LIMBO coming to Mac by end of year
MCE Technologies is now shipping Mac Blu-ray playback software with all of its 12X Blu-ray drives, while Playdead has announced that a Mac port of LIMBO is in the works and should be available by the end of the year
MCE Technologies has announced that all internal and external models of its 12X Blu-ray recordable drives will now include playback software for the Mac. The Mac Blu-ray playback software allows users to play both commercial and non-commercial movies on any Mac running OS X 10.5.2 or later. A one year license that enables full Blu-ray playback capabilities is included with the purchase, while a lifetime license can be purchased at a discounted rate. The software requires an Intel 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo or faster processor, and minimum 4GB of RAM.
Mac versions of LIMBO in the works
LIMBO, a puzzle-platforming adventure game from Playdead, has now sold over one million copies worldwide and is being played by games in 153 countries, in 9 languages and across 3 platforms. In celebration of this success, the developers have announced that a Mac release is in the works and will hopefully be launched by the end of the year. The success has also allowed the developers to fully acquire the company from early investors and begin planning their next title.
