Nanosaur II beta for Intel

Pangea Software today released a for upcoming Intel-based Macs. Already available to select developers, Apple will turn to the Intel-architecture in the first half of 2006. The company notes that developers with the latest Dev Kit hardware should be able to run the game almost flawlessly despite a few known issues with the beta OS's video drivers. The "Universal Binary" application, a single download for both PowerPC- and Intel-based platforms, "should also run fine on all PowerPC Macs running MacOS 10.4 or later. The updater itself is a PowerPC application, but it should run correctly under Rosetta on the Intel Macs, according to the developer."

"We want to make sure that we've got something ready to release the day that Apple releases their Intel-based hardware, so to be sure that Nanosaur II is stable we decided to release a public beta to let other developers with Dev Kit hardware to hammer on it for us." says Brian Greenstone, President of Pangea Software.

Greenstone also notes that Pangea Software intends on updating most of their other OS X native games to run on Intel hardware, and that their current game that's in production, Enigmo 2, should also be Intel-ready when it gets released sometime in the not too distant future.
