    Celebrating the start of their summer sale GOG.com has made the popular dungeon crawler RPG Torchlight available for free for the next 48 hours. Until Thursday at 12:59PM GMT all you need to do to get it is to create an account at GOG.com, add the game to your shopping cart and then proceed to checkout your free game.
    This deal has now ended and Torchlight is no longer available for free, but rather at a discounted summer sale price.

    And maybe just maybe some other game on sale might peak your interest? Why not have a look?

    Great game but I already have it on Steam and XBLA, so I'll pass.

    The system requirements are actually pretty darn low for Torchlight so you should certainly give it a try.

    Windows System Requirements:
    OS: Windows XP or later
    Processor: x86-compatible 800MHz processor
    Memory: 512MB
    Graphics: DirectX-compatible 3D graphics with at least 64MB of addressable memory (such as an ATI Radeon 7200, NVIDIA GeForce 2, or Intel GMA 950)
    DirectX®: 9.0c
    Hard Drive: 400MB


    They actually don't seem to limit gifts, so potentially one can send it to friends as well :p

    (Though that might not be what you meant)

    We will see. This laptop is circa 2006/7, so it might be a bit rough. :bortz:

    Thanks for the heads up! Actually registered (finally) to GOG and got about 11 games for free.. Interesting :)

    EDIT: Funny thing is that I own 28/30 of the most popular (most selling) games on disc already. I feel old.. Very old :3

    So are we still allowed to play the game after the 48 hours are up? Or is it like Steam where after those 48 hours, we can't play anymore.
