MacHeist: ToMI Mac for $20 (perhaps)

Mac heads, here's your chance to pick up ToMI cheap (along with some other stuff). Here's the blurb:
[quote]As a Mac user, you're used to being treated great by your software. You love the apps your Mac shipped with, and you've heard of some amazing indie apps, and you're intrigued. But you have no idea where to begin.

This is where we come in. We've assembled a collection of some of the indie community's greatest apps, over $260 worth, and packaged it all together for you at an impulse price of just $19.95.

Enrich your software life, save a ton of money, help brighten the world, and make your Mac happy all in one fell swoop. Great apps, gigantic value, all available for a truly miniature price.[/quote]

The catch? You only get ToMI if they sell 50,000 copies. Oh, and no hard copy either. And the offer ends in 6 days. The good news is that they're almost half way to that goal. Here's the site. Oh, and $5 from each transaction goes to a charity (you get to choose which specific charity from a list of 11).

    Now, it's RapidWeaver that will be unlocked when 50000 bundles are sold.

    Yup, just unlocked my copy, not sure why it was unlocked early though *shrug* though I'm liking some of the other software bundle in like Flow.

  • Woohoo!

    My copy of ToMI just unlocked. Awesome! I'm extremely excited. I love these sorts of games. Two questions:

    1. Is there any way to use my pass/serial to download the game on Steam?

    2. What is this talk of getting a DVD?

    Thanks!

  • 1)If its a code for the Telltale store, then I'm 99% sure you can't.

    2)The DVD has the game as well as a lot of super duper extra features. It's currently still being made, but once it's done (In a few months or so. These things take time.) you can get it for just the cost of shipping from the Telltale store. If you had got it on Steam, then you would have to pay the full price of the DVD.

    It is indeed a gift code for the Telltale store so, DJLanglois, I guess you won't be able to get it on Steam.

    Ah, that's cool. Thanks for letting me know.

    When I purchased Empire: Total War a few months ago, I realized when I got home that I could install/download the game through Steam, using my serial number. I was shocked, but extremely pleasantly surprised. I was just hoping that the phenomenon was more widespread. Oh well. :)

    I'm excited about the DVD. That's pretty cool news.

  • I got it through the Macheist deal, but it doesn't work on my 2ghz 2gb ram black Macbook. Even on the lowest resolution and lowest quality, it's just very choppy, and the audio and subtext can't sync with the video, and trying to move Guybrush is an exercise in futility because it's just so slow. Anyone with a Macbook of this setup, don't get the bundle because of the game.

    It would probably be helpful to post the system requirements somewhere. I see them for Windows, but not for Mac.

    I feel very foolish for having just spent 35 bucks on March 7th, when I could have had the season plus extras for only 20 bucks. I mean, I like supporting TellTale, so it's not like I feel cheated. I just feel stupid for not checking the forums more closely and being fiscally smarter.

    Congrats to everyone who actually read up and got this deal. :-)

  • Come to think of it, I might just buy this bundle anyway so that I can save my code to use as a gift. It's for charity and I'm all about passing on the sweet monkey love.

    Welcome to the forums, cyberg00se!

    The Mac system requirements are indeed displayed underneath the Windows ones. They are, to wit:

    Mac System Requirements:

    Operating Systems:
    Mac OS X 10.5 or newer
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo processor
    Not Recommended For: Macs with integrated graphics

    I checked for your MacBook model at EveryMac.com -- unless I'm missing something, it should be one of these two. Unfortunately, both use integrated graphics, which means your MacBook doesn't meet the last recommendation. Sorry. :(

    For future reference, the best place to post your support questions is down in the Support Forum. More often than not, you'll get help directly from Telltale much faster this way. :)

    EDIT: Looking at the models again, I see that only the late '06 black MacBook uses a Core 2 Duo processor, which is also a requirement. FWIW ...

  • The deal completely unlocked all 7 apps and then added Tweetie as an 8th (plus, and this made me giggle, Burning Monkey Solitaire). For 20 bucks the entire package included a bunch of other stuff I wanted (like RapidWeaver and MacJournal) so TellTale can expect one more loyal fan soon--I just have to decide who to give my copy of ToMI to.
