Fastforward Software today announced the public beta of Galder, a new puzzle board game for Mac OS X. In Galder, the player must remove gem stones as quickly as possible from an interactive circular game board by matching identical stones. “Until now, Fastforward has focused solely on software titles including FinanceToGo and QuickSnap. Today marks our entrance into the gaming market.” A public beta of Galder is available free-of-charge and will expire within 30 days. The company expects to ship the initial version of Galder as a digital download in late Q3 2007 at a retail price of US$19.99.
