MWSF: Neverwinter Nights Update
3:48 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games this morning spoke with MacSoft's Al Schilling to get an update on their long-awaited RPG, Neverwinter Nights. The news is that there's some good news and some bad news.

First, the good news. According to MacSoft's Al Schilling, Neverwinter Nights is practically complete and will be shipping sometime in the first quarter of 2003. The game is well into testing and is being shown at the Bold booth as well as the Apple Games Pavilion and is drawing great crowds.

There is, however, some bad news for those who were looking forward to the NWN Toolset. Schilling said that they've decided to cancel the port of the toolset. He told IMG that the development of the toolset had to be halted because it would have taken over a year to port it to the Mac. Schilling explained that the project to port the toolset was underway, but as the developers (Omni Group) dug deeper into the code, the estimate grew from 6 months to over a year of development time. So instead of delaying the game another 6 months, the hard decision to cancel the toolset was made.

MacSoft plans to ship the game shortly. IMG will be posting a preview of NWN based on a recent beta soon. Let the flames begin...
