This beautiful work of art is a perfect example of a modern adventure game. While there has been a drought of games in this genre, we’re about to see an explosion from the people that helped define it. In the meantime, why not play this incredible game on your Mac right this moment? It’s available on the Mac App Store for only $9.99 USD.
In the same way Machinarium is a modern interpretation of the adventure game, Braid is a reimagining of the 2D platformer. This hand-crafted indie game takes elements of what made the Marios and Sonics so much fun, and adds incredible graphics and new gameplay elements that make it more about thinking and less about twitch reactions. Unbelievably, you can currently pick up Braid on the Mac App Store for only $3.99 USD.
World of Goo
When you hear the word “Physics game,” you either start snoring loudly, or you think of something along the lines of Angry Birds. World of Goo, however, isn’t boring at all or in any way similar to Angry Birds. The goal is to use little droplets of goo to build structures to a designated point on the map. If you build it properly, there will be enough goo left over to be sucked into a pipe and take you to the next level. World of Goo is incredibly fun, and gives you a lot of bang for your buck because it is only $9.99 USD on the Mac App Store.
