It's a slow season for new releases and most of us should have already played our holiday games, so can we make this happen?
Can everybody who wants in manage to get a copy over the weekend and get started?

Does a port exist on the Mac?

I would love to but I'm just getting started on my holiday games (Fable 2, Fallout 3, Saints Row 2, etc.), partly due to &#^%*&! RROD in mid December.

Never came out on mac, but a little googling reveals a lot of fan-made options... not all of them great... http://zeade.livejournal.com/29926.html

Is Gametap Mac-compatible? It used to be on there.

I may just download it and play it on my wife's PC. <groan>

Here's where this forum runs into issues: we can't give links to find pirated wares here and explaining how to do it seems a bit beyond what this board should be about. Suffice it to say, minimal google-fu should point you in the right direction; if you'd like to buy, try: http://www.grim-fandango.com/where_to_buy.php

Eh. I gave it a go, really wanted to enjoy it, but realised I was sooo over this kind of 'stick the masking tape on the catflap to get some black fur that you can use as a moustache' random guessathon gameplay. Plus I found the interface annoying.

for some reason I can't install the game on my PC, the setup wizard just hangs :-(

Just a heads up, there's an underwater puzzle towards the end that involves a chain that's actually impossible to complete (something about being based on processor speed?). If you do your googling you'll find remedies.
