'Nimble Quest' Scheduled to Be Released on March 28th

A new teaser trailer has been released in celebration of this news, showing off all the cool stuff you can do in the Snake meets RPG game. Make sure to check the vid out -- especially if you managed to miss our exclusive web preview of the game over the weekend...

'Galaxy On Fire 2 - Supernova' Sees A Delay, We See A New Trailer

Galaxy on Fire creator Fish Labs just shot us a note: Galaxy on Fire 2 - Supernova, the follow-up to the game's last expansion Valkyrie, has been delayed into September. Turns out that launching cross-compatibility across three different versions -- SD, HD, Full HD for OSX -- and three different platforms is tough. Fish Labs explains:..

Whoa! World of Goo [$2.99 / UHD], a game that we're always stoked to talk about, has hit one of those benchmark download numbers. According to developer 2D Boy, the physics-puzzler has hit one million downloads across the App Store and the Mac App Store. That's a lot of loving for an indie game that doesn't have a toy line...

'Leisure Suit Larry HD' Is Happening In 2012

Sierra On-Line’s edgier point-and-click adventure franchise, Leisure Suit Larry, will live a new life in this fascinating age of revivals and downloadable games. Replay Games, an outfit headed up by an old Sierra employee, has managed to grab the ancient IP and plans to release an HD version of Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards in Q4 2012. This will be followed by several other re-makes and maybe even a new game or two if things pan out...

This past June at WWDC, we sat down with the folks from Illusion Labs to dish on all things Touchgrind [$4.99] related, and the team revealed to me that their original iOS mega hit would be coming to the Mac App Store this Summer. Illusion Labs showcased a proof-of-concept video in January of 2010 showing Touchgrind being played on a MacBook Pro using the multi-touch trackpad, which led to our speculation that the game would come to the Mac with the announcement of the Mac App Store last October...

In celebration of the July release of Battle Slugs [$.99], a hexagonal strategy game that has you, as a storm of slugs, claiming territory, German creator GameProm has slashed the price of one of its key releases to pennies, while also cutting cost of a select group of games to $0, which is always a great price...

One of the finest games available, Osmos, is now just 99¢ whether you own an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac computer. Osmos was originally released as a PC game back in 2009, and went on to win a crazy amount of awards from all four corners of the media...

When the iOS App Store launched in early July of 2008, I'm not sure anyone would have thought it was going to grow to the gargantuan beast it is today. Hundreds of thousands of apps later the iPad was introduced which complicated things further with 2x scaling for legacy app support, iPad-exclusive apps, and in some cases, universal compatibility. Last week Apple expanded the App Store ecosystem even further with the Mac App Store, allowing for iOS-style app purchasing in a desktop environment...

Ever heard of Steam? It’s a digital distribution platform created by the ever-clever minds at Valve. When it launched, it was PC-exclusive. Now, it supports the Mac and Valve has even created tools for developers to port their games over...

The Mac App Store is upon us, or, those of us who own a Mac, I suppose. After spending the day fiddling with it, buying various games, and trying out other things, there's a lot of potential here but still room for improvement. What sticks out as one of the immediate best things about the Mac App Store is how wonderfully open it seems to be. Back when it was first announced, many DRM doomsday theorists proposed that this was going to lead to the Mac being just as locked down as the iOS platform. So far, this couldn't be further from the truth...

Mac App Store Now Open for Business

January 6th, 2011 10:05 AM EST by Jared Nelson in Mac App Store, News

Last month it was revealed that the Mac App Store, which was announced by Steve Jobs last October, would be opening for business on January 6th. A quick glance at your lock screen should tell you that that day is today. While it was rumored that the Mac App Store wouldn't officially become available until 12pm EST today, it appears that the folks at Apple just couldn't wait to let everyone through the front door. Mac owners running OS X Snow Leopard can check their Software Update option for the newest version 10.6.6 which will add the Mac App Store to their dock...
