Enough of this ‘E3’ and its video games tomorrow; what about video games today? Reader, I have good news: not only are a number of video games out and playable right now (at least one hundred, I’m told) a great one is being given away free for the next two days. GOG are continuing their summer sale celebrations with free copies of Ziggurat, 2014’s wizardly roguelikelike first-person shooter.
“It’s the closest thing to a first-person Binding of Isaac I’ve ever played,” our dearly-departed Adam (RPS in peace) said in his Ziggurat review. High praise indeed!
Swing on by GOG’s front page and click the “get for free” button on the Ziggurat banner near the top, and you’ll get a DRM-free copy for keepsies on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It usually costs £10.69 (nice). This giveaway is only available for a short while, ending at 2pm (UK time) on Wednesday the 13th. Nab it now, yeah?
It is a good’un, as Adam said:
“Its foundation is an attractively designed shooter, similar in style to a randomised Serious Sam or a first-person Smash TV with linked arenas, but it’s a game that becomes greater – in almost every sense of that word – as you play it. Even if you fail, the game over screen will almost certainly be followed by a couple of unlocks so you don’t feel too bad.”
Last week, GOG were giving away Xenonauts. Not any longer, of course.
We’ve curated a list of sale recommendations for GOG too. And by “we” I mean “mostly me, with some token input from that rabble.” GOG have put together their own list of cyberpunk sale games too, tying into the fancy new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077.
