MW: United Developers Brings 4 Titles
11:51 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
We've had a tough time keeping our mouth shut about this one, but now the story can be told - a new company has formed, headed by Ritual CEO Ron Dimant, to publish titles for the Mac OS. Joined by Contraband Entertainment and Logicware, United Developers will bring four games to the Mac OS within the next eight weeks - the first-person shooter SiN, its expansion pack Wages of SiN, the WW II flight sim Fighter Storm (formerly known as Screaming Demons Over Europe) and a spectacular RTS by Hasbro Interactive known as Majesty.
SiN is a classic shooter from the PC side; using the Quake 2 engine, this is a sci-fi adventure with great visuals and lots of powerful weapons to brutalize your foes with. The expansion pack takes the game even further, and this game is considered an underapreciated gem by many games sites.
Majesty isn't just an RTS, it is an entire kingdom simulator, set in a fantasy Medival world. Combining magic and combat with economic and environment simulations, the goal is to build your kingdom and defend it against ecroaching forces. When you get strong enough, you can wage war against others and try to rule the land. Here is an excerpt from Gamecenter.com's review of this title (they gave it an 8 out of 10):
Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim is an epic, heroic, and even regal game for voyeurs. If The Sims is a dollhouse, Majesty is a complete set of action figures. It's the perfect real-time strategy game that succeeds where others fail. Some titles in the genre are dull variations on the same theme: build, attack, repeat as necessary. Majesty offers something different: a reason to play, an emotional connection, and something to watch beyond unit animations and explosion effects.Read the rest of the review for more. Looks like we have another company bringing games to the Mac OS, and that can't be a bad thing, can it?
