Get your party streamers ready and take the cake out of the oven, because it's the GOG 11th anniversary! How time flies. GOG reckons there's no better way to celebrate this occasion than by offering a whole bunch of games on sale, some new, some old. Let's have a look at what GOG is doing for its birthday bash!

GOG 11th Anniversary Sale - The Return of XIII

Hey, have you heard? Stylish first-person cel-shaded shooter XIII is getting a remake. What better way to celebrate than by revisiting the original on GOG? XIII tells the story of an unnamed amnesiac as he digs through a conspiracy that goes right to the top. This is the perfect time to check out this diamond in the rough, especially as it's so cheap on GOG. David Duchovny voices the protagonist. What more motivation do you need?

GOG 11th Anniversary Sale - Highly Requested Games

GOG has also added a bunch of new games for its 11th-anniversary sale. Retro FPS fans will love DUSK (25% off), just as I did. The GOG version even comes with a new map, The GOGatorium, for the endless mode. Procedurally-generated Metroidvania platformer Chasm (35% off) is well worth a look, and although it's not perfect, it's a decent stab at a difficult genre. Finally, twin Mars RPGs Mars: War Logs (75% off) and The Technomancer (65% off) are great for stat-hungry sci-fi lovers.

GOG 11th Anniversary Sale - Staff Picks

For its 11th anniversary sale, GOG is also bringing back the much-loved Staff Picks feature. Each of these games has been lovingly handpicked by members of the GOG team. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition (70% off) needs no introduction; it's a superlative RPG with excellent writing. Hollow Knight (40% off) beggars belief with its massive amount of content and emotionally resonant storyline. For a classic RPG fix, check out Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition (66% off). The staff at GOG have pretty great taste, eh?

As usual, there's plenty more we haven't even mentioned. Go check out the GOG 11th anniversary sale right now for even more ridiculous bargains. In the grand spirit of XIII, I wish I could forget some of these games so I could enjoy them for the first time all over again.
