Sakura Season begins on GOG.com with games up to 75% off!

Welcome to Japan! It’s a quite enchanting, slightly bizarre, and totally fascinating place – plus it’s absolutely beautiful during the cherry blossom season! We’ve found a pretty convenient way to get spirited away there and take you with us: through the magic of videogames. Everything in this Kawaii Sale has been touched or inspired by those unique Japanese sensibilities we’ve grown to love and is up to 75% off.

It’s not just the extravagant haircuts, the expressive eyes, or the colorful creatures – there’s something timeless about these games that always makes us feel young at heart.
Grandia II Anniversary Edition is a prime example of an archetypical jRPG whose charms never fade. When Gaming Nexus reviewed the game, they concluded that “this updated re-release is a testament to how much fun a well-crafted turn-based role-playing game can be.”

Less epic, but definitely not less memorable, Hatoful Boyfriend made IGN admit that “it has a strange premise and though it embraces that weirdness fully, it is able to surpass the label of silly dating sim by presenting interesting themes and characters through strong writing”.

Are you a fan of narrative-driven, turn-based fantasy? Then you’ll love The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky! RPGFan described it as “a slow-paced but charismatic RPG with an incredibly well-crafted world and characters”.

As always, there’s more – including up to 75% off Corpse Party, Way of the Samurai 4, and Xanadu Next. Plus, stay tuned for new games and deals this Friday!

The Kawaii Sale will last until February 27, 5PM UTC.

The recently introduced Nilfgaard faction received the most tweaks.

A new update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC and Xbox One!

The main focus of this this update is to improve balance, solve some of the major issues that were affecting gameplay, and improve how Nilfgaard works – especially strategies focusing on revealing cards. A lot of Nilfgaard gold cards have also received strength improvements (details below).

Another big change is for the Clan Tuirseach Axeman card – its ability now only works with units damaged on the opponent’s side.

The full list of changes, sorted by faction, is available here.

The game is also 15% off.

VA-11 HALL-A, the heavily inebriated simulation of running a futuristic bar, just served out a round of FREE shots in the form of a nice content update! Plus, the game is now 15% off until February 19.
