[7:30 AM] New Title From Stephen King Coming To The Mac

Blue Byte Software has announced horror author Steven King's first endeavor in the computer entertainment world, F13. F13 is an "Interactive Timekiller", a unique piece of software emerging the user into Steven King's fascinating world. According to Blue Byte Software:

At the very top of your seemingly benign keyboard is a row of function keys. On a standard PC, they number F1 to F12. Key F13 doesn't exist. Even on a MAC, the F13 is an unassuming little key that simply captures a displayed screen. What if an F13 with some real potency appeared? Something menacing, a merger of technology and terror brought straight to your desktop. Would you dare strike such a key? A provocative yet unanswered question for horror fans and computer users. Unanswered until now...

Stephen King's F13 is an "Interactive Timekiller'" with a difference and spine-chilling realism will play a large part in the graphics without containing gore. (A prerequisite for all Blue Byte titles). They will visually enhance the desktop environment in a very 'Stephen King' like way.

F13 is expected to be released sometime in December and will be released as a Mac/PC Hybrid. Pricing was not made available to The Mac Observer. You can find more information at a special web site set up for the game.
