Broken Sword is free at GOG.com until Saturday

This morning, at 7:39:43 a.m. EDT, a GOG.com user Dotur purchased Icewind Dale 2, pushing the digital storefront’s nique game sales counter to the 6 million mark.To mark this milestone, GOG will be sending him a gift certificate redeemable for its entire game catalogue — lucky guy. For everyone else, GOG is celebrating by offering Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Director’s Cut free for 48 hours. The offer expires October 1st at 7:59 a.m. EDT, and you can get the game here.

Shadow of the Templars is a classic point and click detective mystery starring George Stobbart, and American in Paris who happens to see an accordion-playing clown rushing out of a cafe with a briefcase. Moments later, an explosion knocks George off his feet, and and through investigating his circumstances George soon finds himself caught in a conspiracy much bigger than he could have imagined.

As with all GOG games, Shadow of the Templars is DRM-free. All you'll need to download and play the game is an account. You can use a preexisting account or make a new one. It doesn't cost anything to sign up, so do it today. Or do it tomorrow. But if you wait longer than that, you'll miss out on this free adventure.

    Scooooooore! I love Broken Sword. I love GOG too. I sent them an email that said that once and the reply was just "Um, thanks?"

    Besides the iPhone which I refuse to buy, I don't think there are any more versions of this game I can own. If ever anything deserved a HD update (like Monkey Island) it'd be Broken Sword 1 & 2. I could probably recite the dialogue alone word for word I've played it so much.

    Oh and by the way, for anyone interested in getting the above director's cut version, it's definitely the best. And that's coming from someone who played the original to death.

    A detective mystery game for free? As a Detective Mystery lover, I say F*CK YEAH!

    Thank you so very much. In the past week or so I've got Portal & Broken Sword for free & Deus Ex: Human Revolution for £1. Amazing. Just need my laptop back now to play them on...
