Tricky Software is developing its first game, an arcade title for Mac OS X and Windows called
Armado. In Armado, you assume the role of a heroic armadillo who must go on an adventure.
“He gets caught up in an adventure across his land through the dense woodlands all the way to the fiery volcanic mountains,” explained Tricky’s Zachary Waibel. “Along the way he’ll be meeting a lot of resistance, and he’ll have to be very quick in his boots to survive.”
In screenshots posted to the Web site, Armado shows characteristics of a 3D platform action game similar in concept to those made popular on console systems — roughly analagous to the games developed for the Mac by Pangea Software like Otto Matic and Bugdom. The site promises to offer a downloadable version of the game and movies of the game in action closer to release.
Tricky was founded by game veterans — alumni of various game companies, including Electronic Arts. Armado is Tricky’s first game. They plan an October release, both for Mac OS X and Windows.
System requirements will call for Mac OS X v10.2 or later and a G4 or better processor, including Intel Macs.
