V12 Needs Mac Tester/Developers
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

GarageGames' Jeff Tunnell has put out a call for beta testers for their powerful new 3D game engine known as V12. This Tribes 2-based game engine needs some Mac developers to give it a once-over in preparation for the Mac release. David Chait is now bringing the Mac build up-to-speed with the PC version, which was released earlier this month. Those looking to test will have the $100 licensing fee waived, along with the opportunity to start their V12-based games a little earlier. Here's the scoop:

If you have experience developing Mac games or other C++ applications for the Mac, then you may have a little fun trying out the Mac V12 Beta. As compensation, you get a little fame, plus the knowledge that you get to work on an incredibly cool engine that will someday power hundreds of games on the Mac platform. We'll knock off the $100 V12 licensing fee, so your upfront costs for the V12 are $0.

For your part, you will have to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, see if the code compiles and builds, and report your findings and bugs into a protected forum. Once the testing is complete, you can get on with making your own game.

If you're a budding Mac developer with a healthy knowledge of C++, consider dropping GarageGames a note.
