The German site Krawall has interviewed Ben Voris from Hyperion Software, the company working on many Mac and Amiga ports of popular PC games. While the bulk of the Q&A focuses on their Amiga work, he does give an overview of their games for the "alternative market", including their Mac ports. Here's a clip:
Shogo : on Amiga, Linux and Mac. Based on our port of the LithTech-engine by Monolith. Shogo should hopefully be completed also by the end of Q3 2000. This is slightly disappointing news about Shogo, which was set to be released earlier this year. We're hoping the Soldier of Fortune port will move along more quickly and be out in time for the busy Christmas season.
Krawall Hyperion Interview
Soldier of Fortune : Amiga and Mac. Probably the best opportunity for the alternative gaming community. SOF is the hyper-realistic critically acclaimed ego shooter from Raven which brings new sensations to gamers. Moreover, the game was released for Windows only a few months ago. Alternative gamers won't have to wait for years before having such great games. It’s slated for the end of the year.
Alien Nations (in Germany known as “Die Voelker”): we are only handling the Amiga and Linux versions but a Mac version will also be available from our publisher Titan. It’s a Real Time Strategy game in the vain of the Settlers series.
