where can i find some mac demos for osx
Apple's gaming section is a cool place to start.
There is a lack of game demos for Mac. It's quite stupid really. I've seen this situation happen a lot:
- User looks for demo of game but doesn't find one
- User has heard good reviews so buys game anyway
- Game performs horribly on user's system
- A new game comes out
- Again, no demo
- User then pirates game to see how well it runs
- "I already have the game now, so why should I buy it?"
Apparently the Halo demo has boosted sales. Hopefully the game publishers will notice that demos are a good thing.
Another source for demos, shareware, updates, etc....
Mac game files
check version tracker , occasionally I've seen demo's and game updates there before they make it to macgamesfiles
I hate not being able to try a demo before buying. Anyway it's irritating since making a demo doesn't require much effort (you already wrote the whole game, right?).
The Inside Mac Games website has links to demos of the games it reviews/previews, so you can read about the game, then download the demo.
