I have always had an inkling that Mac gaming must have influenced gaming in general, if only because of the many user interface innovations the Macintosh pioneered in the marketplace: they are bound to have allowed game designers to innovate in turn, building upon the Mac interface itself. However, I have not come across many mentions of such an influence in practice, in no small part because of the long-standing disparagement and prejudice against Mac gaming in general, which resulted in this not being reported on and studied in the way it should have.
But Richard Moss will be doing just that with his book project, The Secret History of Mac Gaming. And he needs your help making it a reality; granted, it has funded by now, but it is not too late to bring your contribution and make it even better, I just did. Please help show how the Mac did matter in the history of gaming.
