The UK-based Mac publisher Feral has posted a site update recently with new information on their many upcoming titles. The biggest news is regarding Championship Manager 01/02, which now has its own section in the Feral site. This popular 'football' management sim will have a demo release on October 23. The full version will also be officially released for the Mac on November 16, only about a month after the Windows version. The delay may actually be a bonus for Mac users. as many real-life player trades will be made in the next month. Therefore, the information in the Mac version should be more up-to-date out of the box.
The new CM 01/02 sub-site contains lots of good information, screen shots, and more details the game. Fans will definitely want to head over for a look. Along with a good list of the game's features, the official system requirements are posted:
Your Macintosh must have:
- Mac OS 8.6
- A Power PC processor running at 120 MHz
- 64 MB of RAM (with virtual memory set to at least 128 Mb)
- 200 MB free disk space (this allows room for a saved game!)
- 800x600 pixel resolution on your screen
- CD-ROM drive
- Ethernet (only required for Network play)
- Mac OS X
- A G3 running at 333 MHz or a G4 processor
- 128 MB of RAM
- 16-bit colour at 800x600 (a.k.a. Thousands of colours)
Other updates from Feral concerns the god-game Black & White, which is now in beta testing. This is great news, as the game will hopefully be finished by the end of the year. New screen shots from the Mac version of this "knackering" port should be posted starting this week. While no update has yet been made as of this writing, head over to the B&W site for the goodies as they arrive.
Feral will be the publisher responsible for bringing the Mac port of Max Payne to its European market, while MacSoft worries about North America. According to the quick Feral update, it seems the actual porting work has yet to be started. While this is unfortunate, they are hoping for a relatively quick turn-around with a release next spring. We'll keep you posted as any new information on Max Payne is released.
