MacPlay (1990)

Type :  

  Summary  

MacPlay was the name used by a series of two American publishers of Macintosh computer games. No game has been published under the MacPlay brand name since 2004.

  Biography  

  1990 - 1997 Period
MacPlay was founded in the early 1990s as a division of Interplay Entertainment. It was led by producer Bill Dugan. During this period, MacPlay published notable games including Wolfenstein 3D, Out of this World, the Alone in the Dark series, and the Descent series.

Due to the 1990s decline in the Mac market, Interplay exited the Macintosh games market and abandoned the MacPlay division in 1997.

  2000 - 2004 Period
In 2000, United Developers LLC licensed the MacPlay brand name from Interplay for use as the name of a wholly owned subsidiary corporation. Ron Dimant became CEO of this new incarnation of MacPlay, which was headquartered in Dallas, TX. In the early 2000s, MacPlay published two lines of games- regular games and "value" games. Notable games published during this period included Baldur's Gate II, Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, and the first two games in the Fallout series. The last game published by MacPlay was Tron 2.0 in May 2004.

  Post-2004
United Developers continues to hold the rights to the MacPlay name. From November 2004 - 2008, the MacPlay.com domain was used as a software retail outlet.

In 2008, the MacPlay.com domain was changed to redirect to MumboJumbo, itself a subsidiary of United Developers founded by MacPlay CEO Ron Dimant and located in Dallas, TX.
