Psychonauts, Torchlight, Wing Commander 3, and 19 other great games, classic and new, now for your Mac!

Our Mac gaming offer keeps on growing with the addition of a new or classic title every now and then, and our catalog of OS X compatible games has reached (and passed) 100-games milestone quite a while ago. Steady growth is not enough for us, though. We like to drop a content-bomb from time to time, adding a whole pack of Mac-compatible builds to the site. Well, boom! Today, such a pack arrives, with a collection of 22 exciting titles you can now download and play on your Mac! As usual, if you bought the Windows version in the past, you automatically gain access to the Mac version with no need of additional purchase. Let's take a look at the new arrivals, shall we?

7th Guest, a true milestone in gaming and a fascinating ghost story with fully-orchestrated soundtrack, for only $9.99 (now only $7.99!)

Cannon Fodder, a comedic classic top-down squad-based shooter with the tiniest soldiers fighting the biggest war, for only $5.99

Gemini Rue, a gritty neo-noir point-and-click adventure game masterfully mixing Sci-Fi and crime mystery genres, for only $9.99 (now only $7.99!)

Hocus Pocus, a spell-slinging 36-level serving of delightful classic platforming fun from the magical 1990s, for only $5.99

Torchlight, a masterfully crafted fantasy hack-and-slash from the makers of Diablo (MP3 soundtrack included!), for only $14.99 (now only $11.99!)

All of the above, as well as the following titles: Crusader No Regret, Duke Nukem Manhattan Project, Ground Control 2: Special Edition, Lords of the Realm: Royal Edition 1+2, Pinball Gold Pack, Resonance, Stronghold HD, Total Annihilation Commander Pack, Total Annihilation Kingdoms, Ultima 8: Gold Edition, are available on both Windows and Mac OS X starting today. Once again we'd like to remind you, that if you purchased any of these games in the past, you now have access to the Mac-compatible version on GOG.com with no additional payment required! We'll keep on working to expand our Mac-centric offer (134 games now, and counting), so drop by frequently and check for new titles.

vicklemos: Why do you say that? Valve's OS X ports are crappy?
avatar
Cosmodeer: The ports are good but the Steam client is still terrible on OS X, plus GOG focuses on ports for older games unlike Valve. I gotta appreciate what Valve has done for Mac gaming though, before they ported Steam to OS X it was pretty much a wasteland. So I was a bit unfair in my post.
Oh I get it.
Yep, when it comes to really distribute games GOG is surely the king. Thanks for the reply!

vicklemos: That's a totally newbie question here, but those apple displays REALLY make that much of a difference when it comes to gaming (when compared to regular displays)?
avatar
HiPhish: I have an iMac, so I have a pretty good display. I think the current models have even better displays though. My screen has great colours and everything is evenly visible, so no colour changes at weird angles. My previous Mac, a MacBook, had a worse screen where only the centre of your view was properly coloured and above and below colours got "washed put". You could tilt the screen all day, only the part that was at the right angle looked good.

This screen however looks just great, even if you are looking at it from the side. However, the screen was built for work, not for gaming, so the refresh rate is only 60Hz. For most people that’s fine, but for those who like their fast-paced FPS to run on 120Hz monitors it won't be enough. Another problem is the gloss, when the screen is dark and it's bright outside my screen turns into a mirror. Again, no problem for work, but it makes games like Thief unplayable on sunny days, unless I crank up the gamma, which ruins the atmosphere.

There are also standalone displays from Apple, I guess they are about the same as the iMac or better, but those prices are really high. One cool feature is the integrated Thunderbold hub, you can plug a Thunderbolt cable from your screen into your Mac and then you plug all your USB and firewire devices or even other monitors into the monitor instead of plugging everything into the Mac. I never tried a cinema display myself and if the screen of my iMac wasn't integrated (or rather the iMac integrated to the screen) I'm not sure I would have bought one, simply because of the price. On the other hand, everyone who has seen my Mac is amazed by the display :)

jorlin: I don't know how Darwine and similar variants on the MacOSX platform will fare here
avatar
HiPhish: Darwine is no longer being maintained, Wine is now avalable for OS X officially. In fact, there is now a native Mac driver, so we don't have to rely on the X window system anymore. For 3D games the Mac driver seems to actually have better performance than X11, but for 2D games it still needs to be worked on. It's getting better with each iteration.
Nice, thank you for your time, HiPhish. Just checked about this intel thunbolt plug and I'm amazed by such technology. Now that I know more about mac displays I'll look forward to see it in action and also check some ''gog gaming'' too and compare to my poor ugly looking windows machine.

So happy you're continuing to add to your Mac games! When do you anticipate adding Baldur's Gate to the Mac list? Can't wait to get that! Thanks!
I'd like to see some public credit given to Codeweavers, Winehq and doh123 (the creator of Wineskin). I was pretty bothered to find out that no discussion with her had ever taken place before GOG.com started using her tool to provide (and sell) "Mac ports", regardless if the license allows.

Lost most of my respect for the 'good will' aspect of GOG.com at that point.

If you feel there's anyone else they left off their list, let them know. Thanks to this list, those of us who donate know where to go. My last donation was $50 to the DOSBox crew.

Ah, doh123's name has been added, glad to see it. i know It wasn't true when Fallout for Mac was released here, but I should have checked to see if it had been updated before posting. I had a short discussion with doh123 at the time, in which she told me she had not been contacted, but I hope that has been rectified as well. doh123 gives most of her credit to the CodeWeavers team and WINE community, so I hope to see that on the same list. In particular Alexandre Julliard and Dan Kegel, though Mr. Julliard could probably insist on a much longer list.
