GraphSim Entertainment boss Jeff Morgan recently let MacCentral know about nine new screenshots from the forthcoming role-playing game Summoner. The game will be published for the Mac by GraphSim when it’s released in March.
Summoner has already been released for Sony’s PlayStation 2 game console, but development continues for the Mac and PC by Volition. The company plans to release both versions simultaneously.
Although Summoner is a role playing game, the title uses an advanced 3D graphics engine that displays all the action and activity from a third-person perspective. The game follows the story of Joseph, a young Summoner at odds with the powerful legacy left to him. Players must guide Joseph on his quest to find the ancient rings that will help him control his gift. Players will be able to control up to 4 characters, in addition to the creatures Joseph learns to summon.

GraphSim unveiled plans
to publish Summoner for the Macintosh at last month’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco, Calif. The company also announced plans to publish another Volition game, Red Faction — a first-person shooter that features a deformable terrain generator.
MacCentral will bring you more details on Summoner’s development and release as they become available.
