Mac NWN 'Playable', New Screens
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Bioware has again updated their page dedicated to the upcoming Mac version of Neverwinter Nights, noting the game is once-again "playable." This 3D RPG is being developed in-house by the company and will be published for the Mac by MacSoft upon completion.

In the new update they note the port's graphics are now back on track as well as the some input issues being fixed. The next big steps to undertake are in-game movies and sound. Here's the full update:

We have the in-game graphics mostly working this week and resolved some input issues. We also tracked down some rogue unswapped bytes that were causing problems. The game is basically playable again on the Mac, with some serious quirks. We will likely proceed with hooking up sound and movies next week. Added 3 pictures of us stepping through character creation.
Three new screenshots of the game running on a Mac are also available now, so head over to Bioware's Mac page to give them a look. Stay tuned to IMG for more information as the game nears release.
