Napoleon: Total War - Gold Edition, coming to Mac

More great news for Mac gamers who like top-notch strategy, but prefer to stick with Mac-native titles. Feral announce:

Seriously looking forward to this as much as I did to both Rome & Empire!

We are looking for beta testers for Rome and Empire updates and the best ones might just get early access to Napoleon if anyone is interested...

Not interested in this, but when you're looking for Xcom beta testers...I'm so there.

By the by, do you guys at Feral have plans for a DVD version option of "Napoleon: Total War", as with Empire, or is it destined to be available only as a download from the App Store? Thanks in advance for any reply!

This was the first thing that popped into my mind.

All our games ship on DVD and all the popular Mac digital download stores like MacGamesStore and AppStore. We don't however support Steam at this time.

The DVD usually ships a few weeks after the download due to manufacturing and shipping overhead compared to download.

I'm sure this has been answered previously, but why do you not support Steam?

I really hope you guys will work out some arrangement with Steam in the future, the sooner the better. I really like Steam more than any other place to get my games.

The problem I have with that answer is seeing Aspyr do it and then wondering how it is if they could work something out that Feral can't, or is it won't?

Sometimes when things are left to the imagination, people tend to think up worse scenarios than whatever the real truth of the situation is, you know?

Anyway, I do hope you manage to work out something. I think you are probably missing out on a lot of sales by not being there.

I should add, the one time Aspyr went and skipped out on Steamplay with Black OPS and far worse, isolated the Mac multiplayer from the large PC multiplayer community, my response was to ignore the game. I'm sure I was not alone in that choice.
