Heroes Chronicles for Mac

Today I can finally introduce Heroes Chronicles: All Chapters to you friends!

Get the game from GOG.com and install it in the Wrapper mentioned below following this instructions:

Download and extract Wrapper below –> download Heroes Chronicles: All Chapters from GOG.com –> double-click wrapper –> install windows software –> navigate to GOG.com setup file and double-click on it –> install wizard will appear –> install the game –> at the end select which of the 8 chapters you want to set to play and click “Exit”.

Eight titles featuring the gameplay you know and love from Heroes of Might and Magic III. Eight chapters that tell the story of Tarnum, a barbarian hero and liberator of his kinsmen. After generations of oppression, Tarnum discovers his people’s true history and leads an army of Stronghold troops against their tyrannical masters. Marching from the arid roughlands of his homeland and the muggy swamps of the lowlands, he follows and even surpasses the deeds of his legendary ancestor, who defeated the spellcasting oppressors long ago. This great pack of all eight Heroes Chronicles chapters will allow you to spend hours adventuring on the continent of Antagarich.

The Guild 2 Wrapper update!

Because I received a couple of requests to look into the Guild 2 Wrapper, I managed to fix a couple of things when updating it. First I added directplay support, which normally should give multiplayer functionality in combination with hamachi. When trying, make sure firewall is turned off otherwise you cannot see or join a multiplayer game (multiplayer is not tested by functionality is there now). Second, I fixed a mouse bug, which regularly moved the person somewhere else then you clicked. Last but not least it fixes a couple of graphical glitches + a slight performance improvement. Have fun!

Changes:
– Mouse bug fix
– Slight performance improvement
– Small graphical glitch fixes.
– Directplay support included.
– New Icon

Space Run released for Mac!

Space Run is a «real-time spaceship construction strategy game». Space Run takes the well-known Tower Defense-style gameplay and twists it, challenging you to manage and protect a spaceship and its cargo against the hazards of deep space! You can get the game from GOG.com with 25% off the first week. Watch the trailer below for some game-play. Enjoy!

Space can be a dangerous place. You’re one of the most daring «Space Transporters», people who carry the dangerous task of transporting valuable shipments from one place to another across hazardous space. This supposedly simple task gets tricky once you add dense asteroid fields that regularly cross the space lanes, the armed-to-the-teeth pirate starfighters and spaceships all too willing to shred your ship for your cargo, as well as the other Space Transporters you are competing against!

Space Pirates and Zombies released for Mac

 Space Pirates and Zombies is a great top-down space shooter that uses newtonian physics. Although the story and gameplay isn’t as good and addicting as Ring Runner or quirky as Operation Inner Space, it has it’s own mechanics that carry it. Play how you want to play. Be the good guy and try to keep the balance and make friends. Be the bad guy, blow every base up and kick down every gate to get through the galaxy. However some of these choices come back to you haunt you in the last portion of the game when you have to build up the defenses against the growing enemy threat. Below the GOG.com trailer of the game do you can see some game play.

At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. It’s similar to the ones we knew and loved in years past, but now using full physics simulation and modern graphics for those oh so pretty explosions. But as you dig deeper, SPAZ becomes much more.
