Trek to Yomi is an action-adventure game done in a cinematic style. The game is developed by Flying Wild Hog, the studio behind Shadow Warrior 2 and 3. The story of the game revolves around a swordsman named Hiroki and his battle against evil – his failures, and, eventually, successes in this fight. The whole game is done in a black-and-white artstyle, with a grainy filter applied on top. According to the developers, the intent was to make the game look like a silent film from the 1920-1930 era of cinematography. To further enhance the cinematic experience, Trek to Yomi features a memorable soundtrack designed to evoke images of feudal Japan. Traditional Japanese instruments, such as shamisen and taiko drums, have been used extensively.
The gameplay of Trek to Yomi can largely be divided into two distinct parts, exploration and combat. They can be easily distinguished from one another, as combat sections always feature a side-view camera angle – a part of this game’s streamlined approach to combat. The players have several weapons at their disposal – a katana, obviously, but also shurikens, bows, and ozutsu.
Trek to Yomi is available on PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One & Series X/S, and MS Windows. Sadly, there’s no support for Apple computers. But it is still possible to play Trek to Yomi on Mac – the instructions are in the article below.

Play Trek to Yomi on Mac with Parallels
Trek to Yomi requires lots of PC resources, but if you have a powerful Mac computer (iMac, iMac Pro, or Mac Pro) Parallels Desktop can be a solution. This is an application that allows for Windows virtualization on Mac with the full support of DirectX and GPUs. In simpler terms, what this means is that it allows you to install Windows 10 on Mac with just a couple of clicks and switch between MacOS and Windows instantly. So you will be able to run Windows, install Steam, and enjoy the Trek to Yomi game on Mac just like on a regular PC.
Note: Recommended devices to run resource-demanding games: MacBook Pro (models with an Intel processor, discrete graphics cards, and 16 GB of RAM or more), iMac (models with Intel processor, discrete graphics cards, and 16 GB of RAM or more), iMac Pro (all models are suitable), Mac Pro (all models are suitable). Parallels on Mac computers with M1 (M1 Pro, M1 Max) chips may not support recent games. Games that require DirectX 12 and later are currently not supported by Parallels. AppsOnMac recommends using Parallels’ free trial feature to determine whether you can run the game or not if you’re uncertain.
Play Trek to Yomi on Mac with Cloud Gaming services
If you have an old Mac or it cannot satisfy the Trek to Yomi game system requirements, there is an easy solution. Cloud gaming services will be happy to provide you with sufficient computing power – though not for free, of course. All you need is a browser or a small client program and a good internet connection starting from 15 MBit/s. There are several great platforms that provide these services, among the best are Boosteroid, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, and Nvidia GeForce Now.
Play Trek to Yomi on Mac with BootCamp
Note: Mac computers with new Apple Silicon (M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max) currently do not support BootCamp. In this case, please, use the options above to run Trek to Yomi on Mac
This method is simple but time-consuming. If your Mac meets all the system requirements above, you can play Trek to Yomi on Mac by installing Windows. You need to set up a dual boot of Windows and Mac via BootCamp. This is an application that allows users to choose the system to work in on startup, however, you won’t be able to switch between systems like in Parallels. You will need to reboot your machine every time you want to switch from Mac to Windows and vice versa. Remember that Mac is just a computer, in the end. And while newer Macs have their own special Apple Silicon chips that cannot run Windows, older Macs are very much similar to computers that run Windows, they have Intel processors, compatible RAM, disks, and other components. So you can install Windows on an older Mac by allocating no less than 64 GB of disk space (to be able to run Windows and a couple of games) and following these steps:
For OS X El Capitan 10.11 and older
For MacOS versions prior to OS X El Capitan 10.11 you will need to create a bootable Windows USB.
- Download this Windows ISO file.
- Open Boot Camp Assistant (Go to Applications > Utilities).
- Define the Windows partition size and choose the Windows ISO file you’ve downloaded.
- Format the Windows partition and go through all Windows installation steps.
- When Windows boots for the first time follow on-screen instructions to install Boot Camp and Windows support software (drivers)
