Kohan Games Coming to the Mac?
8:24 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
In the IMG Forums, some intrepid readers have dug up a very interesting bit of information from TimeGate Studios about their much-acclaimed fantasy strategy series, Kohan. The company's first real-time strategy title, Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns, surprised many in the PC press, winning a number of awards upon its release last year for Windows and Linux. TimeGate then followed it up last fall with a standalone prequel expansion to Sovereigns called Kohan: Ahriman's Gift.
Both games feature an amazing AI which is able to take care of the many tedious tasks found in many RTS titles, allowing the player to focus on bigger issues like city-building and preparing for war without having to micromanage.
When asked about the possibilities of a Mac version of either game, TimeGate's Adel Chaveleh made it sound more like a question of when it will happen rather than if if would happen. Here's a clip from his response to IMG reader ground-LOBP-:
We are working diligently on closing a deal to bring all current and future Kohan games to the Mac platform. Please stay tuned to our website as we should be making the announcement soon.With their support for Linux, it's already clear that TimeGate is willing and able to look at other platforms. Hopefully we'll be able to bring you an official announcement about the game soon, so stay tuned.
