Vendetta Test Released for OS X
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Last fall, IMG reported on a new 3D space title from Guild Software coming to Mac OS X called Vendetta. The plan is for Vendetta eventually to be a very open-ended, massively multiplayer online game, allowing players to create their own personalities as space captains. While the full game is still a ways off, Guild Software has decided to release a test version with basic deathmatch and capture-the-flag features to begin working out networking and gameplay issues.

To try out the Vendetta test for OS X, players will first need to create an account and download an auto-updating client that will then grab the necessary 30 MB of files. System requirements for the OS X version follow:

  • An Apple G3 or G4 based system (desktop, iMac, or laptop)
  • 128 MB of system ram
  • A 16 MB 3D-accelerating video card (or better)
  • Mac OS X (the game *does not run* on Mac OS 9)

If you meet these requirements and are interested in testing the game and reporting your findings, head over now to the Vendetta site to create an account and download the client. Stay tuned to IMG for more info as development on the game progresses.
