It’s been a long game-summer. We’ve met loads of new games and formed new game-friendships that’ll surely last forever–I’ll call every weekend–but now it’s time to settle down for a long game-autumn, foraging for game-nuts to stash. Rather than be down about this, GOG and the Humble Store are seeing summer off with big sales. GOG are celebrating their sixth birthday, while Humble just want to party. Cram their game-berries into your cheeks and bury them to play over game-winter.
Humble are opening their sale with hearty daily discounts including Euro Truck Simulator 2 for £3.49, The Swapper for £1.99, The Wolf Among Us for £7.99, Gone Home for £4.99, Kerbal Space Program for £11.99, and The Bridge for £0.69. This being Humble, games come as DRM-free versions, Steam keys, or both of those (check before you buy, obvs).
You can also nab Warlock: Master of the Arcane for free. New discounts will come each day, and the odd freebie or two.
GOG, meanwhile, are celebrating their birthday by reliving the happiest releases of its DRM-free life, one year each day. The first day brought discounts from when they were very much still Good Old Games, including Heroes of Might & Magic 3 Complete for £1.89, Beyond Good & Evil for £1.89, Unreal for £1.59, Unreal Tournament 2004 for £1.59, Duke Nukem 3D for £1.19, Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon for £1.89, and Simon the Sorcerer for £0.89.
Those’ll only be up for another three hours though, before the next lot come in. Er, sorry about that. Chop chop. GOG tease that they’ll have deals on Deus Ex, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, Hotline Miami, Banished, The Witcher series, and more over the week. Those are good video games.
As both disclosure and a reminder, hey, the Humble RPS Bundle (which we don’t see a penny of, and nor do Humble if you want) is still on for another few days.
