Thanksgiving is over and the post-turkey panic of Black Friday shopping is upon us. GOG kicked off a little early with the start of its Black Friday sale on Wednesday and offered Narita Boy as part of it. It looks like the site isn’t done giving away goodies just yet, as you can see right now Territory (opens in new tab)a game that GOG describes as an “atmospheric 3D tile-based tycoon game” set in a vineyard.
It looks like a rather nice venture, with a low-poly isometric style that’s pretty clean and minimalistic. Each playthrough takes you through 60 years of winemaking, starting with a single hexagonal tile to grow, crush, and age your wine. You can eventually work your way up to 33 tiles, with six tile types that can affect each other depending on where they are placed. There are several grape varieties to grow and a “dynamic weather system that reflects the unpredictability of real world climate”.
Even the unofficial PC Gamer mascot Geralt of Rivia got in on the Terroir action when it was first released in 2017. By that I mean an unknown member of the team spent a few hours role play like him on the website (opens in new tab). I have no idea who it is, and I’m not sure I want to know, but it’s great to read. Whoever wrote this really knows his Geralt.
You can grab Terroir for free on GOG until November 28 Bee 6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm GMT. If you missed Narita Boy, you can still grab it for 65% off during the site’s Black Friday sale. GOG says it currently has over 4,000 games on sale with discounts as high as 90%, so it’s worth checking out to pile up that ever-growing backlog. Here are a few we picked as good deals. It is worth noting that these are the same price as Steam Fall Sale (opens in new tab)so it really comes down to launcher preference.
