GOG Holds Game Sale For Its 6th Birthday

By   /   Sep 9, 2014

In case you’re looking for a different kind of sale today, GOG.com is celebrating six years of existence by putting up a lot of discounts. It will fashion its promotions year by year, according to which games were in its catalog at the time.

In the first day of sales, you’ll be able to pick up a dozen or so titles, mostly priced between $1.99 and $2.99. Since GOG.com uses a single price currency model, this is the same for North Americans and Europeans alike.

For the first day, the catalog looks at the humbler beginnings of the digital storefront. You can choose between such games as Beyond Good and Evil, Duke Nukem 3D or Unreal Tournament 2004.

Some other titles you may want to look out for are Capitalism 2, if you’re looking for management challenges, but also Rainbow Six, a classic in tactical first-person shooters.

If you’d like to see some newer games, you’ll likely have to wait a few days. GOG stands for Good Old Games and started out as a way for gamers to get classics of a defunct era running on their modern hardware, since that’s not always evident.

Moreover, the company has always been a fervent supporter of DRM-free copies, meaning they’re not tied to their service or any other. GOG.com is even preparing its own network system, called GOG Galaxy, which rivals Steam, but without the same things that force people to choose a platform.

The GOG promo runs until September 16, ending at 9:59AM GMT.

You can also get game deals at the current Humble Store sale.
