I’ve blogged about Osmos before, and I’m happy to see that it has finally been released, though us Mac users will have to wait a wee bit longer.
From the Microscopics blog:
Osmos Released: Free Copies to Give Away
Osmos, the ambient game with the ambient soundtrack, has been released and we have three free copies to give away. Just add a comment to this post below, and we’ll use our atmospheric-noise derived, random number generator to draw three winners on Monday 24th Aug. Easy.
Note that actual gameplay is smoother than the video.
The full game has 47 levels and features music from Gas, High Skies, Biosphere, Julien Neto, Loscil and others, and is DRM free.
$10 from Hemisphere Games direct
$10 from Steam
$10 from Direct2Disc, plus gift Osmos to a friend for $1
A demo is also available if you’d like to try first.
WinXP/ Vista/ Bootcamp currently, with Mac and Linux versions to follow.
Mac and Linux versions will be free updates if bought direct from Hemisphere
