The Princess Bride for Mac

The classic novel and film The Princess Bride is now available as a five-game suite, allowing players to interact with their favorite characters, such as Princess Buttercup, Westley, Inigo Montoya, Fezzik, Vizzini, and Miracle Max. Inside Mac Games reveals that the game will feature some of the original movie cast reprising their roles, including Mandy Patinkin, Wally Shawn, and Robin Wright Penn, as well as movie-quality animation. The Princess Bride sells for $20, and will ship June 30th.

The game takes players through the events of the story, in five separate episodic games. Episode one, As You Wish, revolved around time and click management, while the second episode, Battle of Wits, is billed as an "Inconceivable Trivia Challenge".

Episode three, The Fire Swamp, is a teamwork-based puzzle platformer, while players help to mix potions and find hidden items in episode four, Miracle Max. Lastly, Episode 5 has players collect and assemble an inventory in Storming the Castle.

    wait...what?

    I'm a big Princess Bride fan, but even I can't imagine the focus group that gathered around to figure out the marketability of a game centered around a cult classic Rob Reiner film of 15 or so years ago.

    In short...this idea is inconceivable!
