Legend of Grimrock 2 for Mac!

Legend of Grimrock 2 is a dungeon crawling role playing game with a modern execution but an oldschool heart. A group of four prisoners have shipwrecked on the secluded Isle of Nex. The island is filled with ancient crumbled ruins, mysterious shrines and a vast underground network of dungeons and mines. If the prisoners wish to make it out alive, they have to overcome the challenges devised by the ominous mastermind of the island. The game is available on GOG.com and works perfectly on my Nvidia iMac.

Powers of perception and logic are more important than sheer force is, since Legend of Grimrock 2 puts a heavy emphasis on exploration, survival and challenging puzzles. Discover powerful ancient artifacts from hidden secret chambers and buried treasures. Arm your champions, cast spells and craft enchanted potions and bombs to aid you in fighting the dreadful monsters in highly tactical real-time combat.

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.

AKALABETH- WORLD OF DOOM

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.

Sacred Tears TRUE for Mac!

From the creaters of the very popular game Yume Nikki, this game hits the stores now! Sacred Tears TRUE brings both traditional JRPG elements and fresh and unique features such as a deceptively simple but deep card battle system, redistributable skill points, and graphics by Takashi KONNO (Shichinin no Bukiya) and music by Hiroyuki Ojima (Accel World, When They Cry anime) and Shimotsuki Haruka (Atelier Iris, Ace Attorney Orchestral Performance). Seil and his childhood friend Seana are neophyte thieves in the Thieves Guild of Genoseed City. By day they operate a private investigator agency, and by night they undertake Thieves Guild missions across the city. Sacred Tears TRUE is the story of these young thieves and their pursuit of dreams and adventure. This game works very nice on my one hour tests on my Nvidia 640M iMac. In the video below you can see the visual instructions + a little bit of game-play.

Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the Steambuild1 Wrapper below and extract the file and launch the Steam Wrapper –> login into the Windows Steam –> activate the serial you got from Gamersgate and download the game –>  then click play! For more info about porting go up here…

Note: The game itself works awesome, however, when playing fullscreen there is a bit of screen-tearing, so if this annoys you, then play windowed, and there will be no problems at all in my tests.
