U.K.-based game publisher
hinted prior to last month’s Apple Expo in Paris, France that they’d have some announcements. Finally, the company has revealed one of its new conversion plans: Feral is bringing Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc to the Macintosh.
Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is a Mac conversion of the 3D platformer published for Windows earlier this year by Ubi Soft Entertainment. Rayman is a hugely popular character whose games have been made available for all major game consoles over the years, with total sales of over 11 million copies.
Rayman 3 follows the adventures of the hero whose feet and hands don’t quite connect to his body. In this installment, Rayman must travel the world to do battle with Hoodlum soldiers, contraptions and bosses as he seeks to purge the Lord of the Dark Lums from Globox (voiced by actor John Leguizamo).
Feral and Zonic recently completed work on Ghost Master, a 3D real time strategy game that puts you in the role of an afterworld spook charged with scaring the living daylights out of the corporeal residents of a haunted town. The company promised to get that game into the hands of Mac players in time for Halloween; the game recently went Gold Master and is now in manufacturing.
Feral Interactive’s usual partner-in-crime, Mac game conversion developer Zonic, is handling the Mac port of Rayman 3. The publisher plans to have Rayman 3 on Mac store shelves in time for Christmas. Look for more details soon from Feral’s Web site.
