MacPlay's Henry Price sent word this morning sure to be welcome to fans of AD&D-based Mac gaming:

Short and sweet...

Icewind Dale for Mac is Shipping!

Developed for the PC by Black Isle and converted to the Mac by Contraband Entertainment, Icewind Dale is a fantasy role-playing game set in the Forgotten Realms.
In the northernmost reaches of the Forgotten Realms lies the frozen and untamed region known as Icewind Dale. Journey deep into the Spine of the World mountains, a harsh and unforgiving territory teeming with fearsome and merciless beasts. There you must confront an ancient evil that threatens to unleash an unspeakable horror upon the face of Faerun.
Based on the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rule set, Icewind Dale uses BioWare's Infinity engine, familiar to players of the original Baldur's Gate from GraphSim.

According to MacPlay:

Icewind Dale features improved graphics for advanced 3D effects that will leave you spellbound. With a new interface and streamlined player control, there's nothing to stand between you and glory; nothing except for 70 types of new monsters and some of the most formidable combat you'll ever encounter.
