Depths of Peril For the Mac!
The Mac version of last year's "Indie RPG of the Year," Depths of Peril, is now available! At least the demo version is now available. The full version should be available shortly.
Depths of Peril is an action-RPG with a dynamic world. You compete against several other factions - called Covenants - that are cooperating to save a small barbarian border-town, but simultaneously vying for dominance. They are your allies and your enemies, and your rivals for quests. Make deals and treaties with them, cooperate with them, trade with them, or extort from them, or declare war on them. Do what you can to sever their ties with other covenants before they declare war on you and your own Covenant. Every game is different, and every Covenant has their own preferences and style.
Quests are dynamic and time-limited. If you and the other covenants fail to complete a particular quest in time, consequences may follow. Some failed quests may result in potential recruits dying or leaving. Others may escalate, as a small uprising in a distant territory turns out a leader that may build an army and attack the city.
Quite frankly, it's an awesome game, incorporating a lot of elements I wish we'd see more of in other RPGs.
Depths of Peril has been available on the PC for some time, and it looks like Steven Peeler and company have been quietly laboring away on the Mac version these last few months. Congratulations to the Soldak Entertainment team.
Mac gamers - now's your chance! As I understand it, it requires OSX 10.4 or 10.5, and at least a 1.5 GHz CPU.

Great to hear. I'll have to check it out, but I doubt I have the hours to put into a game like this. I'll still probably support it, though.
I caught this on RPGWatch yesterday, and I got hooked. This is an incredible game, a game that actually went beyond trying to copy Diablo, they innovated, and the results are addicting.Post a Comment
