Welcome to the Gothic Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Gothic so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using Crossover. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. Or use the Porting Kit alternative.
If you don’t own the game yet, get Gothic from GOG.com which is DRM free there and runs 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 14 free GOG games (+ some dlc’s) added to your account so you have nothing to loose, only to receive! Make sure the setup file is downloaded into your download folder before running the Crosstie, so that Crossover recognizes the file and launches the setup automatically.
Important: Change in the in-game settings –> keyboard –> the action key to a letter of your choice, for example the “c”. Because when using ctrl + arrow up (to pick things up) the screen will change, and that you need to avoid.
Gothic 1 is still among the best rpgs around, even though it is getting rather dated. However unlike other older rpgs, Gothic 1’s advanced age is not as apparent, as it was one of earliest games made with the same style that many modern rpgs still follow. This includes: Fully voiced characters, open world design, non-linear story, and much more. Definitely worth a try.
