Welcome to the Downwell for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Downwell in a few very simple steps (which even a noob can understand) so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application.

I recommend to buy the GOG.com version which is DRM free and works straight away out of the box. Click on the links mentioned here, create an account using the signup in the top bar on the GOG.com website and buy the game. You automatically get when creating an account 15 free GOG games (+ some dlc’s) added to your account so you have nothing to loose, only to receive!
Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Downwell from GOG.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install. Or click install on the Porting Kit page.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer (don’t click “play”).
5. Click “Play” in Porting Kit to start the game! Have fun!
Downwell is a curious game about a young person venturing down a well in search of untold treasures with only his Gunboots for protection. Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks. Step into precariously placed shops and buy some helpful items or level up between levels to battle well-dwelling monsters and uncover hidden caves filled with riches and relics. No two trips down the well are ever the same!
