Good news, PC gamers. The online retailer GOG is giving away four games for free right now. It’s unclear when they’ll go back up to regular price, so if you like free stuff and you have a PC capable of rendering the pixels of retro games, you’ll want to pick these up as soon as possible.
The games in question are all from the 1990s. You can grab Tyrian 2000, Shadow Warrior Classic Complete, Stargunner, and Bio Menace without spending a dime. And as with all GOG games, they come DRM-free.
Tyrian 2000 is a fast-moving vertical shooter that has you flying through space and blasting enemy ships with a customizable array of weapons. Shadow Warrior is a first-person shooter from 3D Realms, the makers of Duke Nukem 3D. Stargunner is a side-scrolling space ship shooter, and Bio Menace is an action platformer.
Basically, if you like shooting things in the pre-polygon era, you’re going to have a good time. And even if you don’t care for the games, at least you didn’t spend any money on them.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can also pick up September’s free PC games from Twitch right now. These include The Adventure Pals, Guild of Dungeoneering, Gunpoint, and more. And if you’re an Overwatch player, also be sure to grab your free Golden Loot Box.
