Today, Double Fine Productions released a Mac version of its 2005 platformer Psychonauts
, along with a new Steam update and a companion iOS app.
The Mac version of the game is now available via the Mac App Store and Steam, among other digital retailers, and was funded by the private investment firm Dracogen Strategic Investments.
Along with this new Mac version, the PC Steam version of the game will receive a free update that adds achievements, cloud saves, and a modified version of the game's notoriously difficult "Meat Circus" stage.
"We are really excited," said Double Fine President Tim Schafer, "to finally be answering fans' requests for a more difficult Meat Circus." Of course, Double Fine's official statement notes the stage has in fact been made easier, despite Schafer's claims.
In addition, Double Fine debuted The Psychonauts Vault Viewer
, an iOS app that showcases the game's numerous "Memory Vault" sequences, with new commentary from Tim Schafer and Double Fine artist Scott Campbell.
In June, the publishing rights to Psychonauts "reverted" to Double Fine
, allowing the company to publish the game without oversight from previous publisher Majesco.
