Transgaming unveils Mac game portal

Transgaming game portal

TransGaming has announced the launch of an online download portal for Mac games, bringing the same kind of service PC and console owners have known for years. Game Tree Online will complement the firm's Cider Portability Engine, which has allowed publishers to port a number of successful games to the Mac Platform since its introduction in 2006. In addition to providing online purchase, Game Tree Online will provide news and game promotions, and will allow users to post reviews.

Developers will be allowed to sell their games, using a revenue model much like iTunes. TransGaming says the move is the next "logical step in the evolution" of the growing Mac Gaming Community, making titles more accessible.

"Cider has quickly become the industry standard for Mac gaming and with Game Tree Online we plan to release new titles regularly and establish our position as the leaders in Mac games digital distribution," said CEO Vikas Gupta.
