What's MacHeist?

So, what exactly is MacHeist? It begins with the missions.... MacHeist's missions are an opportunity for our members to live out some of their time travel fantasies, including family secrets, hidden rooms, and a storyline packed with Steampunk intrigue, while earning free Mac software.

Over 1.4 million MacHeist members have experienced the Mac themed, puzzle filled missions, receiving millions of dollars worth of free Mac software so far.

The MacHeist bundle was introduced in December 2006 to huge success within the Macintosh community. The software bundle offered 10 of the Mac indie development community's best offerings, and was available at the end of the MacHeist promotion for one week. The bundle was called the greatest Mac software deal in history, but we didn't stop there. In 2007 we held MacHeist II and it became the biggest Mac shareware event ever. Quite possibly the biggest software event ever on any platform. We had more of everything: more missions, more puzzles, more free Mac software, and more of you... and the community grew to become one of the largest Mac communities on the net! Most recently MacHeist 3 ended in 2009 after raising $850,000 for charity and selling more than 80,000 bundles. The community grew to include over 320,000 members, and and our charity donation was the highest in MacHeist history. Now we're back with a whole new set of missions and the biggest bundle yet!
