GOG’s winter sale is winding down, but the digital retailer has a post-holiday surprise for PC gamers. From now until January 1 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET, tactical RPG Tower of Time is free at GOG. All you need to do to claim the freebie is create a free GOG account.
Developed by Event Horizon, Tower of Time is an isometric RPG that blends fantasy with science fiction in a post-apocalyptic setting. It has a rather interesting setup, as you play as the main character during only the first section of the game. After the introduction, the protagonist sits takes the throne atop of the eponymous tower and watches and influences the group of champions that explore down below.
While you start off with just two champions, you’ll eventually have seven characters–each with their own distinct class and skills–to choose from when assembling your party. Tower of Time’s combat takes place in real-time, but it can be slowed down and even paused. Success hinges on planning your moves in advance.
Though Tower of Time has a story that reacts to your decisions, you can move through the roughly 50-hour adventure much faster by playing in the combat-focused RPGlite mode. For those who like tough challenges, permadeath is an option.
Tower of Time is the only freebie at GOG, but you still have time to save on tons of PC games during the winter sale. Most notably, The Witcher Universe Collection is available for just $27 until January 5. The bundle includes all three mainline games in CD Projekt Red’s fantasy series, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, and The Witcher Adventure Game.
