GOG Announces #NoDRM Summer Sale & Free Copy of Torchlight

GOG is having a sale on its DRM-free games! And for 48 hours, they're also offering a copy of Torchlight, no strings attached!

A break from the Microsoft beatdown... kindaGOG has always been a forerunner in the crusade against DRM in games. With the recent gamer outcry over DRM titles (no EA, I still haven’t forgiven you for Sim City yet), they stepped up to plate in a recent post reiterating their long-standing stance on “the importance of giving the ability to play their games where they want, whenever they want, and how they want. Gamers should be able to play their games on any device they own in any location, no matter the Internet quality.”They also announced a sale.Sale!That’s right, GOG has begun its #NoDRM summer sale, which will last until July 5. And for the next 48 hours, they are kicking it off with a free copy of Torchlight, no strings attached.The sale promises 50-80% off over 500 titles. Today’s deal includes their “Definitive Dungeons and Dragons” bundle which includes 80% off of Planescape: Tormet, Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2, Icewind Dale 1 and 2, Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2, Temple of Elemental Evil, Demon Stone, and Dragonshard for $21.10 USD and the “Wide A.Wake” bundle for 90% off Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare at $4.48 USD.Now, I am a huge fan of Steam and the consolidation of all my games on one stable and functional platform, but with selection and prices like this, (plus no DRM!) I could definitely go for some shopping right about now!For those of you who have never played Torchlight, I seriously recommend it. With a Diablo-style UI and flashy, bubbly, colors and locations, it's cheap, fun, and has a cast of adorably cute characters. It is single-player only, unfortunately, but certainly the best way to get your feet wet before you spring for Torchlight 2 to play with your friends!You can find these games and more here!
