Pandora is a multi-format game (PC, Mac & Linux) with a multi format master. You get all formats in one package and a serial number that works for all formats and no intrusive DRM so you can install on your Mac and your PC. If you buy the boxed edition it will come with all formats as well.

Developed by Proxy Studios (www.proxy-studios.com), Pandora: First Contact is a science fiction 4X turn-based strategy game on a planetary scale.

In the future, factions have risen up from opportunities and ideologies independent of governments. Private corporations and religious movements have started wars over greed, ideology and power. Many have died and many lands lay in ruin. Planet Earth has been exhausted and colonial attempts on other planetary bodies have been in vain.

Finally, after decades of exploration, an interstellar probe has brought promise of a new world many light-years away. The most powerful factions have gathered their best men and women to send on a long journey to Pandora. Far from desolate, the earth-like planet has been found to host a plethora of indigenous life forms. While the gigantic monstrosities inland and at the oceans seem relatively calm, human-sized bugs and fungus are threatening to stop mankind's expansion.

As the various factions strive to take control, each will research and develop numerous new technologies, discovering new weapons and industry, whilst opening trade agreements and forging alliances with other factions to gain a foothold.
As they spread, they will discover ancient ruins and artifacts from alien civilizations that will grant them advantages over their rivals.  

Pandora latest update also contains a whole new expansion

Ages ago an ancient civilization – the Messari – left Pandora to conquer other territories in the galaxy. Now this aggressive alien faction is back to recover its property and clean their planet from the Human invasion! In the later stage of the game, the Messari will land on Pandora and attack the stronger factions as a priority. Thanks to advanced weapons like tanks, gigantic mechs and motherships, they will change the balance of power on Pandora. They will also gradually try to infest the planet by changing the landscape and generate dangerous ion storms to make the environment even more hostile and merciless!
