EUGENE, OREGON – October 2, 2008 – InstantAction, the website for gamers that combines the intensity of videogames with the accessibility of the web, announced the introduction of the InstantAction open beta for Mac OS X users. Mac gamers can register and play Rokkitball, Marble Blast Online, Think Tanks and the new FPS, Fallen Empire: Legions at http://www.instantaction.com/mac.
“Mac gamers have always been underserved by the games industry,” said Andy Yang, General Manager of InstantAction.com. “We plan to infuse the large Apple community with console quality games playable at work and at home through their laptops or desktops.”
