Just says 15% off for me. Which, in Canadian dollars, is $11.39 down from $13.39.

Oh! It must have been a 24 hour window or something - I checked again - and it's still "on sale" but for $8.49 U.S. (normally $9.99).

Welp, glad I picked it up when it was $3.49!

EDIT: I think someone at GoG messed up! :lol: The email I clicked on states it's "15%" off - which would be the $8.49... I think someone mistakenly marked it down to $3.94... and they probably went back and caught that!

Heh that happened to me once on Steam. I picked up Terraria during the winter holiday sale for like $0.99 or something.

$2.49 for all 5 Quest for Glory games seems like both an incredible deal and a terrible crime.

Edit: or $3.39 CA, still applies. :)

I've been following Epic Games since MI recommended it and now they're having their first sale. Their library doesn't seem to be as large as GOG or Steam, but they are discounting $10 off any game $14.99 and up, and are giving away a free game every week during the sale. Worth checking out if only for the free stuff.

A Unity rendering of an old CRT to play a text game?

Partially text game, from what I understand. It's a mix of text, point and click and adventure. Not played it yet, but it sounded interesting - and free makes it harmless to try.

Previously Epic were releasing a free game every two weeks (every fortnite....get it?) since the store was opened. Games like The Witness and Super Meat Boy and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter were all offered. Now with the sale they've changed it to every week. It makes me wonder if after the mega sale that they'll stop offering the consistent free games altogether.
