Retro done right.

There has been way too many games recently aiming to cash in on our nostalgia without ever delivering what they promise: a real throwback to the classic gaming ideas and authentic retro feeling. Not this time! Here, even the story is perfectly nostalgic. The shovel-wielding hero has come to this land with two goals: to defeat the evil Enchantress and quest for his lost beloved. But, between Shovel Knight and his beloved stands a cadre of villainous knights. These terrible foes, known as The Order of No Quarter, have been dispatched to prevent the hero from reaching the Enchantress, and will pursue their mission at any cost. If you love games with perfect platforming, beautiful art, infectious music, crazy bosses, humor and levity, and real heart… this one is for you!

Shovel Knight is a sweeping classic action adventure game with awesome gameplay, memorable characters, and an 8-bit retro aesthetic. It’s a hot mashup of new and old! You play as the eponymous Shovel Knight, a small knight with a huge quest. He wields a Shovel Blade: a multipurpose weapon whose techniques have now been lost to the ages. Always honest and helpful, Shovel Knight is a shining example of the code of Shovelry: Slash Mercilessly and Dig Tirelessly! With classic NES-era platforming gameplay, great humor, excellent level design, and perfectly captured graphical style of old, this amazing little gem offers to take you on a nostalgia trip you won’t soon forget.

Prepare to jump, dig, dig-jump, and jump-dig in the amazing limited-palette realm of Shovel Knight, for $14.99 on GOG.com.

Welcome to LifeNET social network. For the next 24 hours, Cthulhu wants to be your friend!

When the Gruckezber Corporation selected you to be one of the very first magrunners, you felt that a whole new chapter of your life is opening before you. You were going to be a field tester, first to use the incredible mag-tech devices. On top of that–the testing facility turned out to be a deep space station! So much excitement. So much adventure. Then all of a sudden the world came tumbling down, scaring you out of your wits. You couldn’t have known that, but the stars did align in a particular pattern, ripping a hole in what you call reality. Making way for us. Now, I look at you, mortal. I see through your puny little soul–every emotion, every dream, every intent, and fear. In a way, you’re interesting to me. I will study you, as you try to escape your doom, clinging to that primitive fetish of a magnetic modulator, as a drowning human grasps at straw. Run, jump, think, look for a way out, magrunner, for it amuses me. I’ll be smiling with all my mouths, when I consume your world.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is an action-puzzle game in which wits, reflexes, and good understanding of physics gives you a fighting chance against the creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos. The future scientists opened yet another can of worms (squirming, pale, tentacle-like worms, that is) and now you must face a reality collapse allowing ancient monster to enter our world from their own realm of twisted nightmares. The storyline is involving and grand, the characters are colorful, and the puzzles will challenge your mind in many creative ways. With original gameplay mechanics, imaginative setting, and top-notch visuals, this game is something that no fan of action-puzzle games should pass on, even though there’s virtually no chance for a cake, and almost certain apocalypse delivered by the Great Old Ones at the end. That is, if you can’t stop the inevitable.

Jump right in the twisted futuristic world of Magrunner: Dark Pulse, FREE on GOG.com, until Thursday, June 19, at 12:59PM GMT. While you wait for your free copy of the game, check out the 30 excellent Bundle Deals simultaneously gracing our front page, back to back with 30 fantastic Flash Sales, coming in a great tidal wave with new offers surfacing on hourly basis in our 2014 DRM-Free Summer Sale.

Bringing back the best traditions of eXtraterrestrial COMbat!

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we’re also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it! In this robust strategy game you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from an alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions. The game comes with a full MP3 sountrack!

The alien overlords’ plan was as simple, as it was brilliant: “wait for the 2014 DRM-Free Summer Sale to start on GOG.com, and conquer the Earth with minimum resistance while everyone is busy tracking the Flash Deals”. Stay vigilant, defender of our home planet! Only you can foil the extraterrestrials’ scheme and show them that the human race is not to be messed with, in Xenonauts, for $19.99 on GOG.com. The 20% off special release discount will last until Monday, June 23, at 1:00PM GMT.

A 2014 digital release of the 1993 remake of the 1984 classic!

As a fledgling 15th century explorer you have been given a mandate by the Spanish Crown to set sail for the New World and establish new settlements for the fortune and glory of Spain. You will have complete control over every aspect of your expedition – from the initial provisioning of your voyage, to the construction of forts and missions on newly discovered continents. Key to your survival will be how you interact with the native population of the New World – negotiate with a tribe’s Chief to establish peaceful trade ties or wipe out entire villages and plunder their resources.

Seven Cities of Gold: Commemorative Edition lets you step into the role of Christopher Columbus and chart a course to an unknown world of discovery, exploration, and conquest! The Commemorative Edition of Seven Cities of Gold is a remake of the 1984 classic, featuring enhanced graphics and sound. Choose to explore a historically accurate map of the Americas in the 15th century or a randomly generated New World. Hire men for your journey and equip your ship with food, animals, arms, and other items for trading. Command a series of daring expeditions to the New World – take control of mapping uncharted wilderness, building far-flung outposts, and establishing trade relations with over 8 different indigenous tribes.

Fill up your coffers as you trade, loot, or mine your way to new resources and treasures in Seven Cities of Gold: Commemorative Edition, for only $5.99 on GOG.com!

The GOG.com crew would like to heartily thank our user IAmSinistar for making this release possible! This is yet another game that made its way into our classic catalog with the help of our fantastic community.

A fast-paced roguelike-like old-school medium-core single-serving first-person gun-shooter. WHAT?!

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.

A dungeon-crawling adventure to last a lifetime (served in 10-minute chunks)!

Here’s the perfect coffee-break game: fight your way through fantasy dungeons in as little as 10 minutes. You’ll never play the same location twice. Each dungeon is randomly generated, yet always (somehow) winnable. Explore the finely-tuned gameplay as you learn more and more impressive ways to beat vicious bosses and unlock new items, gods and heroes to play. This is the classic roguelike play re-imagined as a unique award-winning single-screen puzzle adventure!

Desktop Dungeons is a quick-play, roguelike-like puzzle game that gives you 10-20 minutes of dungeon-crawling action per serving. Casual players can enjoy endless coffee-break gaming sessions in infinitely random dungeons, while hardcore enthusiasts can unearth the game’s subtleties and tackle challenges of unrealistic viciousness. Down all paths lies frequent death, easy accessibility and the urge to play just one more dungeon. The Goatperson DLC adds a new playable class to Desktop Dungeons’ already large roster of characters. The use of this character introduces one of the classic roguelike problems: hunger! It also enables a useful Item Lottery for players with more gold than sense, as well as a series of unique Triple Quests that pit players against three randomly generated dungeons in a row.

Both Desktop Dungeons and the Goatperson DLC are available 33% off (that’s $9.99 and $3.32 respectively) on GOG.com, until Tuesday, June 17, at 9:59AM GMT. Set out on an neverending adventure, today!

Notice
Desktop Dungeons has a completely optional cloud-saving system that’s useful if you plan to play the same Kingdom on multiple machines, the browser version and mobile versions (coming soon).Your unique cloud-key can be found under My Account. In order to also enjoy the DLC features in your browser version, please use them first in your desktop version and save the game via the the cloud-saving system.
