By ming, 18 January, 2023 Forum macOS and Mac Apps hi! all, anyone of you playgames or PC games on Mac OS system especially MM1 or M2 CPU's Mac? someone told me that we can install steam on Mac OS system. does it work well? Options Log in or register to post comments Comments Hi, Yes, we can install… Hi, Yes, we can install steam on Mac however the games need to be Mac compatible. One game that springs to mind is sequence storm, you can play it on windows but you can't play it on Mac and, sadly the developer has no intention, last I asked, to port it to Mac. There is always a virtual machine such as parallels however, with such games as sequence storm, latency could be an issue. I'm sure others have more experience with this but every time I've looked at playing anything interesting, shadow of the vale, mist world, a heroes call, and the upcoming Last Of Us part 1, it's always been a pain getting the VM working. I'm not confident with windows anyway, but running it in a virtual environment does seem to make it a bit more difficult. I'm going to follow this thread as I'd like to hear other people's experiences with this. SUBJECT how about cloud gaming. like X Cloud. pr ps+ cloud gaming has only inaccessible games. or is inaccessible by itself. how to set up steam on mac? There are games such as sea… There are games such as sea of thieves that can be played with Xbox Cloud which some blind gamers enjoy. This can be played through safari on Mac or iPhone, no dedicated app at the moment. These, however, are mainstream games with some accessibility added so your mileage may vary. Regarding installing steam on Mac, I think you'll have to use VOCR, google it, it's an add on for VoiceOver that allows optical character recognition, it's very useful. However, as I said, I don't think there are any games on steam for Mac that are accessible. There are titles such as The Vale, Sequence Storm and Skull Girls that are accessible games but they only work on windows machines. I'm sorry I don't have better news. I, like you, would like to be able to play some big and interesting games. I think, as it stands, you'll need a windows machine to do so. Mac isn't a very good gaming computer, despite the power of the chips in it. Think it's something to do with limitations in graphics capability, therefore all studios build for windows/xbox and Sony playstation. First time on Apple vis I havn't heard of any of those games. RS games is it for me now. steam on Mac? anyone try to install gaming plactforms like steam on Mac MacOS gaming The number of games available for blind users of Macs seems very small, and is perhaps even smaller for those who want to play natively on Mac. Last I heard, the Steam client for Mac had serious accessibility issues, but that may have changed. There are certainly games that can be played natively on Mac. World of Warcraft Classic can, and if you grab the accessibility mod that's being developed for this game and have a full sized keyboard, there shouldn't be any serious issues. There aren't a lot of audiogames available, sadly. I play A Hero's Call and several other games on a virtual machine on my Intel Mac, but it's not I would call an ideal solution. @ Tayo Just curious, but since you mentioned world of warcraft beeing playable on mac with the mod natively... Do you know if hearthstone is playable on mac as well via the mod natively on mac without need for a vertual machine? Hearthstone and Windows Unfortunately, the Hearthstone mod was developed exclusively for Windows, with no plans to develop one for Mac or any other platform, as far as I know. I dearly wish I could play Hearthstone on my Mac; the game would run much more more smoothly on my Mac than it does on my mediocre Windows machine. Another option is to install… Another option is to install the Epic Games Store app on your Mac. Every week they give away at least one game for free. Unfortunately most of the time they are for Windows only, but every once in a while you'll be able to snag one that supports the Mac also. Gog.com also has a Mac client. They give away free games also but much more infrequently.
