Macworld (Oct. 13, 2006):

    Jeff Smith's 'Bone' cartoon game comes to Mac

    Vanbrio Entertainment on Friday announced the release of Bone: Out from Boneville for the Macintosh. Based on Jeff Smith’s popular cartoon fantasy series, the 3D adventure game is available for download as a playable demo and costs $12.99 to register and unlock.

    The first installment of an episodic adventure series, “Bone: Out from Boneville” follows the story of three cousins — Fone Bone, Phoney Bone and Smiley Bone — who become separated in a desert. They find their way into a forested valley where they meet its unique inhabitants and uncover its secrets. The game is chock-full of puzzles, mini-games and surprises.

    “Out of Boneville” is based on Smith’s acclaimed Bone series, following the same story line as the original cartoon series, which mixed comic camp with high adventure and originally ran from 1991 to 2004. Telltale Games has brought the series to life in games for the PC — Vanbrio worked with Telltale to bring the series to the Mac.

    System requirements call for a G4, G5 or Intel Mac (it’s a Universal binary), 1GHz or faster, Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, 512MB RAM and 32MB graphics acceleration.
