It looks like development on OSX costs more than on Linux. Furthermore, most players of the similar games: Tremulous and Unvanquished are on Linux, they might be thinking of converting them to NS2.

Not sure about costs, but according to a game developer with whom I have spoken, developing for Linux is actually easier than developing for Mac OS.

Because macs suck?
And btw, it should be Linux and OS X.

Not trying to pull a Garry Newman here (starting ♥♥♥♥ with people for their OS of choice), but I'm not sure what self-respecting gamer would ever want to use OSX as their gaming OS of choice. Well, unless if it's something badass like a hackintosh.

Because a Mac version is planned but linux was released first as it is generally regarded as superior.

There *is* a larger market for OS X. However, if anything, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So, Linux was first. It could have also been the: Since we're porting the server to LInux we might as well do the client too while we're at it.

NOTE: I always love how people get to bigoted about OS X. Seriously, look at what hardware the Macs have before spouting.

Two games that are native on OS X that might interest people: Max Payne 3, Bioshock Infinite.

No, it was shown in a report that Steam released a while ago that Linux users spend more money on games than OSX users.

Explain how macs suck, please? Without using the word gaming in every sentence.

Macs "Suck" in their words because they fail to be compatiable with many games (like this one), tend to have flashy, high ram-requirement operating systems that reduce your performance (Although windows has been doing it too lately with vista and windows 8) and they tend to be locked to a factory standard with a few rigid "customization settings". You really don't get the ability to do anything to your mac. The difference in customization between mac and PC is like the difference between PC and linux, if you have ever used linux.

Funny how you say im a butthurt mac user. I love your ignorance. Actually, I own both a high grade PC and a Macbook Pro. Macs are better, in my opinion. I rarely ever use my PC, even when I want to get a PC only game. I just dont like them.

I have both a high grade PC and a Macbook Pro. I prefer macs. Macs can do a ton more, with the only exception being gaming.
