GOG.com free games special

This is epic for those who never played these two games. They were excellent, especially Beneath a steel sky. Epic adventure gaming at its epic best. Go fucking download them



Quote:
GOG.com offers holiday gifts in the form of the free releases of Beneath a Steel Sky and Lure of the Temptress, two point-and-click adventure games from Revolution Software. The free releases from the developers of the Broken Sword series represent a discount of (calculates) infinity over Good Old Games' typical $5.99 and $9.99 price points. Though free, the games are still Windows Vista and Windows XP compatible, and contain no digital rights management. Word is: "Both games were developed by Revolution Software and famously introduced the Virtual Theatre game engine, which enabled non-playable characters to interact with the environment without players interaction. The two games have been wrapped with GOG.com's smooth and slick installers, and “Beneath a Steel Sky” even includes Dave Gibbons’ comic book inspired by the game itself."

I kid! You rock, Alucard!

I can't pay you, but let me help you out. You're a one man show here in the PC forums and spread thin. This will do these classics justice:

Good Old Games has made several of Revolution Software's early 90's 16-bit classic computer (PC, Amiga, Atari ST) adventure games available as free downloads from their site. The cult cyberpunk classic, Beneath a Steel Sky and midevil fantasy, Lure of the Temptress, are both available as free downloads. Both games have been updated to work on XP and Vista.

Revolution Software is still around today, making the Dragon Sword adventure game series for the PC and modern consoles. The original Dragon Sword - The Shadow of the Templars is even being remade and updated for a Wii and DS release. Revolution is also supposed to be working on Beneath a Steel Sky 2.
