Celebrate 30 years of gaming history by spending money has worked up another interesting sale scheme you might want to take a look at. The "DRM-Free Time Machine Sale" started this morning and will be offering deep discounts on games from's collection of classic computer titles, one at a time, for a limited time. How limited that time is depends on you, as purchase of the current title extends the time it's available at that price for an additional three seconds. Even if you don't choose to buy, you can have an impact with up-and-down voting which adds or subtracts a second. When time expires on a deal, it is then replaced with a new offer.

This is a much better idea than their prior, "limited number of copies" promotion, which went great until a game came along which nobody wanted and stalled out the progress of the sale for hours. Allowing shoppers to downvote to get the next deal a little faster ought to compel a little participation.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
