The GOG Weekly Sale is now live according to a news post on the digital distributor's website.

If you're out to get some games on a discount, you might find something great to play in the GOG Weekly Sale that's going on right now. This particular sale is focusing on games that haven't seen much in the way of sales lately on GOG, and some of the discounts will go as high as 90% off the retail price. Here's a selection of some interesting games to consider buying!

Starting things off is Battle Chef Brigade, a rather interesting title published by Adult Swim that combines side-scrolling brawler action with puzzle-based cooking. You'll run around a game world beating the snot out of creatures to gather up ingredients for your recipes. Once you've got what you need, you'll engage in a tile-matching puzzle game to cook all of the delicacies you personally collected. Battle Chef Brigade features hand-drawn characters and monsters in an anime-esque style and two playable chefs, each with their own voice acting. Have a look at our review of the game and you'll see why it was one of the titles vying for our Indie Game of the Year 2017Battle Chef Brigade can be bought for 10% off at the price of $17.99.


Seriously, Battle Chef Brigade looks like a boatload of fun.

Besiege is a game that's currently still in development but quite a good bit of fun to play. Players are tasked with conquering enemy fortresses & armies by building their very own siege engines of destruction piece by piece. While most levels feature some kind of limitation for the size of your engine of war, you're otherwise able to freely decide how best to tackle the problem at hand. Fun fact: TechRaptor's founder spoke so highly of its game on release that I immediately bought it (and thoroughly enjoyed it). It's currently discounted 30% off to $6.99.

Craft The World is a game where you're controlling a mad little group of Dwarves who are out to survive in a hostile world. You'll begin by gathering some basic resources and constructing a simple shelter to shield you from the evils lurking about the world. As you grow stronger, you'll eventually turn your structure into a massive fortress as you delve ever-deeper underground. Players issue commands for dwarves to execute and then sit back as the little guys get to work; you can further help them out by using magic to buff their abilities or hinder your foes. It's currently 75% off for $4.74. You can also get the multiplayer DLC Dig With Friends for $3.59 (40% off) and the DLC update Sisters in Arms for $4.74 (75% off).

HuniePop is a game that combines Match 3 gameplay with a dating simulator. No, really. You take on the role of someone so woefully under-equipped for dealing with the fairer sex that a magical fairy takes pity on you and decides to instruct you in the ways of socializing with the lovely ladies out in the world. Dates in the game are represented by Match 3 gameplay, and you'll spend the time in-between those dates chatting with the girls, learning about them, and hopefully answering their questions correctly. Check out our review of the game to see what it's all about and if it sounds like your kind of jam you can snap it up for $2.49 - a 75% discount! You can also upgrade to the Deluxe Edition for a similarly-discounted $1.24 to get your hands on the game's soundtrack and a digital art collection.

Street Fighter Alpha 2 is one of the classic games you can snap up during the GOG Weekly Sale.

The Long Dark is a survival game set in the snowy wilderness of Canada. "Survival game" might bring to mind images of mining iron ore to craft a shotgun so you can kill some zombies, but that's now how this particular game rolls. It's genuinely a game about surviving against all of the terrible challenges of mother nature. You'll have to fend off starvation, freezing temperatures, and the occasional hungry wolf with whatever supplies you can scrounge in the game's Survival Mode. It also includes the first two episodes of WINTERMUTE, the game's campaign. Have a gander at our preview of the game to see our thoughts on it. You can buy it for 50% off its retail price at $17.49.

Long Live The Queen is a simulation game where you'll be playing as princess Elodie as she tries to prepare herself to take the reins as Queen. Unfortunately for Elodie, the world is filled with countless people trying to win her favor or remove her from power by any means necessary, up to and including killing the precious princess. The game is a mix of a simulation and visual novel that's quite a good bit of fun, though it might be a bit too short for some people's tastes. Still, even a shorter game's a steal at $2.49 (a 75% discount),

Street Fighter Alpha 2 is one of the classics of the fighting game genre. You'll be able to pick from 18 different fighters and play through an Arcade Mode, practice in Training, or duke it out with your friends in local co-op. This game marks the first appearance of Sakura, the world's #1 Ryu fangirl. You can get it for 67% off at $1.97.

Finally, Westerado: Double Barreled is on sale for 50% off for $7.49. This Western tale has you avenging your family who had been undone by a vicious desperado. Load up your six shooter as you track down the killer using a mix of conversation, intimidation, and gunplay - all while donning a stylish hat of your choice.
