Hemisphere Games just announced via PR email that Osmos is now available for Macintosh. Osmos is a physics-based puzzler where players direct larger motes to eat smaller motes, but motes must eject their own volume to move.
If you’re wondering why you should care, we previously covered Osmos when it was nominated for four awards at the IGF and was later accepted as one of the PAX 10. It’s a clever game concept that will likely appeal to both hardcore and casual gamers.
So, if you’re a
gaming leper Mac user, go check out the freshly posted demo.

Watching gamers play at the Osmos booth was hilarious. They’d grab the mouse with that kill-and-win attitude that works well for so many other games and immediately die. However, in a repeat try or two, everyone had learned to settle down and take a more deliberative approach to Newton’s third law. Dave Burke was on hand to explain why everyone’s experience turned out that way, along with a detailed explanation of Osmos and some thoughts on the game’s future.
