BGE doesn't work on Mac OSX 10.13 High Sierra

I just bought BGE and downloaded version 1.5. However, when I try to open it, I get an alert saying that PowerPC apps are no longer supported. Same thing occurs with the 1.7 beta.

That's right. As noted on the System Requirements page for BGE, the program only worked on Mac OS X v10.1 through 10.6. I'll issue you a refund.

There was a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund a major update to BGE and BRPG which would have made the apps usable on modern Macs and OSes, but it failed miserably. However, I may try a re-launch at some point, now that I've got a better chance of it being funded. Feel free to sign up for the newsletter if you'd like to be informed when/if that happens.

So, neither version works on Mac then?

BRPG and BGE only work on Mac OS X v10.1-10.6 (aka Snow Leopard). Which no one uses anymore. If you mean do they work on modern versions of Mac OS, the answer is no, they don't.
