Feral Announces Black & White (Finally)
9:03 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In one of the admittedly worst-kept secrets of the year, Feral has finally confirmed they are bringing Black & White to the Mac. An update to their main page contains a link to a whole new section of their site devoted to the complex god game. Black & White puts you in control of the world, giving you control of both its people and a powerful 'creature' which you raise in your image. Here's the good news from Feral:

We are delighted to announce that Feral will be publishing Black & White for the Mac.

Strangely and yes, yes, uncharacteristically, we are sort of lost for words on Black & White except to say it's an amazing game. All the more amazing for being just about as good as its own hype.

There is a good amount of info on the game, including screenshots and a FAQ, at the Feral site, so be sure to head over and read through it. There is no definite release date given, though earlier reports from Lionhead (the original developers) indicated a Mac version would be out towards the end of the year. You can be sure we'll bring you more info on the Mac port of Black & White when the port's status is known. As for who will publish the title, we expect an announcement soon; Feral's partnership with Aspyr Media in the past is no secret, so that may be an important factor in their decision.
