Unrest At Mac Game Store
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Unrest from KISS is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The role playing game is based on ancient India and gives players the task of attempting to aid five ordinary people struggling to survive poverty, disease, treason, and both political and social upheaval.

Set in a fantasy interpretation of ancient India, Unrest is an adventure RPG focused on story and choices. Play as five ordinary people who are struggling to get by in the famine-stricken city-state of Bhimra.

Brave poverty, disease, treason, political and social upheaval. Face unique burdens and gripping dilemmas as you struggle to survive in each chapter...but choices made to help one character may well make life harder for another.

In Unrest, there are no heroes of legend, there is no mystical quest, and fate has not chosen you.
You're on your own.

  • Diverse Characters: Play as a peasant girl faced with an arranged marriage, a priest troubled by his radical temple, a slum dweller with a dangerous past, an ambassador from a militant nation, and a mercenary captain far out of his depth - all as part of the same narrative.
  • Reactive Storyline: Hard decisions made in one chapter have consequences in the next. A choice made as one character may well determine the fate of another.
  • No Right Answers: There are no fail states in Unrest - if a character dies or fails in their objectives, that becomes part of the narrative. You can play in Iron Man mode to ensure there are no second chances, or save/load if you wish (not that we recommend it).
  • Complex Conversations: Unrest's dialogues are organic, branching exchanges designed to offer an unparalleled level of control and involvement to the player. You'll always know exactly what you're saying and how you're saying it, and you'll be able to see how much the person likes, fears, or respects you as a result.
  • Violence is Rarely the Answer: Combat in Unrest is rare and always avoidable. When faced with the possibility of death, it's up to you to decide how much you're willing to risk.
  • Lush Art & Music: Unrest's hand-drawn sprites and environments call to mind a living canvas, while the classical Indian soundtrack perfectly echoes the narrative's emotional core.
  • Mod Support: Create and share your own worlds and adventures.Requirements:
    • Mac OS X 10.7 or later
    • 2 GHz Dual Core Intel Mac
    • 2 GB RAM
    • 1 GB HD Space
    • 512 MB VRAM
  • Unrest is available now for $13.49 (USD), a 10% discount.

    Dungeons 2 Announced
    6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

    Kalypso Media has announced that Realmforge Studios is currently developing Dungeons 2. The sequel will feature 4 person multiplayer, an all-new Overworld system, and "enhanced evil." In the game players take the role of evil Dungeon Lord, recruiting fearsome new monsters to aid in conquering the underworld and the overworld as well.

    If terrifying dungeons filled with hordes of loyal minions and underworld domination are your thing, then look no further! Leave your fear at the door and once again dare to enter the lair of the Dungeon Lord, as Kalypso Media announces that Dungeons 2 is currently in development by Realmforge Studios and scheduled for a 2015 release. Sequel to the 2011 bestseller Dungeons, Dungeons 2 aims to take inspiration from the very best titles in the dungeon management/simulation genre and blend in its own trademark dark humour to deliver the most complete dungeon experience fans have been waiting for.
     
    The Dungeon Lord is back – and this time he’s serious! In Dungeons 2, fulfil the Dungeon Lord’s insatiable quest for vengeance by recruiting fearsome new monsters from all corners of the underworld in order to undertake his evil bidding. Taking over the underworld isn’t enough though – this time The Dungeon Lord will extend his dominion over the puny humans and attempt to conquer the overworld too!
     
    Take control of the mighty Dungeon Lord and craft a network of unique and terrifying dungeons, recruit an army of fearsome creatures and command two new factions. Prepare to defend your Kingdom against those pesky heroes, go above ground to wage war on their human cities and use the ‘Hand of Terror’ to take direct control over your minions, issue commands, and even dish out a swift slap to keep them in line.
     
    The extensive campaign story mode is packed with even more of the dark humour which made the original Dungeons a hit and is peppered with numerous references to various fantasy books, movies and TV shows. Additionally, you can test your strength in four different game modes in multiplayer for up to four players with other Dungeon Lords over LAN or online.
     
    Features of Dungeons 2:
    • Featuring a thrilling single player campaign with 2 playable factions, 26 unique creatures, multiple types of heroes and game modes, Dungeons 2 is the Dungeon Manager simulation game, you've been waiting for
    • Dungeons 2 offers unique gameplay: In the underworld, Dungeon manager simulation, and in the overworld, tactical real-time strategy
    • Thanks to the ‘Hand of Terror’ you can always keep control of your subordinates and give targeted commands
    • Leave the darkness of the underworld, and venture to the overworld and leave the beautiful cities of the humans in ruins
    • Four competitive multiplayer modes for up to four players via LAN and Internet
    Dungeons 2 is scheduled for release in 2015 for Mac, Linux, and Windows PCs via digital distribution and boxed retail. For more information please visit the links below.
