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

I guess it depends on how long it will take for people to buy 101 games in this promo.
**This is definitely not a good idea

Sorry guys but this idea is totally absurd. You sell digital games. They can`t out of stock. And you are not such idiots like Amazon. You don`t need this kind of marketing.

You sell dreams. Dreams from the past. From times, where we all are young, happy and free. The time where our games are free. You give us the possibility to dream old dreams again. Doesn’t matter what OS or what PC-Generation we are running. And this is priceless.

So please don`t waste your time with this kind of marketing. Find new old games and give also in the future the possibility to dream to us. To all these men and woman who wants to be child again. Stay our fairy from the past. That’s enough. And you do fantastic job in this.

Greetings and big thanks from Germany.
Paople fighting over games, that can be... interesting :D
Intresting, but too dab im a very sleepy person :P.
But i hope Tzar, Dont Starve and Kyrandia series goes on sale. :D
Nice promo! Sleep can come another day. I may be broke, but I have to at least see what comes up. ;)
Is this gonna be like that Dork Vince with his infomercials who keeps telling people, "Only for the next twenty minutes because we can't do this all day!"

I don't mind the slant but if I miss "limited copies" of a game I really want to some ninja/scalper who is going to buy them all and then go into classified to trade them for full priced games.....THEN I'LL BE PISSED.

Actually steam run out of Keys for one of GTA games in the past and due to how system was made they couldn't sell anymore copies for a short while.

Also this promo is gog team trying to be creative with promo and get more people interested with gog through it.
This is a fun idea. I love that it's all starting out with a big hitter like System Shock 2. I have grave concerns about the immediate future of my wallet...

Sometimes the fact that you can't buy multiple copies all at once is a blessing :)
