Free Game Fridays: Broken Sword (Director’s Cut)
GOG.com is doing a promotion to hit 6 million downloads from their website. Currently, they’ve already hit it but they haven’t taken away the promotion. Here’s what Good Old Games stated for the promotion:
Last week, during CD Projekt Fall 2011 Conference, we’ve launched a counter on the main page which indicated the number of unique games downloaded at GOG.com. Today that counter hit 6 million unique game downloads, and to celebrate this fact and to thank all of you at GOG.com, together with Revolution Software, we’re lowering the price for first part of the acclaimed Broken Sword series to “free”! In order to receive the free copy of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars free, go to the gamecard and click on “download now”, at which point the game will be added to your game shelf.
The special offer for Broken Sword is valid until October 1, at 7:59 a.m. EDT (11:59 a.m. GMT), so be sure to grab it by then and don’t forget to share the news with all your friends!!!
Broken Sword is a terrific adventure game, before Telltale took over the market with the excellent Sam & Max / Monkey Island series. If you’ve never created a GOG.com account, it’s free and simple. It’s also a great website for getting old games that are hard to find at a huge discount. There’s nothing you need to install from their website either. You only install the game you want to play. Every game they sell also has a nice bundle of extras, including the soundtrack to the game.
As for the game, here’s some video footage of the game in action:
