No Silver for U.S.
3:11 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
The console-style RPG Silver has long been dangled before the grasping fingers of Mac gamers. Again and again the schedule for the Mac port slipped, delaying the title an entire year and several months. It was shown in the GT/MacSoft booth at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo in May, running on an iMac, and seemed to be complete at that point, but still it did not ship.
Early in July we began to receive messages from French readers of IMG saying that the Mac OS version of Silver was now available on the Continent. Earlier today, we received confirmation that Mac Silver is available in the UK and Germany as well. However, a US version of this title has yet to ship, and there are currently no plans for such a release.
We contacted Al Schilling of GT Interactive/MacSoft, and he confirmed that there are currently no plans for MacSoft to publish a US version of this title. He also left the possibility open that another publisher might create a US version of this title.
MacGold Direct (UK)
Of course, there is always the possibility of purchasing the game from an overseas retailer and shipping it to the US, but this is surprisingly difficult; the UK retailer we found that is stocking the game, MacGold, no longer ships to the US. We'll keep investigating this issue and see if we can find a way to get Silver into the hands of US gamers. In the meantime, if you have managed to get a copy of Silver in any country, post how you obtained it and your thoughts on the game in general on the comments thread of this article.
