Download WIP Port Cart Life: A Retail Simulation for Windows 1.0

- - - - - Please vote for the Quality of this Port / Wrapper, not for the Game or Application!

And now for Mac!

In Cart Life, the player starts by selecting their character. Which path will you choose? Will it be Androus, the Ukranian emigrant, who has come to America with naught but $2000 in his pocket and his faithful cat, Mr. Glimbovsky? Whose dream is to own and operate a newspaper stand in the midst of a bustling city. Or will it be single mom Melanie? Who must make enough money at a coffee stand to convince the custody judge that she is able to take care of her daughter, Laura. In both of these situations the player must balance the characters health, as well as their businesses health. This includes setting a competitive price for product, avoiding the loss of merchandise, feeding themselves, and managing their assets.

Personal Notes:
I included the game files in the wrapper with this port, so you are good to go. Please note that I have ported this game using the freeware version of the game, so it does not include Vinny the Bagel Vendor, however, this does mean that anyone can download this port. If you would like to download the "Everything Edition", you may visit the developers website. I set the default screen options to fullscreen, some players may find this undesirable as the games resolution is in 640x480, to fix this simply change the screen options in the wineskin. Lastly, the application icon is Mr. Glimbovsky, isn't he cute? I made it myself so feel free to praise it incessantly ;).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Andrus' story is unplayable at this time. The game crashes at the beginning due to a fatal exception, this is caused by a bug in the game itself, so I will be on the lookout for patches from the developer. However, Melanie's story seems playable, so please enjoy that in the meantime.

My System Specs:
- OS:    Mac OSX 10.7.5
- CPU: Core i7 2.7GHz
- RAM: 8GB
- Video:    Intel HD3000
- Disk Space:   603MB

Known Issues:
You cannot play as Andrus due to a fatal error. This error seems a little more dubious than I previously thought. Here is a forum post by a windows user experiencing the same issue. It appears that the mod is similarly confounded by the error, so it looks like this may not be fixed in the foreseeable future.

Download, extract, play.

Hey thanks a lot for this wrapper!
One issue I'm having is that the game crashes when I try to start a new game as Androus.  Melanie's story works fine so far, with a minor bug that makes the coffee stand disappear if I choose to place it at Florin's Gate Park.
If you have any insight, that would be awesome.

Ok, I'll take a look at this, though I have read that people are experiencing issues when playing this game on windows, so it could just be bugs with the game to begin with. But I will try playing through the game a bit more and seeing what there is to see.

EDIT: Yeah, I took a look at that, not sure how I missed it. The error message talks of a fatal exception, which usually has to do with the game itself, not the wrapper, I'll make note that Andrus' story is unplayable, and will keep an eye out for new game versions from the developer that will hopefully fix the issue.

EDIT 2.0: I have decided to move this port to works in progress until such a time that this major bug can be resolved. As this bug makes literally half the game unplayable, forcing the user to play as Melanie. I will be keeping an eye on the developer's website for updates. Until then, please enjoy what parts of the game are actually playable.
thanks a lot!
This is awesome! Thank you so much for this!
Good port. Thanks very much dewd
the game crashes from the begening i even can't launch it.... The marvelous icons of the cat is in the dock but nothing happens, do I have to install an other program before ? (sorry I'm new)
Yep! Crashes for me at launch. I checked the error logs, something to do with the wine libraries. The Mr Lebrowski icon more than makes up for it though.
I've Also been crashing at launch, but I've found a work around. Go into the original files contents, then the second, and then open wineskin. Then hit advanced and hit "Test run", Hope it helps!
Dead link :'(
I played through as Andrus without any problem at all.  Seems to all work perfectly.
I have the same problem that was stated before, the game won't launch... anyone knows what to do? Selecting "Test Run" in the wineskin app won't do anything either except for showing me some error logs that say "Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.".
