Akalabeth: World of Doom released freely for Mac

GOG.com released Akalabeth: World of Doom for the Mac today free of charge! It’s a gift of the original producer Richard Garriot. This game was firstly released in 1980, and yes, the images are certainly supporting that :P. However, this game brings a lot of nostalgia for many people. Besides that it is free! Many people will recognize the old game-play using the keyboard only typing “n” for north, “w” for west etc and see where you will end. Enjoy this old gem!

‘Tis said that long ago peace and tranquility covered the lands. Food and drink flowed freely, man and beast lived in peace, gold and silver abounded – it was the Golden Age of Akalabeth. There arose from the land a man, pure and just, to battle the Dark Lord. British, Champion of the White Light, did battle with Mondain deep within the labyrinth of dungeons, eventually driving him from Akalabeth forever. British of the White Light was proclaimed Lord British, Protector of Akalabeth. Alas, much damage had been suffered unto the lands. The Revival of Akalabest has begun.

Realms of Arkania 3 – Shadows over Riva Classic released for Mac!

I bought Realms of Arkania 3 on Gamersgate (steam serial) today (for $0,80 was 80% off) to port it to the Mac. However it seemed that Gamersgate forgot to mention on the site that the game was already released for Mac on Steam and also on GOG.com as well. It was quite obvious because it is a DOSbox game. Anyway, the steam serial can be added to your Mac Steam account and tehn it is a matter of download and play ;) I always recommend the GOG.com game above the Steam game because the GOG.com version is not “game-client depended”. For the fans, enjoy the game on your Mac!

Something sinister lurks in the seaside town of Riva. An evil force has subverted the city’s leaders, and evil things lurk in the town’s sewers. Explore the huge city, dungeons and even underwater regions in stunningly detailed 3D. Adjustable difficulty levels make the game as simple or as detailed as you like.

Dungeon of the Endless released for the Mac!

Another new game has been released for the Mac! This time a game called: Dungeon of the Endless! A few hundred condemned criminals were being shipped to the Auriga system on board the prison hulk “Success”. While this was presented as a chance to earn back their place in society by working hard for the common good, they understood that in fact they would be slave labour, sent to colonize an unexplored planet. All they knew about Auriga Prime was what the probes told them: it had water, temperate zones, plant life, and plenty of metals in the crust. Check out the trailer below for some visuals of the game.

Every set of holding cells also functioned as an escape pod, so the ship let itself disintegrate and the surviving prisoners fell bruised but (temporarily) alive and (momentarily) safe to the planet below. Safe, that is, until they realized that they had crashed through some sort of facility of the Endless, down to a sub-basement so deep and ancient it might as well be called a dungeon…
