Fledgling explorers can also now get the base game for 50% off!

Set in the spunky 19th century, Renowned Explorers takes you on a worldwide adventure across the most remote reaches of the world. With your trusty team of scouts, sweet-talkers and bruisers, you’ll encounter ferocious creatures, unappreciative natives and all kinds of danger.
One danger you won’t be facing is running out of cool destinations, since now there’s even More to Explore! This DLC brings two new expeditions: The Andean Adventure atop an ancient Incan mountain, and The Lost Island, where you will unlock the prehistoric secrets of the mysterious Anti-Explorers. Should you need a breather from all this adventuring, take a moment to chill by the Campfire, swapping lifestories with your companions, earning some nifty upgrades, or building on the crew relationships.

Rage against the machines

Hard Reset: Redux, a heavily upgraded edition of the cult-classic cyberpunk FPS, is now available for pre-order, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 10% per-order discount or 85% for owners of Shadow Warrior (2013)!

Humanity is under siege. Bezoar, the last bastion of mankind, is being attacked by bloodthirsty machines seeking to download its extensive data-bank, where billions of digitized human minds are stored. It’s time for a last stand. It’s time for hard decisions. It’s time for a Hard Reset.

The relentless gunplay, the wanton destruction, and the hardcore sensibilities that gained the original its cult fame, are back with a vengeance. Hard Reset: Redux brings a barrage of improvements, including better visuals, a new enemy type, a sweet dash move, a mean-looking cyber-katana, optimized performance, and an all-around more balanced experience. Definitely a far more enjoyable one than what our mechanical overlords would want us to have, should they were allowed to succeed…

Pre-order Hard Reset: Redux, the definitive edition of this intense techno-thriller, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 10% discount. Owners of Shadow Warrior (2013), who want to smash some mean machines, can instead take advantage of the whopping, permanent 85% loyalist discount!
The 10% discount will last until June 10, 2:29 PM UTC.

Check out the trailer, before the machines take it down:

Up to 80% off Children of the Nile, Lethis: Path of Progress, Prison Architect, Evil Genius, and more

Every game collection needs them. The concrete, sturdy foundations upon which you shall build in an effort to someday touch the sky (and then probably blow it up). Foundations made by Brick and Mortar, with a lot of meticulous planning and strategic thinking holding it together. For that you need only the best gaming materials, like those found in this lineup, which celebrates city-building, management, and pre-emptive problem-solving without cutting any entertainment corners.

Make sure you build a stable social pyramid before you attempt to erect any actual ones or your Children of the Nile might decide that you are not the god-sent Pharaoh they were promised. After all, letting your Egyptian empire go to waste is no way to start an immortal dynasty, now is it?

So these self-righteous humans think they own the place, don’t they? Just because legions of gamers have helped them clear up gazillions of dungeons in the past, doesn’t mean things can’t change! Rule the Dungeons 2 with a spiky fist, kick out the intruders, and then take the fight to their posh, overworld kingdoms.

Lay down those Brick and Mortar foundations with the most solid materials known to gamers and see your collection grow to a well-planned, unshakable structure that anybody would feel proud to call their own. Choose your building blocks among: Lethis: Path of Progress, Evil Genius, Prison Architect, and more!
The promo will last until June 3, 9:59 AM UTC.

Dum vivimus, vivamus

Caesar™ IV, a pinnacle of city-building strategies set in ancient times, is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know, and neither were the Roman aqueducts which are still subjects of study and praise by many a scholar. The same is true for the majestic structures they left behind, which still stand proud all across Europe. Want to know how they managed to erect these marvels of the ancient world? Assume control of the economy, planning, building, and managment of Roman settlements in challenging scenarios set during the Kingdom, Republic, and Empire eras, and watch your humble village grow to become a sprawling ancient metropolis. Even back then, people were very concerned with public services, hygiene, spectacles, and overall quality of life, so it’s up to you to balance the complex needs of your citizens with the realities of city management, if you want to be remembered more as a Marcus Aurelius and less as a Nero.

Plan, build, and sustain a Roman metropolis that could stand the test of time in Caesar™ IV, DRM-free on GOG.com.
