I think we should have a thread for discussing limited time game offers. This is for posting about free promotional give-aways of commercial games, or bundle deals on games that should interest people in the community.

This means an emphasis on thinking games and especially puzzle games, but feel free to post anything that isn't blatant self promotion. The most interesting games should get their own threads, of course.

To start out, here is a free game offer from GOG. You need to register to the site to claim it, but that is free too. The game unfortunately appears to be Windows only.

https://www.gog.com/game/eador_genesis

What is it? Eador: Genesis is a turn-based fantasy strategy game. It's similar in spirit to classic TBS games like Master of Magic or the Warlords series that became popular in the 90s (and perhaps the Heroes of Might and Magic series, but I have never played them). People who are fans of the genre have given it generally positive reviews.

EDIT: The offer has expired now. I hope you had a chance to grab a copy if it's the kind of game you like.

I would have liked to try this, but I didn't hear about it until now, despite being on GoG's mailing list. I've complained to them in the past about sending me email announcements for 1-day sales after the sale ended.

On Friday, June 16th, Gog offers Fantasy General for free for 48 hours. It will be available until Sunday the 18th (depending on your time zone).

It's a fantasy-themed instalment from a 90s series of war games. There are reviews on the linked page to help you decide if it's something you'd like to try.
