Cocktails and dystopian tales

VA-11 Hall-A, a bar frequented by the most intriguing patrons of dystopian Glitch City, is open now for Windows, Mac, and Linux DRM-free on GOG.com.

Everyday life is controlled by an oppressive regime, hope is fading, and personal liberty is an unattainable commodity. People need someone to share their burdens with and who better than the bartender of a downtown joint that attracts the most diverse, colorful clientele? You are that bartender and these are your people. Mix them their favorite drink, offer a sympathetic ear, and watch their stories unfold. Every drink you prepare might stir the narrative a different way and change the lives of your customers. All you need to do is help loosen their tongue and lighten their mood – then all their secrets will be yours.

Keep the drinks and the story flowing as you tend to the distressed partons of the VA-11 Hall-A bar, available now DRM-free on GOG.com.

Guilt never truly dies.

Deadlight: Director’s Cut, the enhanced edition of the moody, zombie-blasting side scroller, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 15% launch discount.

It’s 1986 and the world has ended. Half-eaten corpses fill the streets, as scavengers move about like shadows, looking for the means or a reason to stay alive in this hellish reflection of Seattle. Randall Wayne already has a reason: his family is out there and to reach them he is prepared to blast, punch, or blow up every last bastard that dares stand in his way – undead or otherwise.
The brutal encounters and the tense chase sequences now feel smoother than ever, as Director’s Cut brings more responsive controls and additional animations. Whenever you feel like stepping out of the wonderfully oppressive story, you can fire up the added Survival Arena mode to cut down the zombie hordes with new devastating weapons and conquer the leaderboards. It’s definitely something to reminisce when you browse through the Developer Diaries or the atmospheric art-book.

Delve deep into the bleak world of flesh-eating shadows with Deadlight: Director’s Cut, available now DRM-free on GOG.com. The 15% discount will last until June 28, 06:59 AM UTC.

Twitch alert + Giveaway
Join Outstarwalker on twitch.tv/gogcom on Tuesday, June 21, 4 PM UTC/ 12 PM EDT for some post apocalyptic action and a chance to win 5 GOG.com codes of Deadlight: Director’s Cut, courtesy of Deep Silver.

How many GOGlins does it take to get a balloon in the shape of Robert Frost?

Working as a group is usually about efficiency, coordination, and emergent camaraderie. But mostly it’s about silly, anarchic fun! And that’s exactly what Twitch Plays is: a hilarious collective effort to play a game using the input of everyone who participates. You can either contribute by issuing simple commands in the chat or just sit back and watch the madness unfold.

Join us today for the second spectacular GOG Plays event on Twitch.tv/GOGcom and help us achieve greatness in Grim Fandango Remastered. The objective? To get a balloon in the shape of Robert Frost!

If we complete the challenge, every GOG.com user will get 300 XP, regardless of whether they participated or not. An 100 XP boost will be handed out as consolation prize should we fail our objective. But that’s not gonna happen. Right?

The Grim Fandango Remastered event begins Sunday, June 19, at 4:00 PM UTC and will last for six hours. Bring your balloons!

Death becomes you.

NECROPOLIS a merciless action/roguelite where death is its own reward, is now available for pre-order, for Windows and Mac, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Who doesn’t enjoy a spectacular, brutal, educational death? Especially if it’s permanent, which means all your hard-earned or crafted gear, your elixirs, and any trust you had in your friends now lie shattered on the floor of an accursed, constantly-shifting dungeon.
But it also means that you get to start fresh, armed with more knowledge, better-honed skills, and additional upgrades available. So you’ve got no excuse if you die again. And again. And again. And then maybe drop in somebody else’s playthrough or have them drop in yours so that you can die together this time. And one time after that. Then two more. Yes that’s it, you’re getting the hang of this now.

Pre-order NECROPOLIS, the unforgivingly cheeky dungeon-crawler, DRM-free on GOG.com. The game is expected to be released on July 12.

Word on the street:
“Turns out life after death is pretty deadly :/ ” – Ronnie The Adventurer
“Do you feel lucky, punk?” – Snid The Monster
“Nope, there’s just no way to beat that first boss”- Dark Souls veteran

Use your cortex to dominate the courts.

Frozen Cortex, a turn-based sports management game, is available now for Windows, Mac, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 75% launch discount.

Building your roster can be just as important as guiding their positions and actions on the playfield, and if you ever get tired of the four single-player modes, you can fight your friends for the coveted title of the ultimate Frozen Cortex champion. After all, you do have that free extra copy that’s waiting to be gifted…

Play hard ball and dominate the tactical fields of Frozen Cortex, DRM-free on GOG.com. If you are addicted to the soundtrack or crave some additional customization, make sure to grab the Soundtrack Tier, the Mega Tier, or the Ultimate Tier.

Mass-produced fun.

Factorio, a labyrinth of interconnected conveyor belts and machinery of your own design, is now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com.

What is it that separates humans from wild beasts and secures us the top spot on the pyramid? Isn’t it our capacity for technological advancement, the ingenuity to build more and more complex machines and automate progress?
That’s exactly what you’ll need to do once you find yourself stranded on a hostile alien planet: start small, gather your first materials by hand, then build machines to help you mass-produce what you need, including more machines. But what you desperately need is guns, turrets, walls – something to protect yourself and your sprawling production lines from the local wildlife who doesn’t agree with your presence here.
Before the game is fully released, Wube Software LTD., the team behind Factorio, are also planning on cleaning up the GUI even further and implement a multiplayer matching server, which will enhance the fun and chaotic situations you can create with your friends even further.

Build a massive microcosm of fine-tuned production lines and keep the beasts away from your Factorio, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Note: This game is currently in development. See the FAQ to learn more about games in development, and check out the forums to find more information and to stay in touch with the community.
