It might come as a shock to some of the newer Mac users, but “Mac App Stores” have been around for a while now. Some even have their own stand alone applications.

So while everyone’s clamouring to buy applications through the Mac App Store this week, it’s important to remember that you can find a lot of software, currently unavailable on the Mac App Store, in other places (Bodega, MacGameStore, etc).

Feral Interactive has recently announced that users will be able to download some of their games from the MacGameStore, Direct2Drive, and GamersGate, as well as the “official” Apple App Store.

Three of their games, Borderlands, Lego Harry Potter, and Rome: Total War Gold Edition, are all already available on the 3rd party digital stores. If you’re a purist, and you would rather purchase your games from Apple’s App Store, Harry Potter: Years 1-4 is already available for download, albeit slightly more expensive due to Apple pricing policies. But, Lego Harry Potter has since been removed from Apple’s Mac App Store. We have an email in to Feral Interactive to find out what’s going on, and we’ll be sure to post an update if/when we hear back from them

So if you’re looking for some excellent games, you might want to check out the games Feral Interactive is currently bringing to the market. They’ve got some pretty big titles.

Update: We’ve heard back from Feral Interactive, you can see their comments here.
