Until September 3, Good Old Games is offering players the chance to get three classic retro action games completely free.
By September 3, Good old games gives away three critically acclaimed retro-action games for free. These range from the title of Complex Sci-Fi Strategy Union Wars to the hack-and-slash role-playing game Underworld Ultima series.
Often abbreviated as GOG, Good Old Games is a digital distribution platform for video games and films. Additionally, the storefront is widely available on multiple operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. It must be said that GOG is DRM-free, a feature celebrated by gamers because it means that no account authentication or online login is required to play any of the following titles.
Syndicate More is a real-time isometric tactical and strategy game from Bullfrog Productions, released in 1993 on various platforms, starting with the PC and the Commodore Amiga. Set in a dystopian future in which corporations have replaced governments, Union puts the player at the helm of a company vying for world domination. Agent armaments, cybernetic modifications, and behavioral attributes can be controlled by the player to make them more suited to the vast array of blood-splattered businesses. This title is available on Windows (7, 8, 10) and Mac OS X.
By placing much more emphasis on the strategic elements of Syndicate More, the acclaimed follow-up Union Wars is now free. The sequel manages to retain the core gameplay and perspective of the original, but with a frame of 95 years into the future. However, unlike the previous installment, Union Wars offers the Multicorp competitive multiplayer mode. Often described as a mixture of earthquake and Order and conquer, Multicorp pits players against each other in all-out war, the main goal being to eliminate the opposing company. Players can grab it on Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8) and Mac OS X.
To finish, Ultima Underworld 1 and 2 are revolutionary first-person role-playing games developed by Blue Sky Productions, later Looking Glass Studios. The original Underground world takes place inside the Great Stygian Abyss, a large cave that contains the remains of a failed utopian civilization. Here the player assumes the role of the Avatar and attempts to save the kidnapped girl from a baron. It’s a stark contrast to the sequel which spans multiple dimensions, with the end game being to stop an evil Guardian from taking over the world. Both are accessible on Windows (7, 10) and Mac OS X.
In an industry filled with $ 60 games, these widely celebrated free games are a huge financial breath. It’s also worth noting that no payment is required to sign up for Good Old Games, which means any player can purchase any of the games listed without having to spend a single dollar.
Good old games is available on Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux.
