|Games||Games||About||Release date||Genre||Free games only?||New entries only?|
Into the BreachStrategy
|Into the Breach||The developers of the widely acclaimed FTL are back with Into the Breach, a turn-based strategy game with randomly generated content based on your previous actions. To defend civilization from gigantic enemies you must build mechs with powerful weapons and find the right soldiers to pilot them. |
The actions you take and strategies you develop on a level will determine what happens on the next, so the game is as good at analyzing you as you are at analyzing your enemies. Sometimes the best solution is simply the one that’s the least bad.
|Dead Cells||Dead Cells is an action-platformer from developer Motion Twin that some call the best Castlevania game in years. The game contains no checkpoints as you explore its Castlevania-like world, so you’ll need to quickly learn how to survive. |
You’ll get a lot of weapons to help you on your way, but the game’s more about improving your skills than letting your die/restart your way through the 11 levels currently available. Frustration and triumph across 16 to 20 hours of platformer action.
|Overcooked! 2||I’ve worked in enough restaurants in my time to not be enthralled by the phrase “chaotic cooking action.” But this is the Onion Kingdom, not Perkins, and here you can share the frantic restaurant lifestyle with up to the three friends locally or online. |
The “steaks” are higher, too, as you’re not serving sushi, burgers and pizza simply to beat the evening rush, you have to save the world from the evil Unbread! Set up your team of chefs and enjoy some casual action cooking.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2Action
|LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2||LEGO and super heroes go together like...well, like LEGO and anything really. And that’s why it’s easy to recommend you check out the latest tie-in with the Marvel cinematic universe. |
This time around, the time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror serves up an excuse for dozens of Marvel characters to enter into the typically light-hearted action and puzzle-solving, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Black Panther, Spider-Man and...Iron Duck? As fun and funny as you’ve come to expect from the LEGO video games.
Star Traders: FrontiersRole-Playing
|Star Traders: Frontiers||Here we have some space exploration on a grand scale. This RPG puts you in charge of a ship and its crew as a space pirate, bounty hunter, merchant, or “profession” of your choice as you set out to explore its massive open universe. |
The setting is constantly evolving around you, and how you fit in (and help shape it) is entirely up to you. Join the military, take on a mercenary role, play both sides as a spy...it’s entirely up to you. Just make sure you customize your ship and select/train your crew for the challenges ahead; the space sandbox can be a dangerous place.
This is the Police 2Adventure
|This is the Police 2||The sequel to the popular indie hit This is the Police, gamers once again get the chance to run a sheriff's department, manage the officers, and basically “interpret the law as you see fit.” |
I mean, that’s really bad practice for real-life officers, but it makes for some entertaining story-driven gameplay on your Mac. Part sim as you manage your department, part puzzle/adventure as you solve crimes, and part tactical RPG as you take to the streets, This is the Police 2 comes with all the drama and intrigue of a prime-time cop show, except you’re in charge.
|Chasm||If you prefer video games that present their challenge from left to right, then Chasm may be what you’re looking for. This Metroidvania-style platformer thrusts you into the depths below a mining town that has been mysteriously deserted. |
Complete with skills to learn, weapons to acquire, bosses to defeat and treasure to acquire, Chasm takes you gleefully back to a time when the action was as large as the pixels that shaped it. And because the areas are procedurally-generated, Chasm is a different adventure every time you play it.
|Vaporum||How long has it been since you’ve found yourself in a strange, dangerous setting with no idea of who you are or how you got there? Not that long, you say? Well, let’s mix this gaming trope up a bit by adding in a steampunk setting, first-person real-time combat, a gadget-based level-up system, and plenty of puzzles to solve with plenty of items to acquire. |
Vaporum is a dungeon-crawler unlike any you’ve played in quite a while, and it’ll leave you wondering why you haven’t spent more time seeking out games like this.
The Banner Saga 3Role-Playing
|The Banner Saga 3||“The end has come.” That’s good news and bad news, as it means the final chapter of The Banner Saga can finally be played, but also that the trilogy is now wrapped up. This story-driven tactical RPG from Stoic has won over the hearts of fans and critics alike, and has already become an all-time must-play for Mac gamers. |
As such, pick up the first two entries in this Norse mythology-inspired game if you haven’t already. If you have already played them, you don’t need us to tell you to grab The Banner Saga 3; you’re already playing it.
Guts and GloryRacing
|Guts and Glory||Perhaps nothing better exemplifies family bonding than racing together through “obstacle courses of death,” so why not participate in Guts and Glory? This game show basically throws myriad hazards at you (such as saw blades, spikes and explosives) as you race along a defined track in an attempt to survive with at least most of your limbs still attached. |
It’s violent, it’s gory, and it’s often quite comical if you share its macabre sense of humor. Perhaps it should be Guts or Glory, however, as you can’t finish with both.
Clicker Heroes 2Role-Playing
|Clicker Heroes 2||It can be hard when you reach the end of a game you’ve greatly enjoyed. Where do you go from there? Well, you won’t have to worry about that with Clicker Heroes 2, as it has no end. You just keep advancing through this never-ending journey, leveling up all the while to defeat wave after wave of mythical creatures. |
You may never reach the top right of your computer screen, but do you really want to? Prepare to lose plenty of hours to this action RPG and have little more to show for it than more hours to lose.
A Light In the DarkVisual Novel
|A Light In the Dark||Two sisters kidnap the son of a wealthy CEO in a desperate attempt to escape the debt left to them by their father. You play the kidnapped boy, and it’s up to you to make the right decisions to escape alive. But are the sisters really villains? Are you really a victim? |
In true visual novel style, there are plenty of ways through A Light In the Dark, and you can rest assured that they won’t be pleasant. It’s a short game, but one you can play through multiple times to experience the different endings...some of which may not involve blood.
|Overload||“... from the creators of Descent.” There’s a large faction of older gamers like me who will hear that and immediately check out Overload, a “six-degrees-of-freedom” zero-gravity shooter. If you’re not sure what that is, just imagine the end of any sci-fi movie in which a brave renegade pilot has to take out a large alien structure from within and/or escape from its destruction. |
Fluid controls and graphics will send you careening through over 15 levels of single player action, while various challenge modes and online multiplayer with up to 8 players will keep you coming back for more.
Cultist SimulatorCollectible Cards
|Cultist Simulator||Here’s something a bit more unique than what we normally see in computer gaming. Cultist Simulator is a roguelike narrative card game in which you craft a story of “ambition, appetite and abomination” set in roaring ‘20s. |
You will found a cult and recruit believers to help you achieve your goals as you dig deeper into the arcane while thwarting your rivals and the authorities. Every decision you make shapes the narrative, so choose wisely. Power can come from many sources, but what are you willing to sacrifice to get it?
|Monster Prom||Having three weeks to get a date to prom isn’t uncommon. I was there myself back in the day. But having to do so when you’re a monster is a situation normally reserved for Monster High dolls. |
Well, you can now experience the frustrations and triumphs of high school social shenanigans with this macabre competitive dating sim. Play alone or with up to three others as you attempt to survive high school and seduce your sweetheart so you won’t have to spend prom alone. Witty, mature, and not for the faint-of-heart.
|OneShot||Finally, we calm things down a little bit with OneShot. Released for Windows in December 2016, Mac gamers finally get the chance to experience the charm of this clever puzzle/adventure game in which you must guide a child through a mysterious world. |
Why? Because you need to restore its long-dead sun. But OneShot goes so much deeper than that, providing a story that will move you until the end and stick with you well after it’s done. Grab it now and find out why it was well worth the wait.
|Moonlighter||It’s one thing to explore new worlds, stealing all the treasure you can. It’s another thing to use your loot for the benefit of the community. But that’s exactly what you do in the rogue-lite action RPG Moonlighter. |
Travel through the gates to engage in retro style (but deep) combat, then set up shop and hire assistants to help you price and sell the items you’ve carefully selected (you can’t carry everything, after all). Whether you’re a shopkeeper who dreams of adventure or an adventurer who dreams of running a successful business, Moonlighter will keep you entertained.
Total War Sagas: Thrones of BritanniaStrategy
|Total War Sagas: Thrones of Britannia||Brought to Mac by Feral Interactive, this is the first in the new Total War Saga series of standalone games inspired by great turning points of history. The game takes place in the British Isles in 878 AD, as Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, and Viking settlers vie for supremacy.|
Combining huge real-time battles with deep turn-based strategy, Thrones of Britannia has everything you would expect from a Total War game. Forge alliances, manage settlements, raise armies and embark on a campaign of conquest from the highlands of Gaelic Scotland to the fields of Anglo-Saxon Kent.
|Gorogoa||This is the kind of game we love to tell you about because it’s such a unique experience. An “elegant evolution of the puzzle genre,” Gorogoa tasks the player with arranging hand-illustrated panels to create a sequence of animations that complete the game’s puzzles. It’s as much a work of art as it is a game, and is wonderfully charming throughout.|
Available for Windows since December of 2017, Gorogoa is just now available for Mac. The wait is worth it, so be sure to experience this game’s fantastic visuals, intriguing puzzles and touching story.
|Subsurface Circular||In Subsurface Circular, a text-based adventure game from the team behind Thomas Was Alone and Volume, you are a detective investigating a series of disappearances. Inspired by classic adventure games, this game is all about the conversations you'll have with all the characters around you. You'll need to collect words and phrases, then use them in dialogue puzzles to solve the many mysteries around you.|
There is very little action in this game and some may argue the entire experience is a little short, but this is a fascinating visual novel that respects your time and intelligence.
FAR: Lone SailsAdventure
|FAR: Lone Sails||Here’s a rather unique, wondrous, and lonely journey across a barren landscape. FAR: Lone Sails is mostly about how far you can get across a dried-out seabed, overcoming obstacles and environmental hazards along the way. Keep your vehicle in working order to explore the land and learn of the civilization that left it behind.|
If you’re tired of post-apocalyptic games full of zombies and mutants, FAR: Lone Sails gives you one full of...nothing. Just you, your vehicle, and a story to be found. It’s a melancholic experience that sticks with you after you’re done.
|House Flipper||I guess the couple dozen house flipping/renovation shows on TV weren’t enough, and we needed a video game of the same. So, here’s House Flippers, your chance to buy, renovate, and sell homes at a profit.|
House Flippers allows you to play different ways. Buy an empty apartment and improve the interior design, buy a dilapidated house and get busy with your tools, or buy a decent house and give it some style. Manage your budget, get better tools, and eventually acquire the type of fortune and fame normally relegated to annoying personalities on the upper cable channels.
Wizard of LegendAction
|Wizard of Legend||Because who wants to control a forgotten wizard, right? Wizard of Legend offers a retro take on rogue-like dungeon crawlers, rewarding quick movement and quicker use of spells. The faster you are, the better the combos you chain to unleash devastating attacks against your foes.|
Wizard of Legend offers over a hundred unique spells and relics that you can customize to fit your play style. It’s not easy, but those who persist will find it rewarding. And if you’re having trouble, try the co-op version; it’s much more fun that way.
|Paladins||This free-to-play team-based shooter just left early access, so now’s the time to find out why it did so with 25+ millions players.|
Paladins drew a lot of comparisons to Overwatch during its early access period, but has grown into quite a bit more. Teamworks is the key to victory here, rewarding players who pick a diverse group of champions (choose from “sharpshooting humans, mech-riding goblins, mystical elves and jetpack-clad dragons”) and communicate well to use them wisely. The game also features impressive graphics and excellent gameplay, and the developers offer great support.
Pillars of Eternity 2Role-Playing
|Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire||This is the type of game to which you can devote your entire summer. The sequel to the award-winning RPG Pillars of Eternity, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire sees you returning as a Watcher. With the ability to read the memories of others (and even the memories of their past lives) you find yourself with incredible powers...and incredibly powerful enemies.|
Complete with a deeply involving story that takes you through gorgeously detailed environments, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire provides the type of depth and customization options that’ll satisfy RPG gamers for months.
Battle for WesnothMMO
|Battle for Wesnoth||This 100% free turn-based strategy game has been available for a while now, but is much more accessible now that it can be downloaded via Steam. An open-source game, Battle for Wesnoth features 17 solo campaigns and over 50 multiplayer maps, not to mention community-created campaigns and factions for fantasy gaming that will appeal to Tolkien fans.|
The hex-grid combat will take you back to the ‘90s visually, which—as we’ve mentioned before—was a tremendously colorful and detailed place to be. Joining the large, dedicated fanbase is now easier than ever.
The Swords of DittoRole-Playing
|The Swords of Ditto||If you prefer your RPGs a little more...charming...then take a look at The Swords of Ditto. This “compact action RPG” that looks like something direct from the Cartoon Network creates a new adventure for each hero you use. Arm yourself with unorthodox weapons such as golf clubs and yo-yos (or go with the more traditional sword) and set out to overcome evil.|
Players can explore the dangerous overworld and menacing dungeons alone or via online co-op in an effort to vanquish monsters and acquire loot. A light-hearted but challenging adventure.
|Battletech||The distant future. A galaxy in perpetual war. Noble houses in control. It sounds bleak, but is totally worth it when you get to fight single-player and PvP battles in massive, mechanical combat vehicles.|
You command a mercenary squad of over 30 BattleMechs to position on the gaming grid for turn-based combat. Take advantage of the terrain and the special capabilities of your squad members in order to gain the upper hand. Between battles, you’ll have to recruit new MechWarriors and upgrade them with new technologies all while managing your reputation and allegiances.
For The KingAdventure
|For The King||The King is dead, and you know what that means; either alone or via local or online co-op, it's time to rise up and protect the realm. For the King uses JRPG style turn-based combat on procedurally generated hexagonal grids. |
Fight numerous and powerful enemies, avoid traps, acquire items and level up your heroes as you progress through the adventure that spans poisons swamps, massive seas and mystical forests. Will your strategies be enough to help you save the realm? Only if you’re willing to adjust them as necessary!
Friday the 13th: Killer PuzzlePuzzles
|Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle||Is your favorite thing about the Friday the 13th movies the inventive methods Jason uses to...we’ll say address problems? If so, you’ll want to check out Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle. This simultaneously violent and cute casual game presents you with over 100 levels of puzzle-violence as you seek to kill the characters in the fewest possible moves. |
There are plenty of references to the iconic horror series, including levels that range from Camp Crystal Lake to Manhattan to outer space. The game is free, with microtransactions providing extra costumes, levels, etc.
Rise of the Tomb RaiderAction
|Rise of the Tomb Raider||I can’t recall a time when Lara Croft wasn’t rising, but here she goes again, seeking adventure across the ruins of Syria to the frozen mountains of Siberia and points in between. As with its predecessor from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix, Lara can equip a wide variety of tools and weapons to use for hunting, eliminating enemies and uncovering the treasures she’s sought from game one.|
And as you’d expect from Feral Interactive, the Mac release comes with all of the game’s DLC bundled in, providing numerous challenges, difficulty modes and co-op play.
Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced EditionRole-Playing
|Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition||This fantastic 2003 RPG from Bioware and MacSoft has been upgraded by Beamdog for play on your modern Mac. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition contains all of the content from the Neverwinter Nights Diamond edition, including the Kingmaker expansion which was never released for the Mac. |
Combine this with numerous enhancements and you’ve got 100+ hours of content that will feel as fresh as it did 15 years ago. Beamdog, the game’s developer, teamed with the community to build in fan-requested gameplay and UI improvements, and the graphics now include advanced features such as pixel shaders and support for 4k displays.
Ash of Gods: RedemptionRole-Playing
|Ash of Gods: Redemption||This turn-based RPG from AurumDust, which raised close to $100,000 on Kickstarter, combines traditional turn-based RPG combat with CCG tactics, as cards you unlock can be used to launch powerful attacks. That’s not the most unique element of the game, however. Rather, it’s that main characters can die, and their deaths then get woven into the story. |
Live or die, your decisions throughout the game will impact the story, as well. This adds plenty of replay value, but could also set you up for very difficult conclusions. This will sound familiar to fans of Banner Saga, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Ash of Gods: Redemption has its own identity.
|CHUCHEL||From Amanita Design, the team behind Machinarium, CHUCHEL is a game packed with an awful lot of clever, whimsical puzzles into the time you get with it. The puzzles are clever and the animations/characters are funny, accented by colorful graphics and music by IGF Award-winning band DVA.|
If some of the stages seem familiar as you progress it’s because Amanita Design based a few on classic video games of years past. CHUCHEL can be solved with clever deduction or trial and error. Either way, it’s a silly, lively experience that you won’t soon forget.
Civilization 6: Rise and FallStrategy
|Civilization 6: Rise and Fall||Civ 6: Rise and Fall expansion offers plenty of new features that can heavily alter your civilization-building strategies. For instance, you’ll now want to inspire loyalty amongst your citizens to prevent revolt and in neighboring territories to help expansion. You can recruit powerful characters and appoint them as governors to utilize their special bonuses in city customization. |
Civilizations can form pacts against threats, earning reward or penalties when the threat is over, depending upon how it ended. Then, of course, there’s all the new global content: eight new world wonders, seven natural wonders, four new units, two new districts, and plenty more.
|Surviving Mars||Getting to Mars is no longer the problem, it’s surviving it once you get there. Surviving Mars is a new city builder developed by Haemimont Games.|
Building your city will be a challenge. Mine for resources, cultivate food, build resource centers and shelters, and keep your citizens healthy and happy as you face the numerous challenges of planetary colonization. Surviving Mars will have you dealing with everything from the mystery of the black cubes to alcoholism, and it doesn’t give you a lot of help with tutorials.
|Northgard||In Northgard, there’s a new continent to be explored and conquered. Of course, it’s not going to be easy. There are rival clans to face, undead warriors and giants to defeat, and snow. Plenty of snow. You’ll survive it all by building your settlement, putting your Vikings to work, and expanding your territory to acquire materials and strategic advantages.|
Northgard features online multiplayer against your friends or AI along with an 11 chapter single player campaign. So, whether you’re into real-time strategy games, Viking lore or both, Northgard is waiting to be conquered.
|Shooty Skies||From the creators of Crossy Road for Apple TV comes Shooty Skies for the Mac. Gameplay in this “endless flyer” is as simple as you’d expect: dodge bullets, shoot enemies, defeat bosses. |
There are many types of enemies to face and many characters you can unlock, and it’s all free… to a point. You can have quite a bit of fun without paying a dime, but items such as gun upgrades require in-app-purchases, and the purchases aren’t permanent. Still, Shooty Skies is a very fun game that can be just as addictive as Crossy Road, if not more so.
Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2Action
|Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2||Taking place 15 years after the events of Guns, Gore and Cannoli, our hero Vinnie finds himself on the battlefields of World War II. He doesn’t have to go it alone, however, as the campaign mode can be played alone or with the help of up to three friends.|
The game contains the same action-filled and humorous story elements of its predecessor, but Vinnie’s movements and attacks have been given an upgrade. He’s much more mobile now, and the variety of weapons at his disposal is vast.
|Vagante||Vagante is an indie platformer that carries the difficulty of rogue-like gaming, but at least you don’t have to go at it alone. You can fight your way through the procedurally generated levels by yourself or with the help of three other players via local or online.|
The game is set in a dark fantasy world of monsters, demons and crooks…and a cave. That cave is rumored to contain “unfathomable treasure,” but we can’t know for sure because no one has ever returned from its depths. RPG-like character customizations will help you get stronger and explore further into the cave.
|Farm Together||It’s like a virtual community garden…in early access. In Farm Together, you’ll grow crops, raise animals, and construct and maintain buildings, unlocking new items as you advance. But you don’t have to do it alone; multiplayer farms can be set up for anyone to join, or just your friends.|
And whether you’re farming by yourself or with neighbors, the game advances even when you’re not playing. Check back in and there are sure to be some chores to attend to. I’d say the game allows you to live the simple life, but you and I both know there’s nothing simple about farming.
|Games||Name||About||Release date||Genre||Status||New entries only?|

|MXGP3||If you’ve been wondering what Virtual Programming has been up to, they’ve been quietly working on MXGP3: The Official Motocross Videogame. It’s been a long time since macOS got a proper Motocross game and MXGP3 seems to be the real deal.|
Already released on Windows, MXGP3 features completely new gameplay and graphics thanks to Unreal Engine 4. You can race on the 18 official tracks with all riders and bikes from the 2016 MXGP and MX2 seasons. And if that’s not enough for you, you can also customize your rider and bike with over 300 official components.
|Frostpunk||From the creators of the stellar This War of Mine comes Frostpunk, a city-survival game set in a frozen world. In Frostpunk, people have developed a steam-powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold and it will be your job to create a city that can outlive it.|
Frostpunk is about fighting the elements and facing tough ethical decisions as you form a society. The concept here sounds similar to This War of Mine’s, except Frostpunk will be a much bigger game. This War of Mine was built by 12 people; Frostpunk is being worked on by 60.
|Tropico 6||El Presidente is coming back! The beloved dictatorship simulator will return next year and will bring with it the gameplay and mechanics you would expect from the city-building series.|
This time though, you’ll also be able to play on archipelagos, send agents on raids to steal world wonders and monuments, build new transportation and infrastructure (you can finally build a bridge!), customize the look of your palace, give election speeches, and more.

|The Walking Dead: The Final Season||Every franchise Telltale Games touches turns into gold. They are doing it with Batman, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Minecraft, The Game of Thrones, and others. They are all good adventure games with amazing story-telling, but nothing comes close to their take on The Walking Dead.|
It seems that epic story will be concluded soon, as Telltale recently revealed The Walking Dead: The Final Season. This final entry shall focus on Clementine once again. Let us hope they’ll be able to deliver a satisfying conclusion worthy of their best games so far.

This a really fast game where every second really counts. Now, we don’t know if Sociable Soccer will ultimately make it to macOS, but thanks to your efforts, it could.
The Wolf Among Us 2GAdventureenre
|The Wolf Among Us 2||After three years and many, many requests, Telltale Games finally announced that The Wolf Among Us 2 is happening and is coming to macOS next year. And given the success the first game had, I’m not surprised fans wanted more.|
Bigby Wolf, the hero of the first game, will return and you can expect him to face tougher and tougher choices. New episodes will arrive in late 2018 and will feature a new “standalone” story, meaning that Telltale sadly won’t explore the first game’s finale tease.
In The Valley of GodsAdventure
|In The Valley of Gods||From the creators of Firewatch, In the Valley of Gods is a single-player first-person adventure. Explore a remote and ancient valley in the Egyptian desert, uncovering treasure and treachery in pursuit of a discovery that could bring you fame and fortune—or leave you for dead, buried beneath the sands.||2019|

Available on Alpha.
|Ylands||Ylands is a sandbox game that will captivate you by its beautiful polygon graphics. It comes from the same team behind Arma 3 and will let you create a completely modifiable island.||Unknown|
|Hot Lava||Hot Lava is a parkour-survival game from the creators of Don't Starve. Hot Lava is inspired by a game you may have played as a child: The floor is made of molten lava, and if you step on it, you die!||Unknown|
Keep in mind that this is a work in progress and all your suggestions are welcome. I will do my best to update it at least once per week, but I will need your help.
