I recently discovered a game called Prodeus. It's currently in development, should go into Early Access in the autumn of 2019 while the full release should be in 2020. It's being developed by just two people who previously worked on games like 2016th iteration of Doom, the new Wolfenstein, BioShock: Infinite, Singularity, Payday 2 and some Call of Duty games. The project is also on Kickstarter with at the moment nine more days to go.

The way I'd describe this game is as a bloody gore throwback to the 90s. It's a fast-paced first-person shooter with many enemies coming towards you, a lot of blood and gore, coloured key-cards to collect to open doors, a lot of blood and gore, tons of secrets to find and enemies who'll turn everything into a bloody gore mess when you shoot them. Did I mention the game is full of blood and gore? Blood will even stay on the map, instead of just disappear like in other games. Of course, if you're a pussy you can turn down the amount of blood and gore. The whole game is just very customisable. You can adjust the amount of blood and gore, adjust the graphics to use 216p and sprites to make it really look like a game from the 90s or choose to play in 1080p+ with 3D models, you can customise the HUD and there's a level editor included.

I think this game looks absolutely amazing and according to the FAQ on Kickstarter the game will be available on Mac:
"Linux and Mac support?
Yes! For Early Access, we are targeting Windows, Mac and Linux."

This looks pretty good. I am a sucker for 90s style FPS games. I loved STRAFE. Unfortunately I have been burned by kickstarter's promising Mac before.

Looking at you Bard's Tale IV.

Looks like Quake 2 with upgraded graphics.

What do you mean? It’s coming alongside the director’s cut in June, which I’m waiting for anyway, playing in Windows.

I didn't kickstart Bard's Tale IV to have to wait 2 years for the Mac release. Until it's in my hands (as promised in the kickstarter) it's vaporware as far as I'm concerned. Cosmic Star Heroine is another one that the Mac release has never materialized.

I should preface that I loved STRAFE at the 90% off price I got it at GOG for. Game is called STRAFE, can confirm I strafed a lot. Game met expectations.

Heh. Well, after backing Wasteland 2, I backed Bard’s Tale IV full well I’d only be playing after the game is fully patched.

And it’s made easier by the fact that we got Bard’s Tale I-III remasters for free. I do hope those come to the Mac as they’re perfect laptop games. They said they’d start working on ports after III was released, but I haven’t heard anything.

Last official statement from April 1:

Quote

As we have messaged since last summer, we're looking into it now that all three games are out. A determination hasn't been made yet. Once there is, we will let folks know.

I doubt it will still happen.

By the way, DUSK is apparently a really excellent 90s style fps. Also has a Mac version.

Good point! Many games could do a better job of setting expectations by choosing a name that tells you what you'd be doing.
