Posted by Data in Cortex Command - May 28th, 2008

Here’s another interview of me by the indie scene scoopmaker Tim W. at This one is more about the development than the game itself, which complements the previous interview well.

The big news Tim breaks is that we now have a very experienced guy actually working on the Mac OSX port of Cortex Command! After many years in the ‘big’ games industry, Chris Kruger recently left his position at Rockstar Games to pursue freelance programming on his own. We are very fortunate to have him working with us on our project, and all you Mac users out there will soon be battling it out on your native platform!

Chris is one of those guys who actually enjoy porting games, so there’s a good chance other target platforms will be within our reach as well. Stay tuned…

    If you ported to Linux I’m pretty sure you’d get a lot of very positive attention.

    Also; I’d like to play this on Linux 😉

    […] Chris is doing a great job with the porting, and has made lots of progress. The code now builds and runs on Mac OSX, but there’s still some issues to iron out. […]

    I’ve very excited to hear you are doing a Mac port! Is there is a list I can get to find out when it is ready? I just stumbled across your website from a cool looking banner ad.
