Bone OS X

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

I remember my heart leaping. I was surfing the internet and suddenly saw that Bone: Out From Boneville was released for Mac!

I leapt to the URL, credit card in hand. Finally, Telltale Games are releasing there titles on OS X! I couldn't be happier.

Downloading the disc image, installing the game and typing in my new serial number, thrilled that my days of booting into Windows was over I started playing the game.

Now, don't get me wrong, I had a good time. But I did have a couple of niggles - mainly that the sound would distort awfully from time to time, on my G4, G5 and even my shiny new Intel. 'Oh well' I thought, 'it's the first version, and hey, the Directors Cut update is coming soon - plenty of time for this to be fixed'.

Sadly this never came to pass, and as time went on the Vanbrio web-site vanished, along with my hopes for other Telltale titles to appear on the Mac, but hey - at least I have the Wii version of Sam & Max to look forward to (but hoping it won't be as glitchy as CSI). But I digress, I have also found that like several others I've noticed on the forum that I am unable to register my copy of the game post hard drive failure. I guess once again I shall have to boot back into Windows to play my favourite games

Also today I noticed that CSI is being ported to OS X. Now I realise that this is a Ubisoft thing, but is there any possibility of other Telltale titles making The Leap?

For those of you that got bored and skipped to the end my questions are:

Is there a way to register Bone on the Mac?

Is gameplay smoother in Sam & Max Wii than in CSI?

and

Will any titles other than Bone* and CSI see light of day on OS X in the foreseeable future?

Oh, and I might as well throw in - so, Telltale's games on iPod/Phone, any possibility ;)

*if this game still counts
