    I was just browsing the Mac App Store and noticed that DeathSpank was released today for $10. I've been kind of interested in this game since it was released, and noticed it is also available on Steam for Mac as well, but for $15. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is any difference between the two versions (other than price)?

    Nothing, same game.

    You missed this on the top of the listing:

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't miss that it was a sale price, but didn't think it had any bearing on my question whether or not the gameplay was different.

    I inferred you though they might be different because it was cheaper on the App Store.

    The Steam version has SteamPlay (you get the windows version for free) Steam Achievements, and cloud support.

    And the feature that it probably doesn't wanna work when you aren't online.

    Never had issues with playing it with Steam in offline mode.

    Steam has an offline mode which works fine.

    It works a lot better than it used to.

    You used to have to be online to go into offline mode. A month ago, I found out on the Mac side that you don't need to be online to go into offline mode. You can be off the internet and go into offline mode.

    Just now, I tried it on Windows, and to my surprise, you don't need to be online in Windows to go into offline mode, either. You can be off the internet and start up in offline mode. I even launched a game to make sure it wasn't just a tease.

    Good stuff indeed.

    Ok, I stand corrected, but earlier offline mode was really not working at all. You had to put it into offline mode when online, and If your net was away one night, you couldn't play your games. It happened to me several times, although more than a year ago.

    I got it from MAS, have been wanting to play this game since it came out on 360. I really only chose MAS over Steam because I had a iTunes gift card. Super fun game, though, really enjoying it. That and Civ V keep my gaming interest enough. Just hoping for some newer games to get Mac support - especially Star Wars Old Republic!

    Price has been lowered to $6.99 on the MAS! Not sure when it started, or when it will end but the description says, "LAUNCH SALE OVER 50% OFF PURCHASE PRICE FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS ONLY!"
