I couldn't see this posted anywhere on the forums, so thought I would mention it because it's awesome.

Bugdom is a game many are familiar with, as it came with Mac OS 9 back in 2000. Interestingly, in 2020 someone made a triple-architecture port of Bugdom – PowerPC 10.4, Intel and Apple Silicon (MacOS 11+)! The original developer, Pangea Software, even supported the fan port, and shared the port on the official website.

This is yet another proof that triple universal binaries are possible.

From what I remember, Bugdom also came bundled with the original iBook which shipped with Mac OS 8.6.

A very cool tidbit from the original developer is their programming book

Pangea Software's Ultimate Game Programming Guide for Mac OS X

available to download for free here;

I’ve had a little browse through and it is quite comprehensive for building a Mac OpenGL game from the ground up...
