Freeverse Software on Monday took the wraps off
MacFun.com, the first casual game site specifically dedicated to Macintosh users.
As the casual games market has grown and diversified, numerous Web sites have popped up that enable you to play games online, download them, and buy them if you wish. Some of them even offer Mac-compatible products, but none before MacFun.com have focused specifically on the Macintosh user. That’s what makes MacFun.com different, according to editor-in-chief Amy Torres.
“Most other sites treat Mac users as an afterthought, if they consider them at all. But finally there is a place where they can trust that every game works on the Mac, where Safari is the browser of choice, and where the support staff—editor, webmaster, and everyone else—are all Mac users themselves,” said Torres in a statement.
MacFun.com features games by category — arcade, puzzle, word games, cards and strategy. And while Freeverse publishes its own popular games, MacFun.com features offerings from a number of different Mac game developers.
Accordingly, MacFun.com also provides development services for third-party and original casual games. They’ve developed their own Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology for license, and offer distribution partnerships for independent developers.
