Mac Port?
Does anyone know if a Mac port is in the works?

I'd also like to inquire about the possibility of a Mac version of the game.

No word yet?

For what it's worth, I have a Late 2011 MacBook Pro (base model) and I've been playing this game through Parallels version 9, using Windows 7. I think I'm about halfway through and there haven't been any performance issues so far; there was one segment of the game where things got a bit choppy, but it seems to have been an isolated thing (and given that I'm running my virtual machine off of a hard drive connected by FireWire 400, it's also possible that some background process started to saturate the bandwidth at that point).

A native version is always best, but if you have VMWare Fusion or Parallels, give it a shot.

Yea, I was wondering which of those is best, Crossover, Parallels, VMWare Fusion? You don't need Windows with Crossover. I tried the trial of Corssover's trial and I got Skyrim playing on my Mid 2010 Macbook at lowest setting and it works fine.

Parallels has traditionally had better performance in graphics benchmarks than VMWare Fusion, while VMWare Fusion did better in things like power efficiency and certain file system operations. I'd imagine that they could both be used to good effect, but if you don't have either and would be getting one primarily to use for game emulation, then Parallels is probably the best bet.

I don't have any experience with Crossover, and none of the benchmarks that I've seen comparing emulation software included Crossover. There are probably some out there, but I can't say how Crossover compares to the other two.

Thanks for the info Ledgem. Yea, I had gotten it down to either Parallels or Crossover. Crossover becasue you don't need Windows. But yea, I want it to play video games, I don't need it for anything else. And Crossover was cheaper than Parellels too. But maybe I can try a trial of Parallels. Thanks again.

Just get the Windows version and play it ... I still don't understand why such a small minority of "players" want to torture themselves with using OS's (mac or linux) that noone uses and then complain their game(s) aren't supported...

Well, people are using Mac/Linux. Be careful of hyperbole: it might bite you in the butt.

One reason why I like Mac versions of games is because it means I don't have to use Wine (no garuntee that it'll work with a particular game, minor performance hit on DirectX games), a virtualizer (performance hit on DirectX games), boot into Windows (OS X isn't running, less secure), or boot up a PC (Have another computer running). I will admit to having a PC mainly for gaming, but even then, I rarely boot it up to play games anymore (could be that I do more coding than gaming nowadays, and I code mainly on/for OS X). There's time to booting up Windows, as well as the ease-of-use of having a Mac version ready to go with little fiddling of config files, etc.

I can't believe they haven't made a Mac port yet. This game is totally suited for Mac gamers.

+1 for this to release of OSX, I'm quite surprised that it wasn't Mac first, I don't see nearly as many people running PCs these days especially not tech-savvy people.
