Beta-Testers Sought for Façade for Macintosh

by Andrew Stern · , 10:05 pm

Mac users that have been patiently waiting for Façade need only wait a few more days — Ryan C. Gordon, our gracious volunteer Mac porting expert (he does this for a living), that we met at IGC05, has just completed a beta build! It took a while, since he only had time to work on it in his spare time, but we hope you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait.

Or, wait even less if you’re willing to beta-test! If you have OS X 10.4.7 or higher, and can download and give prompt feedback on this beta-test version of Façade, please send email to info at interactivestory dot net by end of day Monday, August 7.

Sadly I don’t own a Mac (though I got to know OS X well when I worked at Zoesis in 2004). But I did play with the build on my friend Corwin’s laptop, and it looks and plays exactly like the original Windows version, thanks to the original choice to render in OpenGL, and Ryan’s porting skills.
