Kinetic Void released for Mac

Kinetic Void is a 3D space adventure with a focus on customization and exploration. The shipyard allows players to construct their ship piece by piece. Ships can be as simplistic as a cockpit, a hull, a engine and a gun, or as complex as a player wants. Each module has available subsystems which can be applied to strengthen specific attributes of the ship, and when damaged, those subsystems may be destroyed. While in space flight, interactions between objects are governed by the physics engine. This Mac game is available on Gamersgate and now with a 20% discount for the first week. Check out the trailer below to get introduced by the game.

In Kinetic Void the galaxy is a living, breathing thing. Not all factions get along, not all of them hate each other. As factions interact, agreements and treaties will be made and broken. Trade, combat and piracy will affect how the factions see each other based on their own internal standings.

King of Dragon Pass for Mac!

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!

The game has only one small bug, which is that you cannot load in-game another game. To do so, you need to go to the game menu and choose “Restore game” which will work just fine. I also made the game windowed because this old game has a resolution of 800×600 and otherwise the rest of the screen would be black. Making it windowed it gives also opportunity to do other things while gaming.

Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the Wrapper below and extract the file and double-click the wrapper–> get and download King of Dragon Pass on GOG.com –> install windows software –> navigate to the gog.com installer file and double-click it –> Installing the game into the Wrapper and at the end of installation click “exit”. Now double-click the wrapper and play!  For more info about porting go up here…
