Feral Interactive has confirmed it plans to publish Lionhead Studios game 'The Movies' for the Mac.

This is a sim/strategy game in which players cast themselves in the role of a Hollywood mogul, building their own studio. Gameplay extends from the dawn of silent movies to the modern flimic age.

"A unique mix of strategy and artistry, The Movies demands that
you do it all, from developing a slate of films to formulating a release strategy, you must manage the the introduction of new technology, turn talent spotter and make unknowns into stars and then manage their ballooning egos," the company explains.

It also lets players create their own in-game movies.

'The Movies' should ship by summer and will be available as a Universal binary to run natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs, the company said.
