TransGaming today announced an agreement with video game developer BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts, to bring the award-winning title, Jade Empire: Special Edition, to the Mac. TransGaming’s digital distribution portal, GameTree Online, has made the title available immediately to the Mac community for purchase via direct download.

More about the game:

Jade Empire Special Edition is set in an ancient and mysterious world where players can choose to act as a noble hero or treacherous villain by following the path of the ‘Open Palm’ or the ‘Closed Fist’.  Players will face powerful human and supernatural foes, learn magical martial arts and weapons styles, and discover the darkest secrets of the world. Jade Empire Special Edition engages users with its rich story line and optimizes the gaming experience with graphical upgrades, enhanced resolution and exclusive content.  Jade Empire™ has won numerous awards including Game of the Year, RPG of the Year, Best Story, Best Sound and Best Original Soundtrack.

Jade Empire Special Edition for Mac was made possible using TransGaming's Cider TM Portability Engine, that acts as a "wrapper" around the game software, enabling it to run seamlessly on Intel-based Macs.  The partnership extends TransGaming's publishing and developer network and offers both parties a revenue-sharing model related to Mac game sales.

“The addition of Jade Empire Special Edition to GameTree Online illustrates the commitment TransGaming and leading developers like BioWare have in serving the Mac gaming community with high quality games,” commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming.  “Our Cider technology allows us to rapidly enable and deploy high quality games and Jade Empire Special Edition is another example of the exceptional calibre of games we are pleased to be delivering to the ever growing Mac gaming community.”
