Yoot Tower Shipping!
[2: 52 PM] Yoot Tower, the Mac first game from Yoot Saito, is now shipping. Mr. Saito was the developer of SimTower for Maxis games and the developer for the original Yoot Tower for Sega's console line of products. Yoot Tower for the Mac sports and advanced AI that brings a new level of sophistication for sim games.

"A focal point of the game is to keep the people happy. "Yoot Tower" takes this to an all new level with an improved character AI that is so advanced, the people now feel stress, leave hotels with bad service and boycott stores with high prices.

With the most advanced level of options seen in the series, gamers must not only choose the kinds of restaurants, retail stores and movie theaters to include, but also the menus, prices and types of movies shown."

The game is currently available for US$39.95 online and in retail outlets . Buyers purchasing directly from the Yoot Tower web site get a US$10 savings and a free T-shirt.

The Mac Observer Spin: Mr. Yoot is a strong Mac advocate who reportedly agreed to do the port for the Mac and PC only if the Mac version was allowed to ship first. This is a very strong demand that bespeaks well of Mr. Saito that Sega was willing to make that concession. There is little doubt that Apple's improving condition factored into Sega's decision, but it is just incredibly awesome to see a major game released as a Mac first game! Show your support for Yoot Tower by purchasing a copy ASAP. Congratulations to Mr. Saito and to the Mac community!
