Those looking for something new– or, well, old– to play this Summer can check out Good Old Game’s new 2013 #NoDRM Summer Sale. Serving as the Sony to Steam’s Microsoft, GOG looks to be capitalizing on its more open ownership policy by putting about 85% of their library on sale.
New sales will roll around each day until July 5th, with today’s being their Dungeons and Dragon’s pack 80% off and their Alan Wake bundle 90% off. In addition, the first Torchlight is entirely free for the next 48 hours, which is a lovely catch for anyone who wants some DRM-free Diablo. (Nope, not using the hashtag twice. Nice try, though.)
It will be interesting to see how their strategy of deep and broad cuts can compete with Steam’s own inevitable Summer sale, and how the recent fervour surrounding the philosophy and concept of game ownership will play into the digital realm.
