GOG.com releases 36 more Mac games in their Game Catalogue!

GOG.com releases 36 more Mac games in their Game Catalogue!

GOG.com has released 36 Mac game ports on their website. Most of them (how convinient….) game ports I already did in the past + some existing Mac games and some DOS ports (thanks to Boxer). I don’t really mind they released those games for Mac on their website because when you sell Mac games, you need to support it as well! So this saves some time and we both have all the same goal: Bringing more games to the Mac! For a number of games mentioned below I haven’t created a game page on this site yet, but I am working on that :)

Quintessence: The Blighted Venom for the Mac OSX

I planned to do a couple things more but its already 0:00 up here… So I keep it to this one for tonight, tomorow I will put some other things up.

Tonight I wanted to honor Freebird Games by porting their free game: Quintessence: The Blighted Venom. I tested it succesfully on my Nvidia GT 640M iMac only, so I don’t know how it works on AMD Radeon (Most like it does) or  Intel Macs (one way to find out…). If you want to honor their work please considder purchasing “to the Moon” which is one of their other projects. Check out the fan trailer for Quintessence: The Blighted Venom below!

Unlike more traditional RPGs, <Quintessence: The Blighted Venom> has a primary focus on story-telling and atmosphere, delivering a unique experience as a narrative-driven “interactive show.” With an award winning original soundtrack comprised of over 60 songs, composed by James Q. Zhang and Kan Gao, music is an essential component of not only Quintessence’s atmosphere, but also the story itself. The opening and ending themes feature performances by the talented Laura Shigihara and Adam Mussell.

Skullgirls for the Mac!

Tonight another action platform port! Skullgirls is a 2D streetfighter clone, just as Guilty Gears and Marvel vs Capcom, but this time in full hd! Skullgirls features the most frames of animation per character of any fighting game, hand-drawn at high resolution and enhanced by real-time lighting courtesy of a powerful 3D engine. Simply get the wrapper and extract it. Then open steam and use the steam serial from Gamersgate to activate the game in Steam and play. Enjoy!

Skullgirls is a fast-paced, 2D fighting game developed by Reverge Labs and lead by tournament champ Mike “Mike Z” Zaimont and artist Alex “o_8” Ahad. Drawing on the best features the genre has to offer, Skullgirls is designed to be a tournament-grade fighter while remaining approachable and engaging for the casual player.

Red Shirt Released for Mac!

Life in the future will probably not look like the serial SF TV shows of yore: computers are already smaller than a tricorder, we have access to the world’s most complete database of wisdom and knowledge and generally use it to argue with people we will never meet and look up photos of cats with misspelled captions, and humanity won’t manage to ascend to egalitarian greatness as long as we have social media to distract us. This game is made available for the Mac on GOG.com, so you can buy this Mac game up there and play it on your Mac. When creating an account there gives you more cool stuff, because you will be added freely 10 games, form which 9 are also for the Mac! So don’t wait any longer and create an account up there using the login/create account link on the top bar or use the “add chart” button to do so. Have fun!

Enter Redshirt: it’s a look at how life on Distant Space 7 or Sumeria 5 could have been if they’d known about social networking in 1994. Available today for just $19.99, Redshirt gives you the chance to be a crew member who has to live with the challenges of managing not only your job requirements, but also balancing the intricate needs of the many (on the social application Spacebook) against the one (that would be you). Determining which outweighs the other is a constant struggle, and it’s not made any easier by the fact that you just might end up parading around on away missions wearing a shirt of the most dangerous color.

Free game: Puzzle Moppet

I found this one under the free games of  ShinyLoot. Puzzle Moppet is as the name already says a very nice and highly rated puzzle game. Guide the Moppet through the vast and eternal void of space, solving puzzles ranging from the delightfully docile to the devilishly devious. Get this free  game on shinyloot up here…

Save the Moppet from itself. The Moppet is lost and alone in the space wilderness, feeling sad and depressed. You are its only hope. Can you help?  The sun blooms as the clouds slowly roll by, a rising sea breeze howls softly as it roams the void. Immerse yourself in the lonely tranquility of this mysterious other world.

Democracy 3 released for the Mac!

Have you ever wanted to be President? Or Prime Minister? Convinced you could do a better job of running the country? Let’s face it, you could hardly do a worse job than our current political leaders. This game is made available for the Mac on GOG.com. They silently updated the game for Mac (no announcement), so that’s why the later  post.  Have fun!

Crime, unemployment, national debt, terrorism, climate change. Have you got the answers to the problems that face western industrialized nations? Here is your chance to find out. Democracy 3 simulates the motivations, loyalties, and desires of everyone in the country. A custom designed neural network is used to model individual voters, each with varying memberships of voting groups, political parties, and pressure groups. Each voter’s income is modeled, along with their levels of complacency and cynicism. This is the most sophisticated political strategy game ever created.

Silver Wrapper update!

There was mentioned a problem on the forums about Silver installing it into the wrapper, so even though I did not had the issue myself, I updated the wrapper with a later engine and improved the mouse movement/handeling in the game to perfect :) So if you don’t own Silver yet, you can get it from GOG.com and install it into the wrapper. If you already owned the game and experienced any issues in the latest wrapper, then try this one. Have fun!

Changes:
– Better mouse handling in the game.
– Issue with installing the game (if you had one) into the wrapper should be fixed.
– Paulthetall.com branded Icon
