    Gem Promo: Runaway Trilogy up to 70% off
    Get the whole cinematic 3-parter bundled for only $8.97!

That's only $8.97 for the complete set of three games!

    The story of Brian Bosco and his companion Gina start off small, soon to unleash a tide of intense events that will turn a simple collage student into an eccentric daredevil detective who laughs in the face of danger. Well, it might be hysterical laughter of a madman at times, or a nervous giggle of a person terrified for their life, but he sure has a way of approaching grim-looking situations with a lot of humor. Whether he's running for his life with mob breathing down his neck, crushing in a plane on a mysterious tropical island, or faking his own death to get away from a mental asylum and clear himself from murder charges, he always manages to keep a smile on his face. Paired with terror and craziness in his eyes, but a smile nonetheless.

    Runaway Trilogy is one of the most cinematic adventure game series ever made. Looking and sounding better with every iteration it ended up with impressive animation, top-notch voice acting, and a movie-worthy soundtrack it's a true gem in its genre. The games mix classic point-and-click design with non-linear gameplay elements, well-executed comedy, and a story full of of surprising turns. Brace yourselves for a non-stop full throttle mad ride through all three installments of the highly polished adventure series, coming from a team of people who make adventure games since 1994!

    Runaway, a cinematic point-and-click trilogy: A Road Adventure, The Dream of The Turtle, and A Twist of Fate bundled for $8.97 until Tuesday, May 20, at 9:59AM GMT. You can also get them separately with 50% discount on one, or 60% discount on two games. Titles already owned count towards the higher discount rate.

    Week-long Promo: Teslagrad
    Fight grim oppression with mysterious science!

    Teslagrad, an immersive steampunk-ish side-scrolling adventure with electrifying scientific mechanics, great audio, and charming hand-drawn visuals, is available 33% off on GOG.com. That's only $6.69 for the entire week!

    Sir Arthur C. Clarke once said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Now, if only the people weren't scared too bad to raise their eyes and look towards it. Guess you'll have to make it shine much brighter!

    Teslagrad presents you with an intriguing story that will capture both your imagination, and your heart. In this non-linear puzzle platformer, you'll be utilizing the powers of magnetism and electricity to unlock the many secrets of the abandoned Tesla Tower. With over 100 beautiful hand-drawn environments and rich and immersive--yet voiceless--storytelling, this competent title has every chance to become one of the shining gems of its somewhat crowded genre. The creators went out of their way, to create an experience that will draw you in and keep you invested in the adventure. No loading screens, no GUI, just the mesmerizing soundtrack, the intriguing puzzles, the colorful gameworld, and you.

    Ready to bring a whole new spark of electricity to your gaming life? Get Teslagrad, for only $6.69 on GOG.com. The 33% special discount offer lasts until Monday, May 25, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Gem Promo: Fractured Soul
    Quantum entanglement shooty action engage!

    Fractured Soul, a classics-inspired action platformer challenging you to play simultaneously across two realities for an enthralling arcade experience, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for 24 hours!

    We all exist in a universe that we understand only to a small extent. Philosophers, scholars, and finally scientist devote their lives to uncovering the inner workings of reality, but what we know is just a small fraction of the big picture, and what we understand is just a small portion of what we know. Physicists theorize the existence of different reality planes, parallel to our own. They also manage to catch a glimpse sometimes of incredible quantum mechanics that govern the way the universe works. In theory the same bit of matter cannot occupy two places at the same time, right? But may it shift across dimensions instantly? What about energy? What about consciousness? Can realities overlap one another? In this game--yes, they can. In our world? We're yet to find out.

    Fractured Soul puts you in control of the entity--one soul stretched across two dimensions, each of them quite similar, but not the same. Double the information input, double the effort to process it, double the fun from overcoming the challenges. Your character is able to shift between two worlds in an instant, but it's up to you to take in what's happening in both of them at any given time, to make sure your use of that ability leads to optimal results. Hardcore bonus challenge levels are unlocked through 5 star performances in the main game. You can also take on the challenge of Fractured Soul with a friend, in local co-op mode. The game comes bundled with a full soundtrack, both in MP3 and FLAC format.

    Give your brain an excercise in multi-tasking with the devious arcade mindgame that is Fractured Soul, for only $3.99 on GOG.com. The 60% off Gem Promo discount offer lasts until Thursday, May 22, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Gem Promo: Psychonauts
    Time to look up "oniric"!

    Psychonauts, an immensely original and funny 3D action-adventure platformer with surreal story and oniric environments, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for the next 24 hours.

    In this world created by Tim Schafer and his Double Fine team, there is a very special summer camp for kids with psychic special powers. Just as in any other well-organized summer camp, the children participate in various activities to earn merit badges. But instead of kayaking, building stick huts, lighting fire with two pieces of wood, they try to master levitation, hypnosis, and pyrokinesis. But just as every good summer camp story, this one also sees a sudden twist, when a mysterious evildoer abducts one psychic kid after another into the twisted realms of nightmares. It's up to Raz, a young but extraordinarily gifted cadet, to save the day, and it's up to you to enjoy every single bit of this oniric experience!

    Psychonauts combines a well executed 3D platformer mechanics, surreall design, fantastic plot, sharp humor, and many innovative ideas into one game that you won't soon forget. This title received high praise from gamers, critics, and game designers alike, and remains a landmark that stands out from a somewhat crowded genre. If you value originality and excellence in design, at $3.99 Psychonauts is an offer you simply should not refuse.

    You're up for an unforgettable oniric trip in Psychonauts, for only $3.99 on GOG.com. The promo lasts until Tuesday, May 27, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Wanna know a little bit more about the game? Here's a great video review made by GOG.com user GodOfBreadsticks!

    Special Promo: Arma Series up to 80% off
    A farewell to arms promo!

    The Arma Series, that is Arma Gold Edition, Arma: Cold War Assault, and Arma 2: Combined Operations (complete with the Operation Arrowhead expansion), providing the ultimate mod-enabled first person-perspective military simulation experience, is available up to 80% off on GOG.com. That's only $8.17 for the whole set of three games, for the next 72 hours.

    War has always been, and probably always will be, one of the predominant themes in computer games. From 8-bit systems to contemporary monster gaming rigs you'll have simulators, strategy games, and war-inspired arcade titles. But there's only one type of game that could let you really see war as a first-hand gritty and immersive experience. An FPS, first person perspective shooter. Again, there are many levels of realism throughout the genre. Some of the war FPS' tend to focus on storytelling, using heavy scripting to deliver a cinematic experience. Others don't try to hide the fact, that the war you're seeing isn't real and that the main goal is to have fun while playing. And there's the Arma Series.

    Arma Series is a game series that will make you feel like an actual combatant on one of the modern-day military missions. A game that will amaze you with its level of realism in recreating actual weapons, military gear, ballistics, and battlefield conditions. A game that will challenge you in ways no other wargame ever could. Dropping you in the middle of a fictional conflict, that feels more real than most things you see on the news, it proves to be the ultimate modern-day military simulation that you can play outside of actual military VR training facilities. Arma 2: Combined Operations allows for massive multiplayer matches that can host up to 50 players simultaneously, and the Operation Arrowhead expansion that, on top of adding another campaign to the game, provides extensive mod compatibility, this is the FPP wargame you want to get, if you mean business.

    On top of that, Arma 2: Combined Operations is required to run DayZ, the most popular game modification since the infamous Hot Coffe. What? You don't know what DayZ is? Don't fret--we've got you covered.

    Do you think you can handle real virtual warfare? Find out if you really know which side of the assault rifle you should point at the enemies in the complete Arma Series, for only $8.17 on GOG.com. The special promo lasts until Saturday, June 7, at 9:59AM GMT. Games also available separately with lower discount rate. The games already owned on GOG.com count towards the higher discount.

    Important note: This is a last chance promo, as Arma Gold Edition, Arma: Cold War Assault, and Arma 2: Combined Operations will be removed from sales on GOG.com on June 22, along with the remaining Bohemia Interactive title: Original War. If you buy (or have already bought) any of these games, they will remain on your account "shelf", so you'll be still able to access and download them.

    Gem Promo: Celtic Kings & Tzar up to 70% off!
    A royal RTS bundle!

    Celtic Kings: Rage of War & Tzar: The Burden of the Crown, a pair of elaborate and masterfully executed real-time strategy games driving their inspiration from historical events with an occasional splash of fantasy, is avaliable bundled 70% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.59 for the set of two excellent games for the next 24 hours!

    Many people imagine the life of the monarchs to be simple and blissful. There's no higher authority, so there's no one to tell them what to do. They can decide to spend their days feasting, dancing, hunting, and pursuing other frivolous activities. The thing they don't understand is the weight of the crown. Not the actual weight--that's quite bearable, even though many rulers would much prefer a simple felt hat, then a layered construct of fine gold and jewel stones--they weigh no less than regular stones, mind you. The metaphorical weight is far greater. The burden of the crown is the burden of the ages. As it rests on one's head, so does the whole history of a nation: the past, the present, and the future. To tell you the truth, the latter feels the heaviest, today. Excuse your lord this moment of chatter, fieldmarshal. The battle is upon us, let gods make it the last one.

    Tzar: The Burden of the Crown offers the best in real-time strategy gameplay with a believable setting and nice sense of scale, and just a splash of fantasy. The three factions available in the game--Europeans, Asians, and Arabs--differ greatly from one another in terms of gameplay style and available facilities. The main campaign spanning across twenty scenarios grants many hours of challenge and excitement. When it ends the game provides an infinite number of randomly-generated maps, and a solid multi-player mode. Celtic Kings: Rage of War is a great mixture of two genres - adventure and real-time strategy. In strategic mode, you play as either the Romans or the Gauls in a world where tactical and strategic maneuvers are the key to victory. In adventure mode you take on the role of Larax and the battle the warring tribes who have raided your village and killed your wife.

    Accept the greatest responsibility and take the fate of entire nations in your own hands in Celtic Kings: Rage of War & Tzar: The Burden of the Crown, for only $3.58 on GOG.com. The special Gem Promo 70% off discount lasts until Tuesday, June 10, at 9:59AM GMT. Games also available separately, for $2.39 each. Games already owned count towards the higher discount rate.

    Gem Promo: Tower of Guns
    A fast-paced roguelike-like old-school medium-core single-serving first-person gun-shooter. WHAT?!

    Tower of Guns, a first person shooter in which you storm a enemy-filled tower that is randomized to offer a different experience with each exciting play-through, is available 50% off on GOG.com. That's only $7.49 for the next 24 hours!

    Tower of Guns is a game designed to give you a full single-serving FPS experience everytime you play it. Each floor of the tower you'll be attempting to capture consists of a random set of predefined rooms, populated with different setup of enemies, loot, and power-ips. The game also offers many different combinations of weapons and character perks, adding special flavor to every play. Even the narrative is selected at random, so the backstory can have you follow strict orders from your commanding officer just to make you into a delivery boy with an important package the next time around. The silly dialogs are well in sync with the game's humorous tone that makes everything from the descriptions of your guns down to the names of bosses into a light-hearted joke. All that comes with somewhat cartoonish graphics, some quirky puzzles, and zany gameplay ideas. The game can prove to be challenging and may force you to dust off your old-school shooter skills, like circular strafing and bunny-hopping. Be warned, though described as a "lunch-break" type of game, beating the tower takes up to an hour, so make sure you've got some time left to actually eat your lunch. Or better yet, try not to play it in your lunch break at all. It's too fun and addictive to put down, and it could ruin your productivity for the day!

    Master the art and science of gunslinging while tower-running in the endless canonade brought to you by the Tower of Guns, for only $7.49 on GOG.com. The 50% off Gem Promo discount offer lasts until Thursday, June 12, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Eh~  It's not Monday, and this lasts through Thursday, but I'll plunk it here, anyway Wink

    Release: The Guild 2: Renaissance bundled up to 75% off
    It just wasn't faire!

    The Guild: Renaissance Bundle (that is The Guild Gold Edition + The Guild 2 + The Guild 2: Pirates of the European Seas + The Guild 2: Renaissance), an extensive collection of fun and complex medieval European dynasty sims, including a title released today, is available bundled 75% off on GOG.com. That's only $9.96 for the set of three for the next 48 hours!

    In the 14th Century the world order is beginning to transform itself. Due to trade and commerce an increasing middle class obtains more and more power and wealth. Entire towns purchase their freedom and more privileges from the nobility. Reading and writing is no longer the domain of the nobility and the clergy and the invention of printing information may eventually be spread everywhere. This is the beginning of the Renaissance...

    The Guild: Renaissance Bundle brings a new title to GOG.com. The Guild 2: Renaissance, with eight completely new professions: mercenary, grave digger, stonemason, juggler, innkeeper, banker, miller and the fruit grower. It comes with new goods, buildings, ambient details and effects, all new scenarios ("Transylvania", "The Rhineland" and "The Alps"), bigger world maps, improved AI, title and nobility system as well as new options. For centuries Europe has been dominated by the church and nobility. On the shoulders of ordinary people the servants of god and the noble families justified their power and wealth. This was the incontrovertible, divine world order. A truly dark era--now yours to explore!

    For the next 48 hours you can transport yourself into the European middle ages and start your very own dynasty of moneygrabbing powermongers with The Guild Renaissance Bundle, for only $9.96. The games are also available separately, 50% off. Titles already owned count towards the bundle completion and the higher discount rate. The offer lasts until Thursday, July 3, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Braveland is a turn-based game inspired by old-school strategies with hexagonal battlefield.

    OH SWEET!  I don't have to get Braveland from BFG!  For $1.99, I'll pick that up and then finish my review.  (Well after I've exhausted Defender's Quest ...    2muchcompy )


    PS - Has anybody played the Guild games GOG has on bundle right now?  We are considering them and I just wondered if they were good.  The reviews are so mixed - it seems like love or hate, and I trust y'all's opinions.

    Special Promo: Games from Paris
    Shopping à Paris!

    Sure Paris is great for a walk down the Seine, a visit to the Louvre, or "café et croissant" at Champs-Élysées, but today it's all about games! Our Games from Paris promo let's you choose from 10 exceptional games created by Parisian developers, all 70% off!

    This special deal is our stand-in for Wednesday's regular Gem Promo offering, however, with 10 games in the line-up we figured it's only fair to give you a bit more time. The offer is in effect until Sunday, August 3, at 9:59AM GMT. The lineup includes titles that have shaped gaming history as well as games that made a big splash more recently. Let's have a quick look at a few of those:

    Another World, the action-adventure cult-classic, created almost entirely by only one person - Éric Chahi The game was one of the biggest hits on the Amiga platform thanks to its cinematic feel, great animation and gameplay consisting of puzzles, platforming, and shooter sections. Lester, a young scientist struck by lightning during an experiment and miraculously teleported to a dangerous and mysterious world. His survival is entirely in your hands, and, boy, Another World is not the friendliest of places!

    Aarklash Legacy is a modern top-down RPG title reminescent of the early 2000s classics, complete with deep tactical combat and an active pause system. An intriguing story is a wonderful backdrop for what the game truly excels in: elaborate combat mechanics, allowing for complete control over enemy encounters. With a classic feel combined with many original ideas, elaborate skill trees, ominous dungeons, and sleek visuals, this fantastic title will easily quench your thirst for classic computer role-play!

    Omikron: The Nomad Soul, a remarkable action-adventure game, even by today's standards, came way ahead of its time. With its lush and complex virtual world, diverse gameplay mechanics, and original immersive storytelling. It succeeded in creating an illusion of stepping into another world and obliterated the barrier between the virtual reality and our own. The project was so fresh, imaginative, and ambitious that David Bowie himself was more than willing to take a prominent part in the production. You can even meet his lookalike in the game and listen to him performing!

    Celebrate the creativity and craftsmanship of Parisian game-makers and take advantage of our Games from Paris promo! Allez, allez!

    Gem Promo: Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded
    Return of the mack

    Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded, the modern remake of the original iconic adventure featuring Larry Laffer, updated with sleek graphics, new puzzles, new activities, and new objects of romantic conquest, is available 75% off for Windows and Mac OS X on GOG.com. That's $4.99 for the next 24 hours!

    So, the guy walks into my bar, and it takes me exactly five seconds to look at him and decide he's a hopeless shmock. I've seen many middle-aged guys trying to get lucky in my part of town on a Saturday night. "Lefty's" does have a reputation, after all. But this guy--I just instantly knew he was a special kind of sorry loser. Dressed in a generic white polyester suit, gold chain around his neck, silly hairdo barely distracting the attention from his shiny bald spots, five feet tall, and the look of a rutting buck in his eyes. The moment he walks in, he fixes his sights on the closest female target, comes by, says maybe five words tops, and gets slapped on the mug. "Show's over", I think to myself. But no. Get this, the guy just turns around smiles like an idiot, and hits on another chick. Let me tell you this, man, if you don't have the looks, and don't smell like cash, you need to be persistent. By the time he left, I felt both sorry for him and admired him at the same time. Well, I mostly felt sorry for him, but that doesn't make for an interesting story. Ready for another beer?

    Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded takes one of the most memorable adventure games of all times and gives it a total makeover to add some modern--yet conservative--bells and whistles. You'll get to play through the entire original story, now presented in hand-drawn 2D cartoony graphics (not unlike the art-style of Larry 7: Love for Sail), and accompanied by a great new orchestrated version of the soundtrack. On top of that, the new version comes with new puzzles, mini-games, activities, and--most importantly--new women for Larry Laffer to woo. Isn't that exciting? Very exciting? Dare we say: arousing?

    Let the smelly yellow cab drop you off in front of the famous Lefty's Bar once again--or perhaps for the first time ever--in Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded, for only $4.99 on GOG.com until Thursday, August 14 at 9:59AM GMT!

    Series Gem Promo: Blackwell
    Snooping around the supernatural!

    The Blackwell series, a fantastic collection of five old-school point-and-click supernatural murder-mysteries from Wadjet Eye Games, is available on GOG.com for up to 75% off for the next 24 hours. The complete series consists of Blackwell Bundle, up for grabs for only $3.74 (75% off), and The Blackwell Epiphany-- the final chapter to the story, available for $8.99 (40% off).

    In The Blackwell Bundle we follow the exploits of the unlikely detective duo as they investigate four cases balancing on the edge between crime and paranormal happenings. In the first chapter of our story, The Blackwell Legacy, we witness the beginning of an unwitting partnership, as Rosa Blackwell learns about her psychic heritage, meets the ghost of Joe Mallone, and stops a series of mysterious suicides. Blackwell Unbound acts as a prequel to the series and tells the story of Rosa's grandmother, Lauren Blackwell, who preceded her granddaughter as Joe's medium mystery-solving partner. Back in our times Blackwell Convergence pits Rosa and Joe against a tortured soul of a murdering lunatic, that's been haunting the Big Apple for decades. Finally, Blackwell Deception puts our detectives in harm's way as a sinister villain manipulates them for his own dark purposes. All of the stories feature top-notch writing, remarkable voice-acting, classic pixel-art graphics, and a multitude of restless spirits.

    The Blackwell Epiphany serves as the fifth and final installment of the series. As usual, the game is a real treat for the fans of classic point-and-click gameplay and traditional hand-crafted 2D graphics. The game is longer than any of the previous ones, and--being the grand finale to the story of Rosa Blackwell--it promises more excitement, drama, and danger. Our heroine and her opacity-impaired partner, the spirit-sleuth Joey Mallone, will face their ultimate challenge. Can you see them safe through it?

    Get the entire 5-game-long mystery packed retroventure with The Blackwell series, available for only $12.73 until Thursday, August 21, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Series Gem Promo: Little Big Adventure 1&2
    Embark on the finest of adventures!

However, if you get them both, the discount goes up to 70%! That's as little as $1.79 for each of those unforgettable classics, for the next 24 hours!

    The Little Big Adventure series remains the pinnacle of storytelling to this day.

The story leads the plucky hero, Twinsen, through a world of wonder and beauty agitated only by the shadow of impending doom. In LBA 1 you will try to stop the evil Dr.Funfrock from enslaving your world, and in LBA 2 you'll have to save the planet from total annihilation plotted by an alien race. Both games features state-of-the-art animation, that made both the funny and disturbing moments feel fantastical and yet alarmingly real. With plenty of puzzle-solving, challenging combat, unforgettable characters, and, above all, an engaging story, the series has instantly become a benchmark for imaginative game design and remains a strong influence for generations of devs and gamers alike.

    If you value unrestrained imagination and love to lose yourself in a gripping story, grab both Little Big Adventure games--for as little as $3.58! The offer lasts until Tuesday, August 26, at 9:59AM GMT.
