Freeverse Releases Atlas: The Gift of Aramai
8:59 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In the tradition of fine Mac-only 2D RPGs, Freeverse has released a new title, Atlas: The Gift of Aramai. The game has been in development for quite a long time: IMG previewed it in early 2000. Atlas features an immersive experience with over 850 NPCs, 150 unique items, and multiple quests. Here's a description of the story line:

There is great unrest in the realm of Ammeth. A new evil has risen in the northern reaches of the kingdom, and darkness spreads throughout the land. A young diplomat named Jarreck is dispatched by the crown. His mission is urgent: to seek the root of the evil, and to eradicate it.


Atlas: The Gift of Aramai is a classic game of exploration and adventure in a realm on the brink of magical reawakening. Take the role of Jarreck as he leads an eclectic band of adventurers on a mission of reckoning and rediscovery. It is a pivotal moment for the realm of Ammeth: will a hero arise to challenge the darkness?

Atlas requires minimal hardware, needing only a PowerPC and ten MB of RAM. It also supports systems as low at 7.5.5, so it should be playable on a wide variety of machines. Head over to Macgamefiles to download the demo now, and be sure to check out Freeverse's page to purchase the full game.
