The Manhole Masterpiece Edition for Mac!

From the creators of Myst, comes a great journey full of humour, wonderful music and unforgettable moments. Prepare yourself for a grand adventure in the world of epic wonder and whimsical magic. A world where every character comes to life and every new hallway leads to another wild dream. A word of mystery and magic. The world of The Manhole.Though officially for children, this game is a delightful experience for players of all ages.

The game is available on GOG.com and works very well on my Nvidia iMac. I played the game for about 30 minutes without any issues. The only thing you need to think of is that you have to click on the bottom of the screen to exit the Screen when you drink tea or milk in the Rabbit’s house or in some other cases. Check out the video below for the visual instructions and some game-play.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “The Manhole” game and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Legend of Grimrock 2 for Mac!

Legend of Grimrock 2 is a dungeon crawling role playing game with a modern execution but an oldschool heart. A group of four prisoners have shipwrecked on the secluded Isle of Nex. The island is filled with ancient crumbled ruins, mysterious shrines and a vast underground network of dungeons and mines. If the prisoners wish to make it out alive, they have to overcome the challenges devised by the ominous mastermind of the island. The game is available on GOG.com and works perfectly on my Nvidia iMac.

Powers of perception and logic are more important than sheer force is, since Legend of Grimrock 2 puts a heavy emphasis on exploration, survival and challenging puzzles. Discover powerful ancient artifacts from hidden secret chambers and buried treasures. Arm your champions, cast spells and craft enchanted potions and bombs to aid you in fighting the dreadful monsters in highly tactical real-time combat.

Grim Fandango is by far the single most wishlisted game by the GOG.com community with an overwhelming 45,000 votes. It’s a unique blend of Mexican folklore with film noir stylings, and has been critically praised for its art direction, writing, and memorable characters. The game will be released on 27 January and the ones pre-ordering get a small token of appreciation which you can see in the video below.

Grim Fandango’s epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot’s Game of the Year award upon it’s original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Grim Fandango Remastered includes:

  • Repainted, hi-res character textures
  • New, dynamic lighting
