The Adventures of Shuggy, VVVVVV, Gateways, Time, Gentlemen Please! + Ben There, Dan That!, and Escape Goat for as little as $0.99 each!

GOG.com 5th birthday celebration continues, and today we've got something super lined up for you. A special bundle release of exceptional indie games hit GOG.com shelves and--guess what--they're on promo! You can get each of them 60-80% off, with each title you add to your cart adding 5% to the final discount. That means all the releases in the Super 5 Promo can be yours for as little as $5 total! (Well, $4.95, to be exact.) The special offer lasts for the first week, that is until Tuesday, October 1, at 9:59AM GMT. After that, the games will be priced at--you guessed it--$5 each. Enough talk, let's get down to business and get a closer look at the Super 5 Promo releases!

The Adventures of Shuggy trailer video

In the puzzle-platformer genre The Adventures of Shuggy stands out with the multitude of cleverly designed stages and diverse mechanics involving gravity shifting and time manipulations. Don't let the cute artwork fool you, and get ready for some challenging platforming and brain-twisting!

VVVVVV trailer video

Talking 'bout challenging platforming, Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV is difficult enough to be considered a "punishment game", but it's also so addicting, that you'll have trouble putting it down. Brilliant gravity-shifting gameplay, excellent level design, and originally presented story more than just makes up for the game's simplistic graphics. Take it for a spin! (Windows + Mac!)

Gateways trailer video

Bending the space-time continuum on the micro-scale is the theme of Gateways, a retrotastic puzzle-platformer from the devs of The Adventures of Shuggy. Master the gateway guns to travel across a room instantly, change size, walk on walls and even travel in time. (Windows + Mac!)

Escape Goat trailer video

Escape Goat is a puzzle platforming game where you take on the role of a goat who was imprisoned for witchcraft. Take heart, for a friendly magic mouse accompanies you, and he can help in the most unexpected ways. Together you must solve 50 rooms of the treacherous Prison of Agnus in order to escape. Level editor included! (Windows + Mac!)

Time, Gentlemen Please! + Ben There, Dan That!

Ben There, Dan That! and its sequel Time Gentlemen, Please! are a couple of rip-roaring point-and-click adventure games. With tongue firmly in cheek, sit back, relax, and put your mind to work solving puzzles, and reading some very funny dialogue. It's like a book, only good!

There you have it, 5 excellent new indie additions to GOG.com catalog, for a little under $5 if you get them all until Tuesday, October 1, at 9:59AM GMT. That's our Super 5 Promo, a part of GOG.com 5th birthday celebration!

Thanks to everyone for their comments, I wasn´t sure if I wanted all of them but I think I´ll get them.

I´ve only played Escape Goat and it´s a cool game. It can be beaten in a day or two easily, but it´s totally worth. The graphics, the music, the gameplay and the level design is good, and you have a level editor too if you want. And yeah, it saves per room.

Haven´t played the rest. I know VVVVVV (which I haven´t even tested) and Shuggy (which I played the demo on Xbox but I didn´t like it that much), but haven´t even heard about the rest. I love platforming and puzzles, so I think I´ll end up liking at all.

Thanks to GOG too for the sale!!

Thanks for this info, this is the one I'm most interested. Glad to see I can finish it in a reasonable amount of time, and that it autosaves. With my backlog these are valuable aspects for a game. Looking forward to playing it even more now. Cheers!

You are welcome! You may get stuck in a room or two for longer, but each room usually takes between 1-5 minutes, some more time in the harder ones. It´s the perfect game for one-two days, and everytime I´ve shown it to somebody else, they have liked it and they have completed or nearly completed it. Specially recommended if you like platformers and puzzles (more puzzle heavy than platforming though).
Very nice, GOG. I think I'll get them all. While I think those adventure games look incredibly crude, for one whole extra cent I suppose it is worth checking out, seeing how it's supposed to be pretty decent.

Played and beaten VVVVVV before, but it's worth checking out again, especially for some of the user-created levels.

I haven't played any of the others, so there's lots of puzzle-platforming to look forward to. I really like the look of Shuggy and Gateways. Escape Goat doesn't look half-bad either. ;)

ow comon guys... again more indie games? I'm always suprised when real 'old good games' are released cause that happens not that often...not frequently enough, at least in my opinion xD, but anyway rare pleasure is greater pleasure and my wallet thanks me^^

I'm sorry, but I find this to be a very odd comment coming from a guy who's been here only a mere three months.

aymerict: For those who like VVVVVV, there is this new flash game from the same creator:

I've played it yesterday and it really blew my mind.
Ugh! Don't remind me. That thing just made my head hurt.

Escape Goat is a wonderful game that you should buy if you don't already own it, and VVVVVV is also good, while I feel that Time Gentlemen and Ben There are greatly over-rated. I don't know about the remaining games, because I don't own them. Yes! Even though they've been in bundles! Turns out, not every gamer on the internet buys every bundle; who knew?

I will now proceed to check them out; I do love puzzle platformers.

As a side-note, despite EnigmmaticT's comment that new games could be at any price point, indie games have always been at equal or higher price points then the old games, so this new-found willingness to go lower is interesting, and might pave the way to other indie games that people want, but can't be sold for $6--someone mentioned Chulhu Saves the World earlier in this thread, for example.

Gog just released two pretty good old games for free in the last week alone.

Yes, that feeling when you lose your 3 lives and have to start again the previous level: NOOOOOOO!!! :)
But again, this game really impressed me.
Awesome amazing super duper cool! Thanks GOG, and happy fifth birthday once again!
Guess I am one of the few who did not already have these ones. Thankyou gog for (finally) releasing them here, and at a fantastic price. Seriously, under a buck each, can't o wrong! MORE OF THIS PLEASE! :D

rtcvb32: Let's not forget people that if you're willing to pay $20 to go to a 2 hour movie at a theater.
Kinda surprised people still go to the movies TBH.
Hmm, can someone who's bought the whole thing help me out?

Found anybody? If not, I can help.

Novotnus: Found anybody? If not, I can help.
I had one offer, but it fell through due to my own stupidity. XD

So yeah, that'd be appreciated. I have the other 4 games, just elsewhere.

EDIT: Thanks Novotnus!

I haven't heard of any of these, but at this price it's a chance I'm willing to take.

keeveek: Another wave of indie games, yay!
Sacrastic whining with a girly anime face is a great way to get yourself downrepped. Good job!
