Which games are keeping you company this weekend?

Summer is traditionally a pretty slow time for new stuff, as everyone is assumed to be chilling outside, playing “tag” with their dog or strolling by the beach, ice-cream in hand. But it’s also a pretty good time for clearing out back yards, back pains, and backlogs!

So go on, share your Weekend Playlist with us. It can include single-player games, multiplayer games, console exclusives, anything – we are not judging. In fact, we are sharing too!

Looking for some additional inspiration? The GOG.com releases of the week might help:

– You can eliminate hordes of cartoony monsters with your towers in Kingdom Rush Frontiers.
– You can go back into space for some alternative Cold War in Battlezone 98 Redux: The Red Odyssey.
– You can sneak around a fairytale castle, being quiet as a mouse in Ghost of a Tale.
– You can fight back the smiles or just give up your sanity and become one of We Happy Few.
– You can fight an evil A.I. that wants to assimilate you and your friends in Minecraft Episode 7: Access Denied.
– You can engage in epic combat with the vast battlefields waiting inside the Ashes of the Singularity Epic Map Pack.
– You can collect provisions and weapon parts, then try to reach the ground floor, before the horrors of SKYHILL hotel get you.
– You can unleash your fury or your killer robots against other killer robots in Parkan: Iron Strategy.
– You can look for ancient technologies that will vastly improve your Galactic Civilization in the Lost Treasures DLC.

So, GOGalors, what are you playing this weekend?

Up to 80% off several Summer Sale highlights: Dying Light, SOMA, Victor Vran, Kerbal Space Program, Undertale, and more!

Maybe you were binge-watching your huge backlog of TV shows, perhaps you were splashing about in some remote beach, or you were completely broke after getting yourself a brand new A/C unit to survive the heat. Whatever your reasons for missing out on these sweet Summer Sale deals, we can’t let you go on living in regret. So we’re bringing back the Best of Summer Sale 2016! Here’s your chance to snatch any juicy deals that you missed and get your life back on track!

The zombies are dumber than you, and they can never hope to match your heavy-duty arsenal or dope parkour moves. But they’ve got the numbers, and when darkness falls, they’ve got the upper hand. Don’t ever let it reach you, or this is going to be the last Dying Light you’ll ever see.

Is who we are defined by memories, experience, or the way our creator meant it? To think is to exist, to have a SOMA, but if you want to continue down that path you’ll need to look for answers in spooky places, populated by twisted creatures that can never find you.

Demon hunter by trade, force of destruction by necessity, loot collector by habit: Victor Vran is the ultimate monsters’ bane and there’s never a dull moment when slicing, dicing, and leveling up at his side!

Continue your looting spree by picking up the Best of Summer Sale 2016 that you may have missed, going for up to -80%. You can’t really go wrong with Hyper Light Drifter, Shadowrun, Enter the Gungeon, Undertale, or any of the plenty other winners in here!

One civilization’s peril is another man’s treasure.

Galactic Civilizations III: Lost Treasures DLC makes you into an intergalactic archaeologist, seeking ancient technologies considered long lost, and is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com.

The galaxy is a vast place that stretches not only through space but also time. The relics of past civilizations, lying scattered across its stars, are brimming with untapped potential, mystical powers, and hidden knowledge that can boost your empire into a new age of prosperity. However, new colony events will still pose challenges that require you to make careful decisions and make use of the new planetary improvements and ship components to overcome them. Wielding ancient technology holds immense potential, but don’t forget that it’s your Ideology that will ultimately decide your empire’s destiny.

Return of the killer robots.

Parkan: Iron Strategy, a first-person action/strategy taking place in a planetary system populated by battle-hardened bots, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com.

The Labyrinth calls to you again. You’re back in that network of war-ravaged planets, whose resources are being contested among several mechanical tribes, and you need to stand your ground. As a well-armed Captain, you can engage the enemy face-to-face with your devastating laser, 4-pack missile launcher, autocannon, or electromagnetic weapon, turning enemies to scrap or entering and clearing buildings to capture them. But you can also keep some distance, sending your killer-bot troops to do your dirty work and managing production and upgrades from inside one of your Command Bunkers or HQ robots. If you are feeling creative, you can even make warbots of your own design, then deploy them on the battlefield or hop inside them and spread fire on the local wildlife and your mechanical foes.

Command, fight, research, and pilot your army of killing machines in the five-part campaign of Parkan: Iron Strategy, DRM-free on GOG.com.

You can check out anytime you like…

SKYHILL, a hellish hotel with horrors standing between you and the necessary supplies in every room, is available now for Windows, Mac, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com, with a 25% launch discount.

Thought your penthouse suite on the 100th floor was above the terrible World War III aftermath? Think again. Post-apocalyptic room service is notoriously lousy, so now you must begin your painful descent, scavenge every hotel room for food and supplies, try to cobble together your own makeshift weapons, and use them to break out of this SKY-HELL. You never thought the other guests worthy of your attention before but avoiding to mingle is no longer an option. See, they’ve all been turned into bloodthirsty mutants who want to hug your insides, and every turn-based confrontation with them is a challenge of your skills, gear, and tactical thinking. It could also very well mean your end. But keep leveling up as you climb down the hotel floors and you might just make it out in one piece. Eventually.

Explore every nook and cranny, die a lot, then come back to face the randomly-generated rooms of SKYHILL hotel all over again, DRM-free on GOG.com.
The 25% discount will last until August 3, 12:59 PM UTC.

Once you escape, move on to the six gigantic maps where victory is decided by how well you can adapt to each objective and the challenges posed by the map layout. Will you choke your enemies’ resource intake, try to sneak up on them, or overwhelm them with superior numbers?

Welcome to our jolly dystopia.

We Happy Few, a stylish action/adventure about escaping a city of oppressive happiness, is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Did you take your happiness pill today? Please try not to skip on your regular doses, otherwise you might start hallucinating and seeing things that shouldn’t be there. Like derelict houses dressed in colourful banners. People jumping off London Bridge with a smile painted on their faces. Violent acts against those who refuse to always look on the bright side of life.
You are not seeing any of that, by any chance, are you? Because if so, you better run, hide, or take your Joy with a nice cup of tea. Fast. Before we have to find you and give it to you.

During the 6-12-month period during which they plan to keep the game In Development, Compulsion Games will add those extra elements that will make up the game’s proper narrative and complement the gameworld and mechanics that are mostly in place. Additional areas, features, NPC behaviors, and balance changes are also bound to force a smile on your face, once the game is done.

Join We Happy Few today and get ready for a dark tale set in a 1960s dystopia of cheerful denial and obligatory merriment, 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.

Best experienced with your mouse.

Ghost of a Tale, a gritty fantasy adventure about a little mouse facing big trouble, now in development, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 10% launch discount.

They say that history is written by the victors but sometimes the biggest truths are hidden behind a Ghost of a Tale. In this medieval world of animals, where the Mice have been marginalized by the vindictive Rats, Tilo’s search for his beloved will accidentally throw him in harm’s way. The little mouse minstrel is not much of a fighter, but cunning, guile, and nimbleness are forces to be reckoned with and Tilo wields them as expertly as he does his trusty lute.
Developers SeithCG are equally small in numbers and the community’s input is helping them shape this endearing action/RPG into something truly special. The core stealth, fighting, and conversation mechanics are pretty much in place, but the flow of the story and exploration is still being tampered with by the team.
You can keep track of their progress through their official blog at ghostofatale.com.

Play your lute through the spooky halls of Dwindling Heights Keep as you struggle to escape your own Ghost of a Tale, DRM-free on GOG.com.
The 10% launch discount will last until August 1, 4:59 PM UTC.

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.

Space is too big for only two players.

Battlezone 98 Redux: The Red Odyssey, the bombastic expansion to the celebrated strategy/action hybrid, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com, with GOG Galaxy support for achievements and multiplayer and a 15% launch discount.

The war is not over yet! Rather, it is escalating as the Americans and Russians are still duking it out in the far corners of space, looking for the means to outsmart and outgun each other. But they are no longer the only power players in this struggle as new forces are prepared to make their move…
Similarly to the base game, The Red Odyssey expansion has been lovingly remastered and is the perfect way to continue your violent exploits in this alternative take on the 60’s Space Race. Two new factions join the fray, bringing 30 new units, new maps, 23 additional missions, and fresh multiplayer tactics. Time to go make some new space debris!

Continue the space race for supremacy and get caught in the crossfire of Battlezone 98 Redux: The Red Odyssey, DRM-free on GOG.com. Buying the expansion together with Battlezone 98 Redux will get you a 25% series discount.
