Dec. 23rd 2021 – As we are experiencing the shortest days of the year, fight the winter melancholy with a bit of heartwarming nostalgia… And enjoy an early present!
This year, we have been working with The Video Game History Foundation on the ongoing Throwback Thursday series, asking people from both our teams to recommend some of their favorite classic games every week. But this edition is special, not only are we suggesting a game, it even comes as the second out of GOG’s four time-limited Winter Sale giveaways and is accompanied by classic releases, a special Support Pack, and more!
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, will be waiting for you as a gift until the 25th at 2 pm UTC. The 1995 sci-fi classic, co-authored by Harlan Ellison, writer of the novel by the same name, is famous for its gripping immersive mood, dark psychological writing and appealing characters. But as our dear colleague Falran eloquently puts it: “It will make you think, it will make you wonder, it will make you cry. A great piece of art”.
To keep a merry mood, buy games and do a good deed, thanks to our time-limited The Video Game History Foundation Support Pack. Including two great classics, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate and Darklands, for $5.99, all proceeds go to support The Video Game History Foundation. This non-profit organization has made its mission to bring video game history back to life. Come learn more about them, in an interview with their founder, conducted for this heartwarming occasion.
Forget all about the winter chill and travel from wherever you are wintering, directly into the past, with two releases from Forthright Entertainment and to comebacks from Apogee Entertainment Inc, finally running on modern computers. 1986’s Shard of Spring and its sequel, 1988’s Demon’s Winter, are there to satisfy your longing for classic RPGs, while 1991’s Crystal Caves and 1992’s Secret Agent will please every platformer fan.
And because there’s rarely such a thing as too many joyful presents, thanks to the foundation’s incredible archive, we are adding goodies that they dug out especially for this occasion, such as concept arts and renders, to many of the classic titles on GOG. Including: Anachronox, Daikatana, Gangsters – Organized Crime, Nox, Omikron – The Nomad Soul,
