I don't want to pay money for gaming.
For studying yes not for gaming.
Cheers!

People who so blatantly say they don't want to pay money, have no leg to stand on when either nothing is released, or it may be a game they don't want to play or are not interested in. Having said this, the Mac is woefully underdeveloped. Windows by the mainstream sense is heavily adopted. So the Mac gets it's loyal fans who do their best but again, little progress is made. Now using a Mac myself, I will say that i have no loyalty toward any operating system. If it works for you in daily life, fabulous. I was just hoping since we were thrown into lockdown for weeks on end, something would happen. so far, we're screwed over like always. Also, if it's a game i enjoy, like music, I support the artist, or developer not the corporate money hungry thieves like Apple.

4 games spring to mind. The first one is aliens, which is browser-based, and is based on the game which was originally written for the eureka A4 notetaker. The link is http://files.jantrid.net/aliens/ Then, there is haunted house, from the same developer who brought us mine racer, "System Fault", from the same developer who brought us "Onslaught", and "Lucky Strike" by Oriel Gomez, which you can download from the itch.io site. I am surprised the latter 3 games have not been mentioned on here previously as there are Mac versions for all of them.

I hope we can have something exciting accessible games coming for this ye ar.
and I don't mind it is a paid one.
because every developer should have their weward. and they are really working hard to develop something to us.

There have been rumblings about apple getting into the VR/AR/MR space for a while now. Considering that most VR sets are based on gaming and that apple's offering to the gaming market is pretty weak, it will be interesting to see if apple, in some way at least, becomes a more viable gaming company. If so, this could be good for us. Obviously, any of the VR/AR/MR products that come out won't be much use to us, at least not at first, but if games are using spcial audio as a feature, it might trickle down into more emersive games for people such as ourselves... Something like beacons that we could follow in a 3d audio space might work similar to the last of us part II.

either way, there should be developments across all platforms. It's been slow but there seems to be a growing momentum to mainstream games including accessibility solutions. Whether apple's offerings are even game based or even have accessibility built in, I have no idea, but people like microsoft and playstation are working harder on it each year.

Another solution for all those good games on windows is using a VM on your mac. I've got parallels on my 2020 MBA and it runs very well indeed. it's far better than fusion in terms of performance however the install is annoying for those of us who can't see.

... And for those who like to pop up and say, "I don't want to pay for anything", grow up or clam up. This is how the world works.

talking Reality OS
I think it still need sometime to start and work with it.
but, it is quite interesting as well.
