Aquaria coming to Mac
Ambrosia Software today announced an exclusive agreement with Bit Blot to release a Mac OS X version of Aquaria, the winner of the 2007 Independent Games Festival's Seumas McNally Grand Prize. The side-scrolling underwater action adventure game features an innovative and intuitive mouse control system, enabling players to guide the main character through a massive hand-crafted fantasy world teeming with undersea life. Players encounter hundreds of different types of plants and animals, exploring many in-game miles of hidden caves and lost ruins. "We're extremely excited to be bringing Aquaria to the Mac, and there's no one we'd rather work with than Ambrosia to make it happen," said Derek Yu, chief artistic officer of Bit Blot. The game will run natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, but the company has yet to issue a release date and system requirements are still unavailable.
