GOG is handing out 27 free good old games to help you overcome cabin fever.
Look, nobody is ever really prepared for a global pandemic. But, the prospect of the COVID-19 crisis stretching on for weeks, or even months, looks increasingly likely. Which means, we’ll all have a lot more time on our hands.
Sure Doom Eternal, Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Half-Life: Alyx will keep us busy for a while. But, what about when games inevitably start getting delayed? What if this virus delays the launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X? What will you play then? Finally, you say, a chance to chip away at my backlog!
Not so fast! You could play a game you’ve been meaning to play for years, or…
You could play one of these 27 other games that CD Projekt Red is giving away over at GOG.com. As far as I can tell, that’s an unprecedented number of free games. But, these are unprecedented times.

Here’s the full list of GOG free games:
- Akalabeth: World of Doom
- Alder’s Blood Prologue
- Beneath a Steel Sky
- Bio Menace
