Following a story posted earlier today on a petition that calls for a Macintosh version of Roger Wilco, former Roger Wilco programmer Wade Williams indicates that a near-completed version of the application was scrapped following a series of acquisitions. Shortly after an acquisition by HearMe, Roger Wilco for the Macintosh was cancelled -- just prior to the vital debugging stage. A later acquisition by GameSpy -- a Windows-oriented gaming network -- meant development had virtually no probability of resumption. Mr. Williams, however, has started the design phase of a new audio communication tool that will offer both Mac OS X and Windows support. No release date has been determined.
