    Disclaimer: I'm not an expert on the matter, I'm just sharing a way I found to play the game on macOS Catalina so other people running this OS have a way to play without installing a VM or dual booting.) You also need the SIP disabled. (I couldn't find any other way, soz)

    So, because of sheer stupidity I updated from Mojave to Catalina last week completely oblivious that GunBound Origins is a 32 bit application.
    Since I'm quite lazy to restart my computer to boot windows just to play a few matches I decided to do some research on running Wine on Catalina, and I found a way to doing so.
    Did it work?


    Yes! (ish)
    First up you need to be comfortable with terminal commands as most of this tutorial is done from a terminal program.

    First up, you'll need homebrew installed on your machine, just in case you don't have it already, fire up your preferred terminal program and paste the following:
    /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"
    Once it's installed, we'll need to install a Catalina compatible Wine, for that we'll just paste the following after installing homebrew:
    brew tap gcenx/wine && brew install wine-crossover
    After Wine is installed, we'll need the Windows Gunbound installer, remember where you save it as we'll need the path to call the installer from the terminal.

    When the download completes, return to your terminal application and move to the folder path where you saved the installer at. (eg. in my case this would be "cd ~/Downloads").

    Next up, run this command:
    wine GunboundOriginsMay22019.exe
    (or whatever name you gave to the downloaded file)

    This will run the Gunbound installer, install as you normally would.

    Once the installer finishes up, go back to the terminal and paste this command:
    cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Gunbound\ Origins/
    And finally run Gunbound with:
    wine Windowed.exe
    You need to run the Windowed.exe or else it won't work (you're free to try otherwise though), also it will only run fullscreen mode, so no windowed mode :(

    You also need to have terminal running since wine is running from there.

    If you got this far, well, congrats, you've got Gunbound running on Catalina. :3
