I’m pleased to announce that my updated MacOS Netrek client, using SwiftUI for graphics (as opposed to SpriteKit), is now in beta.

Get it here: <>

Binary is notarized by Apple.  This requires MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) to run.

I’d appreciate Mac users giving it a whirl during Thursday’s 6PM Pacific game.

Key question: is it good enough to replace the SpriteKit-based Netrek client that is currently in the MacOS App Store?  If you try it out please pop me an email and let me know your opinion.

I’m also curious how many of you have iPads with 3-button mice.  I suspect a native iPadOS port is possible and am curious regarding the interest level.  But I think the game is too complex for an iPhone version.
