Mac gamers a-gog as GOG goes Mac

Witcher 2 hits OS X

Boost IT visibility and business value

Online retailer Good Old Games pushes its services onto Mac OS X this week, with a new collection of over 50 titles for the Mac.

As well as a bunch of Bullfrog classics and nostalgia point-and-click epics sure to tempt our Antique Code Show readers, Mac gamers can now snag a copy of CD Projekt's highly-rated role-player The Witcher 2, which also goes on sale through Steam this week.

The Witcher 2

Once you go Mac, you don't look back

Various well-known titles, including Syndicate and Wing Commander are apparently available for the first time ever on a Mac.

Many others have been given a fresh breath of life after previous availability as a Power PC app, a format Apple's latest operating system no longer supports.

GOG says it will provide plenty more Mac offerings going forward, with a number of other classic games already in the pipeline. Keep your eyes peeled on the GOG.com website for further details. ®
