Banished for the Mac! (Update)

Update: Its seemed that the Wrapper worked fine on Nvidia but not on AMD Radeon and Intel Graphics Macs. Fixed that part now with the latest wrapper update of Banished! Works now on Intel Graphics, AMD Radeon and Nvidia! Enjoy!!

On request and just out for 2 days: Banished! Build a city with any layout you want with almost no restriction on when, what, and where you build. Keep the population happy and healthy by providing them with food and warm shelter. Watch the town grow as you assign 20 different jobs to build buildings, grow food, craft tools and clothing, and more! The game doesn’t work in Crossover yet so I made Wrapper for it. Crossover will stay primary on the site, but that doesn’t mean I won’t make any Wrappers now and then :). I won’t make for each game a new video anymore, only when some specific instructions are needed. Normally its just very basic: extract –> install game into wrapper –> set the start executable and play! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Banished on GOG.com which is DRM free. Check out the trailer below to get introduced to the game!

Banished is a city building game where you control a group of exiled people who are restarting their lives in the wilderness. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland. The townspeople work, build, get older, have children, and eventually die. Keeping them healthy, happy, and fed are essential to making a successful town grow. Any structure can be built at any time, provided that your people have collected the resources to do so.

STALKER: Call of Pripyat for the Mac

For today I have a very popular game as a surprise: STALKER: Call of Pripyat! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy STALKER: Call of Pripyat on GOG.com which is DRM free. The Gamersgate version of the game contains TAGES DRM which will fail to start. The game works quite nice on 512mb GFX card altough the game works in Directx9 mode only (still great graphics of course) because Directx 11 isn’t working in Wine yet. I created a CrossTie for the GOG.com version and works quite nice using Crossover! I rated the game “Silver” for now because of the Directx 11 and the game will be quite slow if you have all graphics settings on high. I played the game for about an hour on medium settings and high resolution and that worked fine for me. Check out the PC trailer below to get introduced to the game.

The events of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat unfold shortly after the end of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. Having discovered about the open path to the Zone center, the government decides to hold a large-scale military “Fairway” operation aimed to take the CNPP under control

Doomdark’s Revenge released for the Mac!

Today another Mac game is released on GOG.com. Doomdark’s Revenge is a revamped version of the 1985 game, retaining its gameplay and graphical style, just adding some more intuitive interface and high resolution graphics. At its core, however, this is the exact same title that enthralled the imagination of many gamers almost three decades ago. The turn based game mixes elements of an adventure with a robust, well-written storyline, an epic wargame in which you manage and command large armies, and a role-playing game with much focus on exploration of the game’s incredibly detailed landscape. You already slew the evil Witchking Doomdark, now you’re up against his wicked daughter, Shareth, the Witchqueen of Carnage. This is no easy task, as the sequel introduces a whole new level of independence to the NPCs whose help you need to complete it, and beating the game in any of the possible ways will prove quite a challenge. Let one of the oldest, yet greatest stories ever told in a computer game unfold before you!

Because of it’s outdated graphics, I won’t create a seperate game page of this one, but it is still worth making a blogpost of it. This way the people who do love this kind of games, know it is there and can get it from GOG.com. Check the trailer below for the gameplay of old times.

Eschalon: Book III released for the Mac!

Last Friday there was another game released for the Mac on GOG.com! Eschalon: Book III brings the trilogy to a climactic end as you seek to uncover the mystery of your past, the secrets of the Crux stones, and who the Orakur really are. You’ll traverse miles of virtual wilderness and dungeons, filled with secrets and danger, in an unparalleled role-playing experience designed to feel like a true pen-and-paper RPG. Eschalon: Book III is now available for Mac on GOG.com so if you love fantasy RPG games, then this one might be worthy to check out.

Book III is not a dumbed-down “RPG for the masses”. Rapid button clicking won’t save you here. Eschalon pays honor to the greatest RPGs of the past, with unlimited character development options and freedom to explore the world as you wish. The difficulty of the game does not scale to your character.
