"Inside" has a Mac version?!?

28 July 2020 - 02:23 PM

You might know "Limbo", that stylish black and white platformer where you control a lone child through some brutal, creepy level, which has been available for the Mac for several years already.

You might also have heard of its successor "Inside", a stylish mostly gray-scale platformer where you control a lone child through some brutal, creepy level, which has been released on pretty much every platform a few years ago. Except for the Mac.

Until recently, as it seems. The game is available on the Mac App Store. :blink:

Borderlands – The Movie?!

29 May 2020 - 10:20 AM

If you haven't heard it already, Borderlands is going to be turned into a movie. :blink:

With Eli Roth as director, the guy who wrote "Chernobyl" as writer, and Cate Blanchett as Lilith…

Remember MicroProse?

05 May 2020 - 01:18 PM

They are officially back, with a heavy focus on military strategy/simulation games. Apparently, even original MicroProse founder Bill Stealy is on board.

One of the announced games is Sea Power, from the designer of Cold Water, which was touted as spiritual successor to Red Storm Rising – one of 1980's MicroProse's best games. So it all comes back…

Cosmic Frontier Override (Escape Velocity Override)

24 April 2020 - 11:13 AM

The original scenario designer for EV: Override pitched a remake of the game on Kickstarter as Cosmic Frontier: Override. (The name change was necessary because Matt Burch, who holds the copyright, is not on board – he is supportive of the project, though.)

The game will be moddable and the game engine will be released as open source after release.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 Beta for Mac available

09 December 2019 - 01:37 PM

The one launcher to rule all launchers, GOG Galaxy 2.0 is now available as open beta, also for Mac.

Despite having to show literally hundreds of games in my library (I connected it to all my other accounts - PSN, Steam, Origin, Uplay, Epic), it's running better than Steam ever did. You can easily install every game that is available for your current platform: if it requires a different launcher which you haven't installed yet, you get redirected to the corresponding download page first.

Not everything works yet, though. I can't seem to get the friend lists of other platforms than GOG itself to work (but maybe I'm just missing something), some stats don't sync properly, and GOG seems to be confused which Steam games are Mac compatible (showing me for instance Borderlands Enhanced as supported under macOS, but not The Bard's Tale IV).
