Porting Request:
I LOVED this game as a kid. It was like a spookier version of Myst. I actually prefered it to Myst myself. I've been looking for a mac port for a long time with no luck.

Game Description:
Shivers is a single-player horror-themed PC adventure game, released on CD-ROM by Sierra On-line on September 30, 1995. It was developed with Sierra's Creative Interpreter.

On myabandonware.com you can found two version for this game:

Shivers for dos (pc)

Shivers for mac (i don't know if it works with actuals macs)

However if you use the dos version* you can play it with this dos emulator:

Boxer: the dos game emulator for mac...

it's very simple to use...


*EDIT: by reading some comments regarding the Dos version, they coming to tell that the game wasn't a dos version but a Windows version, so I think a wrapper is needed... sorry

This game is for Windows311 and it is 16 bits. I am not sure if wine can support it.

maybe then, better to directly download the Mac version of the game, and eventually use a ppc emulator to play:
