Point-and-click horror game Anna is making its way to Mac on November 9, Kalypso Media Digital announced today. The game was developed by Italy-based indie studio Dreampainters. Originally released for PC in July 16 of this year, the game received mixed reviews from critics, scoring a 55 at metacritc. Some reviewers loved the game, SpazioGames gave it a 8.0 saying that “the debut of Dreampainters in the big market of the videogames is excellent. Anna is a great horror adventure game. The sawmill evolves with the plot and the three final contained in the game increase the longevity, between 5 and 10 hours. It’s a winner bet for the Italian development team!”Others hated it, like Destructoid’s Holly Green who gave it a 3 out of 10 citing translation issues which hurt the game’s plot.
The game’s publisher describes it as a “first-person horror adventure that explores the darkest depths of the human psyche. Set in an abandoned sawmill nestled high in the mountains, Anna challenges you to uncover horrific clues and use them to solve puzzles related to your character’s dark past. As you play, Anna will change locations and unveil new secrets. The way you play will not only determine the mental health of your main character, but will also lead to one of three possible endings.”
