A Story about my Uncle for Mac

Another game has been contributed by Brainzyy: A Story about my Uncle. The game works very nice in Porting Kit and will be added to Crossover soon as well. I am working to make one component to work in Crossover as we speak and when that works the Cross-tie will be available as well.

A Story about my Uncle is a first person platforming adventure game about a boy who searches for his lost uncle, and ends up in a world he couldn’t imagine existed. Take help of your uncle’s mysterious inventions that let you jump incredibly high and far through beautiful scenery, uncover clues to your uncle’s whereabouts, and meet fantastical creatures that will help you on your journey.

Mirror Edge for Mac

Finally it’s there: Mirror Edge! This awesome action game of EA Games, makes you a “Runner” on the skyscrapers of the city. The game works great in both Crossover and Porting Kit. Even on my low-end Macbook air the game works very nice when “In-game physics effects” are turned off in the graphical settings. Have fun!

Mirror Edge™ delivers you straight into the shoes of this unique heroine as she traverses the vertigo-inducing cityscape, engaging in intense combat and fast paced chases. With a never before seen sense of movement and perspective, you will be drawn into Faith’s world. A world that is visceral, immediate, and very dangerous.

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

War Wind II – Human Onslaught for Mac

War Wind II – Human Onslaught is a strategy game as many others on GOG.com. Multi-player makes the game even more interesting. If you like strategy games like Warlords BattleCry 3 (which is also added in Porting Kit and Crossover) then this might be something in your taste.

War Wind II – Human Onslaught offers a great variety of vehicular, mechanised and special units, with intense and exciting maps, and a rich array of options, graphics and sounds, along with a combat model that offers a dynamic balance of play. All this, plus the addition of the human element make War Wind: Human Onslaught a compelling must-play for any real-time strategy fan.

Stardew Valley 1.1 Update!

Stardew Valley, the ridiculously addictive simulation/RPG (which is native for Mac) about the hilarious complications of your simple life in the countryside, has been updated to version 1.1. Apart from an extensive list of bugfixes, it brings plenty of neat additions and balance changes, including:

– Five different farm maps to choose from at the beginning of your adventure, each one catering to a different playstyle
– A “Shed” and a “Mill” building available for construction
– A new quest and several new locations connected to it
– You can now get married to Shane or Emily
– New house upgrade that adds a cellar and teaches you the recipe to “cask” stuff
– You can now make void mayonnaise out of void eggs! Yum!
– You can move your buildings around thanks to Robin’s services
– Several Magical Constructions that provide bonuses and effects

That’s just a small fraction of the entire list of changes, though – if you want to see what else is new, grab yourself a cup of coffee and scroll through the entire changelog. Or better yet, make yourself a full coffee thermos and fire up Stardew Valley 1.1 to check them out first-hand!

Here’s the launch trailer, demonstrating all that Update 1.1 goodness:

Space Quest 1 + 2 + 3 for Mac

Great news, as you may know I already ported Space Quest 4 + 5 + 6, but I am happy to announce the first 3 games as well! Thats’s right: Space Quest 1 + 2 + 3 is added to Porting Kit as on Crossover and works great (all 3 DOS games) as almost all DOS games do in Portingkit and Crossover.  Ow and Linux users can play those games as well using Crossover! Happy gaming with these old GEMS!

A long time ago in a galaxy just around the corner you are the janitor in space. Your mission is to scrub dirty floors, to replace burned-out light bulbs, to clean out latrines… To boldly go where no man has swept the floor.

The Package ncludes Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter, Space Quest II: Vohaul’s Revenge and Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon

Anno 1701 for Mac

Great news and some less good news. Anno 1701 has been ported to Mac! The less good news is, it only works in Crossover for now… Reason is the Hardware check/diagnose, which get passed without issues on Crossover, but causes a black screen freeze in Porting Kit using Wineskin. Vitor is looking for a way to bypass this “check” because this is the only show stopper. Meanwhile the game will be only playable using Crossover at the moment. Maybe a good reason to get Crossover next to Porting Kit.

Anno 1701 is the most elaborate and expensive game production in the German speaking region and the sequel to the most successful, multi-million selling game series of all times. The third part of the unique combination of different genres creates a real-time building game and is also set in 16th and 17th century, the era of discoveries and maritime trade.

Tip: Anno 1701 is now 75% off ($2,89) on GOG.com because of the Back to School sale!!

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.
