    Device: MacBook Air M1 2020 8 GB RAM 7 Core GPU
    OS: macOS 12
    Method: CrossOver 21
    Game version: GOG (1.04)/Steam
    Resolution: 1680x1050
    Settings: High
    Comment: For whatever reason performance tanks when DXVK or ESYNC is enabled so recommended settings for Crossover 21 are just "Performance Enhanced Graphics". GOG Version 1.04 Works fine but seems to not work with Recent versions but Recent Steam install works fine.
  3. Verified by User:spork on 2021-12-30
    Device: MacBook Pro 14" M1 Max 32 GB RAM 24 Core GPU
    OS: macOS 12.1
    Method: Paralells
    Game version: Epic Games Store
    Resolution: Native
    Settings: High
    Framerate: Unknown, but definitely 30+ with very occasional frame drops.
    Comment: Game runs perfectly. I've confirmed that the lighting issue that occurs when playing in Crossover does not manifest when playing in Parallels. This is the recommended way of playing Inscryption on Mac.
