Back in the old days I used to have Pax Imperia on an old Mac. That game was awesome, but I've note been able to find a version of it for windows. Does anyone know if there is a version of it available?

I'm talkin' about the old Pax Imperia, not Pax Imperia 2 or 3 or anything like that.

Pax Imperia was never release for Windows, it was a Macintosh exclusive. Its sequal (Pax Imperia Eminent Domain) was however and is usually considered Abandonware.

As the original game was for Macintosh OS 7, it is unlikely that it was ever ported to another platform. I'm sorry.

While you may not be able to get a copy for Windows, if you still have your Mac copy available, it may run in SheepSaver, the Mac OS 9 emulator. Given the age of the game (and thus, the unlikelihood of requiring advanced graphics support), it should run fairly well on modern PC hardware in emulation.

I've used SheepSaver in the past, on prior PCs, and found it pretty reliable and workable. (Unlike, say, Executor.)

If you act quickly, you might even be able to purchase a new copy of the game itself on eBay.
