Like playing video games? Here are a few things you might be interested in.
Thing #1: I’m sure you’ve already heard this but just in case I’m going to let you know that right now Portal is free, gloriously free, for Mac and PC through May 24th. This is a promotion by Steam to help announce that they can now deliver games to Macs. If you’ve never played Portal I encourage you to do so. Go on. (Portal 2 is coming this winter, I’m so very excited.)
Thing #2: Puzzle Bots by Erin Ryan, aka Lively Ivy is out and available to buy. This is a retro style adventure game where you control a set of tiny robots. It’s terribly fun (I’ll post more once I’ve played further), but you can read more about it here and there is a review at Jay Is Games.
Thing #3: Consider buying the Humble Indie Bundle. It is six games – World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugara, Penumbra Overture and Samorost 2 – all from indie developers offered without DRM and at whichever price you’d like to pay. You even get to decide where your payment goes, charity, developers, or a combination of both. All games are offered for Mac and PC. I bought the bundle specifically for Samorost 2 and Aquaria. (p.s. If you find the combat bits of Aquaria frustrating email me, I have a simple fix for you.)
