Icarus game developer launches Mac compatible MMO platform


Game developer, Icarus Studios, has announced the beta release of its Mac-compatible platform and the Fallen Earth MMO. The software, compatible with Intel Macs, will allow players to connect to the same live server as PC users with game features optimized for their resident operating system.

Fallen Earth, co-developed by Icarus Studios and Fallen Earth, is Icarus's first title to support the Mac. With plans to keep the post-apocalyptic momentum going, Icarus Studios is utilizing the open source software Wine (http://www.winehq.com) to launch the Mac-compatible version of the game.

“The Mac OS X compatibility project is something we’ve been excited to see implemented for quite a while,” says Brad Lineberger, chief technical officer of Icarus Studios. “Our goal for the project is to allow Mac users to run all of our existing and future games in their native OS.”

For optimal play, Mac users will need to run OS X 10.5 Leopard or later, using an Intel-based system with dedicated graphics hardware. The beta version of the client is available now and interested participants can visit http://www.fallenearth.com to download it.
