Apple Previews Undying
9:51 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Apple has once again updated their Games page with a preview, this time getting the drop on all the Mac game sites by previewing Clive Barker's Undying, a chilling horror title inspired by an author considered a master of the genre. This first-person action/adventure won much praise on the PC side for its atmosphere and originality; based on the Unreal Tourney engine, it has also been praised for its visuals.
Among the many interesting facts about the game presented here is the news that the game will be Carbonized for OS X when it ships -- a very important detail that perhaps bodes well for Carbon versions of Unreal Tournament and other games based on the engine in the future.
The preview outlines the plot of the game and includes quotes from Mike Rogers from publisher Aspyr Media, a roster of game characters and a few screen shots. More importantly, the preview lists the minimum requirements for the game, which includes a 400 MHz G3 processor, 96 MB of RAM and a Rage 128 or better -- similar requirements to Unreal Tournament, as expected.
Here's a sample from the preview:
Undying, a 3D first-person shooter based on the Unreal Tournament gameplay engine, is set in Ireland during the 1920s (the perfect setting for Gothic horror). You play the role of Patrick Galloway, a master of the occult who has been summoned to the ancestral estate of the Covenant family by Jeremiah, the last living member of the clan. Unfortunately, Jeremiah is still dealing with some family squabbles. Clive Barker and walking corpses -- the two just go together, don't you agree? Be sure to check out the rest of the preview for more.

You see, his four siblings are dead, but they’ve become reanimated as a bunch of creepy crawly walking corpses with just one goal in mind: kill Jeremiah and free the Curse of the Undying King.
