Ben Hines notes that Loki Software, who is best known in gaming circles for porting many popular games to the Linux platform, is considering expanding its Linux port of Tribes 2 to include a Mac OS X port. "We certainly understand the value of opening this potential market, and are considering adding support for this operating system," said Loki's Kayt Sorhaindo. "Should this occur, we will issue announcements on our website and to the press." Dynamix Software's Tribes 2 is a first-person shooter that features squad-based combat, vehicles and a seamless transition between indoor environments and wide-open, outdoor terrain. Garagegames.com, which was founded by former members of Dynamix Software, is licensing the Tribes 2 engine to developers for a small fee and has also expressed interest in porting the game to the Mac.
