‘Squids’ from The Game Bakers swims onto Mac this Week!
Independent developer, The Game Bakers, is bringing their popular tactical RPG, Squids, to Mac this week. These releases represent the first new platforms for a game that has already had great success on iPhone and iPad, where it ranked as the App Store's #1 RPG in 34 countries and spent a week as the #1 paid app overall in France. Set in a colorful underwater kingdom, Squids is a creative RPG with a humorous storyline, gorgeous cartoon artwork, and turn-based battles that pit a team of scrappy squid heroes against hordes of ooze-infected crabs and shrimp. An accessible game easily enjoyed by casual gamers, Squids also has impressive gameplay depth and production values that will appeal to a hardcore audience, thanks to the developers' previous experience working on AAA computer and console games. From the very beginning, we wanted to bring SQUIDS to players of all platforms, so we developed it with a much deeper scope than most mobile games. Then we put a lot of effort into making sure the game plays great on the Mac, says Emeric Thoa, The Game Bakers' Creative Director. This Mac release is a big milestone for us, and just the first of a series of releases on 'larger' platforms alongside the mobile versions of SQUIDS.

As the first version of Squids for desktop computers, the Mac version has intuitive mouse controls and enhanced graphics optimized for screen resolutions up to 1900x1200. Squids for Mac incorporates much of the bonus content released for iOS over the past five months, such as additional missions and stat-boosting helmets -- all with no in-app purchase required.
