Apple Looks at Age of Mythology
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Adding yet another notch to their games section, Apple has posted a feature on Age of Mythology, the upcoming RTS title being brought to the Mac courtesy of MacSoft. A warfare title with a mythological bent, AoM will allow players to play as one of several civilizations, using both the fantastic as well as the mundane in order to wage war.

The preview covers several angles, including the inspiration behind the various game ideas as well as designer Ian Fischer's favorite strategem:

Fischer notes that he prefers the Norse because they suit his favorite strategy for success. I like to get walls up early and then race to attack my opponent, he says. If you start putting a dent in someone, the thing that usually halts your progress is an enemy force showing up in your town to disrupt the villagers working there.
Also covered in detail in the preview are the various gods particular to each culture, both major and minor, as well as a list of cheats for those that plan on needing a bit of help against the computer AI.
