6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
The Game Bakers has released its tactical RPG, SQUIDS, to Mac users. The game features a mixture of action strategy and role playing game mechanics, giving players the task of building a team of heroes and engaging in turn-based battles against corrupted sea creatures.
“From the very beginning, we wanted to bring SQUIDS to players of all platforms, so we developed it with a much deeper scope than most mobile games. Then we put a lot of effort into making sure the game plays great on the Mac,” says Emeric Thoa, The Game Bakers’ Creative Director. “This Mac release is a big milestone for us, and just the first of a series of releases on ‘larger’ platforms alongside the mobile versions of SQUIDS.”SQUIDS is available now for $9.99 (USD).
Set in a colorful underwater kingdom, SQUIDS is a creative RPG with a humorous storyline, gorgeous cartoon artwork, and turn-based battles that pit a team of scrappy Squid heroes against hordes of ooze-infected crabs and shrimp. An accessible game easily enjoyed by casual gamers, SQUIDS also has impressive gameplay depth and production values that will appeal to a hardcore audience, thanks to the developers’ previous experience working on AAA computer and console games. Both the Android and Mac versions are localized into five languages: English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
As the first version of SQUIDS for desktop computers, the Mac version has intuitive mouse controls and enhanced graphics optimized for screen resolutions up to 1900×1200. SQUIDS for Mac incorporates much of the bonus content released for iOS over the past five months, such as additional missions and stat-boosting helmets—all with no in-app purchase required.
