GRID 2 Reloaded Edition Racing Onto Macs This Summer
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Feral Interactive has announced that the multi-discipline racing game GRID 2 Reloaded Edition will be unleashed on the Mac this summer. Developed and published by Codemasters for PC and consoles, GRID 2 Reloaded Edition is the successor to the acclaimed GRID, previously released on the Mac by Feral.

“GRID 2 Reloaded Edition hits the sweet spot between realism and arcade racing,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “It does a fantastic job of capturing the real-world feel of each car while giving players the sense that they can master any car.”

GRID 2 Reloaded Edition features ‘World Series Racing’, an embryonic racing league with global ambitions. Players are tasked with becoming WSR’s star driver and building it into a top motorsport by facing off against drivers from local clubs all over the world in a selection of electrifying competitions. Nerve-jangling chases along mountain roads, drift events through the city streets of Paris, Miami and Hong Kong and high-speed races on renowned circuits including Yas Marina and Brands Hatch are all part of the schedule

The series’ trademark balance of realism and accessibility is refined in GRID 2 Reloaded Edition with the TrueFeel™ handling system. By emphasizing the unique characteristics of each vehicle in such aspects as gearing, torque and weight distribution, TrueFeel offers players a heightened driving experience that challenges them to adapt their technique to match the machine.

GRID 2 Reloaded Edition contains all the additional content previously released for GRID 2, including over 20 additional cars by manufacturers such as McLaren and Aston Martin.

Pricing, system requirements and a minisite dedicated to GRID 2 Reloaded Edition for the Mac will be revealed closer to the release date.

Legend Of Grimrock Available Now At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Almost Human's Legend of Grimrock is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The fantasy RPG is an old school dungeon crawler which puts players in the role of a prisoner exiled to Mount Grimrock. To escape they must form a party and make their way through Grimrock's ancient tunnels and dungeons.

Legend of Grimrock is a dungeon crawling role playing game with an oldschool heart but a modern execution. A group of prisoners are sentenced to certain death by exiling them to the secluded Mount Grimrock for vile crimes they may or may not have committed. Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons and tombs built by crumbled civilizations long perished now. If they ever wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain, level by level.

The game brings back the oldschool challenge with highly tactical real-time combat and grid-based movement, devious hidden switches and secrets as well as deadly traps and horrible monsters. Legend of Grimrock puts an emphasis on puzzles and exploration and the wits and perception of the player are more important tools than even the sharpest of swords could be. And if you are a hardened dungeon crawling veteran and you crave an extra challenge, you can arm yourself with a stack of grid paper and turn on the Oldschool Mode which disables the luxury of the automap! Are you ready to venture forth and unravel the mysteries of Mount Grimrock?

Features:

Requirements:

Deponia: The Complete Journey Begins
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mac Game Store has added Daedalic Entertainment's Deponia: The Complete Journey to its list of titles available for purchase and download. The three episodes in the award winning Deponia adventure series focus on hapless anti-hero Rufus, his girfriend Goal, and their unwavering quest to leave the junk planet of Deponia behind for the lofty heights of Elysium city.

Junk, junk and even more junk. Life on the trash-planet Deponia is anything but a walk in the park. No surprise that Rufus had enough of that and hatches one ludicrous plan after the other to escape this bleak place.

When Rufus, on one of his attempts to leave Deponia behind, meets Goal, he not only falls madly in love with the beautiful girl from Elysium; he also accidentally shoves her right off her comfortable star cruiser and down to the desolate trash-planet. This accident kindles a new, brilliant plan: he needs to get Goal back to the floating city of Elysium – and while he's on it, he can also impersonate her sleazy fiance Cletus, who is the spitting image of Rufus for some reason. And thus, an exciting adventure begins...

Showered in top-scores and awards, the Deponia-Trilogy, created by the developers of Edna&Harvey: The Breakout, The Whispered World and Memoria, managed to reach cult-status almost instantly. Thanks to its exciting story, likeable characters and hilarious dialogues and a finely crafted mixture of comedy and puzzles, Deponia is enjoyable for both, young and old. Join Rufus on his thrilling journeys, for the first time in a complete edition with many new features, that will not only be a blast for hardcore adventure fans, but also those new to the genre.

Features:

  • From the creators of the award-winning games Edna&Harvey: The Breakout, The Whispered World,A New Beginning, Harvey's New Eyes, Memoria and Blackguards
  • Deponia: The Complete Journey contains more than 4 hours of developer's commentary featuring game creator Poki and the voices of Rufus and Goal

  • Challenging puzzles, more than 40 hours of playtime and bizarre dialogues
  • Bonus content, extras and making-of features include 'How to draw Rufus & Goal' and 'The Art of Deponia' videos, Developer's Commentary Soundtrack (6 new songs created and sung by Poki) and papercraft models
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.7 or later

Dominions 4 Update Adds New Race
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ilwinter Game Design has announced the release of version 4.07 of Dominions 4, the latest installment in the fantasy strategy series. The update adds a completely new race to the roster of over 70 races already available in addition to new spells, summoned units, crafting options, and a variety of bug fixes. The Ragha, a dark race that can adapt to both hot and cold climates, receives slightly different units depending on the climate as well as a variety of special summoned units and craftable objects.

Dominions 4 is divided into three playable eras, early, middle, and late. Each era has different, yet connected, nations. Every nation has a variety of historical or mythological troops that are connected to real world history and mythos as well as various other benefits or detriments. Upon selecting a new nation you will also be given an option of would-be gods to select. Every god is radically different with different mythos, stats, powers, and magic and can be massively customized to fit your nation or strategic plan. Perhaps you wish to create a hulking Cyclops with rock like skin and the proper magic to forge super powerful magical items, sending your god to the front lines and obliterate your foes. Perhaps, instead, you would create a physically frail Phoenix, instead using your magical fire affinity to rain destruction across the battlefield as well as through global enchantment without a care in the world if he dies, for if a Phoenix dies in your domain it is instantly reborn at your capital. Or stranger still, to create a god that summons monsters every turn like Pan and focus instead on leaving him in the safety of your capital summoning creatures from mythology to do his bidding alongside the regular national troops. There are millions of possible combinations to choose from.
 
Dominions 4 brings several major improvements and changes to the Dominions franchise. The largest of these changes is the Thrones of Ascension, which not only add valuable boosts to your blessed troops and help spread your dominion, but give an objective based game that is much faster than the previous Dominions games to win at. Additionally Dominions 4 has Disciples Mode, which adds a co-op mode where multiple players can have mini-gods called disciples which work together to ascend their pretender to godhood. Veteran players of Dominions will find a lot of UI and streamlining improvements, including the ability to auto-recruit, set battle formations, wrap-around maps, improve fortifications, and much more. Lastly the number of units and nations has increased about 20%, adding even more variety to the already robust world.
