A recent forum thread at the messageboards of the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game (MMORPG) A Tale in the Desert seems to indicate this Windows/Linux title could still be on its way to the Mac in the coming months. A Tale in the Desert prides itself as a nonviolent game which focuses on building your character and your community. Like other MMORPG's, the game has a monthly fee, but with A Tale in the Desert, you can download the initial client for free.

The game will end when a major monument of each of the seven disciplines of man is completed. Then after a short break the second 'telling' will start. The game will roughly be the same, but things like charcoal and seed growing will have different formula's.
