We recently announced that we were the company behind the Mac version of Unreal Engine 3, which Epic brought to the game development world last month. “Every UDK [Unreal Development Kit] game’s potential user base has increased dramatically yet again,” the publisher said on its site at the time.
We’re thrilled that we could be part of such a major event in Mac gaming history, one that will drive development forward as publishers add the option to publish their UE3-powered games on Mac OS X. We’re happy to offer our services as the developer of such titles, so if you happen to work for a publisher interested in bringing a UE3 game to the Mac, let me know and I will forward your message to our CEO.
Even if we’re not involved in those releases, we’ll be thrilled to see them, since they’ll take Mac gaming to greater heights and help all of us in the industry. As Apple continues to sell more Macs than it ever has, the platform slowly but surely becomes less of an after-thought for gamers. Sure, we still have a long way to go, but as Cult of Mac noted when it reported the UE3 news: “Be sure to look out for the next-generation of Mac OS games built using the Unreal Engine 3, which are sure to be as staggering as those released on iOS, and those console titles that use the UDK such as Unreal Tournament 3 and the magnificent Gears of War series.”
