You and this update = perfect match!

Reigns, the fantasy simulation where you make card-inal decisions for your kingdom by swiping left or right, recently received a huge free injection of 100+ new cards!

These cards include a brand new character, 3 new deaths, 5 new objectives, and 1 totally fake elephant. That should make for more varied runs but this update also makes reaching the end of the main story slightly more achievable and brings the option to reset your game at any point by holding down “R” for five seconds.

Now, if you want to see how these new cards stack up against the rest, go ahead and shuffle yourself a new playthrough!

Escape your own past and the gaze of a great Dark Eye!

Ready for some more adventuring? The rest of Daedalic’s remarkable catalog is joining our Weekly Sale Vol. X and it’s taking us to some rather peculiar places that may or may not be a figment of our imagination.

They’re rascals, miscreants, and oftentimes at odds with each other. Yet, these Blackguards are just the people for the job when it comes to preventing the world from ending. Turn-based strategy-RPG gameplay and a truly gritty story set in the compelling Dark Eye universe.

You can run from oppressive caretakers and unstable inmates but you cannot escape your own memories. Edna & Harvey know this all too well, but that doesn’t stop them from trying! Especially since it involves exploring an insane asylum filled with bizarre interactions and mind-racking puzzles.

That’s not all, though! There’s plenty more to love here, like: Bounty Train, The Night of the Rabbit, Valhalla Hills, Silence, and several other winners, up to -90%! Don’t forget – there are just a few days left to grab what you want!

Did you miss Monday’s launch of our Weekly Sale? Check it out – it’s all about escaping a colorful junk world and braving the perilous Underground.

The Weekly Sale will last until April 3, 4:00 PM UTC.

Ask me about Thimbleweed Park.

As a point & click pioneer, it’s only fitting that Ron Gilbert gets to be the one to bring them back the way we fondly remember them: as pixel-art, story-heavy affairs, riddled with compelling puzzles and humorous interactions. That was the idea behind Thimbleweed Park and that’s what over 15.600 Kickstarter backers helped him create. As Gilbert himself keeps stressing, this is not an adventure game made exactly the way those classics were made, but one that plays like your memories of these games. There are all manners of modern bells and whistles built within its pixely exterior, and its design has also done away with the unnecessary frustrations of the past while preserving their old-school charm.

We recently spotted the legendary Grumpy Gamer standing outside Thimbleweed Park’s city limits, wearing an “Ask Me About Thimbleweed Park” badge – It was hard to resist the urge. For those who want to know more, we’re also having a Twitch stream where Memoriesin8bit and Flaose will [LOOK AT] the game and [USE] their questions on Ron Gilbert. Tune in tomorrow, Friday the 31st, at 8 PM UTC on Twitch.tv/gogcom.

In terms of design, is Thimbleweed Park more closely related to Maniac Mansion or Monkey Island?

Ron: A little of both. The character design is highly influenced by Maniac Mansion, and so is the room layout. But the puzzle design and dialogue borrow more from Monkey Island.

So why the SCUMM interface? Why not use one of the “smart cursor” interfaces that have come since?

Ron: That decision goes back to our goal of recapturing the charm of Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island, and I think the SCUMM verb interface has a lot to do with it. The other big thing is the pixel art. We all love pixel …read more

A night to remember.

Thimbleweed Park, a delightfully surreal point & click adventure by the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com!

This murder, it really ties the town together, man. A town already haunted by dark secrets and built on sins. Now five eccentric individuals will start poking around, each for their own reasons. Little do they know that they’ve become the unwitting catalysts for a fateful night full of bizarre events, brain-twisting puzzles, and weaponised sarcasm.

For some additional insight, check out our interview with Ron Gilbert, the mind behind Thimbleweed Park and a few other classics you may have heard of.

The Big Apple is rotten to the core. How about a bite?
