Zoom zoom zoom.

TrickStyle, an arcadey hoverboard racer, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s your next-door neighbor!
In a distant future where jobs are few and hardly necessary, people have to keep busy somehow. Some watch television, some hop on rocket-powered hoverboards and make an afternoon out of it. TrickStyle is a game where speed and style reign supreme. Here, you’ll zoom along twisted, neon-laced futuristic landscapes (a pleasant change of pace from the grungy dystopian settings we’re so used to), master increasingly more complex tricks, and get to play around with each hoverboard’s unique physics. Beautifully animated tricks and tons of personality make TrickStyle an absolutely unique, and certainly still worth trying, classic.

Eat your heart out, pro-skaters, TrickStyle is in town – DRM-free on GOG.com.

75-90% off Duke Nukem 1+2, Duke Nukem 3D, Balls of Steel, Manhattan Project.

The Duke. Men want to be him, women want to be with him. The manliest of men, the ultimate male role model. He’s been kicking ass on GOG.com for years, but on December 31 2015, Duke has to step out to get more bubble gum. On that day, all Duke Nukem games on GOG.com will be removed from our catalog, but we are in talks with the new rightsholders to bring them back as swiftly as possible. That’s why we bid you a farewell for now, Duke: with every Duke Nukem game at 90% off as a bundle, or -75% individually.

The Duke’s humble beginnings lie with Duke Nukem 1 + 2, two explosively cool run-n-gun platformers where Duke kicks his very first alien ass, travels in time, and authors “Why I’m SO Great” – a retrospective and autobiography. All in the year 1997, a dystopian near-future.

Years later, on January 29, 1996, our time: Duke makes history. Total meltdown follows the release of Duke Nukem 3D in which we finally see the world through the man’s eyes. It’s a world of pornography, violence, and candid obscenity. Duke’s world. And we are entranced. By the campy risque, and by the unadulterated joy of Duke’s violent adventures and one-liners.

Then, for years Duke rides the hype-train: in 1997, we behold his Balls of Steel – a pinball game warmly welcomed for its smooth, realistic physics and plenty of Duke on the side. In the year 2002, Duke goes back to basics in Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, a modern 3D sidescrolling platformer that’s nothing if not a fun and mindless pleasure.

This is not where the Duke Nukem legacy ends, but it is where we part ways – for now. So …read more

You know the thing about chaos? It’s fair.

Chaos Reborn, a tactical strategy/RPG of magical battles, is available now DRM-free on GOG.com for Windows, Mac and Linux with a 50% launch discount.

Magical warfare is as much a battle of wits as it is of well-honed skill and pure cosmic happenstance. Sweeping waves of fire, ground-shattering earthquakes or gigantic sapphire dragons may not suggest strong elements of strategic thinking at first glance. Learning how and whether to use each spell, though, that’s what distinguishes a respectable spellcaster from a sideshow trickster.

The Realms of Chaos are in constant turmoil and this is your opportunity to outsmart your magic-wielding opponents, both in multiplayer and single-player scenarios. The turn-based combat and the bluffing mechanics call for careful positioning and shrewd misdirection akin to a game of chess or even poker. Βut no matter how well you prepare, be sure to always stay on your toes as the gear customization options and the chances of spell misfires will pose chaotic challenges, resulting in an intense cocktail of mentally engaging fun.

In the press
“Chaos Reborn is quite simply the best strategy game on PC this year” — Kotaku

“Chaos Reborn is already a brilliant update of an absolute classic.” — Eurogamer

Utilise your arcane bluffing skills to spread deliberate Chaos Reborn, DRM-free on GOG.com. The 50% launch discount will last until December 30 1:59 PM GMT.

Holier-than-thou. Also with better units.

Warrior Kings: Battles, the sequel to the epic 3D RTS about feuding warlords, now DRM-free on GOG.com.

The Holy Empire of Orbis, a vast theocratic state, still lies shattered and fragmented, 100 years after the bloody rebellion against its corrupt Patriarch threw it into disarray. Now an usurper sits on the throne and a new general must rise and try to reunite all provinces in order to overthrow the evil Lord Protector.

In Warrior Kings: Battles resource gathering and army-building are crucial but more often than not battles are decided by the clever tactics and timely use of formations your troops employ during combat. The innovative Alignment system will further branch the campaign’s storyline and your multiplayer strategy options, depending on which path you choose to follow. Do you favor thick fortifications and grandiose units? Then the theocratic Imperial path is your calling. Maybe you prefer to command large numbers of disposable barbarians, backed up by demonic witchcraft. If so, the life of the Pagan is the one for you. Or you can let technological and financial supremacy tip the scales in your favor as you usher a new Renaissance upon the fragmented kingdoms.

Battle for the glory of a reunited Holy Empire and crush the opposing warlords in Warrior Kings: Battles, available now, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Get Bio Menace FREE, and up to 75% off Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, Quake, and DOOM.

Happy Holidays from the GOG.com team!
The holiday season is here. The world, in all its little shopping frenzies and chaotic reunions, seems to slow down just a little. It slows to taste the crisp winter air, to be childishly entranced by all the lights and colors.

As for us, we’re going to celebrate with a little something special.
With a new free game in our catalog: Bio Menace, something of a mix between the smooth and joyous gameplay of Commander Keen, and the alien weirdness of the original Duke Nukem platformers. The spacey 2D shooter by 3D Realms is now part of our selection of free, truly worth playing, classics.

With a Happy Holiday Sale from GOG.com & Bethesda:
Have a holly, jolly discount. It’s the best time of the year. We don’t know if there will be snow, but have a cup of deal. It’s up to 75% off the entire Bethesda catalog on GOG.com – including the three and only classic Fallout games, as well as some of the best shooters in history: the retro Wolfenstein 3D & Return to Castle duo, The Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II & Final DOOM alongside the Quake series (from the singleplayer gory of Quake + Quake II, through the timeless mutliplayer mayhem of Quake III). Finally, there’s the chance to explore the history of The Elder Scrolls with classics like Morrowind, Battlespire, and Redguard.

As always, any purchase from the Bethesda catalog on GOG.com comes with a free copy of The Elder Scrolls: Arena and The Elder Scrolls Chapter II: Daggerfall!

Looking for last-minute gifts? There ya’ go.
The sale will last until December 29, 4:59 AM GMT.

Have a happy holiday season!

And that’s what our Weekly Staff Picks: Puzzled are designed to do: so grab any of these five excellent brain-ticklers and try to match them with their corresponding discounted prices! No, wait, scratch that. We just went ahead and solved this one for you.

Despite our best efforts, our glorious alien overlords have finally managed to put us under their thumb. Naturally, their first order of business is to ensure earthlings are pulling their own weight. You are to manage a vast 3D Infinifactory (designed by the fine people behind Spacechem) where you can roam free, set up your own assembly lines and allocate all available resources in an efficient fashion that will optimize production. But try not to die in the process. That would be most unproductive.

Fighting against aliens may seem futile at times but at least those buggers (usually) have a face. What are you going to do when you come up against the faceless Tessellated Intelligence System-100 that speaks only in Code? Why, try out-coding it, of course. Use your mad programming skills and binary creativity to rewrite corrupted code segments, solve its taunting puzzles and uncover the curious truth behind its real function.

“Lay off gaming and get yourself a job!”, they say. “But I already have one!”, you reply. You’ve been playing Human Resource Machine, haven’t you?

Deep down and dirty.

UnderRail an underground turn-based survival RPG, is now DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount.

But that girl needed her medicine and, dammit, even if our entire race is nearly extinct, what we stand for must endure. You clench that makeshift shotgun in your radio-blistered hand and march straight ahead.

Do you miss the complex role-playing mechanics and challenging combat of the original Fallouts? UnderRail‘s got you covered… under tons upon tons of concrete, where life is still somewhat tolerable. Brave the horrors of an unforgiving world and venture through the underground complex of metro stations that the survivors now call home. Craft your own equipment, master turn-based combat and navigate the politics of opposing factions vying for power over those last remaining scraps of civilization.

Up to 70% off Evil Genius, Commandos, Aliens vs. Predator, Empire Earth and more.

Way back when winter days were the longest of the year, when time stood still in anticipation of the holidays: of the time off from all responsibility, of flashy, shiny new fun, and of pure, undistilled, childlike wonder. That’s when we would truly game, become wholly immersed in the games we play – uninterrupted by daily troubles – shaping our tastes and forming the fondest of memories. Our Weekend Promo will take you to these Wayback Winters, where our childhood classics and retro stylings are king.

Become an Evil Genius, the ultimate childhood fantasy. Sure, James Bond was cool – but it was the shroud of mystery, brilliance, and badassery that made his villains far more intriguing, and their eventual downfall so damn disappointing. But times are changing, now you have grown into a true Evil Genius, and you will not make the same mistakes as your predecessors.

Dark shrubbery hugs your exposed ankles, an unfortunate strand of grass playfully pets your nostrils. This is no laughing matter. You are the Commandos, an elite team of soldiers: each a master of their discipline, together masters of infiltration. It is no laughing matter because you’re about to take out an Axis outpost – you wait for the signal, sights focused on a particularly at-ease enemy soldier. He blinks three times in your general direction, just as he has so many times before. Somebody pulls a power generator lever, right on cue. By the time the power grinds back on, only the three of you remain: the Commandos

Fast, precise, and unpredictable – the ultimate warriors out there. It’s Aliens vs. Predator, with humanity somewhere in between. This absolute FPS classic gets everything right for a truly fast and deadly …read more
