For some time I was thinking of sharing this work online. So here we go.
Basically it is big Numbers.app table with list of games from Feral, Aspyr, MacSoft, MacPlay, Blizzard, Valve, Transgaming, Virtual Programming, Pangea and ohters (indie/inhouse development). Time scope is 2000 - 2015.
Only big games (AAAish) are concidered. Lately it is very difficult to draw the line between big titles and small/indie titles. DLCs are ignored.
I was interested in following:
- First Mac release date (Re-releases and different store version (Steam) are not concidered)
- Original PC release data
- Mac version delay in months
- Platform (PowerPC, Universal Binary, Intel)
- Current state of game digital distribution
- Original developer
- Original publisher
I am not able to share all at once since updating and verification is needed. Please note there can be mistakes and English text is defintely not perfect.

First up our current port champion - Feral Interactive.
