2 excellent indies and 8 classic titles join GOG.com Mac catalog!

Mac gamers! We've prepared another set of games for you today. GOG.com is now offering almost 100 Mac titles! As for today's additions, we've got some RPGs, some strategies, a point-and-click adventure, an FPS, and even a space fighter combat sim. Most of today's additions are classic titles, but we also have two indies, that should appeal to old-school gamers nonetheless. Let's have a quick look at the new arrivals, shall we?

Starting with the indies, Legend of Grimrock is one of the last year's most celebrated independent games, briliantly reprising the classic dungeon crawler gameplay in modern visual style. The game comes with an intuitive built-in Dungeon Editor. Only $14.99.

Blackwell Bundle is a collection of four old-school point-and-click supernatural investigative adventures, complete with hand-drawn graphics and top-notch voice acting. A must have for adventure gamers longing for a new story to unravel. Only $14.99.

Moving to the classics, Alpha Centauri serves as a great spin-off of the legendary Civilization series, in a refreshing Sci-Fi setting. The game now comes with a very rare addition, the Alien Crossfire expansion. Only $5.99.

Fallout 2, the larger and even more open-ended sequel to Black Isle's smash-hit RPG will have you exploring the nuclear wasteland, potentially for hundreds of hours. If you're an RPG fan, this game is an obligatory addition to your collection. Only $9.99.

Sid Meier's Colonization, the classic turn-based strategy game of conquest and management, lets you play either the French, English, Dutch, or Spanish colonial powers, each with distinct characteristics and political situations. Only $5.99

Postal 2 Complete, the legendary sandbox of sadistic stunts and mindless mayhem witn no political corectness, comes in a form of gory FPS that will have your soul twitching and your mind screaming. Comes packed with the Apocalypse Weekend and Share the Pain expansions, for only $9.99.

Ultima 7: The Complete Edition includes The Black Gate, Forge of Virtue, Ultima 7 Part Two: Serpent Isle, and The Silver Seed, so you can expect many, many hours of masterfully crafted classic isometric fantasy RPG experience. Only $5.99.

Freespace (+Expansion), the cult space combat sim that casts you as a s a pilot for the Galactic Terran Alliance in the war with the ominous alien Shivans. This edition includes the original Freespace and the Silent Threat mission pack. Only $5.99.

Terminal Velocity is an action-packed fast-paced interplanetary fighter sim straight from the depths of 1990s. Check out the 3D Realms classic for only $5.99.

Conquest of the New World, a historical turn-based strategy title that puts you in control of a native civilization or an expeditionary force from one of five European countries. Complete with the Deluxe Edition features, such as the scenario editor. Only $5.99.

That's it for our January Mac selection. We hope you enjoy it. As you surely know by now, we're continuing our work to bring more titles to your Apple computers. For example, the Mac version of Geneforge 1-5, an RPG series for die-hard fans of the genre: hundreds of hours of gameplay, and unique setting, is coming out next Tuesday. Expect even more good news from GOG.com quite soon.

Just out of curiosity - is Freespace + Expansion really Windows 7 officially compatible, or someone screwed up again and it's just Mac version added?


btw, I'm still waiting for a list of games that were made officially compatible with windows 7 after the last announcement (when someone made a mistake and marked almost all games as win 7 compatible). I filled a ticket to support, got response that it will be checked, and nothing since then. I think that certain blue person knows who do I talk (write) about that to.

Amazing news! SMAC and FreeSpace will be instant payday purchases
This is such great news! Fallout 2 and Freespace for Mac?! And I don't even have to buy them again! <33333333
Not a mac-user, but impressed to see many non-dosbox/scummvm games here. I hope the lost Praetorians (or was it Imperial Glory?) will find it way back someday.

Edit: Ok, I'm curious ;-) Are Alpha Centauri, Fallout 2 and FreeSpace native mac versions or is some kind wine involved?

JudasIscariot: Yes, it's Windows 7 compatible :D.
I *think* that this is as much important, as Mac versions updates.

Just out of curiosity, how do the GOG versions of the legacy Mac apps like Alpha Centauri work? Apple has pulled Rosetta support and there was no universal binary available for many of these games, so there's no realistic way of getting the PPC binaries to work on modern Macs. Are they Windows versions running off WINE?

Don't care about this since I'm not a Mac user but hey, the more people can play these awesome games the better

Good job on making Freespace working well on 7 as well, GOG team

Good to hear. With wine for windows in development, are there any plans to get some kind involved to get older win95 games running? Are there any plans to get maybe involved to push the the development of wine for windows? I guess not, but maybe it's good to bring new ideas to you folks...
