Inside Mac Games Turns 10

In ten years, Inside Mac Games has gone from the lowly beginnings of hand-delivered floppy disks to become the undisputed mainline source of Macintosh gaming. A special birthday congratulations to Tuncer Deniz and the staff of IMG.

To celebrate the birthday, IMG has a good interview with Tuncer. He talks about how IMG got started and where it is going. Be sure to check out page two of the interview, where Tuncer talks about leaving IMG and joining Bungie. He gives a little background about his Bungie experiences including some notes about what it was like to develop Myth II: Soulblighter.
