As a part of its continuing fifth birthday celebrations, GOG has released the shoot ’em up Stargunner as a free gift for its customers.
Last week GOG unveiled a fancy new sale to help celebrate its fifth birthday and, in the process, also promised customers that further discounts and new releases were on the way to keep the party rolling. The digital retailer recently made good on the new release with Stargunner, a side-scrolling shoot ’em up game that drops you in the cockpit of a starfighter and tasks you with the age old goal of blowing stuff up.
What makes Stargunner especially special is the fact that it’s being given away completely free of charge. All you need to do is log into your GOG account and you can download it at your leisure. This free-of-charge status puts it in the company of an already impressive and expanding list of complimentary GOG products. Aside from Stargunner, this list includes: Teen Agent, Lure of the Temptress, Tyrian 2000, Dragonsphere, Beneath a Steel Sky and Ultima IV.
Granted, not every single one of those games are acclaimed classics, but honestly, don’t look a free game in the mouth. That’s how that saying goes, right? Any who, the added joy of not paying money set aside, Stargunner is still a really fun game that should more than please fans of side-scrolling action titles. In turn, it has us excited to see what else GOG might have in store for the rest of its birthday celebrations.
