UK-based Mac game developer
Virtual Programming Ltd. has unveiled a new Web site and offers up new details on the games it currently has in development.
The company has put the finishing touches of Virtual Grand Prix 2, an open-wheel racing game that will ship in April. The game recently reached gold master status and is now moving into production.
Also coming soon is Victoria, developed by Paradox Entertainment — the makers of Europa Universalis II and other strategy-based titles. Victoria allows players to guide nations through the industrial age, from the early 19th century to the 20th. Virtual Programming also expects this game to hit stores in April.
Massive Assault is a new real-time strategy game that’s in final testing. It uses a 3D engine and supports PC to Mac multiplayer gaming as well. In Massive Assault, you take command of the Free Nations Union to defeat the Phantom League on a series of different planets in assaults that cover the land, sea and air. Virtual Programming plans to get this game on store shelves in May.
Also on the drawing board are a few other games, including Slitherine’s Spartan, which brings you back in time 2000 years to control ancient empires like Rome and Persia. Gangland is an arcade-style action game that lets players become mobster bosses in an environment that’s part real time tactical game, part role playing game and part sim.
Four other projects are currently in development as well — Knightshift, a role-playing game with real time strategy elements; Celtic Kings, a real-time strategy game that pits ancient Romans against Celtic warriors; Project Nomads and Horse Racing Manager.
