Freeverse Ports to OS X
1:45 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

A while back we reported that card and board game maker Freeverse has been "Carbonizing" their diverse line of games to run natively on Mac OS X. We caught up with them to get more information on the status of this process. Colin Lynch Smith told us that Bryan Pietrazak just recently had a baby (well done), so no work will be done this week, but as soon as he comes back, he will be working quite hard to get the games ready to run on Mac OS Public Beta. They are planning on getting all of the ports ready before Macworld San Francisco, which is coming up quite soon. Here is their update:

The carbonizing is going pretty well. Bryan Pietrazak, who is doing the work
just had a baby a couple of days ago. That means he won't be doing any more
work this week but should get a LOT of work done after that, during the
remainder of his paternity leave.

We also just posted a $500 bounty for carbonizing Apple's OpenPlay, one of
the underlying technologies of the HMS Freeverse card game server. We've had
a couple of bites already and once we get someone working on that we should
have all the pieces covered.

We hope to have all of the 3D card games carbonized by Macworld, and
certainly done by the time OS X ships in May.

Make sure to check back soon, as they have previously said that they will be releasing new patches for their existing titles. Check and try out their latest game, Setback AKA Pitch.
