From Broken Rules, the developer of the extremely well regarded And Yet It Moves, comes Secrets of Raetikon ($10), a new game now available in the Mac App Store. Not surprisingly, it’s a visually stunning adventure, although the style is totally different than that earlier title. Playing as a bird flying through the game, you explore a story that becomes revealed through interactions with the world and ancient runes.
A single player game, Secrets of Raetikon is full of all kinds of animals with whom you’ll interact. The environment evolves based on your actions. A level editor lets you change the game around, too. It’s the graphics that are really killer, though, as the characters and levels are rendered out in cool geometric patterns, with bright, beautiful colors.
