With a slight redesign to their website, European publisher Virtual Programming has announced they are now shipping three new titles for Mac OS X; Hearts of Iron, Mind Rover, and Player Manager 2003. In addition to these new games, they are also re-releasing some old favorites like Payback, Wipeout 2097, and KickOff 2002 at a new, lower price point.
MacPlay is already set to distribute the new and re-priced titles to North American customers. In case you're unfamiliar with Hearts of Iron, here's a description of the WWII-based strategy game:
Hearts of Iron is the first ever World War II PC game of true Grand Strategic scope. The game map spans the entire world and allows players to take the War to any new front of their choosing. Any nation in the world is playable, but the game focuses on the epic struggle between the great alliances of the new world orders Fascism, Communism and Democracy.Mind Rover is a completely different kind of strategy game, with players creating robots to dual it out using a variety of weaponry:
What's particularly new and unusual is that it's not just a matter of choosing weapons -- the player actually gets to control how the robots react through a visual programming metaphor that we call "wiring." In the construction lab, players choose bodies, drivetrains, sensors, weapons, and manipulators for their robots from a large array of possibilities, then visually wire the sensors to the controls to give each Rover a unique set of behaviors. The Rover is then moved to the competitive arena and set free to take on all comers.Player Manager 2003 is a football (soccer) managing game which lets you take on all the aspects of being a big-league manager. Based on the engine of KickOff 2002, gamers should check out the demo available now for more information.
Stay tuned for much more from IMG about Virtual Programming as other games ship in the future like KnightShift and Crusader Kings.
