Popular Mac game publisher
has been fairly quiet recently, but the company just updated its Web site with news about the status of several Mac game conversion projects that are underway or near to completion. The company also provided a tantalizing glimpse into the future.
May looks like it’ll be a big month for MacSoft. The company plans to ship its Macintosh conversions of Hasbro hits Pong and Centipede by mid to late May. The new versions are updated variations on the classic arcade games which have already been released for PC and game consoles.
Also coming in May is MacSoft’s long-awaited conversion of Vampire: The Masquerade — Redemption. Originally released for the PC by Activision, this role-playing game is based on a popular tabletop RPG. This game puts you in the role of Christof, a vampire hunter turned vampire himself. You’ll hunt the dread Vukodlak, a powerful vampire lord, across time and place, from medieval Europe to today. It sports 3D graphics and multiplayer support as well.
MacSoft has more in the works for folks looking for some old-school arcade style entertainment. The company plans to follow up these releases with some more revamped classic arcade games. Updated versions of the classic games Q*Bert and Breakout are also on the way.
That’s not all, either. MacSoft said that they’re working on other new titles that are yet to be announced. “You’ll find more arcade and family games on our list, but we also have some ultra-cool hardcore games for the enthusiast in you,” said MacSoft.
Needless to say, we’ll endeavor to bring you more details as they become available.
