Survivor Goes Gold
11:16 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

MacSoft have announced that, just one week after the PC version shipped, the Mac version of Survivor: The Interactive Game, based on the "reality-based" television series, has survived development and been declared final. It will ship to retailers in December.


Here's the description of the game from MacSoft's press release:

The first release in the Survivor series of interactive games announced by MacSoft, an Infogrames Inc. label, was developed for the Mac by alt.software. The inaugural edition features the real-life casts from the first two Survivor television series - Pulau Tiga and Australia - and incorporates many of the exciting elements from the show including the infamous Immunity Challenges and Tribal Council.


In Survivor: The Interactive Game, players may choose cast members from the first or second season or create their own character. When creating a character, players must allocate points across ten different skill categories. The strategies deployed must compliment the skill sets of a player, as they will greatly impact the player's ability to survive the Tribal Council and nature's elements.


Once the game begins, each player chooses a role or task to complete, such as cooking, hunting, fishing or fire tender. The decisions made will affect the players standing within the group and can either hurt or help when Tribal Council arrives. At Tribal Council, players will get the opportunity to vote off other remaining survivors and experience all of the rituals featured in the television.

MacSoft's web site describes the game as requiring Mac OS 8.6 or higher, a 350 MHz G3 or faster, 64 MB RAM, and an ATI Rage 128 or better.
