This year’s free game is the prison management sim Prison Architect. It’s available to claim for the first 72 hours of the sale – all you need is an account, and click the Claim button the main page.

Aside from the freebie, the sale also includes over 3,300 discounted PC games up to 91% off. That’s a daunting catalog to search through. Thankfully GOG has several curated lists of discounted games, such as the Star Wars Essential Bundle, Disney Essential Bundle, The Mighty RPG Bundle, and a bundle that highlights all the most heavily discounted games.

There’s an even a Happy Family Collection, which includes family-friendly games like Costume Quest, Hello Neighbor, Kerbal Space Program, and several LEGO games.

Some of the publisher bundles include deals if you buy multiple games. For example, purchasing 3 or more games by Paradox Interactive nets an even deeper discount on the total.
