Huh, weird. When I click on that link, I'm re-directed back to http://www.gog.com. :? I tried searching for "Sierra" and "Sierra on-line", even going so far as to use the "Company" drop-down to find Sierra, but still got no results. WTF? :shock:

*****EDIT*****

Here we go... This seems to work much better. Now I can actually see the Sierra titles! :D

*****EDIT #2*****

Oh yes - and Activision too. ;)

That link was for a temporary sale back in July. That's why it's no longer working.

(Just to add something for the actual topic, Syberia is currently free on GOG (click the banner at the top of the main page).)

Thanks! Added it.

Also - Heart of China and Rise of the Dragon were both released on GOG the other day.

Whoops! :oops: Sorry... I misread "Jul 11" (the date of Tawm's post) as "Nov 11". My apologies. :oops:

DeathGate is on GoG! It's a fun game - but a great (7 series) book! Back in the days before the Internet, I ran a BBS called "The NeXuS" inspired by the books, and my user ID for my own BBS was originally "Hugh the Hand" (based on a character in the first book). I ramble about my BBS on the forum here. I used to do random things like Nexus Battles using Arcade games and such!

IndieGala has a bundle with Steam keys for the LSL games (and some others) for $4.

Great to see Lighthouse get a digital resurrection. It's a lovely but maddeningly difficult game.

I hope Shivers and Shivers II are around the corner!

I've not played Lighthouse, since it came out - and as you said, insanely difficult. Like Myst and those "similar" games (I was an avid fan of Myst back in the day too - and have all of those through GoG).

But yes, I don't think I ever finished Shivers or Shivers II - so I'd love for those to get released on GOG.

I know Disney owns the whole Black Cauldron game rights, probably, that Sierra did - but I'd also love to see that.

I have no idea whatever became of my Black Cauldron game and box... It's the one I look on eBay for every once in awhile...

It is probably Sierra's most difficult game.

GOG Summer Sale's on! (Sierra games included!)

This year, I grabbed myself the first two Fallout games. I checked out after only playing the third one, but a game podcast I've been listening to sold me on giving the rest of the series a shot.
Box of Mystery, Adventure Games, Cartoons, Books and more!

Aye - I bought it since everyone always raves how good the series is!
What's the chronological playing order?

The chronological order is:
The Secret of Monkey Island
LeChuck's Revenge
Curse of Monkey Island
Escape from Monkey Island

And if you switch the middle two, that's also the order of how much I like them.
