Ambrosia Software has taken to the seas with the release of Aquaria for the Macintosh. The 2D side-scrolling underwater adventure game offers puzzles, exploration, and combat. Players take the role of Naija and work to unlock the secrets of her past while defeating or outwitting the various creatures they encounter along the way. Aquaria comes with a custom level and animation editor, allowing users to modify game play and share information on the developer's wiki and online forums.
More information about the game:
As players navigate through Aquaria's richly textured surroundings, they learn that one of Naija's gifts is that of "The Verse," the ability to sing combinations of musical notes to invoke her latent abilities. At first defensive, Naija's songs later give her ability to transform herself for combat, stealth, speed, and more, assuming players can survive the perils of the deep. Aquaria for Macintosh is available today for $30 from Ambrosia's online store, with a 30-day free trial version available for immediate download. Follow the links below for more information.
There are dozens of areas to explore containing new dangers and opportunities. Naija develops more skills and makes new discoveries about her past, often leading only to more questions...
The player easily adapts to the game's innovative mouse-only style of navigation, so that when the time comes to defend and attack, Naija is swift, agile, and her opponents are in for a world of hurt.
But the creatures lurking in Aquaria's depths have been there for a long, long time.
Developer and composer Alec Holowka and illustrator and developer Derek Yu comprise Bit-Blot, LLC, Aquaria's two-man development team.
The PC version has won multiple honors in the gaming community, including the prestigious Seumas McNally Grand Prize for Best Independent Game at the Independent Games Festival in 2007.
