I’ve been off doing boring business-related stuff this week, so I’m a bit behind with all the Mac-related news. So here’s what you might have missed, in the completely unlikely situation that Control Command Escape is your only source for Mac gaming news.
The forthcoming board game-to-computer game Space Hulk got a trailer:
Fables: The Wolf Among Us
The next adventure game from Telltale has been announced, without much in the way of details. It will feature a wolf and will be a prequel to the Fables comics:
Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ to a car-stealing Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York City.
Can Telltale recapture the success of The Walking Dead?
The next game from Double Fine was sort of announced this week. Dubbed Broken Age, the point-and-click adventure game was famously funded through Kickstarter, and ushered in a new wave of Indie game funding. It’s now a got a name (having previously been called “Double Fine Adventure” and then codenamed “REDS”) and a trailer and a website.
Supercar racing game GRID got released, and is now available on the Mac App Store, the MacGameStore and Gamersgate (but tellingly, not Origin, at least not yet). Are people excited by this? I genuinely have no idea.
Fester Mudd Episode 1
Also released to the Mac App Store was Fester Mudd: Curse of the Gold Episode 1. A point-and-click adventure game, seemingly in the vein of Freddy Pharkas. Why not check it out, as I shall be doing?
The Kickstarted Uber RTS Epic’s developers (who we previously shared some words with) have some new beans to spill, this time featuring some pre-alpha footage.
Pandora: First Contact
Pandora’s looks interesting, as a modern take on the classic Alpha Centauri:
Pandora: First Contact is a science fiction turn-based strategy game on an epic scale. In the future, mankind has discovered a new, earth-like planet, capable of supporting life, it has been dubbed “Pandora”. This planet features a wide variety of eco-regions, from the frozen ice lands of the north, to vast deserts and lush tropical forests in the south. It is also far from desolate, hosting dangerous alien wildlife that are more than capable of wreaking havoc on the invading humans, from deadly swarms to agile predators, and there is even talk of a giant in the oceans!
It’s accepting sign-ups for the beta right now.
