Unto the End for Mac

Released not long ago and now added to Porting Kit: Unto the End for Mac! I tested the game with the keyboard controls and that’s working fine. The game is really a “figuring out” style, I got stuck not far into the game, but figured out I had to hit some bones to go underground eventually and then finding someone with a key which you can use to open up a door at the other end of the cave. Well, if you like puzzles, action, platform and adventure, then this game might be something for you :) Game Works great on Intel based Macs, on M1 Silicon it give some glitches but still playable (hope this will be soon fixed in newer engine).

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.

We always recommend having besides Porting Kit also Crossover as alternative. Crossover is more advanced, supports DX11 and has phone support other features. Crossover makes Porting Kit possible and when purchasing Crossover using the links here you support us with out work with Porting Kit. Get it here…
