    Seriously? I thought Leisure Suit Larry went the way of Benny Hill. No need to resurrect either of them, is there? Rolling Eyes Snicker

    Classic Gem Promo: Raiden Legacy
    Classic coin-op excitement!

    Raiden Legacy, a collection of four classic arcade vertical shoot 'em ups with pixel graphics and swarms of foes, is available 50% off on GOG.com for Windows and Mac. That's only $4.99 for the next 24 hours!

    If you got to visit the arcades as a kid, you probably have some great childhood memories. There were few things nearly as exciting as blasting through the swarms of alien invaders, sweaty palms desperately gripping the controls, knowing that the final boss is just about to turn up, and that you're on your last quarter. Here's your chance to relive that experience with your computer screen full of flashing explosions, ears flooded by the sound of roaring supersonic jet engines, and great pixel-art coming at you from all directions. Not one, but four classic titles await arcade champions and brave contestants in this amazing collection.

    Raiden Legacy revives one of the most memorable arcade shoot 'em up series, that excels in fast paced action with abundance of flying flashy projectiles and a great variety of enemies coming in waves from the top of the screen. There are--of course--some giant bosses to fight, lots of power-ups, and a great selection of weaponry. The Legacy consists of four independent titles updated with optional graphics filter. For less than five bucks you get Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet--that's four classic arcade shooters that can easily provide you (and a friend, if you choose the phenomenally playable local co-op mode) with hours of explosive fun!

    Compared to the amounts of money we've all probably lost quarter by quarter as kids in the arcade, Raiden Legacy with its $4.99 pricetag on GOG.com sure does look like a bargain, especially for the unlimited play! The offer lasts until Tuesday, October 8, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Special Promo: Shutdown Promo!
    Showing you how government works, in case yours doesn't!
    Speaking from one organization that has had an unpopular shutdown to another: America. What are you doing? America? Stahp.

    Shutdowns are never popular, and all of the polls show that this is not a big hit with most Americans either. Americans may be looking for something fun to do, since all their parks are closed for the moment. Thankfully your favorite purveyor of digital games is here to help. It occurs to us that one of the problems may be that there are people on Capitol Hill who don't know what a functioning government looks like, so we thought we'd help and point a few out with a special 24-hour 50% off Shutdown Promo.

    The Guild: Gold Edition is a great place to see where the term "Machiavellian Politics" originated from. If you're looking to find a land where earning power was the key to success in the political arena, look no further. Meanwhile, in Capitalism Plus and Capitalism 2, you can get the best economic sims that money can buy half off and see for yourself how a demand economy functions. Tropico Reloaded is 50% off as a reminder of what can happen when governments go awry, and Alpha Centauri (with the Alien Crossfire expansion!) has more different styles of governments modeled than you can shake a stick at. So, really, these games are a quick lesson in civic government. Because we're concerned for you guys.

    There has been a lot of furor over health care in America leading up to this shutdown, and we think it's a shame so many people are upset about medicine and how to treat each other. To help further our educational mission for this promo, we figured we'd put Theme Hospital in the sale as well, because that way you can judge for yourself just how tricky it can be to balance the needs of sick patients against limited budgets. Finally, for reasons entirely unrelated to who may or may not have been involved in shutting down the US Government, we also appear to have Redneck Rampage on sale 50% off.

    Finally, we would like to express our condolences to everyone who's been furloughed by the shutdown. More than that, actually, we'd like to offer you the games pack of our special Shutdown Promo for free. Send an email to thanksobama@gog.com with your picture holding the official furlough letter you received, before Friday 11 October 2013 at 12:00 EDT and we'll give you The Guild: Gold Edition, Capitalism, Capitalism 2, Tropico: Gold Edition, Alpha Centauri + Alien Crossfire, Theme Hospital, and Redneck Rampage free.

    We hope the games will keep you all occupied while you're waiting for someone on Capitol Hill to get their act together. Meanwhile, get The Guild, Capitalism Plus, Capitalism 2, Tropico: Gold Edition, Alpha Centauri + Alien Crossfire, Theme Hospital, and Redneck Rampage 50% off (or free if you met the requirements above), in our special Shutdown Promo! The offer lasts until Thursday, October 10, at 12:59PM GMT.

    Classic Gem Promo: The Bard's Tale
    The quest for coin and cleavage!

    The Bard's Tale, the shining pinnacle of comedy among cRPG, bundled with its three classic DOS-era predecessors, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for the next 24 hours!

    Let's talk about career choices in fantasy realms. You can be a knight, always overburdened by his full plate armor, never able to sneak up on his foes. Plus, your honor code won't allow you to take money for your deeds of valor. You can take the path of wizardry, dooming yourself to all the health hazards that come with handling all the poisonous ingredients needed to cast the simplest of spells. Not to mention the smell! Having your pockets always full of bat dung, just in case you need to cast a casual fireball, never made anyone popular with the ladies. Rangers? Sure, you get to spend much time outdoors, which is supposed to be healthy, but trust me: a lifetime of sleeping in a bedroll on the damp forest floor will leave you with a hell of rheumatism in the old age. A proper bed is a much wiser choice. Even more so, if it's kept warm by a frivolous girl. Some coin is always good, too. My advice--forget all other professions, grab a lute, and be a rockstar. Um--I mean: a bard.

    The Bard's Tale delivers solid cRPG gameplay, a vast fantasy realm to explore, tons of quests to perform, and hundreds of items to loot. By all means this is a fully-fledged role playing game, but that's not what it's famous for. Brilliant comedy is where this game truly shines among all other titles in this genre. With excellent writing and fantastic voicing done by Cary Elwes (of The Princess Bride fame) as the Bard, and a gaming voiceover veteran, Tony Jay as the Narrator. There's an extra treat for the die-hard old-school computer RPG fans included with this release as well: the classic Bard's Tales 1, 2, and 3 DOS-era hard-as-nails games.

    A fantasy land full of adventure, humor, gold, girls, and moderate danger that wouldn't pose much threat to a battle-hardened adventurer, awaits you in The Bard's Tale, for only $3.99 on GOG.com. Don't wait, because the 60% off discount offer lasts only until Tuesday, October 15, at 9:59AM GMT. Don't forget: with your purchase, you'll receive a FREE copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition. That's two classic action RPGs for less than half the price of one!

    Indie Gem Promo: FEZ
    Welcome to relativity!

    FEZ, an original and surprisingly deep perspective-twisting puzzle-platformer with an huge open world full of secret areas for you to explore, is available 50% off on GOG.com for Windows and Mac OS X. That's only $4.99 for the next 24 hours!

    FEZ is a puzzle-platformer like no other. First of all, its gameplay mechanics come with a perspective-changing twist, that make every stage of the game not one, but four 2D landscapes. You'll have to use that to your advantage and figure out how to make seemingly impossible jumps. That's just scratching the surface, though. There's no telling just how many complex and original puzzles have been hidden in the world of FEZ. That might be the first game in quite some time, that will make you take notes while you play, so you can crack some of the game's secrets and understand its strange languages. There's so many layers and levels to the world you'll be exploring, that you probably won't see the half of it at your first play-through! Pair that with incredibly diverse level-design, and charming pixel-art (ummm... sorry, trixel-art) graphics, and what you get is one of the most remarkable titles of our time. Be sure not to miss it!

    Get cracking at some of the most ingenious puzzles in platformer history, in the
    mind-and-matter-bending gem of a game, FEZ, for only $4.99 on GOG.com. Don't wait, because the 50% off discount offer lasts only until Thursday, October 17, at 9:59AM. That's also the final promo you can match with our special offer that grants you a FREE copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition with your every purchase.

    Classic Gem Promo: Desperados Series
    Hey, hombre! Get Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive + Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge 70% off!

    Desperados Series, a pair of squad-based real-time tactical games set in the wild west, that is Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive and Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge, are available up to 70% off on GOG.com. That's as little as $4.78 for both for the next 24 hours!

    El Paso, a typical Wild West town in the southwestern United States near the Mexican border. It is the year 1881. For the last few months, the trains belonging to the famous railroad company, Twinnings & Co have been the target of a whole series of hold-ups and ambushes. The management of the company has decided enough is enough and they have to put an end to the raids. It has offered a reward of $15,000 for anyone who captures the leader of the gang responsible.But no one in and around El Paso has the courage to take on the might of the bandidos, so the outlaws just keep on robbing train after train. Even the local Marshal is keeping well out of it. It’s only when a stranger rides into town that things start to change. Bounty hunter John Cooper pays a visit to the local Twinnings & Co manager offering to end the railroad company’s problems once and for all.

    Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive and Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge share the successful tactical combat mechanics of the Commandos series but present even more challenging difficulty level and a full-blooded spaghetti-western setting. The games deliver a wide variety of scenarios and an impressive number of ways to accomplish each assignment, with the second one giving you even more tactical options with its full 3D environment. If you're up for some real tactical challenge, you can get many hours of satisfying gameplay out of this pair of wild west classics!

    Today, you can grab both titles in the Desperados Series for only $4.78. Alternatively, you can get just one with 60% discount instead of 70%. Or, if you already have one in your GOG.com collection, you can get the other, retaining the higher discount rate. Don't wait, because the offer lasts only until Tueasday, October 22, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Indie Gem Promo: Spelunky
    A platformer with the darkest of souls.

    Spelunky, a fun but very unforgiving platformer with procedural level creation, dynamic and diverse gameplay, and charming 2D graphics, is available 50% off on GOG.com. That's only $7.49 for the next 24 hours!

    What makes an adventurer? Is it the stylish, but worn outfit with the dusty old hat? No, we've seen adventurers dressed in all kinds of rags. Is it his faithful weapon of choice, like the whip? Again, no. Some adventurers make do with an old umbrella and you don't see them complaining. Is it the imposingly funny sidekick, providing comedic relief to each situation, whether the hero likes it or not? No, many adventurers are lone wolfs. So, what do they have in common? The answer is: complete and utter disregard for danger, and very little imagination. This is a story of such an adventurer. A story, that would never take place if its hero knew any better.

    In Spelunky, you'll be exploring ancient temples, caves, and ruins so packed with deadly monsters and traps, that virtually every step you take without dying is a cause to feel good about your gaming skills. The underground is full of forgotten treasures, gleaming gold nuggets, and shiny gems. Get the loot, escape the traps, beat the beasts, and rescue the damsel in distress (or a boy, if you're playing a female character). If you want to feel like a daring archaeologist/adventurer and you're not afraid of any danger, this game will feel like a dream come true.

    Brave the breakneck underworld and try--just try!--to escape with all the precious treasures you can carry in Spelunky, for only $7.49 on GOG.com. Don't wait, because the 50% off discount offer lasts only until Thursday, October 24, at 9:59AM GMT.

    Classic Gem Promo: Darkstone
    Draak is back.

    Darkstone, a classic hack-and-slash that introduced 3D graphics into the genre, will have you hacking through hordes of horrors with a 60% discount on GOG.com. That's only $2.39 for the next 24 hours.

    When your legal name is "Lord Draak" and you wield the power to transform yourself into a giant dragon, becoming an evil overlord seems like the obvious career choice. Then, if by some strange and totally unexpected twist of fate, you end up deprived of your magic, banished from the realm, and nearly killed you are, again, left with not much of a choice. You obviously need to gather back your minions and devise a new evil plot to terrorize the land and rebuild your reign of fear, violence and darkness. Right? RIGHT?! Well, tough luck, Lord Draak, this game is not about you. It’s about the valiant heroes that are out to get you. Let's repeat that part: Out. To get you. Right. Now.

    In Darkstone a party of up to four adventurers sets off on a quest to free the realm of Uma of its oppressor. In the co-op multi-player mode each player controls one of them. In single-player you can switch between two characters and the computer will take control of the one you leave unattended. There are four provinces to explore, each with its own set of quest-filled, procedurally-generated dungeons to keep you busy and boost the game’s replay value. If you enjoy hacking the minions of evil and slashing through one dark, damp dungeon after another, preferably with some friends at your side, but this title somehow is missing from your DRM-free collection, today is the best day to grab it!

    Fourteen years after its release, Darkstone remains one of the most memorable titles of the hack-and-slash genre! Start dungeon crawling now, for only $2.39 until Tuesday, October 29 at 10:59AM GMT.

It's too far from home? Well, then just go to that pine wood on the edge of the village. It'll do. Find the mysterious mountainside portal leading into the deep, mysterious corridors hand-chiseled by the legendary dwarf tribes of old, and fight off the minotaurs who made their home there. Can't find it? No worries, you can just go into that cobweb-filled cave and swing your stick at some rats. It'll do. After all--even the greatest adventures tend to start off small.

Your quest will take up to 5 hours and once you're done, you'll probably find yourself playing it all over again, enjoying it even more!

    Indie Gem Promo: FTL: Faster Than Light
    Set phasers to FUN!

    FTL: Faster Than Light, an amazing blend of hard science fiction, strategy, and drama that sends you on a voyage through a procedurally generated galaxy filled with awe and danger, is available 66% off today, on GOG.com. That's only $3.39 for the next 24 hours!

    Now, FTL here is a tough game. Some would say that at times it's unfair. To that any spacecraft captain would promptly reply: "life isn't fair, crewman! Suck it up. Now zip-up that red uniform of yours and go check the contamination levels in the second airlock". They would be quite right. Life in the depths of space has no place for such concepts of fairness. You need to be prepared for solar winds blowing in your face. You need to expect a sudden abordage by alien pirates. You need to have a backup backup backup reactor core. That's just everyday's reality for a starship commander. Although, hard as it may seem, you get to reroute power to the shields and launch photon torpedoes at stuff, so in the end it's way more satisfying than all other careers you could have.

    FTL: Faster Than Light is a meticulous simulation of a spaceship commander's duties. The fate of the ship and its crew lies in your hands, so your performance has to be flawless. You have to track many of the craft's systems at once, issue orders to your men, and plan at least five steps ahead.

    Time stood still. The fate of the realm was hanging by a thread. The armies stood in the field in absolute silence, as if every soul paused their breath, carefully eyeing the adversary force.

The beast of war feasted on deaths of thousands for years now, getting bigger, nastier, and more powerful with every fallen warrior. Now, it was ready to consume the best of the best, the ones that managed to survive all the strife so far. This was the climax of a conflict raging for years. A conflict, that wouldn't end any other way, than complete destruction of one of the sides. All was settled that day, and for some time the beast of war would slumber, satisfied and full. But as the decades pass, it would wake up again. And again. And again. The swords would be replaced with plasma cannons and tanks, but the beast would always wake up hungry. Always inspiring Total Annihilation of nations.

    Total Annihilation: Commander Pack and Total Annihilation: Kingdoms (+ Expansion) exemplify the very best of classic Real-Time Strategy gameplay. With dozens of missions available in the basic campaigns as well as the included expansions, these classics can present you with hundreds of hours of challenge and fun, in single and multi-player modes alike.

    Classic Gem Promo: Rune Classic
    A classic!

    Rune Classic, a heroic third-person action game firmly rooted in the dark realm of the olden Norse mythology, coming complete with the Halls of Valhalla expansion to deliver one of the most memorable multi-player experiences of all time, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $3.99 for the next 24 hours!

    Yggdrasil, the immense tree at the center of the world, will tremble like a young aspen in the north wind as the armies of all realms will clash in the war that ends all wars: the Ragnarök. Loki, the mad god of strife and chaos, will escape his shackles and set afire Midgard, the world of men, to suffocate Asgard, the land of gods with thick black smoke of burning souls. So have the Skalds foretold, so have the Norns seen with their blind eyes, so it shall be. The wheels of war have been already set in motion, and the mystical runestones keeping the world in balance are now in peril. It's up to you, a young initiate in the sacred Order of Odinsblade, to strike against the foes of harmony and push the inevitable end back a few centuries again. So it has happened before, and so it shall happen again.

    Rune Classic, a classic third-person perspective action game, inspired by the heroic sagas of Norse mythology, will take you on a journey of bravery, honor, and blood. As Ragnar, a young Viking warrior newly initiated to the sacred Odinsblade Order, you'll be tasked to protect the mystical runestones, created by the one-eyed father of gods himself, to bind the evil Loki and stop him from causing chaos and suffering. On top of the exciting and challenging single-player campaign, the Halls of Valhalla expansion provides Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Arena, and Headball multi-player modes, that can keep you entertained for many more hours. With the surprisingly well-executed hand-to-hand combat mechanics, engrossing theme, and graphics that aged very well, this title belongs in the gaming collection of every dark fantasy and action fan.

    Answer Odin's call to stay up all night to get Loki, and cancel the Ragnarök in Rune Classic, for only $3.99 on GOG.com. The promo lasts until Tuesday, January 14, at 10:59AM GMT.

    Yes, it's an awesome deal!  I'm biting my nails and trying to decide... It's a steal at $9.99, but I can't help wondering if it could be even less later on... Laugh  But it's DRM-free...  Ohhh...

    You know I probably won't be able to help myself! Belly laugh

    EDIT:  Nope, can't help myself.  It's just too good!

    Classic Gem Promo: World of Aden: Thunderscape and Entomorph
    Both games set in the World of Aden up to 70% off

    Thuderscape and Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall, two very different classic RPG titles sharing the original setting of the World of Aden, are available bundled on GOG.com with 70% discount. That's only $3.58 for both for the next 24 hours.

    In 1995, that is 19 years ago, Strategic Simulations Inc. set out to create a whole new fantastic universe that would become a canvas, on which they would depict epic campaigns and heroic sagas. The legendary developer team decided to take the popular pulp-fantasy tropes, put them through a grinder, mix in some steampunk pizzazz for that special coppery aftertaste, and slap a catchy--and a tad pompous--name on their creation. Thus, the World of Aden came to existence. It never became as popular as some of the fantastic realms of eternal fame, and it only witnessed two heroic campaigns in the end, but it surely deserves its place in the role-play gaming hall of fame. Today, GOG.com invites you for a trip to this amazing forgotten land.

    Thunderscape presents you with many time-proven RPG ideas that work together so well, that it's astounding that anyone would want to modify them. You get a party of six brave champions, a large gameworld to explore, lots of items to collect, stats to build, and enemies to slay. While roaming the world, the game progresses in real-time, switching to turn-based combat whenever you approach (or get ambushed by) an opponent. With everything that made dungeon crawlers so successful in the 1990 and some very distinctive steampunk-ish feel, this game is highly recommended to all cRPG fans looking for a challenge!

    Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall is a RPG-ish action-adventure game set in the world of Aden, introduced by Thunderscape. This isn't a sequel though, but a completely stand-alone tale presented by different means. This time we get a top-down view, a single character, and more puzzle and combat-oriented gameplay. With the ability to morph into insect-like beasts to take on your enemies, an intriguing story, and enough in-game content to keep you busy for 40 hours, this classic title deserves to become a part of your collection of PC oldies.

    Grab them both for only $3.58, today! You can also get just Thuderscape or Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall with 60% off discount, that is for $2.39 each. If you already own one of them on GOG.com, you can get the other with the higher discount rate, that's for only $1.79. The Classic Gem Promo offer lasts until Tuesday, January 21, at 10:59AM GMT.

    Indie Gem Promo: Aarklash: Legacy
    It's new, it's shiny, and it comes with active pause tactical combat!

    Aarklash Legacy, a modern top-down RPG title reminescent of the early 2000s classics, complete with robust tactical combat mechanics and an active pause system, is available 60% off on GOG.com. That's only $8.39 for the next 24 hours!

    It's time to gather the party and venture forth, into a new fascinating fantasy world, where a sinister plot and sudden betrayal force a party of mercenaries to embark upon a dangerous journey. In the land of neverending turmoil, in which the forces of Chaos, Destiny, and Darkness tirelessly fight each other for dominion over people's souls, their quest takes them into the dark corners of the world where mysteries that were never intended to see the light of day lie in wait. Should they be discovered, the already unsteady foundations of reality will tremble. It is up to you to lead a group of heroes and take a chance at putting things right.

    Aarklash Legacy is a modern RPG title that contains many things you loved about the greatest classics of the genre. An intriguing story takes your company of four heroes on a quest full of danger and opportunity. The game excels in combat mechanics, which give you great control over every enemy encounter tactics. The deep battle system will also present you with some extra challenge, as there are some factors present, that usually you wouldn't need to take into account while playing a computer RPG. Don't worry though--with the time-proven active pause mechanics, you'll always be able to plan out your approach and issue all the orders. 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!

    Are you ready to discover a whole new realm of adventure, magic, and bravery? Step into the world of Aarklash Legacy, for only $8.39 on GOG.com. The 60% off release discount offer will last until Thursday, January 23, at 10:59AM GMT.
