- Half Life 2: Deathmatch
- Half Life 2: Lost Coast
- Left 4 Dead
- Left 4 Dead 2
- Heros of Newerth

- World of Goo (by former Electronic Arts employees)
Valve’s other top video games, such as Portal 2 are expected in the future as a simultaneous Mac and pc release, with cross-platform license.
“Signed Up” For Steam Game Platform Mac OS X Beta?
Awhile ago Valve’s Steam Mac OS X beta signup URL was leaked, however it was later discovered that Valves filters the signup so only those invited to the beta would be approved.
But seems that people didn’t catch that news. So, if you have “signed up” for the Valve / Steam Mac OS X beta, don’t hold your breath.
Yes, the Steam Mac client beta client is leaked, but you can’t do anything with it without an account authorized for the beta.
