New Feral Game Bundles Announced
9:15 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

With a week to go before American Thanksgiving, the traditional start of the holiday buying season, Mac game publishers Feral Interactive have announced two new game bundles.

The British company's Family Fun Pack contains four games fit for the whole family: Electronic Arts' Sim Theme Park gives users the opportunity to build their own theme park, complete with rides, animals, and all the popcorn and candy stores that go with it, and even allows users to experience their parks through a first person view. Herding "simulator" Sheep puts players in the shoes of intergalactic sheperds, herding the animals through 28 flocktastic levels, from gently-rolling grassy knolls to hazardous space scenes.

Worms Blast, a Puzzle Bobble-style family game involving cartoony worm characters knocking multicolored blocks out of the air with their own personal bazookas, is also included in the bundle. The Zoombinis Island Odyssey, a new title for Feral, rounds out the package. In this logic and math skills educational title, players must help the cute little Zoombinis save their island from the clutches of their evil nemesis, the Fleens.

Feral's Big Metal Box, aimed at more mature audiences, contains the gritty, graphic-novel based Max Payne, the third-person shooter about the undercover cover cop who's been done wrong. Black & White, the god game, puts users in charge of a little island, and are handed the task of overlooking their island paradise with the help of hand-raised creatures. F1 Championship Season 2000 puts players behind the wheels of their own state-of-the-art racing vehicle, while the controversial Oni, one of the last games to be produced by award-winning game developers Bungie Studios before their sale, chronicles the adventures of Konoko in her battle against the Syndicate and the search to uncover the truth about her origins.

The Family Fun Pack, which has low system requirements of a 266 MHz G3, will run on both OS 9 and OS X natively, and will be available for $39.99 USD. The Big Metal Box combo, only available for European and Australian gamers, will require a 400 MHz G3 or higher with a 16 MB graphics card. The action package will retail for around 50 euros, with final pricing to be determined closer to the release date.

Make sure to check out Feral's website for more information and to order these packages!
