The DRM-free game purveyors at GOG.com have announced that they’ve gone a bit German, with a 97% off sale to celebrate. And don’t worry – I’ll refrain from terrible “jokes” about lederhosen and beer.
This means a few things. First, the entire site can now be made German through the drop-down menu at the top; if German is your native language (or if you just fancy browsing around in German) then you can feel a lot more comfortable there at the click of a button. Second, there’s now a German section on the forums. Third, there’s now German customer support. And fourth, another 25 games have been localised in German.
GOG being GOG, though, this means it’s time for a sale. Plenty of German games are on offer for cheap this weekend, with the highlight probably being point-and-clicker Deponia at a whopping 97% off ($0.49). But perhaps you’d rather The Settlers, or Blackguards, or Omerta? Welp, they’re all on sale too! Just not at 97% off.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
