Major Site Update for Mac Gamers (and a sale too!)

Posted by Conor Murphy on November 25, 2009

We’re happy to announce a major site update for our Mac users! We’re working hard to bring our Mac game offerings up to par with our PC line. It has taken some time, but our first major initiative is now live and we couldn’t be more excited. Now, when visiting Big Fish Games, the site will recognize if you are on a Mac and move you along to the Mac home page. Once the page loads you’ll see it uses the same layout as the standard PC Game Downloads home page, but features only games available for the Mac. Basically, we now offer a Mac Games version of the home page that takes you directly to Mac versions of our games. Of course, you can still switch to the PC version of the site by clicking on the PC Game Downloads tab. In fact, you can switch between Mac and PC at will by clicking on the tabs. Power to the user!Read more
