Syberia 2 for Mac

You probably read the news about the free Syberia game for 48 hours. It looks like the Native Mac version has been removed of Syberia 2. So I added the Syberia 2 port to Porting Kit! The game is also available in Crossover with a Crosstie.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet or Crossover.
2. Then buy/download the GOG.com setup file from Syberia 2 from GOG into your download folder.
3. Then when you own Crossover use this CrossTie or when you use Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Game description:
An unlikely pair, young Kate Walker and old, eccentric Hans Voralberg now set off on a journey together, in search of the last of the fabled Syberian mammoths at the heart of a long-forgotten universe. The surreal quest Hans began alone several years ago will come to a final close as he and Kate face obstacles far more dangerous than ever before, testing their courage and determination. Far and beyond, a mystical Syberia awaits their arrival.

Still Life for Mac

Also here counts that the Mac version of Still Life on GOG.com is not Compatible with 10.3x High Sierra. So I created a Mac port for the game in Porting Kit as well. Now you can still play the game using Porting Kit using the GOG.com Windows setup files in 10.13 High Sierra. Remember that you need to download the WINDOWS setup files and NOT the “Mac” dmg file, because that Mac version won’t work in High Sierra. So you love the game and want to play it in High Sierra? Then download the Windows setup files into your download folder and install the game into Porting Kit. Enjoy!

Game description:
The producers of Syberia I and Syberia II are proud to present Still Life. Victoria McPherson, is a brilliant young FBI agent who’s investigating a serial murder case. The body count is now at five and with the lack of real leads and a moutain of circumstantial evidence, Victoria is beginning to show signs of fatigue and stress. She decides to take a break and go rest at her father’s home in suburban Chicago; after all, it is close to the Christmas holidays. However, Victoria does not find rest.

Blade Runner for Mac

Great news! Blade Runner (DVD version) is added to Porting Kit! The DVD version works out of the box, and works great! Played for a while and tested also saving and loading games. Really recommended if you love detective adventures and a good story. If you love detective games like Blade runner, then you may also like: Tex Murphy – Under a Killing Moon or Tex Murphy Mean Streets + Martian Memorandum (both native Mac). Have fun with this one!!

This is an incredible game that submerses you into the storyline like no other. It is based on the 1980 movie and has a lot of the characters from it but follows an original storyline. The controls are intuitive and are very easy to learn. The story has several endings depending on the decisions that you make.
