Frictional Games is now offering the full version of Penumbra: Black Plague for Mac in its online store. 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.
Penumbra: Black Plague is a first person horror adventure focussing on story, immersion and puzzle solving. Unlike Penumbra: Overture, violence and combat are not even an option - the player has to use his/her wits to guide Philip through his final test, and this makes the game unique in offering a truly dangerous and terrifying experience.Requirements:
Played from a first person perspective and powered by a 3D engine utilising cutting edge technology, Penumbra: Black Plague is a true advancement to the adventure genre. The unique physics system allows for true environmental interaction in a way only comparable its predecessor. The player can open drawers, pull levers, pick up objects and now manipulate those objects in 3D space - all using natural mouse movements, creating a highly interactive and immersive game world.
The Penumbra series' central character, Philip, is realistically vulnerable, while enemies are fierce and intelligent. Any object can be picked up and thrown in defence, but the end result might only be to buy some time or, more likely, anger enemies further. Avoiding, outwitting and sneaking past enemies entirely provide the best chance of survival.
Penumbra: Black Plague will put players on edge like never before as they explore bizarre and mysterious environments, the unknown awaiting them behind every corner. The world is detailed both in terms of graphical fidelity and narrative character - Penumbra: Black Plague is a horrific experience that will grip players from its opening thrills to it chilling denouement.
