It's adventure time on GOG with up to 50% off classic Activision games

One of our favorite digital distributors is running the "Adventures with Activision" promo this weekend, bringing to mind heartwarming tales of friendship, ponies, and heavy discounts on classic games. It's like my childhood all over again!

Some of Sierra's best point-and-clicks are discounted by 50% over at GOG.com—you can never go astray with some Gabriel Knight, or the later episodes of King's Quest. (A tip to get you through the sometimes-brutal puzzles of the latter: despite everything you may have learnt in life, pies are not for eating.) Fans of town ownership can join the fun too, with some Egyptian- and Roman-flavored city-builders available in the form of Pharaoh and Caesar 3.

There's three days left on the offer. All up, there's 32 games discounted—the entire lot comes to about $122 of savings, if you're crazy enough to think you'll have time for all those games. When picking and choosing, prices range from $3 to $5. My personal suggestion? Try the Phantasmagoria series for the very best of FMV horror; there's no better way to have a terrible time this weekend.
