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:

Deus Ex – Human Revolution for Mac Catalina/Big Sur and up!

We added another awesome title to Porting Kit which was native released for Mac on Mojave and below,  but couldn’t be played on Catalina and Big Sur: Deus Ex – Human Revolution DC  Well we made a port for it so you can play it again on the latest Mac OS  versions :) I played/tested the game on my high-end AMD radeon Macbook pro 2019 and works pretty well. I can imagine that this heavy game may have some performance issues on low-end macs, so I advice a medium to high-end Mac to play the game for best game experience. If you have Porting Kit open already for a while, please restart Porting Kit or refresh the database to see the game in the list with the “new badge”.
