PSA: Check your GOG accounts

27 Nov, 2018, 15:59 | Posted by: Kroms | Source: GOG
I was browsing my GOG library in search of something to play and noticed I had new copies of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People and Tales of Monkey Island. I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth (who looks anything in the mouth besides dentists, anyway?), but I had to check there wasn't a mix-up. Imagine my delight when I found this:

We'd like to thank you for being a part of GOG.COM, a community of gamers who value DRM-free ideas and preserving our gaming heritage. As a token of our appreciation, something cool from your Wishlist has been added to your library for FREE – courtesy of GOG.COM.
Visit your Library, see what's new, and enjoy the game!

Well, two games. That does make me worry less about where on earth to store any purchases I made from the Telltale Games website. I'd suggest any readers here do the same; I suspect my status as a high-rolling InstagramMixnmojo influencer isn't the only reason I nabbed an extra chance to have that damn song stuck in my head.

What does everyone else think about this?

    I'm not sure why those two games in particular. They just said they gave me "a game" from my wishlist.

    Yeah, I love them too. I make it a point to buy games from there out of principle when I can. And, like Remi said, they'd been on my wishlist (in case they ever went on sale), so GOG must have just decided to dump them over, randomly!



    These two games in particular? Then I misunderstood your post. From their comment, I thought that they were giving away a game that we had on our wishlist. But it doesn't matter, I already got more than enough good freebies from them.

    No gift on my 7-year old account. Oh well... I still like them and they are my go-to store thanks to their DRM-free approach.

    I do believe you were required to literally have them on your "Wishlist."
