How to play Wild Season on Mac

Game summary

Wild Season is a farming simulation game that is inspired by the likes of Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, Rune Factory and Thousand Arms. Although it shares many of the same concepts and mechanics, Wild Season differentiates itself in its approach to these same ideas. The game revolves around the main character (you), who finds an restate ad for a beautiful farm after a few weeks of being down on her luck; however, she soon figures out the actually run-down farm should have never been for sale in the first place. The player now finds herself in a seemingly hostile town where one mystery seems to just stack on another... Wild Season Build v0.5.4.14 just went live and on early access on Steam!

Play Wild Season on Mac with Parallels (virtualized)

The easiest way to play Wild Season on a Mac is through Parallels, which allows you to virtualize a Windows machine on Macs. The setup is very easy and it works for Apple Silicon Macs as well as for older Intel-based Macs.

Parallels supports the latest version of DirectX and OpenGL, allowing you to play the latest PC games on any Mac. The latest version of DirectX is up to 20% faster.

Our favorite feature of Parallels Desktop is that when you turn off your virtual machine, all the unused disk space gets returned to your main OS, thus minimizing resource waste (which used to be a problem with virtualization).

Wild Season installation steps for Mac
