Penumbra: Overture ships

Frictional Games has released the Mac port of Penumbra: Overture, its first-person horror game. Players assume the role of Philip, a man who suddenly receives a letter from his dead father. Seeking to investigate its significance, Philip travels to Greenland, where he encounters unexpected threats. The game is rendered in real-time, physics-driven 3D, and players must use their intelligence to fight enemies as well as solve puzzles.

Overture requires Mac OS X 10.4, a 1.5GHz processor, and a Radeon 9600/GeForce 4 video card (or better). GeForce 4 MX cards are not supported. The game is $20 in full, but is also available as a free demo. The story will be continued in Penumbra: Black Plague, which is due for a January 12th launch on Windows systems, the Mac and Linux versions coming "shortly" afterwards.
