Valve has finally released the full version of Steam for the Mac, unveiling a new Steam Play functionality that marks compatible games as playable on both PC and Mac platforms, though you only need buy them once.

To help show off the possibilities of Steam Play and the Mac as a games platform Valve is also giving away brilliant puzzle game Portal for free until May 24th. Check out our Portal review for more information.

Valve has also announced the initial list of Steam Play titles that will be available for both PC and Mac users, which you can see below. If you already own these games for PC then you'll be able to play them on a Mac now too. Valve will be announcing a new batch of Steam Play releases every Wednesday.

"The Mac is a great platform for developers," said Gabe Newell, president of Valve. "And it's also great that we now have the ability to connect with Mac gamers via Steam. This is the beginning of a groundswell of games coming out for and fully utilizing the openness and power of the Mac."
