I managed to build on my miniMac (early 2009, Mavericks with Xcode)! However, my methods are crude and the exe is sluggish.
I will update if I find a nicer way... First, on Linux, I have a recent g++ in a nonstandard place, so I needed to modify the CMakeCache.txt file to point to my newest. Then, that worked.

On OSX, the most difficult part was installing FreeImage (its makefile needed much editing). Then I had to install libassimp, which was somewhat tricky. I already had freeglut installed. After these were installed, I made a build directory, and from there I did cmake ../source. Then I had to edit CMakeCache.txt to define 3 items.
A) the architecture I wanted ( CMAKE_OSX_ARCHITECTURE:STRING= x86_64 )
B) CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING= -std=c++11 -I/usr/include/glew -I/opt/X11/include -I/usr/local/include
in order to define the include paths to glew, freeglut, FreeImage, and assimp.
C) define the library path to satisfy: -lglut, -lfreeimage, -lassimp, -lGL, -lGLU
using the parameter CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS:STRING=

Thusly, make succeeded for me.

Sure I will. However, I assumed I could build on Linux. I just tried and I am having trouble there too! Messages seem to indicate code is not c++ compliant. Maybe I need to try an older version of the gcc compiler....I will study your guide first.

But it's the same game, isn't it? So we could merge them?

There is a little guide on compiling the source in here:
It was written for Linux but it should work on mac, too.

Can you message me if you get it to work? I'd love to offer a mac build.

The essential difference is just that this version is written in Ada. So it may be one of the few Ada examples that use "modern" OpenGL that contain all the pieces to actually compile and run on both OS-X and Linux.

Tool: Steam

Viva la Gabe Newell!

Thanks to this man, the concept of Linux games reached a new level!
One can argue about the DRM, but a positive role Steam difficult to deny.

every thing on the project page. For some reason i have the impression this is a spam post and someone forgot to attach a spam address ;). atm there is nothing to do in the game.
