Feral: Theme Park Hits OS X, F1 Delay
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Feral Interactive web site was updated over the weekend with news from this UK-based publisher that Sim Theme Park (also called 'Theme Park World') has been Carbonized for OS X, while their anticipated racer, F1 Championship will be slightly delayed beyond its original September release date.

The patch for owners of Sim Theme Park weighs in at just under 3MB and features support for both OS X 10.1.5 and 10.2, as well as OS 9. Along with OS X support, the update fixes a number of bugs in the original title and adds FSAA (full-scene anti-aliasing) for those with the right video cards:

The game engine has been upgraded by adding hardware acceleration and nVidia card support. Also FSAA (Full Screen Anti-Aliasing) support for certain graphics cards has been added. The game also runs significantly faster and with more stability than before.
No word yet on an updated demo, but the new application should run with the old demo data files for now.

F1 Championship fans may be dismayed at news of another delay in the title's release, but Feral assures us this is for quality control purposes and compatibility with OS X 10.2:

We have decided to delay the release of F1 Championship Season 2000 by a month - the new release date is October the 18th. While this news does not endear us to anyone who has been eagerly waiting on this game - extra patience should pay dividends. The additional month is allowing the developers to apply significant further optimization (speed to you and me) and also to incorporate some extra features that have become available with Apple’s release of OS X 10.2 “Jaguar”.

We hope that you will agree the delay was worth it when you see the release.

Check out new screenshots of the game available now on the Feral web site as well.
