Inside Mac Games Reviews Armado
2:08 PM | Tuncer Deniz | 6 comments

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of Armado, the recently-released game by new comer Tricky Software.

Here's a clip from the review:

The premise of Armado is given in a nice set of cut screens using pan and scan to give the feel of motion. You, Armado, a young armadillo reaching adulthood, are beginning the traditional quest to visit the queen Eagle who rules the land. However, as you go through the land you hear of dark tidings and soon see the results. Giant ants and crows have taken over the land and imprisoned the queen. Your quest, given to you by a fox you meet while heading home, is to climb the seven sacred mountains and put an egg in the nest at the top of each mountain, thus freeing the queen. This is enough of a story to start the game and keep it moving along.

    Myst Online: URU Previewed
    7:53 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

    Ten Ton Hammer has posted a new preview of Myst Online: Uru Live, the upcoming massively multiplayer addition to Cyan Worlds' popular puzzle solving series. The game will feature avatar customization, cooperative puzzle solving, a rich storyline, and a growing world to explore.

    The writing of Myst Online is also exceptional – if ever there were an MMO created for English majors, this is it. That doesn’t mean the prose is over-the-top or that Cyan Worlds is in love with its own voice, only that you’ll need to take it slow if you’re used to breezing through quest dialogues.

    “Alone or together, find a way. Alone or together, make a home.” With this, an syrupy female voice impels you towards a whole new way to play Myst. You’ll start out decidedly alone for the opening segment, however, and I quickly found out that (like the sundry iterations of Myst before it) this is not a game for the feint of heart. Not sure if you’re more the cheap thrills or the cranial drills type of gamer? The “tutorial” segment will sort that out for you. No floating exclamation points in day-glo colors here, you have to click on stuff in the Nexus to find your way to the tutorial area – the “Cleft”. Here you’ll meet Zandy, an easygoing interlocutor perched on a lounger underneath the awning of his RV a short distance from the cleft. He’ll clue you in on what you should do next should you need him (and if you’re new to the Myst way of doing things, you almost certainly will).
    Click on the link below to read the rest of the preview. The Mac Myst Online is set to go into beta testing soon.

    The Broken Hourglass Lore Update
    7:53 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Planewalker Games has released chapter 6 of On the Fly, the final chapter of a short story set within the world of The Broken Hourglass. The chapter concludes the tale of Lyrio, Maron, Zephra and Aenarii. A new serial short story will begin next month.

    Aenarii cut off any attempt at apology with a sharp wave of one hand, while he still trained the telescope on the tiny glider circling in the sky. "Have silent doubts all you like, but they are in flight. It is done... and far out of our hands." The Master squared his shoulders, collapsing the scope and resting it on the sill. "Perhaps we are the fools for whimpering at open windows when there are worries aplenty remaining on the ground."

    Maron followed his employer's example and straightened. The morning's earlier frustrations gnawed at him. Maron would have liked something triumphant to report. "We've had no success, sir. The capitol building is as tight as the Magistrate's corset." The Koru Palmyrna boasted few slender attributes save his dainty wits.
