Pick up four brilliant Double Fine adventures for free this weekend, playable on macOS Catalina for the very first time.
Double Fine, Tim Schafer’s legendary adventure game studio recently acquired by Xbox, has been remastering its back catalogue over the years. Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango have all received the spit-and-polish treatment, bringing these classic adventures to a new audience, a whole new generation of players.
But if you recently upgraded your Apple Mac to macOS Catalina, you might have found they no longer worked. To be fair, you’ll have found lots of things stopped working. Indie development Twitter is filled with horror stories of games that suddenly broke on Catalina, while the economics to put it right often doesn’t stack up.
Thankfully, Double Fine has managed to find the time to fix the issue, and those classic remasters – Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango – plus the more-recent Broken Age have all been fixed up and ported to macOS Catalina.
To celebrate, Double Fine is making these games free for Mac users for a limited time. You can pick up Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango and Broken Age from the Apple Mac app store for absolutely nothing until the end of the day on Sunday, July 12.
(They’ll be back up to full price on Monday, but they’ll still be brilliant.)
