GamersGate on Wednesday announced a new online store specifically for Mac-compatible games. The company has also announced a partnership with TransGaming.
GamersGate is a digital distribution platform — a way to help gamers find games they want, buy them and download them — that’s already being used by PC gamers. The company counts more than 1,100 titles in its library (the vast majority of which are, of course, for PC gamers). It’s signed on companies like Ubisoft, EA, THQ and others.
The initial launch of the GamersGate store for Mac users includes the independently developed and published game World of Goo, along with titles created for the Mac by Virtual Programming, such as the Hearts of Iron strategy game series, Europa Universalis, FlatOut 2, and others. The company plans to add new titles on a regular basis.
By joining TransGaming’s GameTree Network, GamersGate will also gain access to titles TransGaming offers. TransGaming publishes Mac versions of games from EA, such as The Sims 3, Spore and others.
