7:23 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Virtual Programming today announced that it will be porting Gangland, a fast-paced mobster arcade game, and Spartan, an Empire building turn based strategy game, to the Macintosh. In addition, the company has announced that Virtual Grand Prix 2 has gone gold as well as updates on two other games: Victoria and Massive Assault.
First up is Gangland. Gangland offers a unique blend of RTS/RPG/Sim. In it you experience a living city with 800 plus citizens per map. You can setup extortion rackets, bribe, steal, kill, bootleg, seduce, put out contracts, make drive-by hits, blow up buildings, infiltrate opponents, setup gambling parlors, brothels, speak-easies, international connections, and much more.
You'll interact with over 500 npc's, each with individual behaviors. Make your own family from over 20 unique characters and build a business empire on tots of illegal activities.
Gangland for the Mac is due in June.
Spartan is an Empire building turn based strategy game, where the focus is on building an empire through diplomacy, trade, research, and war, but less focus on the battles than you would find in an RTS. It is designed for people who are interested in the period and those strategy gamers who don't want the fast paced click-fest of an RTS and prefer time to think about their decisions.
Spartan for the Mac is due in June.
