The Mac isn’t the gaming wasteland it once was. While the selection of games available for it is still pretty measly compared to the PC, things are getting better, mostly thanks to Steam. The fine folks at Good Old Games are looking to tap into this underserved market as well, as they just announced that fifty games from their catalog of classic PC games will now be compatible on Mac as well.
You can view the full list here, which includes PC classics like the Tex Murphy series, Dungeon Keeper 1 & 2, the Ultima series, and Populous, as well as comparatively newer releases like Machinarium and The Witcher 2.
As with GOG’s PC downloads, all the Mac games they offer are absolutely DRM free. In addition to that, users with both a PC and a Mac get both versions of the game for one price — as with Steam, if you buy the game on one OS, you get access to it on the other for no additional cost.
In other GOG news, the site is still running a promotion where you can get 8 mostly okay Interplay games for whatever price you want, or the company’s full 32 game library for 35 dollars, which includes games like Fallout, MDK, and Shogo: Mobile Armor Division. It’s not a bad deal considering the amount of games you get, though you might want to do yourself a favor and avoid playing Earthworm Jim 3D at all costs.
