GOG Summer Sale 2016

GOG has fired of its summer sale for 2016. They're set to offer, so they say, more than 1,000 discounts and a few free games to boot.

For starters, Sytem Shock 2 is available for free during the first 48 hours. What's the catch? You'll need to download and install the GOG Galaxy client. Think of it like the Steam client. It's both a game launcher, the connection to your GOG library and their marketplace.

Other free games are coming, too, but they require some action. Spelunky will be available once you hit 5,000 XP, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers will be free at 15,000 XP and the Dreamfall Chapters Season Pass will be free once you hit 30,000 XP.

How do you get XP? Good question. You need to, as they say in marketing board rooms, interact with GOG's product. Check in through the client on a daily basis, add games to your Wishlist, visit specific pages, share the sale on Twitter or Facebook, you get the deal.

Grab the client, snag your free game and then cruise for deals on awesome titles old and new. You'll find tons.
