The GOG Winter Sale is Live! Deals & Freebie

We’re officially in the holiday season, gaming-wise, with the first of quite a few Winter sales going live on GOG. Aside from what is clearly a juicy amount of price reductions on a boatload of games, we’ve also got a game that can be claimed for a limited time. Let’s see!


Ghost of a Tale – Claim Now

Ghost of a Tale is a fantasy action-RPG developed by primarily by one person: Lionel Gallat, a DreamWorks and Universal Pictures veteran. The game was funded through Indiegogo and raised 48,700 euros, releasing on the 25th of July, 2016.

You play as Tilo, a minstrel mouse in a medieval world inhabited purely by animals. The game design has you focusing on exploration and immersion, featuring stealth elements (disguises!), quests and fancy conversations with both allies and enemies alike.

Ghost of a Tale is free to claim through the GOG shop for another 43-ish hours since this article’s release. That means there’s a whole two days to get it! Do note that by claiming this gift, you’ll activate e-mail marketing from GOG, as pictured below.


The Deals

There’s 95 pages of discounted games & DLCs, or roughly four and a half thousand things that are a bargain. Of those, about 3000 are full-fledged games, so if you’re feeling adventurous, you can go ahead and parse through the entire catalog, but we’ve singled out a couple titles we feel are definitely worth picking up.

As always, we’ll have links to the games as well as their price and discount at the bottom of the article for your convenience.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition

Yep, it’s the third Witcher again. We normally wouldn’t nominate a game twice for this sort of “deals” article, especially on the same storefront, but with its free next-gen update coming literally tomorrow, now is the best time to get into the game, or replay through it if you’ve lost your CD or account that was tied to your previous purchase.

XCOM 2

In an effort to avoid spoilers for those who only played XCOM: Enemy Unknown (which is a reboot of the series, so there’s even more lore behind it), XCOM 2 takes place twenty years after its predecessor. Released in 2016, the game launched with much-appreciated features such as procedural map generation and mod support, which earned all the critical acclaim it received, being nominated for multiple end-of-year awards. If you’re looking for a turn-based tactics video game, something that doesn’t have the pacing of, say, Starcraft, when XCOM 2 is currently on sale for a ridiculously good price.

Really, it’s just like the Sims, but with guns. Please do not take this comment seriously.
