Knights of Zarria Coming to Mac OS?
1:39 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

A random stroll past OpenGL.org led us to Knights of Zarria, an OpenGL-based title in development which draws its inspiration from the classic arcade title Gauntlet. This top-down game with 3D graphics takes the shoot-em-up style of Gauntlet and the arcade hit Smash TV and mixes it with 4-player multiplayer for an explosive experience; even though the game is still in early development, the visuals are quite good -- and the game even supports red/blue 3D glasses.


However this is the part of the game's FAQ that caught our eye:

What platforms will be supported?

The initial release will be for Microsoft Windows.  I'd like to do Linux and Macintosh releases once the game is finished.
The game is currently available as a test release for Windows. We've contacted the author to inquire about a timetable for a possible Mac release; maybe Mac OS X will allow him to speed up the porting process. In any case this is yet another game to look forward to -- perhaps it would be good for those interested to send the developer a note encouraging the development of a Mac OS version.
