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!

gandalf.nho: Nice promo. All the daily deals will be bundles?
Yes. Ish.

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?
The sale will be until 14.59 GMT on Jan 3rd.

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.

yyahoo: Giana Sisters is less than 50% off. $8.99 instead of 7.49. Is this correct?
That's correct, this title's only 40% off.

JMich: Giana Sisters are at -40%, as is Arma: Gold Edition, Arma 2 and Original War. There may be a few more I missed, will have to recheck.
Edit: Add Arma: Cold War Assault to the -40% list.
FTL is also at -25%
Retro City Rampage at -35%(?)
Book of Unwritten Tales at -35%
Looks like you've got everything :)

Retro City Rampage and Book of Unwritten Tales are 33% off though.

Edit: Actually you missed out on our special promos for The Witcher and The Witcher 2!

Witcher 1 is 75% off and Witcher 2 is 60% off.

JMich: I blame server gnomes!

And as for The Witchers, there is a thread about them, and they are at more than 50%, thus I didn't mention them. But you are correct.
Bloody server gnomes! I'll ask somebody to sort those out, cheers.

de_Monteynard: Can a bluetext care to explain why the promo on the first page is saying that I own part of the bundle, even though I have bought all the games I didn't have when the sale started? However, I have to admit that it's nice seeing it say I can complete it for FREE.
Seems like a bug, we'll fix it shortly.

Barefoot_Monkey: Hmm... odd problem here. I completed the checkout form and got a payment notification from my bank... twice. But I'm still sitting in the checkout screen with the spinning "busy" circle and the games aren't in my account. (apparently the call to https://secure.gog.com/checkout/ajax aborted with a 504 gateway timeout).

I'll try again in about half an hour.

edit: It worked this time! I trust you guys to charge me only once ;)
There was indeed an additional charge, but I was able to cancel it, since the transaction was made very recently. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you should get your money back way faster than if it were a regular refund. I apologize for the original issue, though.
