Taking a break from a steady stream of action and strategy games and other fare, Aspyr Media Inc. on Monday announced plans to publish CSI: Dark Motives for the Macintosh this summer. The game is based on the hit television show CSI, and puts you in the role of a forensic investigator trying to track down the evidence that will help you solve five complicated crimes.
CSI: Dark Motives features the actors, voices, music and atmosphere from the original TV show. You’ll use “real-world” forensic tools like fingerprint dusters, UV lights, a magnifying scope and microscope to discover and analyze evidence in the expanded crime lab, putting your investigative skills to the test. The game features improved graphics and more challenging cases than the first CSI title, which Aspyr also brought to the Mac. Licensed by Ubisoft, CSI: Dark Motives will be developed by Critical Path, according to Aspyr.
Aspyr hasn’t posted a Web page for the new game, but reports preliminary system requirements calling form Mac OS X v10.3.8 or later, G4/700MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 2.3GB hard disk space, ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better 3D graphics with at least 32MB VRAM, and DVD drive. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB, and will soon be available for pre-order for US$29.99.
