on Friday announced that its Macintosh conversion of the historical strategy game Imperial Glory has reached its beta development milestone this week. Feral hasn’t announced a release date, but noted that the game will ship as a Universal Binary native for both Intel and PowerPC-based Macs.
Developed for the PC by Pyro Studios, makers of the Commandos series, Imperial Glory is set in the early 19th century. You lead one of the great empires of the age through conflicts, or guide them to economic dominance using diplomatic skills backed by military force.
Imperial Glory is a turn-based 3D strategy game that features real time battles both on land and at sea; it features fully interactive battle maps that allow you to occupy buildings, forests, boulder fields and more, with varying climates and terrains spread across more than 50 maps. You can play as Great Britain, France, Russia, Prussia or Austro-Hungary. Each empire features its own unique units, with individual strengths and weaknesses.
Feral has posted a QuickTime movie trailer of the game in action, which is available for download through links on their Web site. They’ve also created a special version for video iPod users.
