7:36 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
In the June Aspyr update, the company surprised us with the annoucement that they bringing the highly acclaimed thriller FPS Clive Barker's Undying to the Mac. Westlake Interactive has confirmed they are already underway with the port (which was listed as 'Peroxide' on their status page), and it is hoped to reach beta as early as Macworld New York next month. How could it be ported so quickly? The game is based on the Unreal Tournament engine -- which Westlake has a ton of experience with -- and so we'll hopefully see something later in the summer.
Undying is not a game for the kiddies, as Clive Barker is adept at horror, and reviews of the PC version indicate the game is quite scary. You fight against the spooks with a mix of mortal and arcane weaponry. Fans and critics looking for a thrill have given much praise to Undying as a successful and freaky title. Here's an excerpt from the newsletter with more info:
1899-At the Island of the Standing Stones, Jeremiah Covenant and his Undying should be available for preorder soon at the Aspyr web store. For much more information, check out the official site at EA (though leave the lights on, just to be safe).
