    NWN2 for mac exists and the renderer is openGL. It does not use the Cider engine and is fully native.

    Sacred tanked on Windows, who would want this on Linux since we have The Witcher and the rest running fine with WINE?

    too bad that the good intentions of linuxgamepublishing meet these bad game choices

    and another thing "plans to ship the title in August of this year" lulz... the X3 port should have been out in Aug 2007, now it's just at Closed Beta 9...wtf?!!?!

    I hadn't released that they wanted to make a X-Box version of NWN2 but it does go some way to explain why the linux version was cancelled.

    thats an awesome idea - I would definitely consider picking up a copy if the port was done
