MacPlay Announces Value Series
12:12 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

MacPlay announced today its plans to bring value-priced games to market, officially titled the MacPlay Value Series. The initial configuration includes 12 titles in a freestanding display, offering the Macintosh consumer a selection of classic favorites along with some completely new titles for the platform.

Titles scheduled for the initial launch include Bejeweled, Zork Grand Inquisitor, Birdie Shoot, Jinni Zeala Pinball, HeXen II, and Majesty. Additional titles will be announced shortly, and MacPlay expects to update the assortment every 90 days as new titles become available.

Here's more from MacPlay's press release:

"The MacPlay Value Series was created with the sole purpose of providing a steady flow of great product to the Macintosh market," said Mark Cottam, President of MacPlay. "Over the years, the Mac gamer has enjoyed access to some of the best 'AAA' games from the Windows platform, but there has been a complete lack of quality games at the $20 price point." Cottam added, "Our goal at MacPlay is to deliver the best content at the fairest price. Based on the success of the MacPlay Value Series, I think you will see even more games on the Mac, and perhaps the development of some original gaming content."

MacPlay's Value Series is the newest vehicle for highly acclaimed games for both OS X and the classic platform. Some titles will be new to the Mac gaming community and others will be classic favorites. The MacPlay Value Series covers several different genres and provides compelling content for both the casual and serious gamer. The initial product assortment includes Puzzles, 3D Action, Adventure, Role Playing and First Person Shooters.

"We want to bring our consumers more dynamic products that really add value to their collection," said Henry Price, Director of Sales and Marketing for MacPlay. "Through the value series we will be able to offer great titles that everyone can enjoy without draining their wallets."

The MacPlay Value Series will start appearing at participating retail stores beginning in mid-June, as well as through MacPlay's online store.
