Old issue, but recurring...
Why does not Matrix consistently supports gaming on Mac ?
One can count by the fingers on one hand Matrix games that have a Mac native release: Warhammer 40.000, Order of Battle, Battle of the Bulge, Battle Academy 2....any more ?
For instance, Field of Glory II works perfectly fine with a wine wrapper and has the potential of being a cross platform hit. Mare Nostrum was made with Unity, which is apparently easily portable to OSX.
The usual answer is that there is no market...I think the reasoning is wrong!
I wish to bring to your attention the list of the 10 most sold games on Steam: all have a Mac OSX version. The 10 most popular new games today on Steam ? Also all have a Mac OSX version !
Indie developers of fine strategy games are doing Mac versions, The most glaring example being Ultimate General Civil War. A GREAT game, certainly in my top 5 most played games. Indie developer. Mac version since release.
I will now retreat back to my corner...
In 2016 Apple accounted for only 6.9% of personal computer sales. There is virtually no money to be made when compared to the 'other' computer platform. From 2001 to 2015 Apple was in the top five, at 7.2%, only once. They make a lot of noise about how great they are but the end result speaks volumes.
