Frictional Games has announced the release of a demo version of Penumbra: Black Plague for Mac. The sequel to Penumbra: Overture, the first person adventure game continues the horror laden tale of Philip and his quest to unravel the secrets of the past.

The full release of the game is scheduled for release next week. At the same time an updated full version of Penumbra: Overture will be released, adding optimizations and fixes to Overture from Black Plague. The demo for Penumbra: Overture is already updated and available.

About Penumbra: Black Plague & Overture:
Penumbra is a first person adventure game which focuses on story,  immersion and puzzles. Instead of using violence to progress the player has to use his/her wits to guide Philip on his quest to unravel the past.

Played from a first person viewpoint, Penumbra is very different from other adventure games. Not only is it powered by a 3D engine utilising cutting edge technology, it also has an advanced physics system which allow for a never before seen environment interaction. The player can open drawers, pull levers, pick up objects and more using natural mouse movements creating a highly interactive and dynamic game world.

Penumbra will keep players on the edge as they have to explore scary and atmospheric environments never knowing what is behind the next corner. The world  is detailed, graphical as well as a story wise making the player feel part of the world as secrets are uncovered.
Frictional also confirmed that the upcoming expansion Penumbra: Requiem is heading for Mac & Linux, with more details to be released as the game nears completion during the summer of 2008
