Enter the ambient world of Osmos, winner of numerous awards for it's beauty, simplicity, and depth.

Elegant, physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals, and a sublime electronic soundtrack all come together in this arcade-puzzle game.

Your objective is to grow by absorbing other motes. Propel yourself by ejecting matter behind you. But be wise: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Relax... good things come to those who wait.

Progress from serenely ambient levels into varied and challenging worlds. Confront attractors, repulsors and intelligent motes with similar abilities and goals as you. more...

Nice game, pity about the obscure and time wasting update method.

Excellent non-violent (what a change) game!
Worth more than the asking price.

Lots of fun to play. I feel I've kind of exhausted it for now (not finished it, though) but it was incredible value. I'll return to it occasionally as it's nice and relaxing and ambient.

Osmos does look quite intriguing.
Let's see now, requirements are for at least OS10.4.4....yeah, that's for the Osmos demo but one must purchase Osmos through the MacCrappStore which is for 10.6 software only. Wow, that makes a whole lotta sense. OK, MacCrapStore doesn't permit demo downloads, right?
Seems like Osmos was originally coded for OS 10.4.4 or better. So If I'm running OS 10.5 I guess that I can't buy Osmos.
So why couldn't Osmos's developer make Osmos available for pre CrapStore operating systems?
This convoluted bullshit makes me say
"Fuck the MacCrappStore.... Die MacCrapStore die!"

An inquiry with the developers brought a reply telling me that Osmos 1.5.14, when purchased directly from their website IS compatible with OS 10.5 so I did buy a complete download and it works just fine. Two thumbs up for that. All the rave reviews are well justified. This thing is a gem.
But I still give the finger to the abominable MacCrapStore.

This is just awesome. You have to try it! (No, I'm not related to the developer, but this is so cool...)

First time I saw this game was today, when my brother told me about it. This is definitely an excellent game, and quite original too.
Price is fair! This game is now on my wish-list. :)
Good job, guys!

Wow! It's not the same old same old. What an enjoyable game. And, I agree, that even after a level is finished, you want to keep on going. The music, the graphics, and the gameplay are just wonderful. Screensaver, please? Animated desktop background anyone?

A relaxing game that is highly original. One unusual aspect is the creativity of matching the 'under a microscope' look to the orbital mechanics featured in some sections. Another is that even when I've succeeded at the task, I still want to complete the section and absorb all the motes possible. In fact, the orbital sections could be left running for a screen saver (perhaps not for too long, depending on the time it takes for all the motes to be absorbed). The music is great too.

Support is excellent. My OS X is case-sensitive and because of this there was a problem with one of the sound files. After a rapid exchange of emails we found the bug and Osmos now plays wonderfully.

Highly recommended.

Hi.
I think I have the case sensitive problem too because it freezes in the levels with the "High Skies" song on my computer but when I play the game directly in the disk image which is not case-sensitive, it doesn't freeze.

Do you have the fix?

Adrian

Hi.
Yes, the fix is: right-click (or ctrl+ left click) on the Osmos application, choose Show Package Contents, and look in Contents/Resources/sounds/. The words "of" and "to" also need to be capitalised so you need to change the file name to "HighSkies-ShapeOfThingsToCome.ogg".
