You have to repurchase. Similar to a game for XBox or Playstation.

It is very possible that you will end up with a virtual PC running Windows on your Mac. There are quite a few good ones, form Boot Camp (not virtual) to VMWare Fusion (the one I use), and Parallels. This will allow you to run the PC version "on" your Mac, and I run all my Matrix game in this fashion.

The money you might spend on multiple copies of a game can be applied to the cost of the virtual machine of your choice.

On Slitherine we offer a reduced rate to convert from PC to Mac - $10 I think. This doesnt issue a new serial just a new installer and you use the current serial. We've not had time to set this up yet on Matrix.

Hi Ian,

Does this apply just for BA or for all PC games that have a Mac equivalent?

I have Unity of Command PC which I purchased here in Matrix Games. Would I be able to get the Mac version at the reduced rate if I get the Mac version on Slitherine's website?

Yes when its set up. I'll add this to the list! The Slitherine/Matrix versions are exactly the same now. Only our historical installers differ.
