Thanks, Donald. smile

I also saw that GOG is removing about thirty-five games from their catalogue - you will see the list on GOG - if you buy them between now and September 1st, they will stay in your Purchase History after they have been removed and you can download them at any time; all of these games are deeply discounted. There are only a few adventure games on the list and the rest are other genres. Worth checking out to see if anything on the list interests you before they are no longer for sale.

It looks like they're removing the Black Mirror games, and they were just added to the site not too long ago. sad Luckily, I'd already bought Black Mirror 1. I went ahead and purchased the second, even though I already own the disk version. It's really a shame; I hope they come back at some point.

I'd already bought Black Mirror 1 at GOG and was waiting for them to offer Black Mirror 3 before buying Black Mirror 2, since the original Black Mirror 2 was only half the story. I went ahead and bought Black Mirror 2 today since GOG won't be selling it anymore.

But I think what GOG is selling as Black Mirror 2 may be both 2 and 3.

My Black Mirror 2 DVD was 3.25 GB.
However the total size of the Black Mirror installer files at GOG are a little over 4.2 GB.

So I wonder if GOG combined the original Black Mirror 2 and 3 into a single game and called it Black Mirror 2. That would explain why they never offered Black Mirror 3.

Hi Marian.

I just visited GOG but couldn't find a list of "Games to be Discontinued".

Is it the "Sale" list ??

If it isn't, could you please provide a link ??

Cheers.

Mad, the list of games that are being removed from the catalogue are the "Last Chance Special" sale games, which I presume is the list that you already saw when you were looking at GOG. wave

Yep, not many Adventure games, unfortunately. The only one that I really would want to play again is "Dark Fall, The Journal. I have the game disk though. Guess I'd better check Drac's list to see if it can be played.

Jenny, that's interesting! It seems as though the extras offered - poster, soundtrack, etc. - only pertain to Black Mirror 2 however. Maybe the file is just larger because they are offering different language selections? It's only speculation on my part; I haven't downloaded the game yet since I already have the disk version installed on my computer. Maybe my curiosity will get the better of me, and I'll try it out sooner than expected just to see what the reason is. smile If the download does included Black Mirror 3, then we really got a bargain with two games for little over 2 dollars. yes

I saw a "Sale" heading but not a "Last Chance Special" woozy

I'll go take another look in case I just can't see what's right under my nose lol

Thanks, Marian smile
