The holiday season is here, and that means that you might have some extra time to play games. If you're looking for something to occupy your vacation, GOG's a good place to start: its winter sale begins today, and you can also grab Grim Fandango Remastered for free right now.
GOG is kicking off its big sale by giving away downloads of Grim Fandango Remastered. If you never played the original Grim Fandango when it released in 1998, it's well worth downloading the classic adventure game. It inspired and influenced a lot of game design that came after it, and the Remastered version does a good job of updating the game for modern audiences. You can get it for free until Thursday, December 14.
To download the game, click the "Get for free" button on GOG's homepage. Users have been experiencing trouble claiming the game from the Grim Fandango game page, so for the moment, download it from the homepage.
The storefront has also discounted a ton of great games, as well. Some of the highlights include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for $20 (originally $50), Cuphead for $17 (originally $20), and Absolver for $15 (originally $30). You can see all of the sales here.
GOG has gotten out ahead of other digital storefronts with its winter sale; we'll undoubtedly see Steam's holiday event coming out in the next week or two. According to recent reports, it's likely that Steam's sale will begin on December 21. Meanwhile, GOG will continue changing and updating its discounts until December 26.
