GOG adds Mac support, kicks off with 50 games

While Good Old Games (GOG) may be playing catch-up with other gaming services like Steam, its still one of the best DRM-free digital game distributors around. Today the service officially launched support for Mac, and are offering 50 games right out of the gate that Mac users can enjoy right away.

The list of 50 Mac games that GOG released includes some great titles like Syndicate, The Witcher 2, Machinarium, and Dungeon Keeper. Plus, the service is holding a special sale to celebrate the occasion, where they're offering six games that are 50% off and cost just $2.99 each. These include The Witcher Enhanced Edition, Crusader: No Remorse, Theme Hospital, Little Big Adventure, Postal Classic, Uncut, and Simcity 2000.

Just like Mac games on Steam, GOG games work between both Windows and Mac -- no need to buy separate copies for separate operating systems. The service even has a native OS X downloader app that you can use to download GOG games onto your Mac. They've made the process easy and simple for both Mac and Windows users.

If you're on a budget, GOG has got you covered as well. They're offering eight Mac games for free, specifically for testing out their new Mac service. These include Beneath a Steel Sky, Tyrian 2000, Ultima 4 and Warsaw. Also be sure to check out the company's Apple parody video above where they announce the "GOGbook," and check out GOG's complete list of Mac-compatible games.
