Puzzle Pirates Coming to OS X
9:05 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates, a new massive multiplayer online role-playing game with a swashbuckling theme, has just reached the public beta state, and the developers have brought exciting news to Mac gamers. According to their recently added FAQ, a Mac OS X version of the game's client is already in the works, and should be available soon.

Q. What platform is Yohoho! for?

Puzzle Pirates runs in Java 1.4 on Windows (XP, 2000, ME, 98), Linux and, coming soon, Mac OSX.

We are developing Yohoho! in Java on Linux. For the curious, Yohoho!'s server is also written in Java, and runs on Linux. We are planning to release our game toolkit as open source software, sometime after we launch the game and get everything shipshape.

IMG's Matt Diamond has also started a new thread in our Forums for discussion on the upcoming game. Be sure to check out the Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates homepage and the forum thread for more details, and stay tuned as we keep you up to date on the game's progress.
