Mac FAKK2 Status
10:08 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Yesterday we noted that the PC version of Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2 was set to go Gold and should be shipping to distributors very soon. Of course we immediately inquired as to how the Mac version, currently being ported by Contraband Entertainment, was progressing. Andrew Meggs was gracious enough to send us a quick reply:

I'm trailing their version by 48-72 hours,
typically. In the best scenario, the Mac version will be out in 3-4
weeks. I can't make any promises
or be more specific because at this point most of the work involves
managing QA, getting it into a box, and getting the box into
distribution channels -- all of which is on the publisher's end.
While it's good to hear the Mac OS version is so close behind the PC original, we hope the Gathering of Developers can get the Mac version published more quickly than that - we can't wait to play this one! We'll keep you posted if the situation changes.
