Today at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference leading publisher Electronic Arts and renowned developer id Software announced improved support for the Mac platform. Much to the dismay of Mac fans, the platform has always taken a backseat to the traditional PC when it comes to gaming. Today, however, the Mac got a nice boost from coding genius and id co-founder John Carmack.
Carmack unveiled the developer's brand new game engine technology for Mac called Tech 5. "Since many developers at id have made the switch to the Mac for their personal use, we decided it was now time to bring our core game technology to OS X. After a rapid bring up of the codebase, we were delighted to find that the latest Macs are the fastest systems in our offices for some of the time consuming processing jobs and will be contributing to our development process in many useful ways," Carmack said.
