“Due to some technical issues, we’ve had to hold back the Mac version of Among the Innocent for the time being,” says the developer, Geoff Burrows. “It’s at the top of our list of priorities right now, so please bear with us while we work out a few final kinks in the Mac build. We’ll send out a notification to let everyone know the Mac version is live.”
About Among the Innocent
Among the Innocent is a first-person thriller adventure game that takes place on an abandoned farm in the eastern Free State, South Africa. Players take on the role of struggling writer Peter York who finds himself trapped in the area. In your bid for freedom, you’ll need to keep your wits together as you explore the bleak landscape and uncover (and maybe even solve) the many mysteries that lie in dark corners.
Among the Innocent is the first of five games, together The Stricken Tales, which will form an expansive narrative across multiple decades, characters, and stories both individual and connected. Each game is inspired by a stage in the Kübler-Ross model for dealing with grief and loss, and will challenge players in unique ways while retaining a core of classic adventure gaming and dark aesthetics.
