A familiar ambience awaits…

STASIS, an istometric point-and-click horror adventure, is available now on Windows and Mac OS X – DRM-free on GOG.com with a 20% launch discount.

There is a familiar, unmistakable feeling to STASIS, an atmosphere we’ve felt before. A musical, ambient hum of decrepit machinery. Dirty, pre-rendered environments. A horrid discomfort and grime.
Through subtle graphical aesthetic, particular animation and sound design, STASIS invokes powerful memories of exploring the desolate vaults of Fallout, the twisted halls of Sanitarium, and the strangest corners of Planescape: Torment – a freak-show, a circus of nostalgia.

STASIS tells its story on a derelict spacecraft, home of self-professed gods and scientific progress, where everything that could go wrong, did: technical failures, deaths, inhuman experiments and an orbit in decay. You’re a survivor on the lifeless, floating husk – perhaps the last, perhaps just one of the few. You hope for the latter, because your child and wife were right beside you as you fell into a deep, cryogenic sleep. With deeply ingrained old-school influences, and a soundtrack designed by the man behind the 90’s most iconic gaming sounds (including Fallout, Planescape: Torment and Sanitarium) STASIS strikes an unprecedented balance between a modern revival, and a classic aura.

If you’re up for more classic intensity, you can also pick up the Deluxe Edition, complete with Unique Backgrounds, a PDF Art Book, and the incredible OST in MP3 and lossless FLAC.

The memory lives on in STASIS, available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. The launch discount will last for one week, until Monday, September 7, 12:59 PM GMT.

25-85% off SPAZ, Dead State, Rebuild 3, and Zombie Shooter.

Zombies. Can’t live with them, can’t get away from them. It wasn’t too long ago that gaming’s Zombie Renaissance peaked and unleashed upon us an army of a thousand mindless, drooling, unrelenting zombie-gaming experiences. Today, we’re picking out the cream of the crop: GOG.com releases filled to the brim with zombies, each with a unique take on the smash-hit-brain-eat antiheroes – each with discounts from 25-85% off it’s Weekly Staff Picks: Braaaains!

What’s the first thing you think of when you think zombie things? Oh, did you say chaos, bullets, and destruction? Zombie Shooter 1 & 2 are a pair of simple and brutal zombie killing simulators: isometric, trigger-happy, massive levels, mayhem. The premise is really as simple as a zombie’s thought process – get out there, make a fine mess, probably get blown up somewhere along the way. It’s quintessential zombie action, twice.

Chaos and destruction are cool and all, but what if you prefer a slower, more tactical approach? Shoot for Dead State, a tactical zombie survival RPG with turn-based combat, and a non-linear story with plenty of upgrades and unlocks – as well as elements of base-building. Do you have the brains and the brawn to survive the apocalypse?

Short on the brawn? Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is all about the braaaains. It’s a post-zombie-apocalypse city-building sim that came a long, looong way from it’s already immensely popular, hyper-addictive, browser-based origins. It’s a massive management game in which you’re in charge of building a settlement of survivors in a world barely recovering from the zombie apocalypse. It’s SimCity meets Walking Dead – with 200,000 words of lore and quests to soak up at your own pace.

What if Zombies had made it into space? It’s a reasonable thing to …read more

Where syndicates reign supreme…

Satellite Reign an open world, modern spiritual successor to Syndicate, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with full support for GOG Galaxy achievements and leaderboards! Blow past the corporate ladder at 20% off for the first week.

If you asked half the crew at GOG.com what their favorite game of all time is, a good chunk of us would say Syndicate. While the dirty cyberpunk settings and hard-as-nails gameplay did give us years and years of classic gaming to come back to, Satellite Reign may just be the breath of fresh, corporate espionage air that we’ve been waiting for.
Satellite Reign, from the very days of its conception, was a modern Syndicate in everything but the name. A gritty cyberpunk world ruled by malicious megacorps, and a squad of professionals prepared to take down the system. You’ll get to roam around a huge and filthy, open-world city which isn’t just cool, but also gives you a fantastic tactical freedom in how you tackle each mission – there is no one right way to achieve your ends. Between tons of high-tech goodness and customization, there is an ever-present Syndicate feel to the game with one unquestionable improvement – freedom, freedom is in the musty air.

For more Satellite Reign goodness, you can also pick up the Original Soundtrack, Art Book, and a prequel Novella!

Return to the Syndicate, in spirit, with Satellite Reign, available now – DRM-free on GOG.com The launch promo will last until Friday, September 4, 13:59 PM GMT.

Price drop, fixes and free DLC!

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms, a heavy hack’n’slash action RPG with a two-sided twist, just received a price-drop, free DLC for everyone who owns the game, and a few tweaks and updates!

Take control of the Devourer, a demon that swallows the souls of the dead and brings them back into the mortal realm as puppets. But is the demon their master – or their servant? Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is the first part of a sequel to the classic Kult: Heretic Kingdoms (also known as Heretic Kingdoms: Inquisition), it’s a tale of a world and its shadows – both of which you will walk with grace to overcome anything in your path, but beware that each world presents it’s own dangers and challenges.

On top of the permanent price-drop, the game is now updated with plenty of tweaks and bug fixes and a French language version. For even more gameplay, originally-exclusive DLC is now free for everyone! The DLC includes three new quests: Tholean Tablet, The Owl Amulet and The Scorpion King.

If you’re eagerly awaiting Book 2 of the story, the devs are preparing an impressive technological update to the game which will allow them to execute every bit of new content and gameplay planned into the sequel, no cutting corners. They should have more news on the update and progress on Book 2 production later in the year.

Shadows: Heretic Kingdoms is now available better and cheaper than ever, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Up to 70% off Gothic, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Leisure Suit Larry, Carmageddon, The Chronicles of Riddick and more…

How was your summer vacation? Did you take a vacation? Our summer wasn’t very vacationy, but it sure was cool. We had an amazing Summer Sale, we unleashed batches of fun upon you including Bethesda, The Forgotten Realms, Telltale, and Warhammer. We rolled out our Windows 10 support, and many of us are still playing through the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Yeah, it’s a big game.
But now, summer vacation is winding down, and while many of you are waiting for the first school-bells to ring, or unable to tell the difference – we’re going Back to Old-School for a weekend of deals up to 70% off!

What’s more summery than a long day at a theme park? The beach, maybe. But other than the beach, few things are more summery than a long day at a theme park. Rollercoaster Tycoon is the best way to design your very own summer adventure with thrill rides and waterparks, your own wonderland (don’t forget to make money!) simply put, even after all these years it’s still one of the best Tycoon series ever released.

Already missing your summer romance? Ditch the shorts and swim trunks, a leisure suit is the only way to dress for new conquests. Leisure Suit Larry‘s greatest hits and misses are a hilarious series of misadventures featuring the most loving guy in town.

Then, there is the original Gothic trilogy. There’s an eternal argument as to which one is the best (the fellow typing this can’t get enough of Gothic 3), but great open worlds and relatively few rules make these games some of the most quintessential old-school RPGs. Go anywhere anytime you want, and do your best not to accidentally kill a quest …read more

A girl’s bizarre trip…

Fran Bow, a story-driven psychological horror adventure, is available now for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com

Fran Bow is just a girl. A girl with a problem. She came home one day to find her parents gruesomely dismembered. After a desperate escape to the woods with Mr. Midnight – her only cat, and only friend – she wakes up in an unmistakably new home: the mysterious Oswald Asylum. Mr. Midnight is unfortunately missing, and that’s just not okay.
Fran Bow sets out to creep you out and terrify you with a beautifully unsettling hand-drawn art style, and and an awfully disturbing story of a girl trapped in a spiral of shock, fear, and self-administered medication. In true classic point-and-click style you’ll discover a fantastic story interspersed with puzzles, unique mini-games, and a dose of psychosis.

Grab your cat, pop your pills, Fran Bow is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com

Release: Big Pharma

Big Pharma, a capitalist dream for aspiring prescription-drug overlords, is available now on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux – DRM-free on GOG.com with a 20% launch discount.

In Big Pharma, you’re in charge of a soon-to-be-massive pharmaceutical company. You make medicine, drugs for the people (or is it the masses?). That’s a lot of responsibility, and one of the biggest questions in Big Pharma is just how much you care.
The game is a mix of business simulation, in which you’ll make all the tough decisions about your company, and a game of logic, in which you’ll plan out your production lines, recipes and the nitty gritty of your final product. It’s up to you what you make, what it takes to produce, and how you balance any potentially awful and beneficial side effects. The market is full of competition, and when we’re talking heart medicine or contraceptives, the stakes can get high. Sure, you can dominate the market with your cheap and dangerous product, but is that really winning?

Big Pharma is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com The launch discount will last until Thursday, September 3, 12:59 PM GMT.
