We recently contacted Contraband Entertainment's Andrew Meggs about the status of the Mac port of Ritual Entertainment's Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2. He notes they are in the testing phase, which should mean the game is almost complete. Here's his response:
It's presently in compatibility testing. Not much else to report. A FAKK2 is a third-person action/adventure game from which will be published by Gathering of Developers. It has been garnering very positive reviews on the PC side, even though it is based on the risque Heavy Metal movies. The game is based on the Quake 3 engine, one reason for the relatively quick port to the Mac OS.
demo release, if it happens, would happen after it's certified by
In other FAKK2 news, FGOnline has posted a quote from Ritual's Robert Atkins regarding the possibility of future sequels to the game. Here's a clip:
We have the story to the sequel ready and we will develop it internally. We want to grow the property and Ritual Entertainment will work on all future versions.They also have comments from Atkins on the multiplayer patch currently in development which we reported on earlier this week. It will allow players to deathmatch against each other and should be compatible with the Mac version.
