http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Games, Apple Anyone that tells you 'Mac OS X is a viable gaming platform!!!' is obviously deluded. Crazy and deluded. Apple doesn't make a secret of their distaste for games either -- at least on their desktops and laptops. Maybe that's all about to change though. Maybe, with their new-found love of games on the iPhone and iPod touch, we're about to see a rebirth of games on Mac OS X... with the help of STEAM! As we covered yesterday, there's a new, massively-overhauled Steam client currently in beta testing. As always with enthusiastic gamers, it didn't take long for someone to hack at the files of the new software and discover signs of a potential Mac OS X client. If the screenshot above isn't big enough to make out the Mac OS X widgets, check out some larger images: screenshot 1, screenshot 2. Pretty damning evidence of an in-the-works Mac client, in my opinion! Will the beta that they're currently running eventually extend to Mac users? More importantly, will Steam start stocking more than just a handful of games that will run on Mac OS X?
