@mantralord It’s definitely an annoying dilemma for developers, I certainly see that. I just think this is a bit of an isolated case. The game was promised for a platform in Kickstarter and seems to be pretty far along. I don’t agree that the current systems are going to fade away quite as quickly as you suggest. I know a lot of Mac users on forums, etc are excited about jumping on the latest tech, but for every one of those types, I think there are likely 5-10 “quiet” Mac users that are happy with what they have and don’t think about updating or purchasing a new computer until they absolutely have to. I’m thinking about every one of my Mac user friends/family, and not a single one of them is the type to jump on a new tech wave; they are pretty much all 5-10+ years type of users. And don’t forget Apple has announced they still have additional new Intel based Macs coming out in the future. My guess is the user base will stay strong for at least the next 5+ years, which would seem good enough to warrant supporting.
Perhaps ultimately the existing number of total Mac downloads/buyers of LE has showed there isn’t enough interest to warrant continuing, I don’t know. But honestly I think that would also be a premature assumption as I believe a lot of gamers are waiting to see how multiplayer turns out before even trying the game.
