Fate launched for Mac

Macgamestore and WildTangent have released Fate for the Mac. The new game is a 3D fantasy role-playing game, taking the player through multiple settings as they increase their attributes over time. Gamers play as a boy or girl, accompanied by a dog or cat, and journey through caverns, tunnels, mines and dungeons seeking adventure. The game features over 100 monsters, 400 items to discover and randomly-generated levels.

Fate requires a PowerPC G4 or better and Mac OS X 10.3.9. It is selling as a digital download for $20.

    Potential problems

    The game is nice, for a dungeon crawl. The problem though on my machine at least is that it crashes. i could live with that but when it crashes the one and only save game often gets corrupted which means unless you've manually backed up the save game file in the finder you lose all the playing you've done.

    i emailed them and they said that the default video settings were too tough and i should switch to a less stressing set. That did work but the game still crashes, not too often to play though. But sometimes when it crashes you lose the saved game and have to start over from scratch.

    If they would allow more than 1 saved game it would probably be fine. Or make it so that the saved game file doesn't occasionally get trashed.

    Now this may just be on my machine but i didn't get any work arounds from the company other than changing the video settings.

    Otherwise it's a nice dungeon crawl well worth the price based on what i've seen so far.

    I must be lucky...

    Knock on glass and aluminum - I must be lucky so far. I've played for about 12 hours and no crashes yet. Running on an iMac 2.4 GHz Aluminum.
