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

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

tburger: HAHA great idea! How often will new games pop up? Once an hour? Once the previous game will be sold out?

Shame I don't have my CC on me :-(
Once the game's "sold out" then the next one comes up :)

nandesz00: What if a game wont be sold out?
Then forever and ever after you will have it hanging above the website ;)

Vitek: It could be even more devious if there wasn't counter.
Hey now, don't give us ideas we won't ever implement :P

BoxOfSnoo: Nice, Twitter updates when the next sale happens.
Not every single time, though. I've got sleep sometime, man. :P

malkavianer: **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.
While we can't run out of stock in the traditional sense, there are limits to how much a partner may be willing to discount a game as, understandably, they don't wish to devalue their game. However by offering only limited numbers of copies we are able to offer higher discounts than we would be able to otherwise. So the limitation is not completely arbitrary! :)

Senteria: How is the promo for you guys? =D
Support has sworn out a blood feud against the marketing team for proposing this promo. They will not rest until our bones are cracked and the marrow spilled out for the worms to feast upon.

So about normal. ;)

siddham: I was able to get to paypal and make a payment for a game and paypal sent the cash....but no sign of a confirmation from GOG or the game on my account.....?

Hope GOG will honor the payment!
If you have a receipt, you will get a game. Contact Support and they will make it right.

ULTIMATEMALE420: I payed via PAYPAL. I have paypal reciept but not the gog.com recipt.

The reciept does not state the game name, just some weired bunch of letters. (Probably sum kinda code)

That's all you need. Proof of payment and a transaction ID for us to match on our end. Send that along and they'll get you a game--eventually. ;)

KoolZoid: Moving Thunderscape along, here's a code for it:

Enjoy! I know I am!

billybgame: I've never used a code from someone before, but being it had only been a minute, and I just got home and saw this sale going on, figured I'd give it a shot......don't see how you enter the code......where do you do this?

Trilarion: It's still going. Doesn't GOG fear that by now several people will be in serious health problems because of more than 48 hrs being awake? After all prolonged insomnia shouldn't be such a healthy thing. :)
There's no getting off Mr. GOG's wild ride :P

(Seriously, folks, get some sleep.)
