6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In a cheerful announcement, Westlake Interactive has revealed the release of The Sims: Hot Date makes 50 game titles officially shipped by the company. The rise of this much beloved porting house directly coincides with the regeneration of Mac gaming in general, and it should be a spot of pride to see so many great titles having been shipped over its young life as a company. In celebration of the event, Westlake is also offering fans company merchandise via the popular CafePress web site. Here's the full press release:

"When we started the company almost five years ago, we had one goal - to get really cool games on the Mac. We've succeeded beyond our wildest dreams - it's amazing to look back at the number of games we've shipped, from those early days of doing Unreal and Falcon 4 to our latest games like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault" said Glenda Adams, Westlake's president.

Westlake currently employs eight full time programmers and has several top games in development for the Christmas season, including the recently announced Star Wars® Jedi Knight® II: Jedi Outcast™, originally developed for the PC by LucasArts and Raven Software, to be published for the Macintosh by Aspyr Media. "We've got some of the best programming talent in the industry working for us. We couldn't have reached this important milestone without their incredible work" said vice-president Phil Sulak.

"The Mac gaming market is doing very well, and Westlake is very excited about the new games we're working on for Christmas and beyond. Mac gamers should see some some huge announcements from us over the coming months, it's definitely going to a fun time to be a Mac gamer" added Glenda.

Be sure to head over and read through their impressive list of games, as well as check out their Westlake-branded clothing. Congrats to everyone at the company, and here's to another 50 games!
