Gog are holding a Mutator Sale and they’re hard deals to just tweet about, because it relies on interdependent pieces and not just ‘this game’s great, go grab it.’
The way the sale works is you can buy some games at a discounted rate, and then add mystery deals – ‘mutators’ – to the checkout for two bucks each. Now, I love this kind of lucky-dip purchasing (though I haven’t done any of it myself). I’d like to draw your attention to a few things in the list:
- Theme Hospital – Classic management sim, goofy style
- Thief 2: The Metal Age – The best in the Thief series of FPS stealthers
- Geneforge – Expansive RPG, great for time wasting
- Long Live the Queen – I reviewed this and concluded it was really good
- Sword of the Stars: The Pit – Pixel-art roguelike in spaaace
Now, I don’t get to buy these games myself (I own most of them already!), but the excitement of maybe opening a ~mystery gift~ is tempting. Check out the sale, you may find three games you really want for nice and cheap!
