Windsward released for Mac!

You like Pirate games? Then this game might be soemthing for you. This game reminds me a bit to a mixture of Pirates of Black Cove and Port Royal. Check out the trailer below for some visuals.

Designed from the start to be a fully procedural co-op game, Windward can be played by yourself, but it truly comes alive when playing with friends. Start by generating a procedural world that will be unique to you, design your own custom faction, then sail forth fighting pirates, trading with towns, doing quests or simply exploring -- it's up to you how you want to play. Exploring Windward and vanquishing enemies will reward you and your friends with plenty of booty that can be used to upgrade your ships or obtain new ones as well as experience that can be spent unlocking new talents, abilities and eventually even combat specializations.

  • Action-filled sandbox game designed from the ground up for co-op gameplay to play with your friends, Windward is set in a large procedurally generated world.
  • Play together with your friends on your own private server or join others online as you fight through hordes of pirates or become one yourself!

Her Story released for Mac!

Her Story is the new video game from Sam Barlow, creator of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle. A crime fiction game with non-linear storytelling, Her Story revolves around a police database full of live action video footage. It stars Viva Seifert, actress and one half of the band Joe Gideon and the Shark.

How does it work?Her Story sits you in front of a mothballed desktop computer that’s logged into a police database of video footage. The footage covers seven interviews from 1994 in which a British woman is interviewed about her missing husband. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips where she speaks those words and piece together her story.

Mass Effect added into Portingkit + Crosstie!

Mass Effect has 2 versions. One: The not working Origin version (because of the malfunctional Origin in Wine) and the Working Steam version for which this port is created. So make sure you have the good version when try to run it in Crossover and the Portingkit. I tested the game for a while and works quite well on my Nvidia 640M 512mb GFX  iMac.

I made the port available as Crosstie and for the Portingkit. So for the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here... and to learn more about Crossover go here...

Thrillville: Off the Rails for the Mac!

Some great news! As you may know Thrillville: Off the Rails is been re-released a little while back, and I finally got my fingers on the Gamersgate (=steam version) of the game and managed to get it working quite easily.  Thrillville: Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: “WHOA!” But the new fun doesn’t stop there. Off the Rails features 34 playable multiplayer minigames, 15 all-new theme areas, over 40 thrill rides, a new story that ties together more than 100 missions, and social interaction with park guests that’s better than ever.
