Re-release of the Penumbra Series for Mac&Linux - USD 5 launch offer!

Helsingborg, Sweden - 15th of July 2009 - With a brand new installer the three Penumbra games will be available as a single download starting this Friday the 17th. The new release will improve the user experience compared to the original "three downloads with three serials"-installation procedure.

During the launch weekend of Friday the 17th to Sunday the 19th the Penumbra Collection for Mac&Linux will sell for a mere USD 5! Windows users recently had the same offer available to them and due to numerous inquires from Mac&Linux gamers we hope that this offer will achieve full cross-platform horror enjoyment. After the launch weekend the Penumbra Collection will sell for USD 20.

The Penumbra Collection will be available in the Frictional Games Store for Mac&linux. In addition the Mac version will also be available from the Mac Game Store, Mac Games Arcade and the recently launched Gamer's Gate for Mac. All stores are participating in the USD 5 weekend launch!
