Will realMyst: Masterpiece Edition run on a Mac OS X 10.6.8. with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz processor and an integrated Intel GMA 950 GPU?

I can't answer about your particular specifications, but it is running fine so far on my MacBook Pro.

Processor: 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6770M 1024 MB
OS: OSX Lion 10.7.5

Your OS and processor look good, not sure about the video card.

It should be just enough to run it.

Ooh, I'm not so sure. The minimum specs say a card that supports shader model 3.0. GMA 950 is only pixel shader 2.0 but vertex shader 3.0. It's kind of an edge case by the numbers, on a 6.5+ year-old Mac.

Edit:
I actually have an even older Mac at hand (Mac OS X 10.6.8, 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo), but it has an ATI mobility X1600 graphics chip, which is more advanced and benchmarks quite a lot higher than the GMA 950. rM:ME runs on it but is very low frame rate (5 fps?), even at lowest settings and 640x480 (lowest resolution). The low frame rate makes it uncontrollable in free roam mode unless you dial down the mouse look speed to lowest. The game may not even run on a GMA 950, but if it does, your experience very likely will be poor.

TL;DR for any Cyan reps: This is not an error report. My system is well below minimum specs and I didn't even expect the game to run on it. :)
