Penumbra: Overture for Mac released
Finally we at Frictional Games can proudly present the finished version of Penumbra: Overture, previously released on Windows and Linux, for Mac OS X.
Penumbra: Overture is a first person adventure game, rendered in real-time with advanced physics, featuring an intriguing story with a dark and disturbing atmosphere. Penumbra: Overture has been considered to be one of the scariest games of 2007 and is now available as a universal binary for Mac OS X.
Our initial plan to release for all platforms within a short time period unfortunately didn't follow through as we encountered many difficulties with getting things to work properly on the Mac. But from a more positive point of view, most ground work has now been laid out, and for our future games we can commit to a continued support for all platforms.
