Recommend a Mac game for a Monkey Island fan?!

An adventure game type thingie.

Nothing massively challenging (brain not big enough) but sufficiently challenging to last more than one afternoon.

Thanks

well, you could install crossover so you could get steam. The you could get portal through steam. If you want (highly recommend it), you could get it in the orange box (half life 2, both expansion packs, Portal, Team fortress 2) which is really worth it.

Not really adventure games

But you could follow that Crossover advice and try to get the new Sam & Max games from Telltale Games to run, there are a bunch of episodes but you can get the entire Season 1 plus some video content for $30.

I love the Monkey Island series as well. If you have an intel mac and can run bootcamp, may I suggest The Longest Journey. It is a great adventure game, although a little dated. Lucas Arts, the creators of Monkey Island, also came out with a slapstick adventure game a while back called Grim Fandago, might want to check that one out as well. In addition Bone: The Great Cow Race is a good adventure game for the PC.
