IMG recently exchanged some information with PomPom, the UK company responsible for the excellent 3D shareware title Space Tripper. Artist Michael Michael let us know about their further plans for the game, which includes a publishing deal in the near future. He's hoping the deal will be finalized soon, with this game appearing on store shelves sometime this Fall. That's great news, though anyone who has played the game will realize its quality and polish would be appealing to a publisher as well as to the casual gamer.
We also received some details on a possible OS X version of the game. It seems they've been hung up by a few issues under Apple's new operating system, and are in the process of trying to work them out now. Here's a clip:

We've pointed them towards the Apple games devlist as a good place to start. As it stands, the OS 9 version runs great on a variety of hardware. If you haven't yet checked it out, head over to MacGameFiles now and try the demo -- we just can't stop playing this game, and we highly encourage anyone and everyone with 8 MB of VRAM to give this one a try. It's being rated a 5 out of 5 by MGF users, so also be sure to add your thoughts after you try it out.

problems with OS-X, as the 9.x version was finished some time ago.
We decided to release the OS9 version anyway as we don't know exactly
when or if we can sort out the OS-X problems.
