Hi Michael, Well, I'm afraid you are pretty much looking at a fairly short list. As you probably already know most accessible game developers program exclusively for Windows so games for the Mac tend to be rather slim. However, let me tell you what I do know is available.
Text Adventures You can play a number of Inform and Adrift text adventures using Zoom and Scare. I don't have a Mac, so I can't tell you how well this works, but I do know some blind Mac gamers have successfully played a lot of text adventures on Mac OS. Online RPGs there are a few online web-based RPG games like Srith and Kingdom of Loathing that work fairly well with Safari. If you are into that kind of thing I'd definitely point Safari at http://www.sryth.com and try it out. Gamebook Adventures There are a number of decent gamebook adventures that have been converted to html. You can easily download them, unzip them to your hard drive, and read them in Safari. All you need is a dice rolling program and perhaps a text document to keep track of your stats etc. 7128 Games A year or so back 7128 released a Mac OS version of their accessible gamebook. You can purchase a number of games for it like the Inspector Cindy Murder Mysteries, the Popcorn Games, etc. They are pretty decent if you are into gamebook style adventures. Visit there website http://www.7128.com for more details. SoundRTS Since SoundRTS is written in pure Python it can successfully be run on Mac OS. The only catch 22 is you have to make sure you have Python 2.4 installed and PyGame for 2.4. That's a bit old, but SoundRTS is technically playable on Mac OS. In terms of accessible games that's pretty much what is available right now. There certainly isn't anything like Tank Commander, Shades of Doom, or anything like that yet. I do know Draconis is secretly working on some games for Mac, but we haven't heard much from them on what their plans are or when/if they will be released. I've got a couple of productions such as STFC 2.0 that will be Mac OS compatible, but no release date for the project. So in terms of gaming Mac OS is a totally new fronteer.
