Flight of the Amazon Queen for Free

GOG.com now offers free downloads of Flight of the Amazon Queen. Here's word:

Flight of the Amazon Queen is a point-and-click classic sporting traditional, beautiful pixel-art graphics, funny writing, a grand story based on many prolific pulp fiction clichés, and lots of full-speech in-game dialog. You will instantly fall in love with the story's mood and pacing, and the brilliant puzzles will keep you entertained for many hours. To read a story like that in the 1940, you'd have to pay whole 10¢. Today, as a part of GOG.com 5th birthday celebration, you can play for it absolutely FREE!

No, what he's getting at is that these two games have already been free for years.

The question for some of them has been at times how well previous free releases ran on modern operating systems. (For instance, I don't remember Stargunner working properly on Win7 before without having to muck around with tools yourself, which is something that GOG manages to take care of for you.)

Protip: Goto GoG and browse games, click sort to free.

Get all the free games added to your account.

GoG changes up the free games sometimes, or has limited times where something is free, so always add them when they have them :). As someone mentioned, star gunner was last week. Blue typically has a blurb when they have a new free game, but I also check occasionally. Right now there's a few ultima games and some other ones.

This was also the case with last week's release of Stargunner. There's a soundtrack and a "making of" download. Yay, I guess?

Yeah I didn't realize there ever was a charge for this game.

edit: Huh I didn't realize this game was from 1995. I figured it was just done in a retro style on SCUMM like Beneath a Steel Sky.

edit2: lol Beaneath a Steel Sky is apparently from 1994. I guess I'm just getting owned today on a genre I'm supposedly an expert on.

But hasn't it been free for ages via ScummVM and the wonderful donation of the original devs - http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Flight_of_the_Amazon_Queen ?
