Impossible is nothing. If not fun!

Impossible Creatures, an outrageous RTS that lets you “mesh” around with animal DNA and build your own mutant army, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get it now with the 40% launch discount.

Noah put two of every animal in the Ark. This was cool at the time, but now along comes Rex Chance, a ’30s war correspondent, curious to see what happens when you smush two animals into one. Why? Because DNA fusion is fun, and because he thinks there is great untapped potential in these strange pairings. Unfortunately, so does Upton Julius, the megalomaniac villain who stole the mysterious Sigma technology for himself, and is now threatening to conquer the world with his own army of mutant beasts.

Collect animal DNA, build your own unique units, and defeat Julius and his evil lieutenants in 15 different maps stretching across jungles, deserts and snow-ridden landscapes that make up the mysterious Isla Variatas. Create your own menacing winged scorpion, adorable kangaroo-shark, angry horned bear or any other Impossible Creature you desire – the possible combinations are only limited by your own imagination (or gross-out threshold). Then, go online and test your DNA-fusing skills against other wannabe-mad scientists in three different multiplayer modes.

Play God in this 3D hybrid of strategy and creativity, as your Impossible Creatures march forward, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get them now with a launch discount that will last until next Thursday, December 3rd, 1:59 PM GMT.

An epic trailer for an epic year of The Witcher.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released as one of the biggest things in RPG gaming, it’s certainly the biggest for CD PROJEKT RED, as well as for us – the GOG.com crew. We’ve helped deliver over half of all copies bought on PC, and believe us, we’re ready for more epicness.

“This year was really epic for the entire crew behind The Witcher. We launched Wild Hunt, the RPG we’ve been working on for so long, then we’ve gone above and beyond to give gamers as many free DLC as we could, and then released Hearts of Stone, which – judging from player feedback – took the game even further. And we innovated all along the way — if you compare Wild Hunt to our previous game, almost every element was improved or changed. Now we’re working on Blood and Wine, the final expansion for Wild Hunt which we will launch in 2016. To thank everyone for being with us this whole time, we’ve prepared something special — enjoy the Epic Trailer!” said Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, Game Director, CD PROJEKT RED.

Mechanical perfection.

Unmechanical Extended, the adorable puzzle-exploration title gets bigger, now DRM-free on GOG.com. Grab it today with the 60% discount!

It may have originally been released in 2012, but it’s still one of the best looking indie games out there. That, and the numerous awards for visual design, are a testament to its beauty. Unmechanical is a mind-bending game of puzzles, exploration and mysterious ambiance. You’re a rotor-clad robot on a mission to turn all the cogs, pull all the levers, and balance the right scales across mazes of caves, pipes, and other twisty things.

Unmechanical Extended adds Mac and Linux support to the game, but it also adds a whole new chunk of gameplay – an alternative story of two little robots swallowed up by the darkness that lurks beneath their cities. After being separated in the caves and mazes, the only question that remains is whether you’ll save your little friend, or will he save you?

The Extended edition of unmechanical is a free upgrade for everyone who already owns the game.

Challenge your programming in Unmechanical Extended now available DRM-free on GOG.com. The launch discount will last until November 26, 1:59 PM GMT.

Welcome to your cosmic playground.

Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition & Galactic Civilizations III, the legendary and massive 4X space strategy titles, are available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. Galactic Civilizations III features GOG Galaxy support for achievements and multiplayer.

Get Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition at 75% off until Wednesday, November 25, 1:59 PM GMT.
Pick up Galactic Civilizations III and the DLC at 50% off (until Wednesday, November 25, 1:59 PM GMT), or seize the full GalCiv III + DLC package in one purchase for a 60% discount until Monday, November 23, 1:59 PM GMT.

The universe is a big, big place. A big place to comprehend, a huge place to traverse, a colossal place conquer. But in Galactic Civilizations, that’s just a minor obstacle.
Welcome to your cosmic playground.
What is GalCiv? Take Sid Meier’s Civilization, shoot it into space, and multiply by a factor of ridiculous. You see, GalCiv shows an understanding of exactly what makes the space fantasy so irresistible: the scale. Formidable scale, from the mundane day-to-day culture or politics of innumerable living creatures, through nimble fighters dwarfed by the overhanging starships, through distances that reduce our brains to overwhelmed, upset little raisins.
But for a game so incredibly large (Galactic Civilizations III actually supports up to 128 concurrent players), it also manages to ease you in with bite-sized chunks of gameplay that will form your interstellar civilization. In short, it’s actually accessible to newcomers.
Huge customizability, great humor, and awe-inspiring scale – become the elected leader, seize your power, or ascend to a higher state of being – the future is yours.

You can also pick up extra content for Galactic Civilizations III including: the Original Soundtrack, Revenge of the Snathi DLC, Mega Events DLC and Map Pack DLC.
