Well, last week I posted offering a free copy of The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings – and today I am announcing a winner!

I had to REALLY dig deep for this one … joking, there was only one person who commented, so Darlin’ Rae wins! Yay! 🙂 I have sent an email with the code. I really enjoy her site, she just got married and her posts are loads of fun – check it out!

While I am at it I have ANOTHER freebie! Age of Wonders, a classic 1999 turn-based strategy game! Here is the description:

Welcome to Age of Wonders, the authentic turn-based fantasy strategy classic that started the hit series. Age of Wonders’ intimate atmosphere with painterly graphics still shines today. The game’s fully patched up, start building your fantasy empire today!

The fragile balance that existed between the ancient races, Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and others, has changed into a struggle for power and survival in the wake of the turmoil the Humans have brought to the land. Prepare for a strategy adventure where you will uncover wondrous ancient artifacts, awesome magical power, and the secrets of a shattered empire. Ally with the forces of light or darkness to determine the fate of the world in the Age of Wonders!

Recently GoG.com (Good Old Games) had their huge sale, and by checking in once a day you collected ‘stamps’, and getting all 7 stamps netted you a couple of freebies – a copy of the movie ‘The Gamers’, and the acclaimed RPG “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings”. Thing is – I already own the game, so I want to give away my copy to someone who wants to play.

Here is the description:

The second installment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. A new, modern game engine, responsible both for beautiful visuals and sophisticated game mechanics puts players in the most lively and believable world ever created in an RPG game. A captivating story, dynamic combat system, beautiful graphics, and everything else that made the original Witcher such a great game are now executed in a much more advanced and sophisticated way.

What’s New in the Enhanced Edition:
– Professional mod tool – REDkit beta: The REDkit is the best way to craft vast, living worlds – shape environments using intuitive tools and adapt them to your needs! Create your own RPG adventures and do it CD Projekt RED style!
– Additional hours of gameplay: New major adventures set in previously unseen locations, expanding the story and introducing new characters, mysteries and monsters.
– New Game Introduction and Cinematics: All new animations and cut scenes, including a new, three and a half minute pre-rendered cinematic depicting the assassination of King Demavend of Aedirn. BAFTA Award winner and Academy Award nominee Tomasz Baginski brings this key historical event to life, setting the stage for the story told in The Witcher 2.
