Tuebingen, Germany-based Mac game developer and publisher e.p.i.c. interactive today announced that it will bring the “business simulation” game Software Tycoon to the Mac. It’s a satirical simulation of what it’s like to work in the software business.
Software Tycoon puts you in the role of an enterprising game software developer in the early 1980s. Starting out with a small amount of capital, it’s your goal to conquer the burgeoning computer games market. You’ll develop your own game consoles, create a team and go head-to-head against rivals as you seek to compete in the cutthroat business of computer and video game development.
Software Tycoon features real-time game play, multiple missions and tutorial scenarios to help you get started.
e.p.i.c interactive expects to ship Software Tycoon for the Mac in June, 2002. The game will require a G3/233 or faster, 64MB RAM, and Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X.
e.p.i.c.’s previous releases for the Mac include Simon the Sorcerer II, Earth 2140, The Feeble Files, Knights and Merchants, Birdie Shoot and Gorky 17. The company is also working on Mac conversions of Earth 2150 and Simon the Sorcerer 3D.
