Oni Released for OS X
9:46 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The Omni Group has sent word of the official release of Oni, the full-contact action game, for Mac OS X. While there was a "sneaky" version leaked a few weeks ago, this looks to be their first full OS X port. The game needs only Mac OS X 10.1 and a full copy of Oni for Mac OS 9 in order to run.

There is one known issue where some of the Bink movies may have problems playing on certain machines. The Omni Group was apparently unable to resolve this issue with RAD Game Tools, the makers of Bink. Here's what Omni has to say about it:

Sound skips in the intro and final movies on faster machines and dual-processor machines. This appears to be a problem with all BINK movies on Mac OS X. (We've notified RAD of the problem, but they believe it's due to our use of native Mach-O binaries which they don't support.)
Otherwise, there should be nothing stopping Mac OS X gamers now from enjoying Oni in full Cocoa goodness. Head over to The Omni Group now for the 2.2 MB download if you're interested.
