Legionwood Mac Port released!

Attention Mac owners: I’m pleased to announce that Legionwood has now been ported to Mac OS, thanks to the efforts of Jammed Gears Productions, a Youtube based team whose mission is to make indie games more accessible to non-Windows players. I don’t know much (if anything) about Mac systems, so I’m not sure how this port was made possible, but it sure is impressive to see Legionwood running almost flawlessly on a MacBook.

You can grab the port here. You should be able to play the game just by clicking on the “Legionwood.app” file contained within the archive. Please keep in mind, however, that this conversion was developed by an external team, and as such I cannot offer support or updates for any errors you may encounter, though I can pass suggestions on to the creator for possible inclusion in a patch.

Check out the port in action in this Youtube video. Unfortunately it seems that some music tracks have trouble playing on Mac systems, but the game appears to play just fine otherwise, so Mac players can finally catch up on all of the adventures they’ve been missing. As far as I know, retro style RPGs like Legionwood are pretty thin on the ground for Mac, so it’s nice to know there’s now at least one more option available.

About dgrixti

I develop games and I write. I'm studying for a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and I've been published in a number of literary journals all over the world, and my first actual book is being launched in July 2012 by Disposable Fiction. I like writing speculative fiction, horror and literary fiction, sometimes all blended together. You can find elements of my writing in my games, because I consider my games stories that happen to have gameplay.
