Save The Princess In Concursion
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mac Game Store has added Mastertronic's Concursion to its list of titles available for download and purchase. The action title challenges gamers to save the princess from the Dark Lord Biganbad in a unique adventure which will challenge traditional platform stereotypes and feature elements from five classic genres.

Dark Lord Biganbad has - sigh - once again kidnapped the princess. But this time his evil schemes have gone too far and mysterious rifts between realities have exploded across the world.

Start from where most platformers finish – at the bag guy’s castle. Run, jump, fly, fight and occasionally dance through the kingdom on your quest to unearth the truth behind these rifts, save the princess, and put a stop to Biganbad once and for all.

Features:

  • Say no to stereotypes. From start to finish, your knowledge of traditional platformers will be flipped on its head.
  • Five classic gameplay genres. Explore the worlds of platformer, shooter, hack-n-slash, jetpack and maze racer/puzzlers instantaneously in a seamlessly integrated world.
  • More genres. Experience even more play styles in each unique boss battle.
  • Evolving soundtrack. Emmy-nominated composer Christopher Hoag (House M.D.) has created five sonic flavors of every song, cross-blended between worlds.
  • Fusion play. Radically different game mechanics are employed in quickfire succession.
  • Unique worlds. Each world is defined by its own unique art and music, meaning you’ll always know whether you’re in a cartoon, outer space, or even feudal Japan.
  • Control mapping. Five unique styles of play mapped to the same few buttons mean you’re always in control.
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.7.2 or later
  • 3 GHz Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 2 GB HD Space
  • 1 GB VRAM
Concursion is available now for $11.99 (USD).

Wasteland 2 Expands Beta Access
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

InXile Entertainment has expanded beta access to nearly all Kickstarter backers of the company's upcoming post-apocalyptic Wasteland 2 RPG. Available to some backers since December, backers at an tier who are eligible for a copy of the game will now have the option to gain access to the steam Early Access version of the game.

The Wasteland 2 backer beta launched in early December of last year, which means it's been in eligible backers' hands for over half a year now. In that time many have played the content through to completion, often multiple times, and have been providing us with invaluable feedback and input. Wasteland 2 is undoubtedly better than it could have ever been without you.

With release only two months out, we felt like this is the right time to expand Wasteland 2 beta access to all backers at any tier who are eligible for a copy of the game!

So that's what we're doing! Starting right now any backers whose Tier didn’t include access to the WL2 digital deluxe edition can log into their accounts on the Ranger Center and find a Steam key for the Early Access version, under the "Donations" tab, bottom of the page. Note that keys will not be available to everyone simultaneously, if you instead find a "available soon" text this is not an error, it will be available as soon as possible. Upon Wasteland 2’s release at the end of August, this beta version will turn into a final retail copy of the game.

Trine To Be Enchanted By Updated Engine
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Frozenbyte recently announced that it will offering a free update to its fantasy action title, Trine. The Trine Enchanted Edition will give players the chance to experience the game in a new mode using the more advanced Trine 2 engine. Other updates will include features like multiplayer support, updated visuals, and improved gameplay.

Trine Enchanted Edition is a port of Trine to the Trine 2 engine, and as a result, many of the “missing” features of the original game, such as online multiplayer, have been added! We have also updated the visual appearance of the game and improved the gameplay – the game should look and feel even better now.

This is still under development and just the Beta-version. Bugs and issues are likely to occur as it is still a work in progress. We are launching a beta because we’d love to hear feedback before a full release. The beta and official release of Trine Enchanted Edition will be for Windows only at first. We will be adding the Mac and Linux versions of Trine Enchanted Edition shortly afterwards, but we don’t have a clear estimate of the time frame yet, because most people here are starting their summer holidays soon. Our apologies for the delay.

More details about the update and specific release dates for all versions will be available in the future.

Wargame Red Dragon Roars Onto Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Focus Home Interactive and Eugen Systems recently announced the Mac debut of Wargame Red Dragon, the third title in the Wargame series. The cross platform multiplayer real time strategy title drops players into the midst of an Asian conflict in the years between 1975 and 1991.

Wargame Red Dragon is the 3rd title in the spectacular Wargame series of real-time strategy games created by Eugen Systems. The series quickly became a new reference point in the RTS genre, beginning with European Escalation, and then its direct sequel, AirLand Battle.

Wargame Red Dragon retains the same core game mechanics that have made the series so successful, but the action leaves Europe for the first time and moves to a conflict in Asia between 1975 and 1991.

Wargame Red Dragon once again stretches the limits of the RTS genre, including: dynamic and tense gameplay that demands strategic vision and depth; a spectacular and realistic visual experience; new features such as the warships and maritime units; a perfected dynamic campaign system and much more.

Check out the link below for more information.
