If you've wrapped up the spring hits and wondering what you'll do in the next couple months before the next Madden title sounds the horn of Fall releases, then the folks over at GOG.com would like to entice you with a big Summer Sale. I mean, big. 1300 titles big. And hey, we've even gone through and put together a little co-op collection for all you co-op lovers out there.
The sale runs for the next two weeks until Monday, June 18 around 6:00 PM EDT, so you should have plenty of time to scroll through the full list of games and make some choices about how much of your money to dish out for some DRM-free games. The good news is that if you spend just $5 during the sale, you'll get a free copy of the survival/exploration title, Sunless Sea (not co-op, sadly, but still fun!) Spend $20, and you'll also get a copy of the adventure title RiME. There's also a giveaway going on right now until 9:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, June 6 where you can get a free copy of Xenonauts, a turn-based strategy game that "recaptures the original X-COM: UFO Defense gameplay." Sounds like this won't be the only giveaway during the sale, either.
Here's some more info from the official press release:
