2008-11 Monday 17th, Penumbra: Requiem released for Mac & Linux, AIKA & Nomination

Frictional Games is happy to announce the release of Penumbra: Requiem for Mac & Linux. The puzzle expansion for Penumbra: Black Plague is now available through our online store at USD 9.99.

Driven completely insane from creating the Penumbra games, Frictional Games is offering all three Penumbra games as a collection at a horrific price of USD 35. This offer is available through the online store and is for Mac & Linux only.

Penumbra: Requiem has previously been released for Windows by publisher Paradox Interactive. Paradox Interactive is set to release a Penumbra: Collection for Windows in Q1 2009.

In related news, AIKA - an orchestral soundtrack, narrative and graphics project was released last Friday. This soundtrack was created by, among others, Penumbra musician Mikko Tarmia & writer Tom Jubert. Be sure to take a look at AIKA as much of the greatness in the Penumbra series comes from the music and story. To spice things up even further, Tom Jubert is nominated for "Best Videogame Script" at this years Writers’ Guild Awards 2008 to be held at BAFTA on Sunday 23rd November. We wish him all the best of luck!

About Penumbra: Requiem
Requiem is a puzzle expansion for Penumbra: Black Plague. The game contains numerous physics based puzzles, spread out over 9 levels with unique settings. The expansion pushes the graphics capabilities of the game as far as it can - while creating the most detailed and dreading environments yet in a Penumbra game.

The expansion gives extra details to the characters from previous Penumbra games, taking peeks into their final moments of insanity.

I highly recommend people look into reviews of Requirem.
It doesn't feel like penumbra, and it doesn't 'play' like penumbra. Looks the same, but I wish I hadn't purchased it.

Please -REP me.
Honestly, please do. I want to see how low I can go!!
Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.
