Basilisk Games, Inc. today announced the availability of Eschalon: Book I for Macintosh computers. The game is the company's debut title in a planned trilogy of "old school" fantasy RPGs. Book 1 will will take players across massive outdoor environments and deep into sprawling dungeons as they seek to uncover the mystery of who- or what- they are.

“The Macintosh has become an exciting gaming platform over the past few years” said Thomas Riegsecker, Lead Developer of Eschalon: Book I. “We are very pleased to be able to bring our brand of role-playing to the Mac, further increasing gaming options on this great platform.”

With a focus on a single-player storyline, statistically driven character development and turn-based combat, Eschalon: Book I features a style of gameplay rarely seen in anymore commercial games. It is now available for purchase from Basilisk Games Online.

Founded in 2005, Basilisk Games is an independent game developer located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The company’s mission is to produce compelling old-school computer role-playing games for gamers who still remember what great computer RPGs used to be about: “Single-player. Turn-based. Stat heavy. Story driven.”
Eschalon: Book 1 costs $27.95 for the download only version and $37.95 for those who want the CD version. The CD comes with a variety of extras like a high resolution map of the game world, an extended music track, and the game's trailer in several formats.

The game requires MacOS X 10.3.9 or higher, a 1.8 GHz processor, 256 MB RAM (512 recommended), and a 3D accelerated graphics card.

More information on the game and links to the demo can be found online at the website below.
