Westlake Porting Max Payne, Muse
9:13 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Westlake Interactive has announced that the company is porting the popular third-person shooter Max Payne to the Mac. Developed by Remedy Entertainment and produced by 3D Realms, Max Payne is a story-driven game about a man on the edge, fighting for justice while uncovering plot twists and twisted thugs in the gritty bowels of New York during the century's worst blizzard. The game, when completed, will be published by MacSoft. Here's Westlake's update on Max Payne:

Westlake is pleased to announce that our good friends at MacSoft and Take Two Interactive have chosen us to help bring Max Payne to the Macintosh. Combining photo-digitized textures, radiosity lighting, hardware T&L, and the butt-kicking feature of Bullet-Time™ gameplay, Max Payne will be a tour-de-force of Macintosh gaming.

Previously referred to as Project Morphine on the Westlake Project Status page, Max is still in early development so we don't have much news yet. But Cary Farrier, the newest member of the Westlake family, has already put in plenty of late nights on the code. We expect that Mac gamers will have their hands full when Max is released next year.

Westlake has also updated their project status page with a new title, currently codenamed Muse. If you have any guesses as to what Muse might be, check out our forums where lively guessing on Westlake codenames usually occurs.
