Game Details:

Welcome to the “Banished” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Banished in a few very simple steps (which even a noob can understand) so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using Crossover. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. Or use the Porting Kit alternative.

I recommend the GOG.com version which works out of the box (DRM free). Click on the links mentioned here, create an account using the signup in the top bar on the GOG.com website and buy the game. You automatically get when creating an account 14 free GOG games added to your account so you have nothing to loose, only to receive!

Banished For Mac Download

Use this CrossTie… to install the GOG game into Crossover
Make sure Crossover is installed before downloading/running the CrossTie. Or use Porting Kit.

Important 27″ iMac workaround:
When having a 27″ iMac the game will crash on launch because it takes over the desktop resolution (which is high!) and then runs out of video memory. The workaround is to go to the regedit (rightclick wrapper –> show package content –> wineskin–> advanced –> tools –> regedit –> navigate to the hkey_curent_user/software/shining Rock Software LLC/Banished) and change the strings “VideoWidth” to “800” and “VideoHeight” to “600”. Then the game will launch and you will able to change resololution to the second highest resolution and play fine. However, everytime you close the game FIRST change back the resolution to 800×600 or 1024×768 or the game won’t launch again. Its a nasty workaround for 27″ iMacs but for now the only solution.

Game Description:
Banished is a city building game where you control a group of exiled people who are restarting their lives in the wilderness. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland. The townspeople work, build, get older, have children, and eventually die. Keeping them healthy, happy, and fed are essential to making a successful town grow. Any structure can be built at any time, provided that your people have collected the resources to do so.

Instruction video

Update: Its seemed that the Wrapper worked fine on Nvidia but not on AMD Radeon and Intel Graphics Macs. Fixed that part now with the latest wrapper update of Banished! Works now on Intel Graphics, AMD Radeon and Nvidia! Enjoy!!

On request and just out for 2 days: Banished! Build a city with any layout you want with almost no restriction on when, what, and where you build. Keep the population happy and healthy by providing them with food and warm shelter. Watch the town grow as you assign 20 different jobs to build buildings, grow food, craft tools and clothing, and more! The game doesn’t work in Crossover yet so I made Wrapper for it. Crossover will stay primary on the site, but that doesn’t mean I won’t make any Wrappers now and then :). I won’t make for each game a new video anymore, only when some specific instructions are needed. Normally its just very basic: extract –> install game into wrapper –> set the start executable and play! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Banished on GOG.com which is DRM free. Check out the trailer below to get introduced to the game!
