icon DROD The Second Sky unplayable on Mac / Steam (+2)  
I bought DROD The Second Sky through Steam on the Mac. The game is unplayable from “Somewhere under the sea” onwards — the game simply crashes and cannot be restarted (it just crashes again when I restart).

I see that I am not the first person to have this problem on the Mac, and that there was a similar problem on Windows.

Has this problem been fixed on the Mac? What can I do to get either a working version of the game, or a refund (Steam refused; no response so far from support@caravelgames).

Thanks for any advice!

Currently, the only feasible way around this would be to install DROD on a Windows machine, play past the affected room, and then go back to your original machine. It's not ideal, I'm aware.

On the refund side of things, if Steam hasn't done the decent thing, you're probably out of luck. Really, the game shouldn't be offered for Mac given the fact that it doesn't actually work, but Valve is incredibly lax on these kind of things. Unfortunately, the lead DROD developer decided to spend some time away from the game, but neglected to upload a fixed Mac version to Steam. Also I can really do is suggest the above solution and shrug.

Can Caravel provide a copy of the non-Steam version to folks affected by this issue?

That's disappointing. Does this issue affect all Macs? Are Caravel Games aware of the issue?

I'm not sure who's still around from the core team that can take care of this. I cannot handle a refund for you but I can give you access to the Caravel version of TSS. You'll receive an e-mail shortly with a link. Hope that solves the issue for you!

Any chance of a working Mac version of GatEB, seeing as the Steam version has no sound (see /viewtopic.php?TopicID=41511 )? Thanks.
