How to play Deponia on Mac OS X without login into Steam

by on Mar.30, 2013, under Gaming

This is my solution for playing the game Deponia on your Mac system without being logged in to Steam (NoSteam, NoCD, NoDVD fix).

1. Open up the Terminal
2. Type the following console command:

ln -s /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Deponia/ /Users/USERNAME/Desktop/

Make sure to replace USERNAME with your actual username. If the command returns nothing it means it was executed successfully. After entering the command properly you’ll get a new icon on your Desktop which allows you to play Deponia without being connected to Steam.

The reason this works is because the original Deponia desktop shortcut automatically launched Steam (because it started the game indirectly via Steam) whereas my shortcut launches the game directly. Fortunately no actual modification/crack is required for the OS X version (as for the time being). 🙂
