Penumbra: Overture
 – 

Objects half visible

Making the objects half visible makes the game more thrilling, it makes you think. What's the sense to glow the object and make it very obvious that that's the one you need, did you used your brain. This game is more like puzzle/mystery solving. Sneaking than attacking. Focused on the story. We should be thankful that someone has created a game like this for Mac. Use intel and nvidia graphic card for this to look good. I use intel x3100(not a good vid card),but it just looks the way it is. No dropped frames even on full resolution.

This game was originally on windows so I dont think it will look good on PPC.

Penumbra Black Plague

BGM makes it scary, gameplay is great.

The graphics may not be the best but it is not bad. The gameplay is amazing, you can interact with almost anything around you. I would say this is one of the scariest game I ever played. At first it made me uninstall this. why? I'm too scared to continue and see the icon hangin on my finder and my dock. The sounds are amazingly scary, the sounds are also the hint when your near danger or if somethings up.

This is a puzzle/mystery/adventure game, it's focused more on story and puzzles. This is dark and horrifying. I couldn't even continue because I'm too scared for this kind of game, I just couldn't stand it.

These are great on Mac. I tried this on my intel macbook, and set the game resolution to 1280X800 (macbook full resolution), and it played smoothly, no dropped frames.

I don't know how will it look like on PPC. Some people were complaining about Penumbra: Overture about the bad graphics on their Mac, maybe their using PPC thats why.
