Syberia and Syberia 2 port updates and new videos (works also on M1 Apple Silicon Macs)

Great news! Now you have obtained Syberia (or when you are quick to get it now freely!) and Syberia 2, you can play this game on Big Sur and if you have an Apple Silicon Mac, play Syberia and Syberia 2 on that as well! You can find the 2 ports in the Porting Kit game library.

I even made 2 videos about that (Syberia and Syberia 2) playing the games on my M1 Apple Silicon Mac Mini. I like the second video the best myself :) Check them out below:

Syberia and Syberia 2 free for 48 hours!!

Great news! If you like adventure games and you haven’t Syberia and Syberia 2 yet, then get them free within 48 hours on GOG.com!  To obtain the 2 games freely click on the get it button on the home page, then it will be added to your account.

Both games are downloadable native for Mac, but are supported up to Catalina and not supported on Big Sur. Well, looks like we need to make it available for Big Sur and M1 Silicon as well. I made Syberia 1 and Syberia 2 already available for Big Sur now and it’s working fine on my Intel Macbook pro 2019. Both games are also tested and working on my Apple 1 Silicon Mac. The ports are now visible in the Porting Kit database. Enjoy!

My Memory of Us for Mac

On request we added My Memory of Us to the Porting Kit database. This game port of the My Memory of us adventure brings you to events that are touching and horrifying even now. Let’s go back in time. It all began with a meeting between a boy and a girl who came from two different worlds. For a short time they had good laughs together, taking joy simply from each other’s company. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. War broke out – the Evil King plundered the city and his robot-soldiers appeared everywhere. Citizens were separated and some of them were marked and forced to move out of their homes and live in a place that was sealed off from the rest of the city by a huge wall. Fortunately the children were not alone – they had each other. Enjoy this adventure! Tested and works nicely in Big Sur 11.x as well.

Game description:
Myst 5: End of Ages brings the marvelous story presented in the series to a very satisfying and definitive end. This is one of those games where you keep the whole end-credits rolling while you submerge yourself in thoughts of what you have just experienced and how incredible it was. It is even a little sad that this is it but every great story has to have an end and this is clearly the conclusion the series deserved.
