IMG Feature: OmniGroup and PopCap Team Up
12:56 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG recently had the chance to swing by the OmniGroup offices for a visit. We chatted with Wil Shipley, vice president of the company about their new relationship with popular online game maker PopCap. He explains how their ports work, how they differ from concurrent boxed versions of games from MacPlay, and future plans for releases, including the now-finished Big Money.  

Here's a clip from the feature:

While Omni is responsible for big-name ports like Giants: Citizen Kabuto and Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix, PopCap games are particularly popular with the arguably more abundant 'casual gaming' crowd. Titles like Bejeweled and Alchemy are hits thanks to their online Java versions, but now Mac gamers are able to play them anytime, anywhere, and with more features thanks to these ports from Omni. The downloadable OS X versions of PopCap games are just right for stocking stuffers with low prices, good graphics, and addictive gameplay.
