Quazal Debuts Online Tech for MacOS X

Net-Z, Rendez-Vous and Spark! now available for the Tiger and Leopard platforms

Montreal, Canada (February 18th, 2008) - Quazal, makers of the award-winning Net-Z, Rendez-Vous and Spark! online multiplayer middleware today announced that they have added MacOS X to their list of supported platforms.

With the release of the Mac version of Net-Z, Rendez-Vous and Spark!, Quazal makes available all of the features and flexibility that they've become known for on PC and consoles. Developers can even allow for PC/Mac cross-platform play, with very little added effort.

"With the growth of the Mac audience, the quality of the OS X platform, and the increasing interest of game publishers catering to that audience, Quazal has seen the need for a version of their technologies and services on Mac," says Sylvain Beaudry, president at Quazal.

"It's often a challenge to find proven game development technologies on the Mac, and this will definitely help to bring more games with rich online experiences to the platform", says Justin D'Onofrio, Producer at game developer Freeverse. "We are really happy to be early adopters and help Quazal provide their product to the Mac development community."

Interested parties can contact Quazal for more information at, or can visit us at the San Francisco Game Developers' Conference in West Hall, booth ES668 from Wednesday, February 20th to Friday, February 22nd.
