GOG releases 3 games from Meridian4

3 very different games from publisher Meridian4 have made their DRM-free debut on GOG.

Avencast: Rise of the Mage, developed by ClockStone Studio and published in March 2010, is an action-RPG roguelike that wears its Diablo inspirations proudly on its sleeves, as it throws the player or Wizard into the middle of a demon invasion that threatens the fantasy world of Avencast.

In addition to the various spells that can be cast on unsuspecting enemies, a lot of hack-and-slash action ensues, and while it doesn’t look much different than the second Diablo back in the early 2000ies, the gameplay seems to be a lot of colorful fun.

Night Lights was made by Grave Danger Games and came out in June 2019, being a puzzle platformer that takes place at night and revolves around the concept of light and shadows, obviously, although it also has a cute little robot who wants to make a dark planet shine again.

Manipulating light and shadows is essential to progress or rather to find the pieces of a fallen star. So it’s very much an endearing game to play, to say the least.

Classic point-and-clicker The Silent Age was developed by House On Fire and published in May 2015, offering players the chance to travel through time with the unlikeliest of heroes: janitor Joe, an average Joe if ever there was one.

The reason why Joe jumps back and forth between 1972 and 2012 (which might be the past for us, but is a very bleak version of the apocalypse for the protagonist in this game) is that a dying man from the future tells him that mankind is on the brink of extinction. If solving classic puzzles works in the context of this premise remains to be seen, as not a lot is shown in the trailer, but the main idea and especially the graphics are pretty cool.

All three games are now available DRM-free on GOG with individual launch discounts that last until January 31, 2022, at 2 PM UTC.

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
