Mac Shogo Status
9:42 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
While researching a previous article on the LithTech engine, we contacted Hyperion Software to discover the status of Mac Shogo: Mobile Armored Division, a first-person shooter with some unique features. Hyperion began the port of this title in Winter of last year, and it has been delayed several times so far, but as they reassured us, Mac Shogo is still on track:
We are happy to report that things are looking very good right now with the hardware renderer almost fully working the way we want it (we are introducing dynamic lightmapping currently) and some remaining issues to be addressed like memory consumption as we want to reach out to the largest possible audience including people with only 64MB of memory. Excellent news! This Fall is shaping up nicely, don't you agree? Shogo is an interesting shooter with quite a following on the PC side; it features the ability to play as the pilot of a 30-foot armored mech, rather than just a puny human. For more information, visit the Shogo web site.
Shogo: Mobile Armored Division
We anticipate a release candidate by the end of August and are considering releasing a playable demo of Shogo at that time.
