Sulak has worked on 29 games, including Halo, The Sims, Rise of Nations, Dungeon Siege, and Total Annihilation.

Cobb has worked as a software developer for his entire professional life, including adapting computers for use by the severely handicapped and many Mac games, including Unreal, Tomb Raider, Halo: Combat Evolved and Rise of Nations.

"I've worked with Peter Tamte and Al Schilling on and off for almost eight years,” said Sulak. “The people at MacSoft care very much about the games they release, and Ken and I are very enthusiastic about the future of Destineer and MacSoft."

Cobb said: "It's great to be working for MacSoft now. They're a good group of people, they have some super projects coming up, and I’m happy to be part of it."

"This puts an exclamation point on our continued dedication to Mac gaming," said MacSoft general manager, Al Schilling.

“Especially during the coming period of technical transition in the Mac platform, having some of the Mac industry's most talented engineers gives us extra ability to make our Mac games great."
