6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments

Perfect World Entertainment, Cryptic Studios, and TransGaming have announced that the Star Trek Online free-to-play MMORPG is now live on Mac. Players can choose their destiny and play as Federation, Klingon, or Romulan factions before setting forth to explore the galaxy, captain a starship, and engage in epic space and ground battles.

"Star Trek fans have been asking for Star Trek Online on Mac since we launched in 2010. Thanks to the tremendous success we’ve had with the game, we're excited to be expanding the galaxy again." said Cryptic Studios CTO & Executive Producer, Stephen D’Angelo. "We know there’s a large gaming community that thrives on Mac and we’re thrilled to finally be able to let them experience Star Trek Online. It simply looks amazing on Mac widescreens."

"Perfect World has created Star Trek Online to be the ultimate sci-fi MMORPG, providing players with a rich and vibrant world true to the Star Trek franchise and we are thrilled to have it join the catalog of AAA games our technology has brought to Mac gamers globally," said Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming. “The richness and depth of the game are a direct result of the sophistication of the underlying code base and engine by Cryptic Studios, as well as the incredible amount of time that was invested in development. By utilizing TransGaming’s Cider technology to enable Star Trek Online, Perfect World has very effectively leveraged their investment to transcend platform boundaries and monetize the game on Mac without the need for any redevelopment.”

Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship. Or they can become a Klingon Warlord and expand the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy. With its latest expansion, Legacy of Romulus, players can work to rebuild the Romulan legacy as a member of the Romulan Republic. In Star Trek Online players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species.

Find The Loot In 1954 Alcatraz
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

1954 Alcatraz from Daedalic Entertainment is available for purchase and download now at Mac Game Store. The adventure game allows players to control the story of Joe and Christine, a gangster couple whose loyalty to one another will be tested by Joe's incarceration and the loot he left hidden before his arrest.

The cash is out there. But who will get it?

Joe's doing 40 years on Alcatraz for a heist on an armored truck. The loot is still hidden out there, but only Joe knows where it is. In the streets of San Francisco, Joe's ex-accomplices and his wife are eager to find the stolen money. Who will get their hands on the dough?

In this interactive Point & Click adventure by Daedalic Entertainment and Irresponsible Games - the team of Gene Mocsy - Joe and his wife Christine will be playable characters. Players will decide between love, treachery, life and death: will Christine assist Joe during his prison break? Will they recover the fortune together? Or will they succumb to greed? Will Christine deceive her husband, taking revenge for all the disappointments and a marriage that brought her nothing but hardship? Will she just turn her back on Joe and hit the road with his former accomplices? Or will Joe gain everything in the end?

1954: Alcatraz offers all what makes a great adventure: challenging puzzles, a mature crime story with a dynamic plot and various possible outcomes, and a whole bunch of shady characters: brutal felons, making life on The Rock even harder for Joe, while outside not only his partners-in-crime but also snoops and cops are after the money and Christine. The cinematic San Francisco of the 1950s, caught in a gritty comic style is a harsh place. But it's also a place where 1954: Alcatraz can also pay homage to history and zeitgeist, in form of the Beatnik culture and other contemporary themes.


  • Two playable characters: the gangster couple Joe and Christine
  • More than 20 additional 3D animated characters
  • More than 60 hand drawn backdrops, based on original footage of San Francisco, North Beach and Alcatraz
  • Challenging puzzles and exciting dialogues by Gene Mocsy, co-writer of Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island
  • Atmospheric Beat and Jazz soundtrack by Pedro Macedo Camacho (Fairytale Fights, Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, A Vampyre Story, Audiosurf)
  • In-game decisions extensively influence the plot and lead to various endings
  • Mac OS X 10.7 or later
  • 4 GB RAM
1954 Alcatraz is available now for $19.99 (USD).
