Destineer’s Macintosh game conversion label, Bold, will be supporting Mac OS X with its conversions of Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings and Links 2002. Destineer said that both games will be Carbonized to run both on Mac OS X and older versions of Mac OS equipped with Apple’s CarbonLib system library.
Destineer was founded by MacSoft founder and former Apple and Bungie executive Peter Tamte. The company is doing both original game development and Mac game conversions. The original development, for PCs, Macs and video game consoles, will be produced under the Destineer Studios label, while Macintosh game conversions will happen under the Bold brand.
“Mac OSX is getting cooler every month,” said Tamte. “Lots of Mac users are now running Mac OS X exclusively. All of our games will support Mac OS X.”
Both games are expected to be released this October. Age of Empires 2 is expected to be released early in October, with Links 2002 coming later in October.
