Black Shades Released for OSX
12:01 PM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story

Independent programmer Derek Arndt, the man behind OSX ports such as Barrage or Cube, recently made his latest project available for download. This time Arndt focused his skills on the carbonization of Black Shades, the bodyguard simulator with which David Rosen won the award for best sound and music in the uDevGame 2002 contest.

In Black Shades, the player takes the role of a bodyguard with psychic powers whose duty is escorting a VIP through a randomly-generated 3D city, protecting him from wave after wave of assailants. Though the lack of textures and the blocky models might turn eye-candy lovers down, this impressive little game boasts skeletal animation, ragdoll physics, iron sights aiming and many other features only present in the most modern first-person shooters.

The carbon version of Black Shades is available for download at our sister site MacGameFiles through the link below.
