Help will come Tomorrow for Mac

We added Help Will Come Tomorrow for Mac to Porting Kit! Immerse yourself in touching story set in 1917 pre – Bolschevik Imperial Russia. The basic mechanics of the game will focus on the survival of the characters (meeting their needs, gathering resources, expanding the camp, taking care of security, exploring surroundings), but the player will quickly find out that in order to win, he needs much more: to learn the personality of the characters and work out relations between them, mitigating conflicts and taking care of the morale.

I tested this game on as well on M1 Apple Silicon as on my Macbook pro 2019 and works perfectly on both systems. Have fun!

Metro 2033 Redux for Mac

We added not long ago Metro Last Light Redux, now we added Metro 2033 Redux for Mac as well :) This game port works quite well on medium/high-end Macs. I tested the game on my Macbook Pro 2019 and it works similar as Metro Last Light Redux.  When you launch the game the first time after install, it may be a bit “sluggish” and mouse pointer might be stuck, but after adjusting the video resolution (using cursor keys) the mouse issue will be solved from then on (also next launches) and it will be much smoother. When you have a medium end Mac you should lower the settings to have the best user experience.

1. Download the Metro 2033 Redux offline backup setup file(s) into your download folder.
2. Always read the notes of the game description first for additional steps!

King of Dragon Pass is a game like no other. It combines strategy, adventure, RPG, and civilization sim, but it focuses mostly on storytelling. Each turn the game offers you with a choice to make and the progress of the story depends solely on your decisions. The difference between right and wrong is seldom obvious, but whatever action you take, be ready to face its consequences later. There are virtually limitless ways the story can unfold, so each play-through—whether it’s a quick game or an extended campaign—promises new adventures and plot twists!
