Good Old Games Gets Classic Microids Titles, Apogee-themed Promo

by Rainier on April 30, 2009 @ 9:09 a.m. PDT

Good Old Games made an agreement with Microids that will bring titles such as Mega Race 1 + 2, Haegemonia: Legion of Iron with the Solon Heritage expansion and Obscure to GOG.com for $5.99, DRM-free of course, and guaranteed to work on Vista/XP.

Microïds, the famed producer, will bring Mega Race 1 + 2, Haegemonia: Legion of Iron with the Solon Heritage expansion and Obscure to the site. The first title – a bundle of Mega Race 1 and 2 – is available now at GOG.com, DRM-free and for the meager price of $5.99.

The Mega Race series was one of the most popular futuristic racing franchises of the 90s. The game takes place in a distant future where television as we know it has been replaced by VWBT – Virtual World Broadcast Television – allowing viewers to actively participate in the programs they watch. One of the most popular channels is Mega Race, where people square off in live-or-die races with speed gangs. Your goal is to destroy all of the speed gang members and become the ultimate Mega Race champion. The series was known for its extraordinary graphics, great arcade gameplay and hilarious videos starring the host of the Mega Race channel, Lance Boyle. Even if you're not a great fan of future racers you'll have lots of fun watching as Lance tries to discourage you before each race. And that’s just one of the many great Microïds games coming to GOG.com; surely there’s a little something for everyone.

“Microïds is another great addition to the catalogue of Good Old Games. We're very pleased that more and more publishers share our vision of digital distribution,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “We've recently passed the 100 games milestone at GOG.com, and we're not stopping. We’ll continue to add more games from great publishers, producers and developers like Microïds until we’ve tapped all of PC gaming’s extensive history.”

Abrial da Costa, VP Marketing and Sales Microïds, adds: “Good Old Games is a perfect and natural partner for the digital distribution of our classic titles. We are thrilled to add our premium catalogue to the GOG.com community.”

MegaRace 1 + 2 is already available on GOG.com for $5.99 with the rest of Microïds classics planned to hit the catalogue in the upcoming weeks.

GOG.com is also running a new Apogee-themed weekend promotion at GOG.com, allowing you to buy Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold, Blake Stone: Planet Strike and Rise of the Triad for 25% or just $4.49 each. Just use promo code APOGEE before Monday at 11:59pm Eastern to take advantage of the promo price.
