Only one week after the PC version shipped, the Mac version of Survivor: The Interactive Game for the Mac has gone "gold." In other words, it's finished and will ship to retailers next month.

The first release in the Survivor series of interactive games announced by MacSoft, an Infogrames label, was developed for the Mac by alt.software. Infogrames is a publisher and distributor of video and computer games for various consoles and platforms.

The inaugural edition of Survivor features the real-life casts from the first two Survivor television series and incorporates many of the elements from the show, including the Immunity Challenges and Tribal Council.

Players may choose cast members from the first or second season or create their own character. When creating a character, players must allocate points across 10 different skill categories. The strategies deployed must compliment the skill sets of a player, as they will greatly impact the player's ability to survive the Tribal Council and nature's elements, according to Infogrames spokesperson Judy Corey.

Once the game begins, each player chooses a role or task to complete, such as cooking, hunting, fishing or fire tender. The decisions made will affect the players standing within the group and can either hurt or help when Tribal Council arrives. At Tribal Council, players will get the opportunity to vote off other remaining survivors and experience all of the rituals featured in the television.
