Good Old Games adds OS X support, brings classics back
Classic game seller <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/270975==http://www.gog.com/catalogue/?system=osx" rel='nofollow'>Good Old Games</a> has added a selection of OS X titles to the service, highlighted by the current title <em>The Witcher 2</em>. Both free and paid titles are available, with a total of 51 games -- mostly old DOS-based classics from the 80s and 90s -- ready for purchase. All games have been released with no digital rights management, allowing for maximum user flexibility in installations.<br><br>The games are a mix of custom DOSBox wrappers, and native code. Newer titles like <em>FTL</em>, <em>Spacechem</em>, and the aforementioned <em>Witcher 2</em> share space with some 8-bit titles -- nearly the entire <em>Ultima</em> series, <em>StarFlight</em> 1 and 2, and <em>SimCity 2000</em>. Eight titles are available for free, including <em>Ultima IV</em> and <em>Beneath a Steel Sky</em>.

GOG.com representatives have announced support for OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard and greater on Intel-based Macs. System specifications vary per title. WINE support for other titles in the GOG library is being investigated.
