The highly rated adventure game from the creators of Myst is available free for a limited time
Popular game store GOG, known for its commitment to a DRM-free experience, has just launched its annual summer sale, and is giving away the 2016 adventure game Obduction free for a limited time. Just head over to the GOG home page and scroll down until you see a banner advertising the giveaway. The only requirement is that you have an active GOG account. There are no other requirements or steps; the game showed up in our GOG library within a minute of redeeming the offer. Obduction is normally priced at $29.99.
From Cyan, the indie studio that brought you Myst, comes a new sci-fi adventure. As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. You’ve been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with pieces of Earth from unexpected times and places. The strange worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets only as you explore, discover, coax, and consider their clues. As you bask in the otherworldly beauty and explore the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences. This is your story now. Make it home.
While you’re at the GOG website, be sure to check out the other titles on sale. The GOG Summer Sale advertises more than 2,000 games discounted by up to 90 percent. Some notable titles we spotted are BioShock Infinite: Complete Edition (75 percent off), The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition (70 percent off), and the “Scary Family” bundle containing all three Mafia games for $15. If the store follows the precedent of previous sales, it is likely that additional games will be made free soon.
All GOG games are DRM-free and can be downloaded as complete offline installers or via the store’s GOG Galaxy client. If you see any particularly good deals on quality games, let us know in the comments!
