Simon 3D is being done totally out of house by a company called Epic in Germany. I would expect the Mac release to arrive a good time after the PC, as they are writing the Mac version from our PC source code and with their own 3D engine - therefore it's going to take them a few months after the PC version is finished at least.
This is extremely strange, from our perspective - Simon3D uses the NetImmerse Engine, which, among dozens of other features, is already cross-compatible with Mac and Linux platforms. We will keep digging and bring you more details on Simon 3D very soon. For more general game info, check out the Headfirst web site.
