Summer approaches (in the northern hemisphere at least), so here’s GOG’s DRM-free summer sale for 2014 now. As usual, they’re selling almost everything with a 50% discount, including a few daily deals which can go up to 90% off.
As always, our intro on GOG and what makes DRM-free games special.
GOG (previously known as Good Old Games) sells DRM-free games, which means that these games are really yours and there are no limits to how or where you play them. And, usually, you don’t need a third-party tool to run them. DRM-free games are more flexible and give you more freedom. No need for serials, installation activation, online verification or other enforced restrictions. Of course, copyright rules still apply, and it is assumed that you don’t pirate the games, of course.
Next follows SpaceSector’s GOG list. What GOG has to offer on the realm of space-based, science-fiction themed and great strategy gaming.
The must-buy ones are the first four :) Unfortunately, we don’t have reviews for all. So, at least check GOG’s rating before you buy. Warning: Some of these titles are quite retro. Enjoy!
