Get SimCity 2000 SE, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper 1 & 2, and more DRM-free EA classics 60% off!

This weekend nearly 30 classic from the Electronic Arts collection make their way to GOG.com with a solid flat-rate 60% discount. A line-up of timeless games arriving at such speed deserves to be called nothing shorto of a Classic EA Convoy! You'll find memorable stand-alone titles here, as well as all-time favorite series. Games from many genres to suit all tastes and temperaments. Whether you are an adventurous soul, a keen manager, or a daunting pilot, you'll find an excellent match for yourself on our promo page. But before you go there, let's take a quick look at some of the brilliant games we offer you today, shall we?

There was a time that all that a aspiring mayor of a virtual town needed, was a computer plugged in into nothing more than a power socket. Well, that and a copy of SimCity 2000, preferably the Special Edition that allowed you not only to construct and manage your town--that is: metropolis--but also allowed you to become an architect and design your very own buildings using the patented Urban Renewal Kit. Oh, yes! City-building was carefree and full of bliss, back in the day (up until an earthquake or alien invasion--but even that only happened locally). Many have forgotten, but we, here at GOG.com, remember. Today you can experience the urbanistic utopia once again, for only $2.39--a fraction of what you'd be paying for building a birdhouse, let alone a city!

If you prefer a smaller scale in your managerial sim, but maybe even more gameplay intensity, you should pick up Theme Hospital for only $2.39. This medical facility simulation takes serious matters like health care and exotic diseases with a hefty pinch of humor. Treating Hairyitis in patients suffering from prolonged exposure to moonlight might be a tad challenging, but its got to be fun at the same time. After all, not every day you get to order flea-powder and silverware compress as a treatment, right. Only here!

Lots of humor, even if a bit darker in tone, you will also find in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2, Bullfrog's excellent fantasy games pitting iron-clad heroes and heroins against a horde of vile dungeon-dwelling monsters led by a repulsive demon. The twist is: this time around you're the evil boss of the dungeon. Command your minions, design deadly traps, and fend off those damn do-gooders trying to perform their petty quests. You also get to hoard ridiculous heaps of gold and jewels here, and the entry investment is only $2.39 for each of the games.

Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, just as all of the games above, delivers complex and deep strategic gameplay with lots of factors to track at once--probably even more then the others. On top of that, it presents you with the most important task ever undertaken by the humankind: colonization of space! Taking everything that was so involving and enjoyable about the Civilization game, this one takes matters into an otherworldly setting. The version we offer here comes with the elusive Alien Crossfire expansion, all for the low price of--you guessed it--$2.39!

Impressive? Oh, but that's just the tip of the giant mountain of DRM-free EA gems we have lined up for you in our Classic EA Convoy! Be sure to check the whole promo page, not to miss out on any of the excellent titles we offer 60% off until until Tuesday, May 7, at 3:59AM GMT.

Have a nice weekend!

nice promo, btw.. ;p

Good promo.. I guess ? I already own the games that I interested to from the list. Well, nothing for me this week.

But I would like to see more EA games on GOG though. Is it possible for Command and Conquer series ? especially General. But seeing EA still selling the games (in one packages), I think it still a very long way to go. But if EA do that, it would be great.
Is Magic Carpet still fun to play in this day and age? Everyone praises this game, but they could very well be blinded by nostalgia. I would like to see an opinion from someone who has played this game recently.

Also, which is the best Crusader game? Is there any reason to get both, or they're more or less the same thing?

Thanks in advance!

DarthCruciare: I am not here to force my beliefs on others, the way EA is forcing DRM on us.
Therefore shouldn't you buy their games which are drmfree and good? aka letting them know that you want more of those instead of drmridden crappiness?

by not buying you are rewarding draconian laws?

It’s the one Hospital experience you can have where you can call the shots?

I've played it for about twenty hours and have really enjoyed it. Easy to learn, not so easy to master. Plenty of humor. What I would call a great 'tinkering' game for when you just want to have a chill gaming stretch.

Got to give them a pass this year because of the lockout and the fact that their goalie went from a semi- basket case to a full blown one. But they better make the playoffs next year or heads have to roll.

I'm sorry what? I didn't catch that. I was too busy thinking about the Blues being up 2-0 on the defending champs. :D

In a perfect world, you should get both Crusaders as they tell one complete story. They are essentially the same mechanically. I'm partial to the first one, it just had a better feel to me. If you're only going to get one, go with No Remorse.
I bought T Hospital. I am seriously up shits creek when my bill arrives. XD
