It's official! GOG.com supports Mac OS X.

We're bringing a part of our massive catalog of all-time classics to Mac, starting with an impressive 50 titles for Mac gamers to play and enjoy. 28 of the 50 titles, the best games in history, including Syndicate, Ultima series, or Wing Commander, will be playable on the Mac OS X for the first time ever--exclusively on GOG.com. The complete line-up reflects the diversity of available games unmatched by other distributors: classics like Simcity 2000, Crusader: No Remorse, Little Big Adventure, Theme Hospital mix with Anomaly Warzone Earth, Tiny & Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers, Botanicula, and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Speaking of monster-hunter Geralt and The Witcher 2, the Enhanced Edition of this award-winning mature fantasy RPG was released on Mac just today and is available on GOG.com with a 25% discount (that's only $22.24) for the next 48 hours.

Weeklong Promo: Mac & PC Essentials
We have also prepared a set of specially selected games from various genres that will be available 50% off for the next week: The Witcher Enhanced Edition, Crusader: No Remorse, Theme Hospital, Little Big Adventure, Postal Classic and Uncut, and Simcity 2000 are all available for 50% off--that's as little as $2.99 for unforgettable classics. This promo ends Thursday, October 25 at 6:15 PM GMT. However, The Witcher Enhanced Edition will be available for 50% off only until Saturday, October 20 at 6:45 PM GMT.

Remember, the 50 is just the beginning--we promise to release more amazing games on Mac in the near future. What titles? To find out and play even more best games in history check our website regularly, become a fan on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, or give us a nice +1 in Google+.

1UP: the contribution stats for the Pay-What-You-Want Humble Bundle :)
According to that link, the average Linux user pays more than the average Mac user.. With Linux being "free", how does that go with your "Mac owners have bigger wallets" argument?

1UP: If you don't own a Mac, why are you posting in here anyway?

No seriously, just what exactly, are you so butthurt about that you keep coming back to a thread which has no relevance to you, just to pick fights with people you don't even know?
I thought that was pretty obvious - they would like GOG to focus on the things they feel GOG should be focusing on rather than Mac support. This affects them (or at least they believe so).

Really? Any respect I had for you (not personally, but as another forum user / human being) decreased drastically after reading that. Reading your subsequent posts made it even worse. If you and your attitude were representative of Mac users then GOG would've made their biggest mistake ever by catering to the "Mac crowd".
The Witcher seems to have fallen out of this promo. Have I / we missed something?

Gah, I skipped over the "However" sentence somehow. Thanks!

I heard that argument before and it's pretty silly. Most people with low incomes won't have a Mac (big surprise) so is it surprising that, on pay-what-you-want sales, Mac users in general spend larger amounts? News flash: Mercedes owners also spend more money on tires and car wax. Considering how small the difference is, I think we can safely say there's virtually no difference and it shouldn't be an argument.

And, really, I don't mind that GOG sell Mac games now as long as they offer both PC and Mac versions in the same sale and don't lose focus.

Nice to hear, Linux.-support soon then? :)

PS. On a side-note, why doesn't people refer to "platform" as OSX or Windows, instead of Mac or PC? I'm typing this from Ubuntu, on a PC...

grviper: IBM PC gaming until the late 80s wasn't big. The graphics were ugly and the hardware was expensive. Atari 8-bit, Apple 2, C64 and Amiga, BBC Micro and even Spectrum were more developed in that regard. Ah, there were also those standardized PCs called MSX, which really took off in Japan. I wonder if GOG will release a few old Mac exclusives, just to tease people. Pax Imperia, Pathways into Darkness, Mission: Firestorm...
That would be really cool if they released Damage Incorperated (although I think it might have been released on PC too, it's a bitch to run nowadays). Like I said, I don't hate Macs or Mac users per se, and some of the Mac exclusives were really cool. I just don't like elitists.

I apologize to you all for being an asshole.

But you have to admit, that OJ bit was pretty funny.
To gog.com
Congratulations on your continued success. Like others, I believe DRM has done more harm then good, punishing only players who wish to pay for "games that are truly worth it."
The addition of support for mac is a real treat and the top of my wish list. Ignore the nay sayers and keep up the great work. Thanks for the funny pseudo-apple video lol.
Best regards.

Yeah, no. The non-Mac crowd crawls into a Mac thread and stinks it up by taking jibes at people they don't even know, with remarks like "Hipsters," "People who think style over computing is cool?" "People with more money than sense" and I'm sure you saw Cartman going nuts on your way here from the last page.

This is the other side of that coin. I mean if you're gonna say there must be something wrong with Mac users, someone's gonna say there's something wrong with people who DON'T use Macs. You gotta give an idiot their own medicine to troll em up (refer my recent posts.) The idiots won't be able to tell what's going on, but others will see what's up and luls will ensue.

and don't give me that "concerned about GOG's focus blablah" they're only coming here to ruin a party they weren't invited to.


P.S. Rest easy though, the "Mac crowd" doesn't invade the threads of other OSes to attack their users, cause we're happy with ours <3

GAH! FINALLY!!

Now I don't have to choose between my home and work computer!
I made a launcher app for The Witcher 2 in Automator so I can install the game to the default Applications folder and put the launcher on my Boxer shelf without having the data folder junking up the place.

I posted it here for anyone who doesn't know how to use Automator.

The Witcher 2 does not install to the Applications folder by default? Where does it install? Maybe I am misunderstanding you somehow. That sounds odd.

This is probably a really noob question, but you can put non-dos games on the boxer shelf? Like you just move them into the boxer folder?

The default location is /Applications/The Witcher 2/. I put all my games in a Boxer-skinned /Applications/Games folder. The Witcher 2 application needs to be in the same directory as its data folder and I didn't like the look of that on my Boxer shelf.

That's right. Any game. In fact you can put any type of file in a Boxer-skinned folder. It's just a normal folder with an image background. (Sorry if that spoils the magic.)

Magic spoiled but games organisation enhanced!

Thanks heaps, I look forward to re-organising my stuff tonight!
