Dungeon Keeper 1&2, Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet, 3 Populous games, and Syndicate 75% off!

Hey kids! Do you know what time it is? (No, please twell us uncle G-Doc!) It's time to start the holiday sales on GOG.com! (Yaaaay!!!). Yes, that's right. This time of year GOG.com rolls out the big promo guns. This time we begin with a great bundle of Bullfrog Favorites, that you can get with an amazing 75% discount! Let's take a quick look at the content of the first GOG.com holiday promo package, shall we?

You can learn how good it feels to be bad in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2. You can cure such diseases as transparency and broken wind in Theme Hospital. You can glide the Arabian skies on your Magic Carpet. You can become a god-like being and lead your followers to glory in Populous, Populous 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods, and Populous: The Beginning. Finally you will dominate the future as the head of your Syndicate. Normally, to do all that you'd have to pay nearly $50. But for the next 24 hours that whole bundle of games can be yours for only $11.92!

That's not all, of course. You just saved over $35. There must be something cool you can do with it, right? As you browse through our catalog, you will notice that almost all of the games we offer have been discounted by 50% for the holiday season. That's no mistake! We really took our sharpest scissors to those prices, so you can enjoy literally hundreds of excellent games for half the regular price.

Enjoy our offers, grab the Bullfrog Favorites bundle for only $11.92, and fill your home with holiday gaming cheer! Happy holidays!
Daily deals until January 3rd?

Hm. If only there were means to transfer money as permanent account bonus. My wallet will likely be empty in 2 weeks, regardless of whether I spend anything on GOG or not.

dirtyharry50: I'm a little slow but will the sale still be on all day on Jan 3rd then? This matters a lot for me who gets his social security monthly deposit on that morning. If so, I can wishlist stuff and get it the last day during all this. That would be sweetness.

Meantime, I am very tempted to add the Populous games and Magic Carpet to my collection for only six bucks where I own the other games in the promo. Thanks a lot GOG for giving us credit for previous purchases in bundle deals like that.

Was the free game supposed to be today? Did I miss it somehow?

TurnipSlayerr: The sale will be until 14.59 GMT on Jan 3rd.
So, until them I should just buy the daily promos, right? And buy whatever remains of my wishlist at 14:53 GMT... Not sure if this was what you expected.

Gazoinks: Btw, was Dungeon Keeper 2's Windows 7 compatibility ever fixed?
As I just bought dungeon keeper 2 today I can tell you; It works fine on my computer which is Windows 7, although I downloaded an unofficial 1.8 patch as well. If you want to get it I wouldn't worry too much now about the top rated comments as after I patched the game I have had no problems. I'm not even sure I would have had problems before but I didn't play until after I patched the game
Hm, I don't have only Populos 1 and 2 from Bullforg promo and I don't need those. Thanks for not tempting me too much, GOG.
Bullfrog promo is awesome. Too bad it's not for me, but congratulations to all strategy fans!
I had none of the game in this promo. That is no longer true. :)

I asked that myself, too. Thanks for clarification!

Bloodygoodgames: So am I correct in assuming everything that's on sale today (except the Bullfrog game bundle) will stay on sale until early January at the same prices?
Not everything will be on sale for the entire period.

Square Enix games will only be on sale for one week.
Bohemia Interactive games and Retro City Rampage only for 2 weeks.

We will have announcements 48 hours before the discounts on these titles stop to make sure everyone knows.

zardokian: that feel when I bought dungeon keeper 2 for 6.00 this morning, and then I notice it just went on sale for 3.00
Why did you buy anything when we were told yesterday that the Christmas sales are starting today at 3PM GMT?
avatar
dirtyharry50: On a bright note, I have my fully modded BG1 tucked away on my USB drive that only needs the widescreen mod to complete it (I didn't have a widescreen when I modded and played it last) and I can play that very nicely in XP on a virtual machine on my Mac. :D
Why on earth are people still using virtual machines when Wine(skin) runs better, doesn't need to boot up and doesn't need a Windows license? I even have a Wineskin wrapper for Infinty Engine games up over at the Porting Team. Once you've tried Winesin you won't want to go back :)

Thanks for giving us a heads up TurnipSlayerr. I may pick up a Square Enix game (or 2) before it goes off sale.

haydenaurion: Yeah, i'm a bit baffled that Hotline Miami is not on sale considering it was recently on sale at Steam if i'm not mistaken.
Same here. It was $5 on Steam and $5 twice on Amazon so far, but they only sell Steam codes.

I was hoping for at least 33% off here.

Thanks for the warning. Considering how many Square Enix games are on my wishlist, hopefully they'll have a daily sale.

Elbart: 9:59am

Gazoinks: I think EST is GMT-3, so it should be 11:59.

Elbart: That would be the middle of the Atlantic. ;)
Oh, that works. Me happy now! :D
