"Survivor" Games Coming to Mac OS
10:44 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Fans of the television show "Survivor" on CBS may soon have a way to rough it on their own virtual desert island. An article posted on PCIGN this morning reveals that Infogrames has secured the rights to develop Survivor-themed titles for a variety of platforms, from PC to console to GameBoy. Included in the list of platforms is the Mac OS and the publisher is WizardWorks, the parent company in some respects of MacSoft.

While no details are offered on what the titles' actual contents will be like, but it seems there will be some effort to replicate the survivor experience for players. Here's an excerpt from the article:

Publisher Infogrames Entertainment announced today that, in a deal with CBS Consumer Products, it has secured the rights to publish games based on the popular television show Survivor in the US and Canada for next-generation systems, handhelds, PC and Macintosh.

While Infogrames has not yet confirmed which game platforms will first see the Survivor series, it did announce that the first title would ship later this year. The game, based on the second season, is being published by Infogrames' WizardWorks division and developed by Magic Lantern Playware, a software house which has traditionally worked on PC offerings.

"Survivor has captivated and attracted legions of viewers around the world, and we’re excited to partner with CBS Consumer Products in bringing this phenomenally popular series to a new medium for fans to enjoy,” said Paul Rinde, senior vice president and general manager of WizardWorks. “We’re confident that we can meld all of the key aspects of the Survivor concept with the latest technology to create immersive and compelling games with broad appeal to a huge gaming audience.”

It will be quite some time before these games are developed or released, but we're sure the Survivor franchise will still be attracting audiences. Follow the link for the rest of the article.
