Digital games distributor GOG.com has launched their annual Summer Sale promotion, kicking things off by offering up Runic Games' original action RPG Torchlight completely free. Reiterating their feelings towards pervasive copy protection, in light of the recent Xbox One hysteria, the sale is being called #noDRM "for gamers who don't want to be treated like criminals", reminding consumers that all games on the service are freely copyable once downloaded.
In the last few months, there has been a lot of outcry from gamers over DRM and how it is changing our favorite form of entertainment. If it keeps growing, it may well take a large part of the fun out of gaming. As anti-DRM crusaders, we're very glad to see that the issue of restrictive digital rights management has become an item of public debate, and we want to make sure that our #NoDRM stance is clear. None of the games in our sale have DRM, and none of our games ever will.
More than 500 games are expected to go on sale over the next 17 days, with 150 of those being slashed up to 85% off in daily deals from now until July 5th 2013.
Today's daily bundles include all of GOG's D&D titles, with such greats as Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2, Planescape: Torment and others; and 90% off as well on Alan Wake and Alan Wake's American Nightmare.
