IMG Interviews Lineage's Jake Song
1:17 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has posted an interview with Jake Song, lead programmer of Lineage: The Blood Pledge, the massively multiplayer online role-playing game from NCsoft that is the largest of its kind in the world.

The Mac OS X client for Lineage recently entered public beta testing, and Song comments on this development:

IMG: It seems like your download servers were busy for a while during the Mac beta release. How has the initial response been from Mac testers?

Jake Song: We've been extremely pleased with the first week of our beta launch. The players appear to be excited about finally getting a chance to play a MMORPG on the Mac... at this level. I think the excitement really started at Macworld when we were honored with a best of show award. There's been a ton of anticipation ever since.

The Mac players appear to be having a great time and many are quickly learning to enjoy the social aspects of the game. We've noticed that several are already participating in castle sieges so they're getting the hang of things pretty quick.
