It just won’t stop growing.

Originally released in early 2011 – Terraria – the infinite pixel playground, receives yet another MAJOR content update. So major it could be an expansion pack, but it’s not – it’s free and it’s four years in the making – because the developers love you so very much.

Terraria is an open-world platformer in which you build, mine, craft, and fight your way across big and diverse procedurally-generated realms. If you have yet to take your first baby steps in one of the most immense video games out there, this is a wicked good time to get your copy while it’s 25% off for the next 48 hours – that’s until July 2, at 4:59 PM GMT.

The 1.3 Changelog is huge – it’s over 20,000 characters long and includes new features like a fresh Expert mode, a photo/camera mode for the creative, new environments and enemies, and hundreds of gameplay changes and quality of life fixes like revamped town NPCs. Somewhere down the list of changes you’ll also find a bullet point that mentions over 800 new items to discover. No biggie though.

Pick up your copy or grab the newest patch right now, and get lost, in the biggest sandbox adventure ever!

The Caribbean Dream.

Windward, a sandbox adventure on the high seas, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get it now for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 35% launch discount.

Love it or hate it, Windward is making waves.

Sail the seas alone, or form a band with your friends thanks to seamless multiplayer drop-in/drop-out – then trade, pillage or plunder in this: your 100% own pirate adventure. Windward is a beautiful, free, and tranquil experience that may just float your boat.

Interlaced memories.

Her Story, a completely innovative FMV detective game from the mastermind behind Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, is available now for Windows and Mac OS X. Get it DRM-free on GOG.com with a 17% launch discount.!

The year is 1994. A woman is interviewed by the Police, her husband gone missing. Her every word recorded and interlaced via police camera. It is now between you, your dusty mothball computer, and Her Story. The premise is simple – scan the database of seven live-action interviews to make sense of the disappearance, to analyze every word, facial expression, every moment of silence. One keyword at a time.

With a completely fresh take on storytelling, and archaic yet deeply familiar gameplay based on simple keyword searches, Her Story asks a pittance for a memory. Check out the rave reviews, and make sure to grab the game DRM-free, right here on GOG.com. The 17% launch discount will last for one week, until Friday, July 3, at 12:59 PM GMT.

In the press:
“Her Story is so masterful in its simple, personal, and idiosyncratic delivery that even time wasted is filled with charm and intrigue.” — Digital Spy

“As well as being a superb detective game, Her Story might be the best FMV game ever made.” — Rock , Paper, Shotgun

“It’s been days since I finished the game, but I can’t stop thinking about it. Her Story nails the dark, voyeuristic nature of true crime and the curiosity that follows. The worst thing I can say about Her Story is that, eventually, there’s nothing else left to find.” — Polygon

Finally, if you prefer a more direct approach, there’s the timeless classic (cross-play enabled!) Aliens Versus Predator 2000.

First-person sci-fi title Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri, the 1996 combat simulator, has just come exclusively to GOG.com and is available DRM-free for Windows.

You, Nikola ap Io, are the one that will lead Strike Force Centauri into combat as what first seemed like the typical covert operation turns into a full-out assault.

What does the press say?

“A breakthrough in outdoor 3-D action sims, Terra Nova gives mech games and flight sims something to aspire to.” — GameSpot

The fairytale journey just got a new dimension!

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power, Frozenbyte’s first venture into 3D gameplay in the Trine series due to release in Autumn 2015, is ready to pre-order on GOG.com – experience the current version of the game before it releases for Windows with an up to 25% pre-order discount.

Before we go on, we have some good news for those who have yet to experience this series: Trine Enchanted Edition and Trine 2: Complete Story have been priced down at 75% off until Wednesday, July 1st at 1:59 PM GMT to celebrate the coming of part three!

Starting from the first game, the Trine series has been well known for being a great physics platformer with gorgeous, colorful graphics, and a fairytale atmosphere. The series’ third instalment comes back with all those qualities and tosses in a new dimension – but that isn’t the only thing Frozenbyte introduces in Trine 3, as there are also brand-new single-player focused adventures called Lost Pages, aimed to be the ultimate test of skill, requiring platforming technique and puzzle-solving cleverness.

This title comes bundled with GOG Galaxy support, including achievements. And for those of you who just cannot wait until release – an early, in-development version of the game is available as a bonus goodie today: just about half of Trine 3 (three Chapters and three Lost Pages) is already playable in single-player and co-op during the pre-order period. The in-development version of the game is available as a bonus goodie, so our standard pre-order refund policy still applies – you can always cancel the preorder and get a full refund even if you already played the in-development build. The game isn’t finished, so we won’t be able to offer technical support during pre-orders – …read more
