Mac Man

For the love of sweet zombie Jesus. Please release a Mac version, or a multi-system version.

As being one of the few people that not only own a Mac but actually play games on it, I recall the good ol' days of playing Sam & Max on my wonderfully horrible dinosaur Mac Proforma, which now sits rotting away in my garage.

Its probably asking for too much. But I would very much like to see a new Sam & Max game on the Mac side of computing stuff.

But hell, I'm just happy there is a new Sam & Max game at all.

Next up, a Full Throttle sequel that doesn't look like crap...right guys?

  • Maybe if Telltale gets Aaron Giles to do it someone will send in another piece of great fanart. In the end, that's all that matters. ;)

    *giggles at this fanart*

    I am one of those bizarre people who, aside from DDR, doesnt play video games. (why on earth am i in this forum?) But you know, if I could get anything for mac, maybe I would.

    I use a mac becuase it's more suited to my work. It handels video editing and large-scale artwork with a much greater confidence than anything from PC land. I can alos wander the internet fairly unafraid of evil viruses and bugs. It's simpler, it's friendlier, it's cuter. It just makes sense.

    Mine's a cute little tiny powerbook. I named it "Izzy". Or maybe it was "Trixie". I never decided.

  • I think the reason most games don't come out on Mac and Linux is because, well... Windows is the most popular. If you ask your average person about linux they'll stare at you for a few seconds then walk away. Or maybe they'll pronounce it wrong and then show you some freakin' picture of Tux with a gun and the windows logo. And they'll call him linux or the linux penguin if you ask what he is.

    Also, the majority of Mac users don't buy Macs for games or are even gamers at all. My Mum uses a Mac laptop because she teaches and all the computers at her school are Macs. Because they're idiot proof which is why they're bought mostly.

    Yeah, the reason most games don't come out on Mac is because there isn't enough of a market to justify it, sadly.

    Actually, the reason most games don't come out on Mac is because most games are made with Direct X. Macs use Open GL instead of Direct X. If a game is made with Open GL then technically it can also be released on Macs. Of course there's also the way games are put together, a mac uses a .app which is a folder that contains all the information, a PC has an .exe that runs with various .ini and other little sub-programs and folders at the same time.

    Personally, knowing Telltale is made of old Lucasarts folks (Lucasarts a company that's produced PC and Mac versions of their games... At least I think they produced them...) I'm pretty sure they could make Mac versions of Bone and Sam and Max if they wanted to (and if they wanted my money since there's no way I can play the PC versions.) However cross-platform publishing is something drawn out before a single line of code is typed (or usually is.) If there's no Mac version now there will never be unless the games sell so well Telltale hires another company to produce the Mac versions.
