Moar Mac Kickstarters

Been a while since I backed something, but this game pushed a lot of (good) buttons for me:


Animal Crossing with a Studio Ghibli style, plus dungeons and farming. The page doesn't make it entirely clear, but the FAQ specifically mentions Mac support.

Interested to hear about others.

Overload (don't call it Descent)

15 August 2017 - 08:50 PM

Just spent an enjoyable 90 minutes playing Overload 0.6 (early access on Steam).

It's not called Descent because the Descent: Underground folks have the rights to the name, but the actual veterans from Descent are developing Overload. (For example Matt Toschlog, who worked on Descent 3 and helped Duane Johnson port it to Mac.) Emphasis is on single-player whereas D:U is emphasizing multiplayer. This isn't news for some of you, I know..

Anyway I just wanted to post that the game is shaping up great. Runs really smoothly on my Mac Pro 2008 (with GTX 680). Today I played some challenge levels (survival mode, basically) and a couple of the single player levels. Now I feel slightly nauseous and the room is spinning a little. It's just like old times!

Although the game isn't done it's not too early to try it out. I had a problem with fullscreen showing a corrupted screen, but once I'd switched back to windowed mode temporarily the problem never came back (Might have been a corrupted setting from playing the teaser level last year.) It's otherwise been rock solid.
