Freeverse Software has announced that it's shipping its newest game, Solace. The strategy game is described as having been inspired by classic board games like risk and Axis & Allies.

Featuring solo play and network play, as well as Play By E-Mail (PBEM), Solace supports from one to six players. You engage in a struggle of nations as you seek to win territory from rival empires. You command frigates, catapults, archers and cavalry to emerge the champion.

Solace utilizes OpenGL graphics and includes a tutorial to teach you how to play. What's more, it's fully cross-platform, so Mac and Windows users can play each other. Online game matching is handled through Freeverse's own GameSmith service, as well as through direct TCP/IP connections.

Solace requires Mac OS X or Mac OS 9, 64MB RAM (128MB for OS X); G3/333MHz or faster; 80MB free hard disk space; and a 16MB OpenGL-compatible video system.

More details and a downloadable demo are available from the Solace Web site. Solace is available from Apple retail stores and other Mac retailers, and costs US$19.95.
