GoG.com is currently offering Runic Games’ diabolically addictive single-player dungeon crawler Torchlight for free as part of their #NoDRM Summer Sale. Gamers who happened to miss out on the loot-centric title can snag the DRM-free download for free until 12.59 pm GMT on 20 June 2013. In addition to Torchlight, GoG’s sale features over 500 DRM-free titles at half-off, along with another 150 games featuring a whopping 85% slashed from their retail prices.
The idea for the #NoDRM sale was born out of all of the digital rights management controversy that surrounded last Week’s Electronics Entertainment Expo. Good Old Games supports the gamer who believes they should own the product they buy with their hard earned dollars, and not just a license. To drive this message home, they have decided to offer hundreds of games and daily bundles at huge savings, with absolutely no DRM, of course. While we don’t think this move is going to change the minds of the powerhouse publishers benefiting from draconian DRM management, it’s definitely a message we can get behind.
In addition to the sale, GoG has also released 11 new Mac titles today, including System Shock 2. This is the first time the cult classic Sci-Fi horror has been featured on the Mac platform. The other DRM-free Mac releases released today are Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, Realms of Arkania 1+2, Return to Mysterious Island, Realms of the Haunting, Normality, Amerzone, Nox, Megarace 1+2, Atlantis 1, and Jack Orlando: A Cinematic Adventure.
The #NoDRM Sale runs from now until July 5th. These games are being offered as daily deals, so keep checking back at GoG.com to make sure you don’t miss out on #NoDRM Sale offerings.
