While Inside Mac Games is indeed focused on bringing you the latest news, reviews and features covering the ever-expanding field of Mac games, we also realize the value of history -- the ability to look back at where we have been and gather those details that bring depth and breadth to a simple news item. We also realize that not every one of you has the time or inclination to stop by every day, or might be new to the Mac gaming world and would like to see how it has developed over the years. IMG has been there practically every step of the way, and while we can't put all seven years of coverage on the Web -- there wasn't even a web site until five years ago -- we can use the power of our database-driven news system to allow you to mine our archives for past nuggets of information.

To aid your searches through IMG's tremendous amount of coverage we have improved our search page, allowing you greater flexibility and power to choose criteria and methods. While the search page is still slightly too hard to find -- a situation that will be remedied soon -- we hope the extra options we have added will make it easier to find what you're looking for. For instance, if you wanted to see the past articles on Max Payne, you'd simply type 'Payne' in the box and hit search; as there aren't many stories in the archive regarding that game (which wasn't announced as coming to the Mac OS until very recently) you wouldn't need to narrow the search. However, there are 346 articles in the database containing the word "Quake", so you'll probably want to narrow the search considerably; perhaps by typing in "Quake 2" and choosing Headline Only. More complex searches can uncover some real gems from gaming history -- for example, a search for all games "based" on the "Unreal" "engine" limited to 2000 uncovers the titles Dark Sector, Shadows of Reality and Alien Leigon, none of which survived to become commercial releases for either platform despite their potential.

The engine also allows you to constrain your searches to a particular event, such as E3 2000 or MWSF 2001. We've included some sample searches below just for fun -- go on, check out the history of Mac gaming. It is truly incredible how far we have come in such a short time.
