SimCity On Mac Is Looking Like Another EA Launch Disaster

When SimCity launched for the PC earlier this year, it was a total debacle. Huge swathes of players could not actually play the game they’d purchased at launch, because SimCity perversely required a persistent Internet connection to play. The result was that players experienced long loading times, constant disconnections, crashing and the loss of saved game data. It was such a bad launch that Amazon actually stopped selling SimCity temporarily in response to the criticisms.

Yesterday, SimCity for the Mac launched. And surprise, surprise! The Mac launch is turning out to be just as much of a disaster as the PC one!

Originally released in 1997 by Electronic Arts (EA), Dungeon Keeper was a PC strategy game made by Bullfrog Productions under Peter Molyneux (Fable, Curiosity, Godus).

Dungeon Keeper tasks players with building and defending their own evil lair while protecting it from “heroes” who seem bent on stealing treasure and killing all the nice monsters. It’s a nice flip to the traditional theme of defending against monsters, and it has a huge following.

Kotaku today reports that the game is returning, but not to the PC. Instead, Dungeon Keeper is headed back tot he digital realm on mobile devices, on iOS and Android.
