Mac developer Virtual Programming recently updated the status of their two long-awaited projects, Europa Universalis II and Another War. Both games have reached gold master status and according to the Virtual Programming home page, will be released soon for the Macintosh platform.
Europa Universalis II is a historical empire-management game set in the Modern Ages. Through 300 years of campaign, from the discovery of America to the fall of the Ancien Régime, the player will take control of any of 90 kingdoms, managing every aspect of his rulership from the commissioning of privateers to royal marriages. Here are some of the features included in this complex strategy game:
• 90 different nations potentially player controlled. Powerful AI with human behavior controls non-player nations.Another War takes us to the Nazi-occupied Europe of the Second World War, where we will direct the fate of an adventurer trying to rescue his friend from the Third Reich, from the streets of a small town in France to the besieged city of Leningrad. The game is said to be inspired on the interface of classic RPG games such as Fallout or Baldur's gate, and will sport stunning graphical effects like dynamic lighting, smoke and atmospheric conditions to name a few.
• 800+ named provinces, 550+ named sea zones and 100+ named rivers on a map covering the entire globe!
• Involve yourself in colonization, exploration, trade and infrastructure, war, religion and diplomacy against players and computer alike!
• Up to 8 players in multiplayer games over LAN or the internet!
Virtual Programming is known for having brought Legion and Virtual Grand Prix 2 to the Mac, and are now working on titles such as Hearts of Iron and Celtic Kings.
