It's been roughly one year since Aquaria was released and developers behind it are still showing it love with some major updates. A Mac port was recently released featuring widescreen support, a whole host of fixes, and graphical and audio upgrades. A PC patch is slated to release this weekend that bundles in all of the improvements built into the Mac port. To celebrate, they've even created a new trailer for the event.
After a quick look through all of the media available for the game, it's easy to see the charm in the hand-crafted beauty of the underwater world that Derek Yu and Alec Holowka have created. The game was awarded the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at IGF 2007. It's earned critical acclaim from every media outlet that has reviewed it.
