Just curious as to why you chose to go after the Mac market instead of the much larger PC market.

Well, I've been busy working on the PC version. I've always used and loved Macs, and it was always my intention to produce on Mac then port to PC.

So build on a MAC, play on a PC.

I miss my MAC's frown

All PC's now - So I am have been waiting for Alida to come out for PC for some time.
bravo

Is it difficult to port from one system to another?

No. The scripting environment is basically the same.

If it ISN'T difficult to port from one system to another, then why don't we see more games ported from the PC to the Mac?
