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.

Update the app by “check for updates” using the porting kit menu in top bar menu. Sorry for the inconvenience!

News about High Sierra Compatible Wineskin ports GOG.com.

News about High Sierra Compatible Wineskin ports GOG.com.

As promised, more news about the High Sierra non-compatible Wineskin ports on GOG.com. I received the good news from GOG, that they will update their game ports (about 25+ games) which are at the moment not compatible for High Sierra. The “initial-tentative-don’t-hold-us-to-it ETA” could be before end of the month :) I added before the news was out already 9 High Sierra+ compatible game ports into Porting Kit, so you can play those games in High Sierra. The games are: Nox, Mob Rule Classic, Space Colony HD, Shell Shock 2Icewind Dale 2 Complete, Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition, The Temple of Elemental Evil, and Lords of Realms 1 + 2. The Porting Kit ports will still be available if you want to use it instead of the Mac ports of GOG.com and ready for the near future.

Yes near future, because the GOG.com update will hold the dam for Wineskin only for a while, because when 10.14 arrives all apps needs to be 64bit and wineskin will be most likely at its end because development stopped ages ago. However! There is good news from us. We are building a new Wineskin like app which we will call “Prism” which will have a total new framework and 64bit and adapted to Porting Kit, loads of new and cool features and of course free for personal use :)
