How the frack do I install anything without GOG Galaxy? It keeps failing on me and it doesn't appear that I can install via the website anymore! I'm glad I didn't invest in many games from them!

EDIT: Okay, figured it out. Go to your Account and for each game you can choose to download the offline installer.

Angry angry! :cool:

Yeah it's complete ass isn't it? Even Blizzard's Battle.net app screws up patches for me (requiring various voodoo cache deletions and incantations to get it working properly). Installation is hard it seems!

Humble Bundle has Lego The Hobbit free "while supplies last".

(That title sounds like something Gandalf would yell to tell the trolls to drop Bilbo.)

Humble is now giving away free copies of Lego Lord of the Rings.

UPDATE: Sorry-- saw it appear in my Steam library but didn't notice that there wasn't an install button for Mac. It's Windows only.

I like having this thread dedicated to free Mac games. I just didn't notice that Lego LotR was Windows-only. My bad. I've added a comment to my post.

No worries, it isn't the first Windows game in the thread. And most people seem to be Bootcamp gamers here too (I sometimes feel like the only one who is not), so I think people will be fine about it.

Sometimes a Mac version comes later then it usually appears in your Steam Mac library thanks to Steamplay.

Or at the very least, fart in their general direction.

(Not a BootCamp user here either btw. I had it back in the day for the occasional Skyrim session, but the constant stream of Windows updates became boring.)

And now with link. Apparently Epic Game store will be giving out a free game every 2 weeks, with Super Meat Boy being next from the 28th. I guess we have to keep an eye out on them in the future.

Subnautica was actually one of the games on my Steam wishlist when I deleted the wishlist the other day, so that's really good timing.

Except, Epic's game launcher requires OS X 10.12 and I'm stuck on OS X 10.11. EXACTLY THE KIND OF DRM-RELATED CRAP THAT I DELETED MY STEAM WISHLIST OVER.  

For some games, it seems like the best you can do is try and guess which DRM will be supported for your machine for the longest. :ranting:

Ric Molina (www.MacGamerHQ.com) wrote in a recent email to his subscribers that "it doesn't matter the Mac version [of Super Meat Boy] is not supported there yet, it will soon". I don't know what his source was, but probably someone at Epic.
