I’m a little late here, but Feral Interactive recently released the Life is Strange Complete Season on the Mac App Store.
Life is Strange for Mac was originally released in 2016, but this is the first time you can grab the Complete Season (including all 5 episodes) on the Mac App Store:
Developed by studio DONTNOD and published by Square Enix, Life is Strange is an award-winning adventure game that allows the player to rewind time and affect the past, present, and future. The game follows the story of Max Caufield, a photography senior that can rewind time and will have to use that power to save her friend.
Life is Strange was well-received by critics and has an overwhelmingly positive score on Steam with more than 107,000 reviews. Impressive. You can’t go wrong with this game.
But what about the MacOS version?
As you can see from that video, this is one of the few modern action games that don’t have demanding system requirements. We confirmed this during our Performance Review where we tested the game on 6 different Mac models. Just make sure you meet the game’s minimum system requirements before making a purchase:
- Processor: 1.8GHz
- RAM: 4GB
- Graphics: 512MB
- OS: 10.11
- Free Space: 15GB
The game is officially supported on the following Macs:
- All MacBook Airs released since Mid 2012*
- All 13” MacBook Pros released since Mid 2012*
- All 15” & 17″ MacBook Pros released since Mid 2010 with a 512Mb graphics card or better
- All Mac Minis released since Late 2012*
- All iMacs released since Early 2009 with a 512Mb graphics card or better
- All Mac Pros released since Early 2009
*HD4000 & HD5000 cards require at least 8GB of System Memory.
MacBooks released since Early 2016 are capable of running the game but do not consistently meet the standards required for official support.
