Somehow the Mac went from gaming afterthought to everyone's favorite platform in the span of a week. Now the MMO Fallen Earth is Mac compatible, beginning with today's Beta release of the game.

Icarus Studios, the co-developers of Fallen Earth, have put together a Mac-compatible xScape platform, buit on the open source software Wine. A statement from Icarus said the new platform allows "players to connect to the same live server as PC users with game features optimized for their resident operating system."


For optimal play, Mac users will need an Intel-based Mac, running Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) or later, with at least 2 gigs of RAM and a video card with 256 MB of RAM. There's more info inside this FAQ.
