Something cool for the magically gifted.

Rogue Wizards, a charming turn-based roguelike where you raid densely populated dungeons full of amazing treasures, is available now for Windows and Mac, DRM-free on GOG.com with GOG Galaxy support for achievements and a 15% launch discount.

You cannot isolate magic. Despite what the aristocracy of Rilfanor believes, it can materialize both in its “pureblood” population and among the less privileged members of society. Sometimes, those magically-tuned individuals might even belong to the fairer sex! The scandal!
But once these silly misconceptions are put aside, it’s time to deal with the real problem: the evil monsters dwelling inside those randomly generated dungeons. Outfit your fighter with the latest in enchanted equipment, gather materials to craft even more powerful items, and prepare to do turn-based battle against scary monsters with unique traits and abilities. You can choose your spells from six distinct schools of magic and wreak havoc as you delve deeper and deeper into the uncharted depths of the ever-changing dungeons.

Indulge in your dungeon-crawling instincts and send your Rogue Wizards to destroy hordes of monsters and hoard piles of loot, DRM-free on GOG.com.
The 15% discount will last until December 11, 10:59 PM UTC.

The triumvirate of strategic gameplay.

Civilization III: Complete, Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, and CivCity: Rome, three of the most celebrated entries in the wildly popular and critically-acclaimed franchise, are now available, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get them individually with a 33% launch discount or grab all three in a bundle for 50% off.

Let’s be honest: our civilization would not be nearly as advanced if our ancient forefathers had the Sid Meier’s Civilization games available to them. It’s not just their incredible 4X depth that keeps you engaged for hours upon hours, it’s how addictive the experience is, compelling you to stay for “just one more turn” so that you don’t go to bed with any part of the map left unexplored or any hostility left unanswered.

Civilization III Complete and especially Civilization IV: The Complete Edition took the franchise to new heights by introducing new mechanics, improving the visuals and hooking players with additional modes and strategic options. They are the perfect challenge for those who want to build their empire, negotiate with other nations, and conquer their place in history through the years.

CivCity: Rome is a city-builder spin-off where you manage some of the greatest cities of the Roman Empire. Not only will you set up their infrastructure and help them grow, but you also have the chance to look inside the buildings and observe your citizens going about their everyday lives!

Discover the amazing strategic depth of the Civilization franchise with Civilization III: Complete, Civilization IV: The Complete Edition, and CivCity: Rome, DRM-free on GOG.com.
The 33/50% discount will last until December 5, 10:59 AM UTC.

The road to redemption.

Blade & Bones, an combat-driven action/RPG about a warrior fighting to reclaim the voice of his people from a vengeful god, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 5% launch discount.

Legends speak of Niro, the god that created the Orins and then cast them down in anger. As punishment for their defiance, he took away their voice, forcing them to communicate with others through four signs that express different emotions. Now the Orins will challenge their god once again, but for that they must gather the seven swords of legend.
Their combat skills will be put to the test again and again: timing and patience are key when alternating between light and heavy attacks or switching between the six different styles. The warriors can also perform dynamic body transformations called Kuros, or call upon the power of the relics they find in their travels. Depending on the time of day or the Kuros they can transform into, the Orins will be able to open up new areas or hidden passages across the open world, claiming secret weapons and items that will aid them in their quest.

Perfect your combat skills, claim the seven lost swords, and learn the secrets of Blade & Bones, DRM-free on GOG.com.
The 5% launch discount will last until December 14, 9:59 PM UTC.

Trim the sails and roam the sea.

Tempest, an open-world action-RPG about plundering the seven seas with your battleship, is now available for Windows and Mac, DRM-free on GOG.com, with GOG Galaxy support for achievements and a 33% launch discount.

It’s easy to romanticize the pirate’s life: quests for legendary (also occasionally cursed) treasure, unrestrained killing and debauchery, unapologetically bad hygiene, the promise of endless adventure. But to indulge into all this, you must first tame the sea, which is nothing if not a cruel, demanding mistress.
Start by getting yourself a worthy vessel. Take good care of it, upgrade it, then roam the ocean, visit dozens of islands, and undertake dangerous quests. In your journeys you will do battle with enemy warships, sink galleons, and even lay siege to impenetrable forts. Stay vigilant, for giant monsters also lurk these waters, waiting to drag you down into Davy Jones’ locker. But take heart, captain! You are armed with more than mere cannonballs: you have flamethrowers, mortars, mystical crystals that grant you the power to bring down meteorites or summon terrible beasts on your enemies. And of course the greatest weapon of all: your salty grit.

Grind your black teeth, grab the steering wheel, and get ready to face the Tempest, DRM-free on GOG.com. For some epic music that will keep you in a sailing mood even when not playing, don’t forget to grab the game’s Soundtrack.
The 33% discount will last until December 11, 10:59 PM UTC.

I keep on falling…

Downwell, a downwards journey through a bottomless well full of pixel-starved creatures and untold treasures, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 50% launch discount.

How low will you go for a handful of shiny red gems? Driven by an overpowering desire to collect them all, our peculiar protagonist just keeps falling down the well in an unstoppable, frenetic descent. At least he’s got his nifty Gunboots on, so he can blast all the nasty well-dwellers to oblivion, collect tons of upgrades, and temporarily resist the unforgiving law of gravity. Surprisingly, he’s the not the only civilized person here and every now and then he’ll find himself in safe areas of the procedurally-generated caverns where he can level up, shop, or just ponder on his life decisions. Could it be that he’s actually drawn to the well’s impenetrable darkness or is he just looking for a way to battle it? Well, regardless, there’s only one way to go from here..

Strap your Gunboots on and let yourself fall Downwell, DRM-free on GOG.com.

Things could have turned out better. Could it be that you were too loud when swapping the idol of Ralak-Sa with a plastic Troll doll? Perhaps they noticed the difference in the hair, though that’s unlikely.

But as you’re making your way through the chamber, wondering about the significance of these up to -85% tags attached to each game, you feel something slithering around your ankles. Oh god, it’s snakes. Why Did it Have to be Snakes?!

You can’t expect to be spared gross encounters of the slithering kind when your primary occupation is Tomb Raider. Thankfully, Lara has her trusty sidearms, incredible acrobatic skills, and inherent bad-assery to help her deal with all the nasty stuff standing in her way.

The foundation for even bigger changes.

No Man’s Sky, the first-person game of limitless space exploration that everyone’s been talking about, has just received a massive free update to version 1.1 called the Foundation Update! If you haven’t checked the game out yet, now is a good time to jump in, taking advantage of the 40% discount.

The game got off to a rocky start but developers Hello Games say that since its release they have been processing all the feedback and this update “is putting in place a foundation for things to come”.

Here are some of the most important improvements it brings:

– Explorers can now decide to play with different rule sets across three game modes: the Normal mode, the Creative mode and the Survival mode.
– You can claim your home planet by finding an uninhabited base and creating your own, fully customized outpost.
– Inside your base you can grow and harvest crops, and research plant types with the new Farming system.
– You can now deploy automated harvesters that keep gathering resources from nodes. Waypoints can be placed to track points of interest and you can also leave sub-space messages for other travelers to find.
– If you can afford them, you might want to purchase interstellar Freighters that you’ll be able to summon from anywhere in the galaxy. You can even use the new recruitment system to outfit your Freighter with an Engineer, a Farmer, and a Weapons or Science specialist that will conduct research for you.
– Big and small improvements in the UI and graphics, including a quick menu to access important items.

To get a good look at all the changes introduced in the Foundation Update head over this way.
Or better yet, fire up No Man’s Sky and check them out yourself!

By Sharkster In preparation of our upcoming TOXIKK Pro League Tournaments, 1.0.5 brings multiple further improvements, fixes and features. Let’s take a look at what we did in detail:

01: IMPROVED CONNECTIVITY

The QuickJoin feature was affected by a bug that caused a “No Server Found” error under certain conditions. This should no longer happen. Also, if loading/connecting took very long, you could get stuck in a connection cycle. This was fixed. Note to admins: the ToxikkServerLauncher tool now starts all dedicated servers WITHOUT SteamSockets, as they are causing connection issues. Make sure you are forwarding game AND query port now, if your server is behind a NAT router. Listen servers (direct match hosting) now have an optional menu item, were you can toggle SteamSockets.

02: INITIAL SPAWNS OF POWER PICK-UPS DELAYED

Something that should’ve been done before, but it simply slipped a couple of times: The spawns of all mega pick-ups is now delayed, to not give those players an unfair advantage that initially spawn close to a power pick-up. Also, many respawn times for items were slightly adjusted.

03: HEALTH AND ARMOR DECAY

Advanced balancing measures: Health above 150 units now decays with a rate of 1 unit per second back to 150. Same goes for armor above 100.

04: VIDEO SETTINGS

Video options were removed from DefaultGame.ini. So next time we do changes to that ini, your video options shouldn’t reset.

05: LEAVING AN ARCH RIVALS MATCH AFFECTS YOUR ELO SCORE

Leaving a competitive Arch Rivals match before it’s over will affect your score as if you’ve lost the match.

06: FIX – NO MORE 3 DUELISTS

There was a bug that could cause to have three active duelists in Arch Rivals game mode under certain conditions. This should no longer happen.

07: ELO SCORE ADJUSTMENTS

The way your Elo score is calculated is adjusted. Also, if you haven’t played any competitive matches …read more
