Mac News and More!
Finally! We’ve got some great news for Mac folks! We’re going to have Mac versions of all* of the Anniversary Collection! We’ve teamed up with some really amazing people at Codeweavers who specialize in this sort of thing (and are also Myst fans), and they’ve been able to make macOS versions of all the games* from the Windows versions — no additional emulation software is required.
* There are a few caveats, so keep reading…
First Caveat: Myst: Masterpiece Edition is giving us trouble. We’re working on it, but we’re not sure about it. Soooo… we’ll be converting the original Myst to fill that hole.
Second Caveat: The Mac versions will likely be digital downloads only. As much as we’d love to include them on the discs, because of the timing of the conversions, and the evolving MacOS platform, we can only promise digital downloads at this time. If you sign up for the Bookmaker tier or higher you will still receive discs, but our plan at this time is that they will contain the Windows versions.
Third Caveat: Flux. Any of this could change - for the better or for the worse. Because there is testing going on right now, we want you to be aware that there is a little room for some wiggle, but we’re obviously feeling very secure about the Mac versions.
Hey, let’s try one of these Kickstarter Live things. Rand can make it on Thursday at 11:00am PDT (6:00pm UTC). How does that look for you? Great! It’s a date.
And while we were busy with everything around here, we managed to pass the 1.5 million dollar mark! That is amazing! We’re looking forward to hitting the 10,000 backer mark soon, too! So exciting!
Thanks so much!
