Torchlight FREE for the next 48 hours, 500+ Games 50% off until July 5, Daily Deals up to 85% off!

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, let's begin GOG's amazing humongous 2013 #NoDRM Summer Sale. Most of the games in our DRM-free catalog (that's 500+ titles!) are available half-price until July the 5th. You can also expect special Daily Deals, allowing you to grab bundles of games (or in some cases individual titles) up to 85% off! To add a cherry on top that huge, delicious summer gaming cake, for the next 48 hours we're giving away Torchlight, a fantastic hack-and-slash action-RPG, absolutely free to all GOG.com users! We have a lot of exciting deals in store for you, so remember to check our site frequently.

Normally, this paragraph would serve to further encourage you to go crazy with our extravagant and exciting offers. We'll get to that. But there's something important we'd like to address first. At GOG.com. we talk a lot about the importance of giving gamers the ability to play their games where they want, whenever they want, and how they want. Gamers should be able to play their games on any device they own in any location, no matter the Internet quality. There is only one way to ensure that: No DRM.

In the last few months, there has been a lot of outcry from gamers over DRM and how it is changing our favorite form of entertainment. If it keeps growing, it may well take a large part of the fun out of gaming. As anti-DRM crusaders, we're very glad to see that the issue of restrictive digital rights management has become an item of public debate, and we want to make sure that our #NoDRM stance is clear. None of the games in our sale have DRM, and none of our games ever will.

Once again: More than 500 games 50% off until July 5. Daily Deals bringing the discount even up to 85%. Torchlight distributed as a free gift to all GOG.com users until Thursday, June 20, at 12:59PM GMT. We'll throw exciting offers at you daily, so consider following us on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube just to make sure you're not missing out. That's it! The 2013 #NoDRM Summer Sale is now on. Have fun and remember to support the #NoDRM movement on GOG.com and elsewhere!

dragonbeast: soo...all 50%off discounts stay until july 5?

TurnipSlayerr: See my above post.

Square Enix, Bohemia Interactive, Capcom and Interplay catalogues will all only be on promo for one week.
Thanks for the update. Nothing I want from any of them, so I'll just keep my eye on the other stuff I want :)
Wallet partially extinguished! :D

Bloodygoodgames: I'm guessing that's because it's coming up in another bundle sale later on (Indie Bundle maybe?) and, if not, no biggie -- My backlog is now at 118 games, so It's not like i have time to play it any time soon :)

PaterAlf: Same here. I was tempted to use the glitch and pick up Don't Starve and Expeditions: Conquistador, but then I looked at my backlog (which includes nearly 200 games) and thought it might be unfair to to GOG and the developers to pick up the games that were not supposed to be discounted. I can wait for a real sale.
That's actually my thought on that too. I'm guessing GOG would be the ones losing the money as I'm sure, if the glitch is their fault they'll have to pay the developers full price for the game.

Not fair to GOG, IMO, taking it when it's not really on sale, as they are so incredibly fair to their customers. Would hate to rip them off :)
Damn those daily deals. That means that I'm not allowed to grab any of those 50% off games until July 5th. :P

hansappel: Why would anyone go through the trouble to pirate a game and risk irritating "virtual CD drive" programs, .exe-files infected with virii and other malsware, trouble with cracks and CD key generators, etc when one can just buy DRM games from GoG for almost no charge at all?
Why did this end up low rated? I think a bunch of people must have mis-read it - He's saying he doesn't understand why people pirate when GOGs doing such great deals!

Thank-you GOG!

Get an eye-test down raters!

I think people consider it laughable and/or false information that cracking games is an awkward process and pirated versions are infested with malware. :P
Looks like those Slender: The Arrival guys really don't want me to get their game. For $4.99 I'd think about it. For $9.99 - forget it.
My BOG collection just got LSL: MCL. Daikatana will probably join soon :)

Is it just me who thinks that Capcom catalogue is quite an euphemism?

b... but some of them are...

Because it's a lame attempt at fishing for positive votes, and it added nothing to the discussion.

Keygens certainly are popular malware vectors, but I believe cracks actually have an overall safety track record than ostensibly legit software.

Damn, I was hoping for Wizardry 8 50% off :(

I must have played or owned at least 200 pirated games over the years (I'm in Bangkok, all games are pirated here :) I've never once a) had a game that didn't play and b) had a game with any kind of malware or virus.

Pirates don't infest their stuff with malware. They want you to come back and buy from them again.

And, as far as the US government trying to convince people pirates are connected to 'terrorists'. Bullshit. They're just business people like anyone else. But, you know the US, if they don't want you to do something, they just say "terrorists" and half of America believes them :)
Why I didn't know about this 2 days ago... ^^

I dunno, looking through quite a few 'not quite on message' posts are getting low rated, some guy was just saying that he already owned everything from GOG he wanted so he wasn't as excited as previoius sales - down rated for the guy who's probably got a metric fuck ton GOGs on his shelf
GOGs now attracting fanboy thought police - how cute!
