Robosoft today announced the release of its latest work in porting: the “Battlestations Midway” game for the Macintosh platform. The title reinforces Robosoft’s commitment to being a market leader in porting the best-selling AAA titles from PC/ Consoles to the Mac platform. Using a combination of OpenGL and great developer tools from Apple, the Robosoft engineering team has brought yet another popular game title to the Mac.
“Battlestations Midway” follows the story of naval recruit, Henry Walker, whose first assignment as a gunner at Pearl Harbor is the starting point of an incredible career at the heart of the US Pacific Fleet in 1942, in what was to become one of the most inspirational military campaigns in history.
“Our collaboration with Feral Interactive has been an extraordinary experience.” said Rohith Bhat, MD and CEO, Robosoft Technologies, in the press release. “‘Battlestations’ was one of the graphics intensive AAA titles handled by us with extensive use of vertex and fragment programs. Our experience with XCode, in-depth knowledge on both Windows and Mac technologies has enabled us to successfully map the advanced game features from Windows and optimize performance for the Mac”.
David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive said, “Working with Robosoft has been a pleasure and hugely beneficial for us. Their professionalism and flexibility has allowed us to work together successfully on complex projects even though we are separated by thousands of miles. ‘Battlestations Midway’ is the latest fruit of that collaboration and we look forward to working further with them to bring many more great titles to the Mac.”
Robosoft works with leading Macintosh game publishers to bring hit titles to the Mac. Robosoft has already ported critically acclaimed titles such as “The Movies” (winner of a prestigious BAFTA award), “Tomb Raider Anniversary,” “Fable: The Lost Chapters” and “LEGO Star Wars II” to the Mac. Robosoft is now looking at developing innovative casual games for the iPhone and Mac.
