My god the trailer music is just sooooo good.

Love it!

Downloaded it for Mac. Won't open. Grrrrrr.

Did you ever find a way to open it?

Downloaded it again. Didn't work again. Sad emoji goes here.

Everybody, you can solve it by this:

Assuming you downloaded the file and unzipped it to your Downloads folder:

  • Open Terminal
  • chmod +x ~/Downloads/forma8_Mac/forma8.app/Contents/MacOS/forma8

Then right click it and Ctrl-Click “open” and in the warning, again click “open”.

Have fun.

Another idea that could work is using the itch.io app. It's worked for me on other games so maybe it'll work her. Haven't tried myself yet.

Edit: yeah it works

A beautiful exploration game, challenging in places but never punishing.

Thank you! :)
