It is most likely that the graphics card is not capable of running the game. Do you know what graphics card it is?

Yeah, it is:

Chipset Model: GMA 950
Type: Display
Bus: Built-In
VRAM (Total): 64 MB of Shared System Memory
Vendor: Intel (0x8086)
Device ID: 0x27a2
Revision ID: 0x0003

Its not that old, and Intel. (and a mac) so i'm not sure why i have such a hard time running 3D games.

The GMA 950 is an integrated intel chipset graphics card that is really old and doesn't support penumbra ( and many other games ). Apple only used that chipset in like 2 lines of machines ( MacBook and Mac mini) and learned their lesson and are now using the integrated nvidia chip which works MUCH better.

So, unfortunately you can't run penumbra in that machine ( there is a thread in the open source forum discussing further details on why it won't currently work )

Developing away on one of
Multiple Macs running 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9.
Linux, 8-core AMD, 8GB RAM, Fedora 18, nVidia 450 1GB
