Penumbra Overture

Penumbra: Overture -- a first person adventure game which focuses on story, immersion and puzzles -- has made its way to Mac OS X and will be released shortly. Price at $20, the game tells the story of a young man whose mother dies, after which he finds himself in "an inexplicable metal hatch, in the middle of a frozen wasteland."

The game's developer says: "The weapon system differs from your average game; swinging a melee weapon is done using the mouse which increases the realistic feel of combat. Fighting enemies is not something best done with brute force though, in most situations fighting is a last resort and the player is often better of using his/her wits. The AI of the enemies will also do its best to hunt and scare the player. The creatures encountered can break down doors, use group coordination, interact with the physics and more."

No specific release date for the Mac OS X version has been given.
