Freeverse Software on Thursday announced that it’s shipping Virtual Programming Ltd.’s
Project Nomads. It’s a third-person cross-genre game that mixes 3D action, real time strategy and role playing in which you assume the role of one of three Nomad characters — a flying “Wizard Engineer” who manipulates magic and arcane technology. The flying islands where the Nomads reside aren’t just their bases of operations: They also act like battleships to explore unknown realms.
While UK-based Virtual Programming publishes the game, Freeverse, an independent game developer and publisher, is distributing the title to retail outlets throughout North America and is also selling it from their own Web site. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.6 or later, G3/450MHz or faster, 32MB VRAM. A G4/700MHz or faster is recommended, with a 64MB video card.
