The (adventure) games on sale thread

AFAIK you get a DRM free version in their store: I bought Moebius from them and got a DRM free version. So I assume that’s valid for their other games too.

I’ve never seen DRM in their store, in fact this is from the summer sale blog entry from last year:

The Phoenix Online Store is always DRM-free, and Steam keys are available for all our games.

The game is for sale (-50%) until 2019-07-09:

The developer is active on GOG which is great! I hope they will eventually add the original game as bonus.

Last day of June is now free until July 4 on Epic Games Store: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/last-day-of-june/home

Vampyr is on sale again, as well as other “baguette” (French) games.

https://www.gog.com/newsletter/20190708_nl_baguette_days_en/

Oddly enough the sale includes Die Siedler III, presumably because French Ubisoft now owns Blue Byte and publishes the Settlers games. It makes me wonder how many other of the games are “French” just because of Ubisoft. :smiley:

I still haven’t gotten around to playing Syberia 3 unfortunately, and the price is now significantly lower.

Ankh (Anniversary Edition) was released on GOG (-75%)! (Windows only)

Deck 13 also released some other games on GOG which are on sale.

@seguso Whispers of a Machine (Blue Edition) is now on sale. I get -27% (maybe because I own Kathy Rain? Otherwise it’s -15%).

Slightly off topic, but the new Humble Builder Bundle might be of some interest to people who like adventures. Bridge Constructor was a decent enough entry in the genre, and Bridge Constructor Portal looks like a fun twist. Tricky Towers and Concrete Jungle look promising as well.

Besides that there’s Seum, some kind of Quake 3-style platformer.

Can you recommend it?

I haven’t played it. :slight_smile: Only just downloaded it.

And the filename is suspiciously called beta_windows.zip :thinking:

i admit if it weren’t for the verb interface I would not have considered it, given the setting is not that attractive. But let’s give it a chance :slight_smile:

Dont worry its normal for the name :When you make an update of your game on itch.io you can’t change the namefile, that’s why it’s called beta :slight_smile: Cheers ! Ghetto team

Huh, that’s annoying. I absolutely love how on GOG I can grab any version.

However, double checking it’s unclear to me how to do it these days without Galaxy…? I distinctly seem to recall being able to download multiple versions through the web GUI.

On Steam it seems to be possible with some legwork.

Of course if you want something you should store the GOG installer yourself, but still… :-/

That’s what I always do!
On 8934 3.5” disks no less…

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is on sale for less than € 3 on GOG.

https://www.gog.com/game/the_vanishing_of_ethan_carter

On the one hand you just just have to see this game. It’s absolutely stunning and gorgeous, if a little static. On the other hand I kind of lost interest after solving a few puzzles, mainly due to the autosave feature. Iirc it only saves doing the whole puzzle or something along those lines which makes it very annoying to have to quit. (Something I very much appreciate about TWP; save & quit, done.) Also there’s a lot of walking, even if it’s through (mostly) gorgeous environs. I guess that’s what people call a walking simulator.

So I’m not entirely sure I’d recommend it, but on the flipside I did upgrade to the special edition for the artbook & music a while back. Make of that what you will. :wink:

Also there’s this weird thing where you have to get a Redux edition code from the game on GOG as opposed to it just being made available, unless that changed.

Thank you for mentioning this. I’ve had my eye on this one for a while.
