Everybody has a birthday, but only despots and PC games distribution websites get to take all week about it. GOG began their six-year shindig yesterday, but have every intention of making it last through the weekend. They’ll incentivise your participation with extra-cheap games.
The Warsaw-based DRM-slayers have picked games that had a significant impact on the site in each of its six years. Some were released decades ago, but their appearance often marked the culmination of countless hours spent tirelessly unpicking webs of license ownership.
Today’s offerings cover the headway made in GOG’s second year – so you get Serious Sam, Myst, Master of Orion, The Longest Journey and the like for not very much at all.
The sale line-up will change entirely every 24 hours. GOG have pointed to Deus Ex, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Hotline Miami, Banished and (“obviously”) The Witcher 1 and 2 as some of the games we can expect to see.
We don’t know what else might be coming, but GOG say many selections will be “games that have left an imprint on gaming’s history”. The promo will run until Monday, September 16, at 9:59am GMT.
GOG do films now, you know. So much for that acronym, eh?
