Masters of Orion III Interview
11:11 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

On Friday we brought you news that the developers for Masters of Orion III: The Fifth X were interested in making a Mac version of this game, and are already pursuing a distribution deal. Though nothing has been announced officially as of yet, this is great news for fans of this turn-based strategy series.

Moo3.net has recently interviewed Rob Barris, a senior engineer at Quicksilver working on MOO3. Here's an excerpt:

What are your hopes for the future of MOO3? What is one idea that you would like to see in the game but will not be implemented ( because of technical concerns or otherwise )?

We all recognize that there are a big number of people out there, that have pretty strong feelings about the MOO series and what they expect from the third installment ( even a short glance at the message boards on www.moo3.com make it clear ). So there is always this pressure not just to make things great, but make them accessible and not too far-out from the MOO universe that everyone knows. My hope would be that it becomes a game that is familiar to the fan base, and also attractive to the "New MOOers", with cool surprises for everybody.

Check out the rest of the Q&A for more about Barris, and the project in general. As we've noted, there has been no official announcement about a Mac MOO3 version, though we'll keep you posted if any new information becomes available. The game is still in the conceptual stages and should be out late next year.
