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.

Syberia 2 for Mac

 

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.

Evil Genius added to Porting Kit

The GOG.com Mac version of Evil Genius  doesn’t work in 10.13x High Sierra. So I created a Mac port for the game in Porting Kit . 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:
Everybody wants to rule the world! Achieve global power with Evil Genius, the one and only complete world domination simulator. All the everyday tasks of the deliciously wicked mastermind are available to experience and master from building your ultra-secret base to developing spectacular super-weapons to carry out your nefarious master plan.

I transformed the Evil Genius game page back to the ported version up here…

 

Dragon Age Origin for Mac

Yes, it’s finally here: Dragon Age Origin for Mac. On many request we have the game finally ported to Mac using Porting Kit or Crossover. The game is massive over 45 GB and is not recommended to play on low-end macs with Intel HD GFX cards but minimum with Intel Iris GFX cards or Nvidia or AMD Radeon with at least 512MB Graphical Memory. Because Dragon Age Origin is a massive game, the installation can take up 45 minutes depending on your system and if you have SSD or HDD in your Mac. I played the game for a bit on my Intel Iris iMac and there it runs very well in all low video settings. I am still optimizing the game, so there might be an update of the port in the near future. If so I let you know on the blog.

Game description:
You are a Grey Warden, one of the last of this legendary order of guardians. With the return of mankind’s ancient foe and the kingdom engulfed in civil war, you have been chosen by fate to unite the shattered lands and slay the archdemon once and for all. Explore a stunning world, make complex moral choices, and engage in bone-crushing combat against massive and terrifying creatures.

Might and Magic 7 for Mac

Now we are adding existing wrappers to Porting Kit anyways, I also added Might and Magic VII – For Blood and Honor to the Porting Kit. If you own Crossover run the Crosstie here… to install it on your Mac.

Game description:
To experience great adventures, you’ll have to take a step back in time. Might and Magic VII – For Blood and Honor brings back the fantasy role-playing genre with an enhanced game engine and thrilling gameplay. It brings to life a fantasy world replete with fearsome dragons, horrifying monsters and exotic races. This game has everything the experienced role-player desires, including new character classes, skills, spells, magic items and a compelling story that will keep you absorbed for hours on end.
