So here’s a quick rundown of how to redeem the free Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse copy on GOG:

You have roughly 46 hours from the time of publication to actually claim the game. Note that you’ll need to (at least temporarily) agree with marketing communications from GOG to claim it, and have a logged-in account to boot.

Definitely do it, even if you have no intention of playing it anytime soon! Pirate’s Curse is an interesting deviation from the Shantae formula, as it sees the titular character losing her genie powers in favor of going on a more traditional adventure. Some folks still consider it their favorite in the franchise, and given the aforementioned conceit, it’s a great entry point.

This is your chance to dive into the series!
