Gaming and the Mac - Is it still the ‘black sheep’ of the gaming world… and more

Presenter: Richard Moss, journalist, historian & freelance writer

Fresh from publishing his book The Secret History of Mac Gaming, which is based on 80 new interviews and extensive archival research, Richard Moss will share a selection of his favourite stories behind the likes of Dark Castle, Crystal Quest, Escape Velocity, Myst, The Manhole, Shufflepuck Café, Marathon, Alice aka Through the Looking Glass (the only game Apple ever published commercially), and Glider, among others, and he'll discuss how and why the Mac became regarded as the black sheep of the gaming world.

You can find more information about the book at its official website https://secrethistoryofmacgaming.com

Richard will also devote approximately the final third of his talk to tips and tricks and general advice for finding awesome old Mac games and getting them running today, be it on current hardware or on any older Macs you might have lying around, so that you can enjoy the wonders they have to offer all over again — or perhaps for the first time!
