Ho ho ho! Let’s see what GOG.com has in its sack for all those good little gamers out there for the 2012 holiday season. Why, it’s the Duke! Every year, GOG.com likes to do something special for its shoppers around the holiday. That means, everyone gets a free game and the opportunity to grab other games for a fraction of their usual prices. This year’s sale started December 12, 2012 (12/12/12!) and marks the arrival of the 2012 DRM-Free Holiday Sale and free Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition dispersal!
We’ll start with the Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition promotion, since it doesn’t last as long. It is free through December 14, 2012. All you have to do is make a free GOG.com account, go to the Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition product page and you’ll own a Windows and Mac version of a DRM-free copy of the game. Yes, everyone can welcome the Duke home for the holidays.
Now, that’s only part of GOG.com’s celebration. The other is the 2012 DRM-Free Holiday Sale. This is a really interesting one that Windows and Mac gamers will appreciate. GOG.com says 474 games from its catalog will be reduced until January 3, 2013 and in addition to that, there will be some kind of special deal, bundle or promotion each day. For example, the 12/12/12 deal is a Bullfrog Favorites bundle that gives you a pretty awesome deal. If you just want one, two, three or even seven of the eight selected games, it’s price is cut by 50% to $2.99. If you go for all eight, then each game drops to $1.49 and you pay $11.92 for the lot. Normally, they cost $47.92 all together. So if you ever wanted to enjoy Dungeon Keeper (Windows, Mac), Dungeon Keeper 2 (Windows), Theme Hospital (Windows, Mac), Magic Carpet (Windows, Mac), Populous (Windows, Mac), Populous 2 (Windows), Populous: The Beginning (Windows) or Syndicate (Windows, Mac), you now can for a ridiculously low price.
I’m thinking of grabbing SimCity 2000 Special Edition. I feel like I need a good, old city management simulation. Besides, it’s only $2.99. Take a look. You may find some great game there to surprise yourself or a friend with!
