Take up your scythes and get ready to reap, because the GOG Harvest Sale is now live. For the next couple of days, you can get Serious Sam: The First Encounter completely free, and take advantage of hundreds of deals slashing up to 91% off some of your favorite (or new favorite) games. Let's take a look!


GOG Harvest Sale Giveaway - Serious Sam: The First Encounter

Until August 26th, you can head over to GOG.com and grab yourself a free copy of Serious Sam: The First Encounter. If you're a fan of modern FPS throwbacks like DoomDusk, or Ion Fury, you owe it to yourself to check this one out if you haven't already. If you love Serious Sam as much as we do, you'll also be delighted to learn that from today, you can pre-order Serious Sam 4 directly via GOG. We strongly suggest you do so if you haven't already! Serious Sam: The First Encounter can be yours for the low, low price of nothing until August 26th at 1pm UTC.

 
 

The Best of the GOG Harvest Sale

There's plenty more on offer besides the free Serious Sam giveaway. There are over 1,000 deals available via GOG right now, so you're bound to find something you love in the Harvest Sale. Some of our favorites include Batman: The Telltale Series (50% off), a dark, gritty excursion into the Dark Knight's psyche courtesy of the legendary adventure game developers. Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts (40% off) will test your patience and aim, or if you're more of a strategy head, try Sid Meier's Civilization IV: The Complete Edition (75% off).

Lest you think that's all, think again. Take on the world as a team of confident, skilled chefs (or not, as the case may be) in Overcooked! 2 Gourmet Edition (40% off) and blow off some steam from your inevitable argument after playing that in zombie parkour-'em-up Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition (70% off). Still haven't had your horror fix? Why not check out cult horror masterpiece Phantasmagoria (35% off)? There are plenty more deals available on GOG.com, so be sure to check out the GOG Harvest Sale while the crop is good.

GOG Harvest Sale - Best of the Rest

As if a free game and oodles of deals weren't enough, GOG has some more surprises in store in the GOG Harvest Sale. As befits the name, GOG is running a promotion on upcoming RTS Iron Harvest. If you pre-order this long-in-the-making alt-history strategy game, you'll get a copy of Sudden Strike 4 entirely for free. That's right - more free games! This offer is available until September 7th at 1pm UTC.

If you're more into blowing heads off shoulders, you might want to check out the GOG Quad Damage Bundle. It consists of four games: Elderborn (currently 30% off), Hedon (also 30% off), Nightmare Reaper (20% off) and Project Warlock (60% off). If you buy all four of them together, you'll get a further 5% off your total. Plenty there to keep retro shooter fans happy for many demon invasions to come. The bundle offer's live until September 7th at 1pm UTC.


Whew. That's the GOG Harvest Sale in a nutshell, but there's lots, lots more we haven't covered here. Take your brand new combine harvester down to GOG.com and check out the hundreds upon hundreds of other deals just waiting for you to chop them off the stalks and serve them fresh to your GOG Galaxy library. The GOG Harvest Sale runs all the way through August 31st and ends at 1pm UTC on that date.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
