    Free now on Epic: Pathfinder Kingmaker
    Today only.
    Pay attention, as there are also two free DLCs, but you need to get them or add them to your cart separately, and one you have to click on the "see more" link.

    Epic appears to be doing the daily giveaway for the rest of the week.
    Today is "Control"
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/control
    Apparently this was offered before back in June of 2021 because it was already in my library but I never got around to actually trying it. I certainly never bought it. Well, if you missed it before, now's your second chance.


    Passing the word
    A number of publishers and authors are putting their books on sale for the next day or two. They're also donating a portion of their proceeds to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, so now is a great time to see if there are any books where you were on the fence about - the price won't get much better and that's a great cause to support.

    Well, the daily giveaways are over on Epic, they are back to weekly giveaways.
    This week on Epic, a trilogy of Tomb Raider games.
    Tome Raider:Game of the Year Edition, Tomb Raider:20 Year Celebration, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
    https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/free-games

    Good thing too, since the Epic store was glitching for me all day, which is why I didn't make the announcement earlier. That and problems with my Windows 10 computer since 4pm today.

    There is no reason not to sign up for an Epic account or UBIsoft account. I haven't actually given them any money online. GoG has gotten some money from me, but you can still sign up for free.
    I'm mostly just reposing reports from about 5 different boards so they are all in one place.

    That said, I wouldn't mind some recommendations for free games on Steam. Separating the wheat from the chaff is difficult on there. Especially with RPGs, since it seems these days everybody is trying to throw "RPG elements" into their action games so they can try to draw in the RPG lovers while those of us who don't want our reflexes tested and liked games like Bard's Tale Trilogy, Baldur's Gate, Final Fantasy I-VII, Gold Box games, RPGMaker games, etc have to struggle to locate their favorite genre since they have diluted the search term.

    In no particular order, here's where I'm mostly drawing from:
    Sufficient Velocity
    Spacebattles
    https://forums.spacebattles.com/forums/al-harringtons-internet-bargains.58/

    GoG:
    Sometimes they pop up here, but it's usually duplicated in the above:
    https://forum.questionablequesting.com/threads/game-give-aways.843/page-29

    Note that I said I'm mostly parroting from those sources. I've seen the oddball announcement pop up in other places, like here:

    Questionable Questing has it's own thread
    https://forum.questionablequesting.com/threads/game-give-aways.843/
    Also one for games of a more adult nature.

    StarDestroyer.net used to have a thread, but it's been dead for a while. Still might have some usable nuggets in the archive.

    Does anybody know if there's a way to get e-mail alerts from GoG's forums? I forgot to check their forum for almost a week and found a bunch of links to free games. The boards these came from are in this post, #134 of this thread. There are a lot more recs I haven't reposted from before I discovered those threads.
    So, here's the repost:

    STRANGE ADVENTURES IN INFINITE SPACE
    Seems to be a Star Control clone. If you've never tried Star Control, a fan-made remake of Star Control II was released as freeware under the name "The Ur-Quan Masters" 15 years ago. Works just fine on my 1ghz Windows 98SE computer and ran fine when I made it dual-boot to XP, but I haven't tried it on anything newer.
    Anyways, Strange Adventures in Infinite Space looks like it would be fun for people who liked Star Control.

    Oil Rush is now free on Steam.

    I get emails from GOG. I checked a box at one point to let them send me spam. It's fine as it does alert me to when there are "deals" (some of which actually are, y'know, deals).

    I mean e-mail alerts from the GoG forum so I know when a thread has updated without having to manually check the page with my "favorite" threads.

    Oh, sorry. I don't actually frequent the GOG forums to be able to answer this.
