GDC Relief Bundle. 168 (!) games for 'pay what you like'! A couple of Mac games among them, although most of them are Windows only. I don't recognize a lot of them, so it is indie galore it seems.

I clicked on a few in the low tier. In that random sample all of them were short games, mostly created for one game jam or another.

Looking at the $10 tier: Stellar Commanders looks pretty cool, but it's Windows only. Or is it?!  Now THIS is interesting: "The game is available for Mac on Apple Arcade exclusively." I thought Apple Arcade had some kind of exclusivity clause?!
Airheart looks fun, I might get the bundle just to support them and try it.

I'm not curious enough to try lots of these, but more power to them.. My dad (who is very well read) has recently taken up reading self-published $0-$2 SF books on kindle. He doesn't mind that many of them aren't very good, he is enjoying discovering the gems among them and the freshness of not knowing what to expect from each book. But he has more free time than I do!

Apple does have an exclusivity clause for Apple Arcade—for the macOS versions, only.



EDIT: Clicking through some of those GDC bundle games is worth it because a couple I've checked so far are 100% off.

Interesting. Since I'm interested in that particular game I'll redeem the steam key; maybe the Mac version will show up at a later date.

Off in what sense? The descriptions are wrong?

I guess I'm not surprised. I noticed that one I clicked on was playable right there in the browser. I didn't notice others, but game jam entries are usually freeware, unless the developer keeps working on it.

I'm currently planning on playing the Mortician one and Airheart, and maybe Stellar Commanders if the Mac version gets to Steam one day.

Note the price is variable depending on how many games you already have. For instance I had most of them already, so it only costs me €2.9 (for some older games and a few useless DLCs).

Since it comes with is King's Cross: purchased.

My son would have LOVED having a train simulator when he was little. Though based on how he played with flight simulators, he'd spend a fair amount of time trying to crash the train.
