Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville, a post-apocalyptic city manager/survival game, is available now for Windows and Mac OS X, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 15% launch discount!

Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is the third and most ambitious entry in the post-apocalyptic city building/survival series. Though its roots are based in the land of award-winning, browser-based gaming – Rebuild has come a long way to become the full-fledged title that we see today. Indeed, Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is a massive management game in which you’re in charge of building a settlement of survivors in a world barely recovering from a zombie apocalypse. It’s SimCity meets Walking Dead – with 200,000 words of lore and quests, and even more ridiculous numbers of quests and things to do, there are hundreds of gameplay hours waiting to be discovered in the gangs of deadsville.

Eat your brain out, it’s Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville available now, DRM-free on GOG.com! The launch discount will last for one week, until Friday, June 5, 3:59 GMT.

All in pristine condition that gives players all of the necessary information required to master the game.

Epic, old school, hardcore.

Serpent in the Staglands, a true modern cRPG adventure, is available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount!

Serpent in the Staglands is a delightfully pixelated take on the cRPG genre. Inspired by a bronze age Transylvania – the world you’ll be exploring is a fully realised setting filled with lore, politics, and its own brand of trouble. You are a god. A kind of god anyway, a celestial being placed on earth with no way home and your immortality slipping. Survival is your one concern – in classic cRPG style, Serpent in the Staglands isn’t here to be easy or to hold your hand – it’s a non-linear story on a vast, unmarked map filled with quests that are yours to follow (keep your notes handy!). With hundreds of skills and a combat system that focuses on being prepared, Serpent in the Staglands is about to give you its own brand of hell.

Can you sruvive Serpent in the Staglands? You can find out now, DRM-free on GOG.com! The launch discount will last for 24 hours, until Friday, May 29, 11:59 AM GMT.

Bard’s Tale Fans Rejoice!

Dragon Wars, widely considered to be one of the greatest Bard’s Tale spiritual sequels in existence, is available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com!

Dragon Wars was born when the team behind Bard’s Tale (as well as Wasteland and other tactical gems) realized that they’re on to a recipe ripe that blows their previous RPGs out of the water. A design philosophy that merges Bard’s Tale and Wasteland innovations was sure to rock the gaming scene forever. But it sold poorly. Sales, however, were far from representative of the quality of this production – Dragon Wars was lauded by critics and its niche of fans as a true culmination of RPG history to date. With a complex skill tree for every character, varied and numerous friendly or enemy NPCs, and open-ended quest lines – fans of Bard’s Tale-style games had a true reason to rejoice. Now we have one too.

Fight valiantly in the Dragon Wars, available today DRM-free on GOG.com!

A new contract and alternative look for Yennefer.

Kinda like FTL meets Mad Max.

Convoy, a tactical roguelite inspired by Mad Max and FTL, is available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount!

Heavily armored vehicles, big bad guns, endless desert scapes. And it just so happens we’re in the mood for that maximum madness kind of thing. Convoy is a squad-based tactical survival game with a focus on random encounters and tough choices. Your spaceship is damaged, a barren excess begs to be explored, but it’s anyone’s guess just what you’ll find out there as you scavenge for those last few bits of hardware. You’ll hang by a thread in high-speed tactical car chases while commanding a squad that’s truly yours. Best of all, when you die – you die. The wasteland does not forgive.

The wasteland is far from silent. You can also take the sounds with you, whenever you go for a ride with the Original Soundtrack.

Become a fuel-injected suicide machine in Convoy, available today, DRM-free on GOG.com! The launch discount will last for one week, until Tuesday, June 2, at 9:59 AM GMT.
