Frostpunk Mac artFrostpunk

Strategy
FrostpunkFrom the creators of the stellar This War of Mine comes Frostpunk, a city-building / survival game set in a frozen world. Fight the elements and face tough ethical decisions as you form a society and do your best to keep the city alive.

Frostpunk's concept sounds similar to This War of Mine’s, except Frostpunk is a much bigger game. It was built by 12 people whereas This War of Mine was built by 60!

Beyond Blue Mac artBeyond Blue

Adventure
Beyond BlueCreated by the team behind Never Alone in conjunction with leading ocean experts, Beyond Blue will let players explore the mysteries of the ocean “in a more meaningful way than has ever been attempted.”

Industries of TitanFrom the creators of the beloved Crypt of the NecroDancer (one of the best Mac games out there) comes this building simulator set on Saturn’s moon.

In Industries of Titan, you get to design your own cities, build factories, and manage their economy. But you will also need to protect your cities by designing battleships to engage in tactical combat against hostiles. This game is an ambitious project and I’m glad to know it’s in good hands.

The UniversimAvailable now in Steam Early Access, The Universim is a new god game from Crytivo. Manage entire planets as they evolve under your watchful, helpful, and sometimes punishing eyes. You’ll be influencing the Nuggets as they build, research, advance and survive as a species.

Their success is dependent upon your actions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some godly fun at their expense. Create disasters, launch them into space, whatever... They’ve got to learn their lesson if they want to survive the winter.

Crazy JusticeIf the environments, characters and action of Fortnite are getting a little stale for you, it may be time to take on Crazy Justice.

This Steam Early Access game from Black Riddles Studio and Fig Publishing allows you to choose your hero, customize his/her abilities, and travel the world to loot weapons that will help you vanquish the forces of evil or just be the last one standing, depending upon the game mode. And if you like vehicles, there are more here than just shopping carts.

PULSAR: Lost ColonyAnother Steam Early Access game, PULSAR: Lost Colony is a cooperative space exploration game that takes place in randomly generated galaxies.

Team up with up to 4 other friends to operate an advanced starship and explore a galaxy descending into chaos. Each player assumes a role aboard the ship (Captain, Pilot, Weapon specialist, etc) and good coordination between players will be crucial. I can't wait to see how this one pans out.

If so, you’ll certainly want to check out Empires of the Undergrowth, a real-time ant colony management game in Steam Early Access. It’s up to you to build a nest conducive to growing your colony to the point that it can defend itself from rival colonies and other hazards.

Missions are laid out as if part of a documentary, complete with narration that provides intelligent insight. Play as different ant species, all of whom will battle beetles, spiders, and other arthropods.

Fortnite: Save The WorldIt’s easy to forget that Fortnite: Battle Royal launched as the PVP experience of a larger game, but that may change when Fortnite: Save the World leaves early access in 2019. Unlike Battle Royal, Save the World is a PVE (player vs. environment) co-op survival shooter game in which up to four players team up to defend their fortifications from zombies.

Set up shelters, find survivors, and collect data on the events that led to this apocalyptic situation in the first place, all while attempting to stay alive.

In it, players will guide squads through a procedurally generated city reminiscent of Tron: Legacy. Set up your strategy, then watch it play it out. Collaborate or betray. Assassinate or assist. Single and multiplayer modes will be supported.

Cyanide & HappinessBased on the popular webcomic by the same name, Cyanide & Happiness is a new approach to point-and-click adventures, filled with dark comedy, drama, weirdness, and an apocalypse in the suburbs.

This is one good-looking and interesting game that oozes originality. No wonder it was quickly funded on Kickstarter, raising nearly $575,000 from almost 15,000 backers.

Griftlands Mac artGriftlands

Role-Playing
GriftlandsGriftlands is an RPG that will have you negotiating over money, loyalty and your own morality as you seek to make your fortune within the game’s flowing economy. A full cast of characters is available for you to control and set up as companions. These characters will also engage in turn-based combat where the goal is to subdue, not to kill. Kind of a refreshing approach these days, really.

As with any game coming from Klei Entertainment, the company that brought us Don’t Starve and Oxygen Not Included, among others, we will be keeping an eye on this one.

Outer WildsOuter Wilds, the first ever game funded on Fig.co, is an open-world exploration game about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop. The game features fully simulated planets you'll need to explore in your search for answers.

Problem is, you have only 20 minutes before your planet is destroyed. Similar to the cult-classic Majora's Mask, you'll need to use what you learn with every playthrough to eventually save the universe.

7 Days to Die7 Days to Die is an open world game that aims to combine survival horror, tower defense, and role-playing into a first-person shooter. That may sound like an ambitious, and perhaps nearly impossible, proposition, but developer The Fun Pimps largely succeeds.

Available on Steam Early Access since 2013, this is one game that keeps pushing updates, adding features and polishing gameplay. I can't wait to see that this will look like once the game is finally released.

Age of Wonders: PlanetfallIf there’s a game about a planet that has fallen, you know it’ll be up to you to rebuild it. From Triumph Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Age of Wonders and Overlord series, Age of Wonders: Planetfall will task players with exploring a fallen empire to discover new races and technologies that can be used to fight, build and advance your house.

Of course, many of the races aren’t there to help, so you’ll need to build a strong army in order to conquer them and utilize their technologies to become even stronger on your way to victory.

In The Valley of GodsFrom the creators of Firewatch, 2016's indie game of the year, In the Valley of Gods is a first-person adventure game set in 1920s Egypt. You'll take the role of an explorer and filmmaker and will embark on a mission that will bring you fame and fortune—or leave you for dead, buried beneath the sands.

As you recruit the help of a former partner you vowed never to work with again, you can expect the same stellar storytelling and characters that made Firewatch famous.

System ShockDeveloped by Night Dive Studios, System Shock is a complete remake of the 1994 classic of the same name. Take on the role of a resourceful hacker as you explore and survive the terrors of Citadel Station brought on by a rogue AI.

With over $1.3 Million raised on Kickstarter and a full team of industry veterans from games like Fallout: New Vegas, Mass Effect, and BioShock, this remake aims to be a worthy successor of the game we all know and love.

Phoenix PointIn Phoenix Point, the tactical turn-based strategy game from the creator of the original XCOM, players take on the role of a secret organization called the Phoenix Point.

The game features turn based tactics and world based strategy in a fight against a terrifying, alien menace. This may sound a lot like XCOM, but that makes sense as Julian Gallop, the man who gave birth to the XCOM franchise, is behind this project.

Confirmed

Sometime 2019StrategyConfirmed
Insurgency: SandstormAlthough we have no official release date announced for the Mac, the developers have stated they hope to get Mac/Linux support after the Windows launch in December 2018. Let’s hope that happens so Mac gamers can join in on all of the first-person shooter, multiplayer goodness.

Unlike competing games, Insurgency: Sandstorm provides close-quarters intensity through its highly-deadly weaponry and the lack of a health bar or mini-map. Team coordination is key to survival, not health packs. Are you ready for that?
