GOG now offering Mac games

Games download site Good Old Games (GOG) has expanded its stock to include games compatible with Mac OS X computers, offering 50 Apple-friendly titles from today.

The site, which sells games DRM-free, today added the likes of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital, Simcity 2000 Special Edition and Wing Commander 1 2 to its line-up. You can see the full list of OS X games here.

Many of these titles are surprisingly cheap. The Witcher, for instance, costs just $4.99, while SimCity 2000 is $2.99 – 50 percent off the normal price for a limited time. Even better, there are no fewer than eight games available for nothing, including Beneath A Steel Sky and Ultima 4: Quest of the Avatar. Sign up and you’ll automatically see these added to your personal library.

GOG’s pricing is worldwide, so the price just converts from US dollars to GBP or whatever currency you’re using.

If you own a PC as well as a Mac, GOG’s system means any dual-format games will work on both devices.

Mac gamers are often an overlooked bunch, so GOG’s announcement today will come as good news to them, especially given the affordability of the line-up. GOG rival Steam has been selling Mac OS X titles for over two years now, and offers a pretty impressive range of titles, including more “big names” than GOG. Between the two, there’s now an impressive roster of games available to Mac users.
