Get Beneath A Steel Sky free now.
If you haven’t come across Gog.com, it’s a DRM-free portal for downloading high-quality games of yesteryear. Games like Fallout and Fallout 2, Operation Flashpoint and my personal favourite Jagged Alliance 2, all downloadable for less than $9.99.
Good Old Games, brainchild of CD Projekt, the publisher behind The Witcher, believes that consumers will pay for these games, even DRM-free, given their quality and have persuaded a range of publishers of their model. I really hope it works.
And if you haven’t ever played Beneath a Steel Sky, go download it. It’s one of the few point-and-click adventures I ever finished, and it bears all the hallmarks of Charles Cecil, a luminary of the genre. Plus the artwork is by Dave Gibbons, who drew The Watchmen, my favourite graphic novel of all time.
