New iMacs are out!

The new iMacs seem to be out this week, and it is always good to check with what hardware it is shipped! So, i checked with full expectancy, but was disappointment with what I saw… Apple sticks on the Intel graphics cards for the general cheaper basic systems. An intel HD Graphics 5000 for the basic 21″ system (with only 1.4Ghz!!!) costing $1099 which is in my opinion quite expensive for it is. Then for $1299 we still have no Nvidia card, but we are stuck with an Intel Iris Pro graphics card, which is luckily a bit better then the Intel HD Graphics 5000 and twice the speed (2.7 Ghz), but still not what we want. And finally after paying at least $1499 you got a Graphics card worthy of gaming, a Nvidia Geforce GT 750M. So there is unfortunatly no AMD radeon GFX card (what I hoped) in one of the iMacs released. A real shame…. The only good thing with the iMac is that it is shipped with at least 8GB internal memory expandable to 16GB which is really needed with gaming.

Conclusion: If you are thinking to move to a new iMac and you love gaming. Save a bit more to get at least the iMac with the Nvidia Geforce GT 750M for better game support and better experience…

Lifeless Planet for the Mac!

For tonight I ported Lifeless planet for Mac, which has very good potential. Lifeless Planet, itself works great, but there is an issue with saving…..I will try to find a fix for that, but meanwhile you need to play in one row or don’t shut down the game :P. I created a video of the gameplay below. Enjoy!

Simply download the wrapper below, unzip it, get the game from GOG.com and install it into the Wrapper and set the “LifelessPlanet.exe” file as start executable and play! For more detailed info, check the video below.

Lifeless Planet is a new 3D PC action adventure that puts players in the moon-boots of a volunteer astronaut on a one-way mission to a life-bearing planet far outside our solar system. But after a rough landing, the promise of a new Earth soon fades with the discovery that the planet he was to explore is now barren and inhospitable.

Munin released for Mac!

Imagine you could move mountains – literally! With realistic physics, Norse runes, rotating platforms and a lot of gray cells you’ll help Munin, Odin’s messenger in her very own 2D-adventure, to reclaim her power on a journey through Yggdrasil. Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of rotating environments to surpass obstacles and to solve puzzles

Munin bolsters the traditional side-scrolling experience with the use of rotating environments to surpass obstacles and to solve puzzles. By twisting portions of the environment, players will create bridges from pillars, turn walls into floors or open new passages. Further gameplay elements, like switches, moving environment or items influence by physics add even more depth to the puzzles: by rotating the game’s world, boulders and debris will rumble, roll and fall. Liquids like water or lava will flow accordingly and Norse runes will show the way to the raven’s lost feathers. Munin features nine amazing worlds, 81 exciting levels and roughly 7 hours of enjoyable playtime.
