GOG is at it again.
They're having a "timed" summer sale.
Games appear for a couple of hours then vanish to be replaced by something else and they are up to 90% off!
Right now, 2:30 EDT, Dark Eye, Chains of Satinav is going for 90% off $19.99 with 2 hours left to get it.
The Raven, with 2 hours to go, is 75% off $24.99.
You figure those discounts out. grin

Sanitarium and The Cat Lady are coming up "soon".

We are doomed. My wallet is already cringing. grin

Gil.

Hey, Marian, I'm just curious.
I find it hard to believe that a long-time gamer like you has never played Sanitarium.
Are you just looking for a digital download to keep on your shelf that has probably been tweaked a bit?

Old as it is, this is a great, very weird game and definitely worth getting if anyone is on the fence about it.

Gil.

I bought and played the game when it first came out. Now I think it would be nice to have a digital download as well, and particularly when some folks here about seven or eight years ago started reporting that the CD of their game had literally exploded (no, I am not making this up) in significantly faster CD-ROM drives than those available at the time of the game's release. Strange, but true.

I remember when I first played the game after having purchased it in a retail store; I was amazed by the diversity of the environments, wondering what was going to happen next and where the game was going to take me. Very atmospheric game, and very weird and creepy. I am looking forward to a replay. smile

Yep, their computers survived, but players' nerves were shot. laugh Not fun taking all of the shattered pieces of CD out of their drives, either.

Just picked up Sanitarium - thanks a bunch for posting about this, Gil. smile

Jack Keane 2 is up now, 85% off $29.99. (5:30 EDT)
Other discounted games up right now are Amnesia, a Machine for Pigs and Memoria.

One hour left to get Tales of Monkey Island at 90% off $34.99.

Sherlock Holmes: The Case of the Silver Earring is coming soon.

I wonder if any of these will repeat?
With 700 games to go through, maybe not.

I'm waiting for one particular game that I missed on the last sale.
If it doesn't come fairly soon, I can see I'm going to be GOGgle-eyed, so to speak. grin

Gil.

I just bought Moebius which I didn't want to pay full price for when it was released due due mixed reviews, but I will take a chance on it being fifteen dollars smile

I'm getting to like digital downloads better than physical copies as long as they're on my GOG shelf all neatly rowed up.
They don't gather dust and I can be sure they'll work ad infinitum on Win 7 without typing in codes.

My copy of Grim; a lovely big box of Dracula: Resurrection; a few Sherlock Holmes games (Rushes would never speak to me again if I tossed those); Paradise, which I sorta like even though it's awful, and the LHOD games that aren't available on GOG (which wouldn't send you spiders anyway) stay with me but the rest...foof.
It's sales like this that make my digital game shelf much bigger than the one my physical copies occupy. grin
It just got another one when I picked up Book of Unwritten Tales for a measly five bucks.

I hope the Darkside gamers are aware of the summer sale that's still going, if a bit toned down, because there are some really good deals there waiting for them.

Gil.

Were you ever able to pick up Driftmoon, Gil? It was one of the deals last night.

lol Gil. You're allowed to make a frisbee out of SH Mystery of the Mummy. The rest you must cherish forever.

And if you had asked me if I had any frisbees in my house, I would have said no. grin
