Gods Will Be Watching dials back the torture for a launch trailer

Launching a videogame is usually cause for celebration. However, this Gods Will Be Watching launch trailer is bleak enough that you won't want to celebrate anything, not even the game's impending July 24 release. At lea...

This Gods Will Be Watching trailer made me wince

I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that we're not going to feel good about ourselves after playing Deconstructeam's point-and-click thriller Gods Will Be Watching. The game is out July 24 for Windows, Mac, and Linux on S...

Keep your eyes on GOG.com to get some free games photo
Keep your eyes on GOG.com to get some free games
by Alasdair Duncan

GOG.com's summer sale format is something that almost single handily justifies tabbed web browsers. Whilst its range of flash deals have been worth keeping an eye on, this 24-hour Adrenaline Rush promotion will be offering free games over the next 19 hours.

If you're reading this now, you've already missed getting Omerta: City of Gangsters for free but there's still plenty of big discounts happening.

There's Hotline Miami, Carmageddon II, and Lily Looking Through for just $1.99 whilst more recent titles like Kentucky Route Zero and Broken Sword 5 are half price at $12.49. As always, just keep refreshing and checking back every 30 minutes to check what's new.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is free on GOG.com today photo
Magrunner: Dark Pulse is free on GOG.com today
by Jordan Devore

Have a GOG.com account? You should, if for no other reason than to hit up promotions like this. For 24 hours, the digital distributor is offering first-person puzzler Magrunner: Dark Pulse for free. It's a decent enough game that you might as well add it to your library.

This deal is part of the site's summer sale special, which is also running some tempting bundles today -- the Bullfrog lineup for $9.79, the original Thief trilogy for $5.97, and the Wing Commander series for $9.52, to name a few. GOG.com is doing the hourly flash sale thing, too, so check back in. (Or don't! The Steam sale will be here before we know it -- pace yourself.)

After watching this dramatic trailer for GOG.com's newly announced, optional Galaxy online gaming platform, I'm still unsure about how it will work in practice but, on paper, it sounds okay. The new client, releasing later t...

If GOG.com gets into selling early-access games, it won't follow Steam's model

The gap between Steam and GOG.com has further widened now that Valve has embraced the sale of work-in-progress games under its Early Access program while the latter digital distributor has continued to focus on curating finis...

Sir, You Are Being Hunted is out of Early Access with version 1.0

In most cases, I like to pass on alpha and even beta builds of games in favor of waiting for a more polished, more realized "full release" version. That's especially true if I think I'm going to really like the game in quest...

Shelter 2 is a 'spiritual sequel' starring a new species

I liked Shelter as an out-there concept, but as a game, it just couldn't hold my attention. Might and Delight is ditching badgers for its "spiritual sequel," which instead revolves around a lynx mother attempting to raise he...
