November 17, Philadelphia, PA - Today indie gaming innovator Cipher Prime continues its impressive expansion, introducing Fractal as the company’s first game for the Mac App Store and Steam.?

Fractal for Mac is expected to be available on the Mac App Store today. The Steam release for PC and Mac is planned for the coming weeks.?

In this lush music puzzler, Fractal players push, combo, and chain their way through a pulsing kaleidoscopic dreamscape, which pumps all the while at 130 BPM.? Three different gameplay modes in Fractal and an ever evolving soundtrack keep the experience fun and interesting.? Campaign mode takes players through the world of discovery, with each level presenting new ways to play, while continually extending the challenges. The campaign bends and twists in ways that will completely alter the way people view the game.? Puzzle mode features over 50 intense scenarios that hone the players’ skills for Campaign mode -- right up until the time it sets their brains on fire.? Arcade mode adds to the mix, with flat out fast-paced thrills.?
