Deals so good, you won't want to fall asleep.
You remember back when you used to walk into a store, browse the shelves, pick out a game, and then buy it--all in the actual real world? We don't know about you, but most of us at GOG.com have had our limbs atrophy to small vestigial nubbins since all of our shopping happens online these days. Of course, one thing that sometimes happens in real world stores with real world goods--particularly when they have a good sale--is that they run out of stock. Usually that means that the deal was so good that they couldn't keep up with demand.

Well, in the digital realm, this is usually pretty rare. How do you run out of stock on digital games, short of entropy devouring the universe? Well, we have gotten 101 games that will be on sale on the front page of GOG.com, but the discounts are so high at the moment that we can't just sell an unlimited number of copies of these games: we are only able to sell a few at these discounts--up to 80% off--and once they're gone, they're gone.

So what games will be on sale in our Insomnia promo? Bestselling classics and new games alike. There will also occasionally be some free games in super limited numbers (like, 20 or 30 copies)--if you're fast enough on the trigger finger to pick 'em up, that is. The deal will run from now until we're out of "stock" of games for the sale, and games may show up more than once. So it's time to bathe in a tub of coffee*, dip some espresso**, snort an energy drink***, or do whatever else it takes to stay up so you don't miss out on the best deals on fantastic games on GOG.com since summer.</p>
*This is probably not a good idea
**This is definitely not a good idea
***This is totally safe, though****
****NO IT'S NOT WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU CRAZY PERSON

IAmSinistar: Well, the next Insomnia should be interesting, what with region locked games. Enjoy staring at a black rectangle with "Not Available In Your Area" on it.
I had the exact same thought when I saw this thread bumped. XD
When I saw this popping up I first thought - not now, Gog! This is really inconvenient (and yet oh so thrilling).

Then realized it's not actually fall :(

IAmSinistar: Sleep not, my brethren and sistren. Our lord Insomnia will yet rise from the darkening deeps again...
WHEN!?!?!?! =)

CarrionCrow: WHEN!?!?!?! =)
My guess, when sufficient time has passed since adding the new publishers so that some of their games can be included. And of course there are now games which cannot be part of the sale, since they wouldn't show for some folks. A global sale means global games only. Unless the games get re-added but in censored form...

Isn't there a grand total of 3 games that are being blocked? Unless there are more that I missed reading about, GOG still has more than enough to put on a good Insomnia sale.

As the mournful Keeper Of The Lists, I can only hope the number remains that low.

Yes, it shouldn't stop them from putting on a sale. Just another fly in the ointment.

Yeah, it's not great by any means, but that's the outside world feeling the need to shove their noses into something people use to have fun away from that world.

Idiotic, ridiculous, absurd, but that's what people get to deal with.

The two Commandos games are being blocked in Germany, and there's Hotline Miami 2 in Australia.

Figuring the three would have to be kept off a massive sale.
