Twelve Games, the International Game Development studio is pleased to announce the release of the MAC and LINUX versions of CID THE DUMMY on Steam. Utilizing the cutting-edge porting capabilities of CodeWeavers, CID THE DUMMY’s new Mac and Linux versions will expand the availability of this innovative title to a wider gaming audience.
CID THE DUMMY is a playable action/platform game starring CID, a crash test dummy whose goal is rescuing the beautiful daughter of his inventor. In the process, CID has to navigate a fast-changing world, and fight a variety of foes. Filled with an amusing blend of action and puzzle-filled game play, CID THE DUMMY blends classic platform elements such as timed jumps, collecting pick-ups, defeating enemies, and challenging boss battles with more cerebral elements such as puzzles, clever weapon use and route finding.
“We’re very excited that CID will be able to entertain Mac and Linux gamers now,” Twelve Games CEO, Giuseppe Crugliano. “We know that the Mac and Linux game markets are expanding, particularly with Valve’s rolling out many of its own titles for those two platforms. CodeWeavers was able to get us to that space quickly and easily, and we’re very pleased to be in this new market.”
While CID THE DUMMY is an action game, with a sophisticated fighting system, it’s still friendly. There’s a minimum of gore, and a maximum of fun, with lots of electrifying elements, humor, and addictive gameplay. The game’s sophisticated fighting system presents hysterical confrontations, but ironically enemies die with no gore!
“We’re amused at the irony that our platform game is now truly multi-platform,” said Crugliano, “CID can now compete on any operating system, and we’re certain that he’ll be able to prevail in any situation!”
