Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Now for Mac!

The game is a Steamplay title now and for a little more than another 24 hours as of this writing there is a bundle deal with the game and its DLCs for 10 bucks or if you prefer, just the game itself for $7.50. It's normally twice that.

I noticed the DLCs are not flagged as being Steamplay and I posted a question about this on the Steam forum but have not gotten a reply yet. I suspect it is just an oversight but I could be wrong of course. If I don't find out in time I think I'm going to go for the bundle anyway and hope for the best. The worst thing that can happen is a I contribute an extra $2.50 to the cause of a developer who chose to support the Mac with the main game at least.

Now we need a Mac version of Path of Exile! I did post a request for that in the relevant Steam forum and one of the developers was nice enough to reply and say it was under consideration but they couldn't say more at this time. So I am hopeful!

So far there's an Amazing Fan MAC Port for Path of Exile.

I was playing all through the Beta using it, and it worked extremely well on my old 15" MacBook Pro.

You can play with the DLC-s too, for some reason they haven't got the Steam Play logo yet, but they will.

Thank you for pointing that out. I'd gotten that confirmed on Steam as well and hadn't gotten around to visiting here with the updated info. That was a nice plus. It was also sweet that it was 50% off on the day it launched for Mac.

I'd expect to see this on sale again during the upcoming Steam holiday sales for anyone that missed it.

Thanks for pointing this out too. Is this over on The Porting Team site or somewhere else? I guess I could check AppDB and roll my own if it is known to work but if somebody else has already done the work I might as well capitalize on that.

The porting team one is a different port,

This one is much better. I played it extensively when the game was still in Beta on my old macbook pro, and it ran fantastically!

Thanks. I just saved that thread to my sidebar in Safari to review later. I'll give that a try at some point.
