Good Old Games is about to hit 6 million unique game downloads, and to celebrate, they’re giving away free stuff.
If you go to GOG.com right this very second, you’ll see a counter in the center of the screen that tracks the number of downloads from the service. When the counter hits the 6 million mark, the lucky user who tipped the scales will receive a copy of every game in the service’s catalog. Every single one. That’s just over 300 titles – from the titular good old games such as Wing Commander, to newer, but no less good, titles such asThe Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. What’s more, when the six million mark is reached, remastered point-and-click classic Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Directors Cut will be free to download for everyone with a GOG account.
GOG would like to remind you that the tracker is counting “unique” downloads, so re-downloading games you already own isn’t going to net you the big prize. Buying lots of cheap games just might, however. Considering GOG’s current sale has Dungeons and Dragons based classics like Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment for 60% off, well … this is as good a reason as any to break out the credit card of wildly irresponsible spending +1.
