Narrow Monolith earlier in the week released their first alpha build of The Tower which i talked about here, a puzzle game set in dark age Britain utilizing light to create a great feel along with unique puzzle ideas. It seems Narrow Monolith have been very busy this week trying to increase the accessibility for people to get their hands on this game.
Narrow Monolith have now released their Mac version of The Tower, a little bit later than they originally intended but all that matters is the build is out so for all of you Mac users there is no longer a reason for Mac users to not pick The Tower up. Also Narrow Monolith this week have put out the first demo build of the game to hopefully get more people than ever hyped about this upcoming game allowing more people than ever to actually get firsthand experience of the game if they missed the initial free copies that were given away on release day. Sadly at present time the demo is only available for Windows users but this is due to a small overstretched development team so you can’t be too hard on them as they continue to bring more updates for The Tower.
Narrow Monolith have also put The Tower onto the Steam Greenlight Community project so if you like what you see of The Tower so far I encourage you to up vote them over their. The next installment of The Tower should be released this week and I am eagerly anticipating this next episode as the first showcased a very interesting story and strong unique gameplay, but I have always been a sucker for games that remind me of Myst for one reason or another.
The Tower is currently in its first alpha build with the next installment out sometime in the coming week if all goes to plan and is available from Desura here. Narrow Monolith have also got a Indiegogo funding project up now over here so check that out if you like what you see. Be sure to check back to IGM in the next few days for a full round up on how The Tower’s next installment turns out.
