Game Description:
Dead Space for PC begins when a massive mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes in contact with a mysterious alien artifact and suddenly loses its communications with Earth. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura's communications, but arrives to find a floating vessel that has become a complete bloodbath. The crew is mutilated and infected with an ancient alien scourge.
Clarke's repair mission is transformed to one of survival as he fights to save himself and return the artifact to the planet at any cost.

Personal Notes
This is playable on lower end graphics cards (like my X1600) although all graphics selections on the advanced graphics section has been turned off or set to the lowest possible settings. An increase of advanced graphics cases lag on lower end cards. Keep everything off and the game runs very smooth. There have also been reports of the game crashing when VSync is set to off however I have not come across this issue with this particular port. The latest DirectX9 Distributable has been installed in this wrapper and all d3dx9_XX.dll's have been set to native. I was having issues when using Winetrick's d3dx9 files

Minimum System Requirements:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard / Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
- CPU: Intel Core Duo
- RAM:  2 GB
- Video: 128 MB vRAM, (256 vRAM Highly Recommended)
- about 8.5 GB Hard Drive Space required

Known Issues:
The mouse is not visible in the menus
Slight graphics corruption in certain spots (tested w/ ATI X1600)
Leaving VSync on cause major graphics lag on lower quality cards

Any chance we'll see a Wineskin port? I've been trying to port it for the longest time, but the mouse control always gets messed up in the end, even with winetricks. Everything else seems to work, only your character just can't turn left. And turning right would send you spinning round and round and round...

Never mind. A working Wineskin version has just been posted. Huzzah.

NEW LINK ONLINE / Hoster removed all ports!
