GOG midweek sales: “Family-friendly games and a mixed set”

GOG has two midweek sales this time: one featuring games for the whole family to celebrate the International Children’s Day and one covering various genres.

The first promo sale unsurprisingly includes many cute and (almost) non-violent titles and as I’m very fond of colorful games (as much as darker ones, of course), the following recommendation list includes quite a few I’ve already covered one way or another (although there are many many more that passed me by unnoticed):

While compiling these lists, I’ve again found out how many interesting games there are and how little time there is to play and review them all. Maybe I’ll give the shorter indie titles a chance, but then again I’d also like to do the bigger ones justice. Oh well, at least these lists will make writing future promo sales articles much easier and faster.

Both sales run until June 5, 2022, at 10 PM UTC.
