Duane Johnson, best known for his (current) programming work on the 3dfx versions of Descent I and Descent II, has officially taken over development of Descent III for the Mac. Under the terms of an agreement with Outrage Entertainment, Johnson will be responsible for a major portion of the port to the Mac operating system.

Said Johnson on the current status of Descent III for the Mac: "The current status of the port is not very far along, but I have jumped into the project with both feet & am going to work my tail off. One change over the previous press release is that I am definitely going to do a 3Dfx/Glide version."

Johnson also noted that he will also be bringing a Descent III level editor to the Mac later this year.
