GOG.com. the DRM-free digital distributor, will be getting some brand new indie titles on their service this week. GoG has always been a beloved service in the gaming community and this addition of titles only strengthens that bond. It’s also a great way to get these smaller titles some more well-deserved exposure. What are these titles you ask? Well, they are Spelunky (Review!), Divinity: Dragon Commander, and Papers, Please.
GOG.com always releases games that span a variety of genres on any given week, but this week’s releases represent a truly incredible diversity. Dragon Commander, already making a name for itself as an ” impressive, robust experience” (Games Radar) that puts “big issues on the main stage” (IGN), is a fresh mix of turn-based grand campaign, real-time strategy battles, and dragon combat. Spelunky, praised for its blend of fun and challenge, is an award-winning, unforgiving roguelike platformer. And this week’s final indie release Papers, Please is a narrative-driven procedural simulator, in which you peek into people’s lives and uncover terrorist plots as an immigration inspector creating an “experience unlike any other” (Digital Spy).
It’s fascinating to see Papers, Please begin to gain so much attention. It’s such a unique concept, one that I didn’t think people would latch onto like they have. You can download all these indie titles and much more at GOG’s website.
