This Land Is My Land is a popular open world survival craft game developed by Game-Labs. It was originally released for Windows on 20 Nov, 2019.

You still can't play This Land Is My Land on Mac because a native Mac version was never released, but you can play This Land Is My Land on Windows running inside Mac. Here's how.

What is This Land Is My Land?

Here's a quick description:

Experience the frontier as a chief of a Native American tribe and resist the onset of the settlers. Explore the vast world full of hostile humans and animals while defining your narrative through the decisions you make.

How to play This Land Is My Land using Parallels

Even if you don't have a PC, you can install Windows on your Mac using Parallels. Parallels is virtualization software with full support of DirectX and GPUs, which will give you a decent graphics performance. With a couple of clicks, you can install Windows 10 on Mac and ten switch between MacOS and Windows instantly. You can run Windows just like on a regular PC, install Steam and enjoy This Land Is My Land game on Mac.

Even though the virtualization is relatively easy to set up, it requires you to buy both Parallels and Windows licenses. Since you'll be running two operating systems side by side, you'll need to dedicate at least 20-30GB of disk space for this setup and also a strong machine to run both operating systems at the same time.

If you have an older Mac or have a Mac with an M1 chip which doesn't fully support virtualization yet, you might want to try a virtual computer running in the cloud such as Second Computer.

How to play This Land Is My Land using Second Computer

Alternatively, you can create a virtual computer in the cloud using Second Computer. Instead of license fee for Windows and Parallels, you pay by the hour (so it's much cheaper if you are using it infrequently) and you control the computer via a web browser. That means even if you have an older computer, you can run the latest games in the cloud without maxing out your processor or memory.

One added benfit is that since the computer is located in the cloud, you can access it from any device you own. So in theory you can play This Land Is My Land not just from your Mac, but also from your iPhone and Android device (it's not going to be a very nice experience though on such a small screen size).

Either way, Second Computer provides a nice alternative for running non-native Mac apps on your Mac by connecting to a computer in the cloud.

Happy gaming!

This game is a combo of Sniper Elite 4, mount and blade war band, and Risk. This is an absolute recommend to buy. This game is essentially a race against time. There a very few bugs, in my 268 hrs i have had 1 crash and 1 glitch that was annoying. The controls are intuitive and functional. What i have found disappointing is the lack of external you-tube videos which are all out of date that don't show current game aspects of player creation. That said the player creation is truly unique with names impacting your starting stats for you and your horse, which change on the 1st of the month (if you use the same name over again it will come with the same starting stats, provided you pick the same animal again). There are no videos saying how to win this game. Your goal is to drive the whiteman from your lands but the logistical how to is missing from any guides.... so i will give you the answer here. Target population centers and the logistical network. The game starts you in 1 village vs 2-4 towns. I have had the greatest success going straight for the enemy towns and knocking them out as quickly as possible, but you should not knock out the last town as a new one will pop up somewhere else. To win you will need 100% coverage of all lands with a strong village, and getting there will take about 48 hrs at a minimum to get to that point. You don't win by going out and doing all the killing yourself, you must command your tribe to do it. That said the game i won, I only killed 2 people... which were accidents. If you don't kill people but drug them and have your way with them in the woods, you will have good Karma. Good Karma gets you lots of manpower quickly vs killing every enemy. The enemy will get paranoid with better situational awareness and start hunting your villages if you have bad karma. Key to winning is developing your chief skills, things like improving your tribe abilities will be what you need to expand and take the map. Putting all your skill points in to combat skills will ultimately be fruitless as each skill you picks makes the next more costly. The enemy has different types of places which have logistical importance. Farms make food which serves as a driver of population growth and food serves a healing potion. Taking note of the food types your enemy is using will tell you if there is a farm in the area. Wood Camps give the enemy more construction material to build there towns, forts, farms, and wagons. No wood and they grow slower. Forts and bivouacs secure areas, and depending on the type can be a real tough nut to crack. Camps can hunt local animals. The enemy is populated like this 20-30 towns, 15-20 forts, Farms 15-20, Wood Camps 10-15, Camps 3-10, Patrols 5. If you don't get the enemy down to 1 town at the start of the game they will be able to out grow you when they have 30% of the map. You can play flawlessly and still lose if you don't control the expansion by targeted strikes, not every location needs an attack by you, you can order your braves to attack, and this is recommended for the small population locations. You should go after the tough nuts which would slaughter your braves like forts and towns. Bottom line I recommend you look at the reviews from players that have long and short amounts of playtime. The negative votes for this game have very little amounts of time because this game is tough. Getting dropped in combat gives the enemy more time to expand while you recover and that in itself is a game lose, you can try after that point but the effects are cumulative and will tilt you towards getting overrun. The save function for this game is only in an IRONMAN mode, no free for all save scumming here. If you are a casual gamer then again this game may not be for you. This game puts you up to your eyeballs running an insurgency and if you want to try that without going to Afghanistan then this is your game.

♥♥♥♥ AI is broken i keep trying to raid a camp and they can see me a mile away in thick brush when I'm squatting down. They have total 100% accuracy when I'm running away in a zig-zag and hit me for 1/4th my health when they're only level 2 and i have have health upgrades, my Indian war band won't shoot back, when i set them too. Along with the enemy Ai when they're riding wagons get stuck on rocks and mounds and unable to get them down so i can take it back to my camp to disassemble. i keep trying and trying to get back on and keep on playing but the only thing is, no matter what difficulty or settings i choose in the selection part of the game I can bairly make any progress because the AI wont allow me to do anything. also they don't go to sleep in most camps so its a fire fight all the time instead of a stealth game if you wanted to play that way. Shotguns don't have accuracy about 50% of the time along with repeaters that have 10 shots I used one to try and kill a guy on a horse and it killed his horse and did no damage to him and i died after finally burning down a camp the had seen me from a mile away so there was no stealth and completely screwed me over, and the Indian war band did nothing to help me, not even shield me from a bullet even though I was standing right behind on of them it just fazed right though and killed me.Also Big Logs/Cut Trees faze through rocks lol :p All in all i give it an 8/10 for return ability making me want to come back and play for the experienceI give it a 4/10 for game play performance and too many game breaking glitches/bugs and I'm pretty sure it came out a year ago and they still haven't got their Sh*t Together on this game

This game is alright but not really worth £30
