Torque Shooter Legends Seeks Mac Developer
9:45 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

News at the newly designed GarageGames website includes information on a freeware shooter called Legends: The Game. While the team behind Legends currently supports Windows and Linux executables, they are looking for a Mac developer to help get an OS X version up-to-speed.

Having just entered a public beta phase, Legends it looking to round off the hard edges as well as include Mac users before its final release. Here's more on the gameplay itself:

Gameplay is not the strafe-strafe-jump-strafe-shoot-strafe-run-like-hell style a lot of games espouse; the addition of a jetpack adds a third dimension of mobility that makes skill, forethought, and restraint necessities to winning.

Team sizes are ideal between 10 and 15 on each side, and the network code allows 56k upwards to play smoothly. Game type offerings range from the classic Capture the Flag, Deathmatch and Duel to our own new types, e.g.. 'War'.

If you think you're up to the task of helping the team out with some Mac programming know-how, check out the Legends site now. With the Torque engine the game is based on already cross-platform, hopefully the task should be already greatly underway.
