Gettysburg Released for Mac
11:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

By Design sends word today that Gettysburg, their latest Mac-only war simulation, is now ready for release. This civil war re-creation puts you in the middle of the action on July 1-3, 1863 with the Union fighting the Confederacy. One of the main features of Gettysburg is your ability to play on either side of the battle, or even switch between the two. Other features of the game include capturing enemy flags, realistic military rankings, and detailed graphics.

Here's a partial list of features from their Web page:

  • Regimental level conflict, command hundreds of unit!
  • Great new graphics, see hedge rows, streams, chateaux, and smoke clouds hang over the battlefield.
  • Skirmishers!
  • All the commanders down to the Division level are present.
  • Command your units as groups. You can move hundreds of units with a click of the mouse.
  • Capture enemies flags. Increase the pride of your troops when they carry back enemy flags from a melee.
Check out the Gettysburg page for much more, and be sure to download the demo available now to get a taste of how the game plays. The title features very low system requirements, so it should be playable on almost any modern hardware. Gettysburg needs only System 7, 10 MB of RAM, a 12" color monitor, and a 68030 or PPC processor.
