Merry GOGmas everyone!

By Hans Wuerflein

It’s the holiday season and Good Old Games is getting in the spirit.

Until December 24, anyone with an account on GOG (and yes, new sign ups count) can download the first two games in the Tex Murphy series for the low, low price of free.

Also they have announced that for people who already own the games (like me) there is a link on the promo page to get some special deal, still to be determined.

Mean Streets and the sequel Martian Memorandum are point-and-click adventure games from the early ’90s.   They are film noir style detective stories set in the future.  Think Blade Runner.

GOG has been one of my favorite sites for a while now, and if you haven’t checked it out, now is the perfect time.  They also have a few other classic point and click adventure games that are free regularly, like Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress, so there really isn’t a reason not to sign up for an account.

The games are all DRM free, often have bonus stuff like soundtracks or .pdfs of manuals, and the highest priced games on the site are $10.

I knew this was going to sound like an ad, but GOG really is a great site and I want people to support them.
