1:29 PM | Michael Phillips | Comment on this story

Today, MacPlay announced the first titles to be packaged in their upcoming Value Series. Scheduled to ship in July, the MacPlay Value Series will include a mix of 15 classic & modern titles at the price of $19.99 each.

The press release brings word of new additions to the Value Series such as the military vehicle combat title Incoming, and a repackaging of the classic RPG Fallout. Also added to the list are three titles from German porting house e.p.i.c. Interactive, including Earth 2140, Feeble Files and Knights and Merchants. This is great for those gamers in North America who might have missed out on their limited distribution.

Here's a clip from the MacPlay press release:
