Elite: The New Kind - Mac OS X



Elite TNK Mac OS X Screenshots - Click to see image larger

In the early 1980s Ian Bell & David Braben produced the most expansive 3D game ever made, Elite. The game became an instant cult classic. In the game you can choose any role you choose, you can be a trader, a pirate, a miner, a bounty hunter, whatever you please. The game was reverse engineered and ported to Windows Direct X by C.J. Pinder.

Now, for the first time you can play this classic native on Mac OS X.

All versions of Elite TNK have been pulled at the request of Frontier Developments and David Braben. If you don't think this port of a 20 year old game appearing on Mac OS X is a threat to Frontier Developments, instead would only help to keep this game in the public eye, make your feelings felt to dbraben@frontier.co.uk.

Although there's a game for Mac OS X called Oolite which you should try at www.aegidian.org. Although not based on the Elite source, it's very much inspired by it.
