I bought a mac... but wait! What am I going to play now?

Post by Syd » Sat Jan 29, 2005 7:45 pm

So it has come to this: my windows crashed at exactly the wrong moment, sending me into a never before seen fury. When I woke up some fifteen minutes later, my computer and everything in the surrounding area was wrecked.

Or, that was what I hoped would happen. Instead, I cursed myself for not having a good enough computer, went to the nearest Macintosh retailer and bought a iMac G5.

So my question to anyone who knows and feels like answering: Is it possible to somehow play Slay on my Mac? Does it work on Virtual PC? Or do I have to wait until Sean releases "Sean O'Connor's Mac Games"?

I've been given an old iMac from a friend so I can take a look at doing Slay for Macs but I've not found time just yet to make a start on it. I'll ask him if it plays on Mac emulators and get back to you...

I ran slay initally from a linux machine, using the Wine "emulator" for windows programs. Seemed to run fine. Mac would be a little different as you are using a completely different processor architechture.

That said, I'll be first in line if you release mac versions - I'd love to be able to play these games on the move using my powerbook.
