The Medium is the biggest and most ambitious game to date from the Polish horror studio Bloober Team. First launched in 2021, it’s a third-person psychological horror game that features dual-reality gameplay that plays out across two separate worlds displayed at the same time.
The game is set in the late ‘90s following Marianne, a psychic investigating the abandoned Hotel Niwa in search of answers about her past. The Medium allows players to explore the physical world and the spirit world simultaneously, and use the interactions between them to solve dual-reality puzzles, unlock new paths, and awaken memories of past events. The spirit world is a dark mirror reflection of our reality, and it has been modeled and designed under the inspiration of Polish dystopian surrealist, Zdzisław Beksiński’s paintings. The incredible visuals were enhanced by the original soundtrack co-composed by Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka.
The Medium takes full advantage of Metal — software that powers hardware-accelerated graphics on Apple platforms — resulting in smooth and responsive gameplay with high frame rates and stunning visuals. Combined with the game-changing performance of Apple silicon and the power of macOS, the Mac lineup delivers an incredible gaming experience. Users can play The Medium with ease on any Mac with Apple silicon — from the incredible desktop lineup of Mac mini, iMac, and Mac Studio to powerful Mac laptops of MacBook Air and Macbook Pro.
