Strongbad / Wallace & Gromit / Sam & Max s1 on Mac?

... this is probably the wrong forum, sorry.

But i can't open 3 threads, one for every section :P
Basically, my question is in the title: when can we expect these games on Mac?
Like... at least one series before 2010 ends, Y/N?

Also, i already know Sam & Max season 1 isn't really planned for Mac, sorry, i just wanted to ask again -- the other 2 series should be, though, since you made that Mac poll with ToMI/Strong Bad/Sam & Max/Wallace & Gromit and ToMI won.

  • Basically the mac ports have to be squeezed in between everything else that is going on, but we haven't forgotten about them I promise.

    Will the Mac versions be download-only, or will they be fitted into 2nd Edition DVDs?

  • Download only. I don't think there will be any way for us to reissue the season dvds to include the mac versions as well.

  • This is fantastic to hear. I was just going to send an email to see if we should expect a Mac version of S1. Waiting to start the entire saga until this happens!

    Thanks guys!

  • That's awesome news. I bought myself all three seasons of Sam and Max, and I've been dying to start playing, but I have to find a PC laptop to borrow from somewhere first to start season 1. I have a macbookpro as my personal laptop, and I don't feel comfortable playing games on my work PC computers :P

    I also really want to purchase Wallace and Gromit, but I'm waiting for it to be released for mac usage.

    Actually, I'd like to know, if I buy Wallace and Gromit for the PC right now, then will the mac version become available to me (for download) as well once it's developed? I won't have to buy it again, right?

    I'm eying the deals that are taking place this month, and it might be worth it to use one of those 50%-off deals to buy Wallace and Gromit NOW, even if it's on PC, and just hope it gets upgraded to a mac version sometime in the future.

    You are correct.
    At least, that's how it was with Tales of Monkey Island and Sam & Max's second season, both of which got Mac releases long after I bought the PC version.

    Ok. Good to know. Thanks!
    I just finished buying the Wallace and Gromit season series, and now I'll just have to be patient and wait for the mac version to be released... hopefully sometime soon :P

    erm... just how long did you mean when you say 'long after I bought the PC version'?

    Telltale only started porting their games to the Mac in February 2010. Both Tales of Monkey Island and Sam and Max Season 2 had been out for a long time then. (Especially Sam and Max) Every game that came out after that has been available for the Mac from release day.

    You may have to wait a while for Wallace and Gromit. There has been no Mac ports of previously released games since Sam and Max Season 2 at the beginning of the year.

  • So, any news on the wallace and gromit port on mac?
    If telltale could do the same treatment to wallace they did to strongbad (that means mac port+ dvd), I'll buy it asap.
