The Gamesome Mac Talks with The Omni Group
6:03 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Tonight on The Gamesome Mac, the weekly Mac gaming radio show, producer Omaha Sternberg and I will be talking with Wil Shipley, Ken Case, and Tim Wood, founders of The Omni Group.

The Omni Group is one of the premier Mac OS X software development houses. Their game porting work stretches from Doom for NeXTStep, through work on the various Quake games, to Cocoa versions of Oni and Giants: Citizen Kabuto.

Last week, The Omni Group announced an agreement to port five further games to Mac OS X for MacPlay, including Freedom Force and Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix.

As we do every week, we'll serve up news, reviews, and commentary, answer listener questions along with our guests, and give away some great games in the show's live chat room.

The Gamesome Mac can be heard on Mondays from 8 to 10 pm Central Time (6 pm Pacific; 9 pm Eastern; Tuesday, 01:00 UTC) on the MacTV Network.

You can tune in live at The Gamesome Mac's web page, where you'll also find archives of past shows. QuickTime and a 28 kbps or faster Internet connection are required for listening (broadcasts are optimized for 56K modems).
