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…

The Marvelous Miss Take released for Mac!

The Marvelous Miss Take, a fast-paced comedic heist game with an engaging story, challenging you to think and act quick is available for  Mac, DRM-free on GOG.com!  The game is in my humble opinion overpriced with the over $20 price-tag, but the game looks quite nice. Perhaps something for on your wishlist and get it on promo moment for the ones who can wait. Check out the trailer below for some game-play and an impression of the game. Have fun!

The Marvelous Miss Take turns the stealth genre on its head by using organised chaos to keep players on their toes. Successfully pilfering portraits isn’t as easy as it may seem: wandering guards decide their patrol routes on the fly, security cameras keep watch over everything and even innocent gallery goers just visiting to admire the art might raise the alarm if they see something suspicious. Only by using quick wits and even quicker reflexes can players hope to grab the loot (that rightfully should be yours, to begin with) and escape unseen – there’s no option for violence and the clock is ticking!

After 12 years Stronghold returns to the deserts of the Middle East circa 1189, with a new 3D engine and realistic castle destruction powered by Havok Physics. Crusader 2 will recapture the original game’s addictive, fast-paced gameplay and authentic castle simulation. Now you can play it on your Mac as well! Tested this game in the Wrapper on my Nvidia 640M and works almost native Windows! When you love my work and don’t own the game yet, buy the game on Gamersgate using the Links in the blogpost. Below a video of some gameplay on my iMac! Thanks and have fun!

Introduction of the Portingkit!

A lot of of things have happened this year, and even though this year has 1.5 months to go, there will be a great new feature….or better said “Application” coming up! This Application is called: “The Portingkit” and is mind-blowing if a may say it myself! This makes hosting wrappers unnecessary anymore, because instead the app will download a small script (WSI files) which will automatically download the specific Wine engine, apply the tweaks and will even contain the specific game related paulthetall.com branded icon! If the game port is a free/demo game, then it will automatically download and install the game in the wrapper as well! A dream app for Mac users! This program will be a mixture of Steam/Crossover with very cool features like ranking and launching from the app itself and much more and much more to come! In the end all the ports I have done will be added in the Portingkit application and no more file hosting will be needed on my end :)

The Portingkit is developed by Vitor Marques (creator of Gamma Studio) on my request and which will closely work together with the Porting Center (also developed by Vitor Marques). The Porting Center is the application where the WSI files are been created for the Portingkit. Not much knowledge is required to create WSI files, so in not to long we can have have a big community who can contribute there own Wrapper ports. There will be also a separate website for the Portingkit (not live yet) hosted by me where the program is hosted and maintained. We hope to release the first Beta and more info in the coming weeks! So stay tuned!!

Treasure Adventure World (Demo) for Mac!

For the fans of the free Treasure Adventure Game I have some good news. As you may know Robit Studios is working on a remake of the game which is available now for Pre-order. There is also a demo of the game available to see the new revamped look and game-play. Because I have some contact with the game maker (Stephen Orlando) who was the first follower of my new Twitter account I created yesterday, I created a game port for the demo of the new Treasure Adventure Word game!

So when you liked the old one and interested for the new one, and have a Mac, then this demo port might be very useful to check out this new game. The game runs pretty well on my Intel HD 4000 Macbook air, so should work even better on higher end Macs. Simply download the Wrapper below, and extract and play! Have fun!
