GOG WinterSale 2018 is here - 100 game giveaway

Postby Qbix » 2018-12-13 @ 12:29

The GOG.com WinterSale is here!
This year, we (DOSBox Crew) have been asked to submit some of our favorite DOS (based origin) games and are part of the sale. The list might change over time a little bit when other games go on sale.

I am busy setting up something fun for on the DOSBox site together with GOG.com as we are this year a bit more involved, I will update this post when it is ready.

For now, grab your free copy of Full Throttle Remastered

We have a give-away for 5 dosbox crew collections. Please enter before the 26th.

Another free game: SOMA (until December 30)

And another giveaway over at http://www.dosbox.com ! 100 copies, looking at the number of participants of the last time, you should have a fair chance to win something!


This posts includes my affiliate id, similar to the links on http://www.dosbox.com; The partnership with GOG.com is one of the main reasons that this forum and the dosbox website are still without intrusive advertisements.

Good choice! I never saw a point in buying it since I have the original and requiring OpenGL 3 for Full Throttle is ridiculous.

Thanks for that! I've been waiting for a sale for that ever since it was released, pretty sure it never got one and now it's suddenly free. Can't say I have a problem with that though!

Going to do the same as I did with the other LucasArts adventure remasters and extract the original game files from them so I can play them with ScummVM. Too bad you can't do that with Grim Fandango Remastered.

Thanks for the heads up on Full Throttle - love that game. Of course I've only played the original. Grabbed.

I actually opened a DJ set with this cover of its theme song a while ago. :P

Thanks to the sale I now own DRM-free copies of Bit.trip: Runner and Escape Goat 1 & 2, which means I can still play them after Steam drops support for 1-year-old versions of OS/X on January 1st. I don't really want to get into re-buying games because of this, but these were a buck each & gave me extra bonus content (OSTs, etc.) and even a native Linux port of Bit Trip that Steam didn't offer.

After buying those, GOG threw me Fantasy Generals (which I've never played) as a completely unexpected freebie. Win!

(And you better believe I used that affiliate link.)
