Title: 64-bit versions of our favorite games?
Post by: Thunderforge on November 20, 2017, 09:24:32 PM
I have Pangea Arcade, Nanosaur 2, and a few other games purchased at the Mac App Store, and I've noticed that they are 32-bit. Apple has stated that High Sierra (the current version of macOS) will be the last version to support 32-bit software (https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=06282017a) without compromise.

Will we be seeing 64-bit versions of our favorite games so that we can play them on the next version of macOS and beyond?

Unfortunately, there is no way to recompile those games for 64-bit because they are Carbon.  Updating them to Cocoa would be a huge undertaking, and that's the only way to get them to recompile because Apple took Carbon support out of Xcode a few years ago.
