Default NWN2 - Mac Version Coming

August 22nd, 2007, 16:38
Online retailers have apparently let slip that Aspyr is working on a Mac version of NWN2. According to MacWorld, the toolset won't be included but it will still be possible to play user modules from the PC community. No release date has been revealed.
More information.

This surprised the heck out of me when I saw it the other day. I have loads of questions now that I've been doing so much more Mac gaming. I may have to contact my Aspyr friends …

And I thought the drop of support for Mac's through Gamespy was the end of NWN2 on it.

Is a Linux version now possible?

I don't know - Aspyr does Mac & PC stuff, not Linux.

I realize that it's just that I was thinking with the Mac's newish OS being Unix based would the code just as easily lend itself to the Linux flavours. Was the code written in a WORM language? And of course, is it marketable?

Certainly the standalone server is hotly desired for Linux.

Well, they do have ~18% of the world laptop market and almost 6% of the total computer market … not bad for a non-Windoze machine

Actually, that's US only and the retail market only.

OK, to actually talk about the game, I wonder if this is using the 'Cider' API system that allows other things like GameTap to be rapidly ported? If so I wonder about the performance … NWN2 was already a little piggie on the PC.
