The Kiwi's Tale - Now for Intel Mac (Plus other updates)

In a historic first for this site, The Kiwi's Tale download now includes an executable for Intel Macs. It isn't nicely "bundled" like a proper Mac application should be, but works fine none the less (I think it works better then the Windows version actually!)

I had originally considered doing a PPC Mac build but decided not to after finding out about the little/big endian problem. Linux support will probably come at a later date.

The new download can be found on the game page or here.

There are no other changes, except that the Retro Remakes splash screen has been removed, and it comes with a permissive licence to explicitly allow redistribution and modding etc.

Also, Blow Stuff Up and Heart of Ice have been re-uploaded with a similar licence, and Blow Stuff Up now includes a bug fix which should stop it from crashing on some computers, and better instructions in the config file on how to customise the game (Change the number of buildings, fighters, tanks etc).

One cool thing about this release is that it came up exactly one year after the first complete release of the game. =)

Incredible, you're right! I didn't realise because I thought the original release was on December 1st, but since they put the end of the Retro Remakes 2008 competition back a couple of weeks, it meant that the Mac version of the Kiwi's Tale was released one year to the day after the Windows version :)
