Mac support isn't recognized in the itch.io client

I'll preface this by saying I know Apple doesn't make it easy for indie devs, so I appreciate all the ones that try to port their games over.

I'm running macOS 10.4.1 but I can't seem to get the mac demo to work. I can get past the codesign warning, but then I'm stuck on a nw.js window that just flashes the nw.js text over and over and doesn't load the game itself.  Looks like this:


Also, even though the system requirements list and purchase info indicate a mac version is available, itch doesn't seem to think so:


The "Buy now" button is disabled when using the mac itch.io client.

The demo screenshot above was from directly downloading from the website.  If I try to download the mac demo from within the itch client (now updated to v25), the "Select" box is empty and I get an error that there are no compatible downloads.  Is the mac tag missing from the itch store/game link?

Thank you for pointing out the "not available" issue. It seems that with the latest game update I did not mark the builds properly in the itch.io settings. It's fixed now.

Due to internal engine compatibility, unfortunately the game only works with Mac OS 10.9 and up. We had a topic about it recently and added system requirements to the description.

Thanks, I'm able to download and play the demo now!  (Meant to say I have 10.14.1 but somehow dropped a 1 from there.)
