Three new Mac games, from Seattle hobby startup

NPC Unlimited, a group of enthusiasts in Seattle and Bellingham, just released three new games for the Mac.

They include a shooting game called “Germ Patrol,” a word-find game called “Sunday Search” and “Ninety Nine Effect,” a science lab clicker that’s based on a card game one of the team members played as a child.

All three are released as shareware — an hour free, then $19 — from the NPC site and Apple’s download store.

NPC was started in 2001 by Hasan Edain, who works in medical imaging in Seattle, and Jeffrey Goetsch, a programmer and massage therapist in Bellingham.

They’re open source enthusiasts as well. The games were first written in Sprite2D, a Java framework they developed and open-sourced and share via Sourceforge.
