Westlake Projects Page Updates
8:04 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Westlake Interactive has recently updated their news page with word that the port of Age of Empires 2 is now at "Alpha," the next stage after first playable. This title to be published by Peter Tamte's Bold label, and as was announced today, is also being Carbonized for OS X. Alpha status means most of the game's systems are somewhat functional and it shouldn't be too long before it moves into beta testing. Here's the update from Westlake:

Age of Empires II has reached the Alpha milestone, and is proceeding well towards beta.

Much of the game is playable, including network play. We're now working on cleaning up graphics routines and fixing some remaining save game and file I/O code.

Age of Empires II will be published for the Mac by Bold, a divsion of Destineer Studios.

Also of note is that the Westlake project list page has upgraded their still secret 'White' project to First Playable. This is great news, and it's likely we'll find out what White and Stanley might be at the upcoming Macworld Expo this week. Stay tuned to IMG for all the latest.
