IMG Interviews Destineer's Peter Tamte
12:28 PM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Destineer's Peter Tamte spoke with IMG's very own Michael Phillips recently for an interview. Now posted on IMG, Mac gamers can see for themselves just what its like to work in the gaming industry. Tamte and Phillips cover a wide-array of topics, Destineer's status, its games, both future, present, and past (including Halo), OS X development, Tamte's take on piracy, and a whole lot more.

Here's a snippit from the interview:

Mike Phillips: Is piracy a problem on the Mac? Could Mac publishers be doing more to curb piracy?

Peter Tamte: I don't understand why someone who would never walk into CompUSA and steal a game would steal the same game over the Internet. Is the threat of punishment the only reason not to do something you know is wrong?

Yes, piracy is an enormous problem on the Mac. It's one of the key reasons why games aren't coming to the Mac simultaneously right now. It's all about economics to publishers!!!! It's all about the math, and pirates make the problem grossly worse on the Mac because it's a smaller market.

I think for a while it was easier to steal Mac games on the Internet than to find them in stores. But, that's not true anymore.

We have not been taking active measures to copy-protect our games. I hate punishing the innocent. But, we may not have a choice in the future...

You can check out the full interview for more information and insights, only at IMG.
