Majesco Entertainment brings Psychonauts, the BloodRayne series and Advent Rising to the DRM-free classic-gaming megastore.

Warsaw, Poland – November 5, 2009: GOG.com (http://www.gog.com), the premier destination for fans of classic PC games, now offers titles from Majesco Entertainment. The agreement expands GOG.com’s catalogue with the additions of Psychonauts, BloodRayne, BloodRayne 2 and Advent Rising. Coinciding with the announcement, GOG.com has released Psychonauts for $9.99 and Advent Rising for only $5.99.

Created by legendary game designer Tim Schafer, Psychonauts is a classic action-adventure game that was highly acclaimed by critics and received numerous awards. Players step into the shoes of Raz, a ten-year-old circus acrobat with psychic powers, as he takes up training at the Whispering Rock Summer Camp, a breeding ground for Psychonauts. Raz sets off on an incredible trip through the psyches of many of the camp’s inhabitants, and the ensuing adventure is full of hilarious dialogue and time-tested gameplay.

Advent Rising is a science-fiction action-adventure game that features a script written by famed sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card, the author of “Ender’s Game” and “Speaker for Dead,” both awarded the Hugo and Nebula awards. The game introduces Gideon Wyeth, a rookie space pilot who lives a happy life until a terrifying message about an alien invasion appears. Gideon has to face the vicious race of the “Seekers” and save his homeland with futuristic weapons and psychic powers.

One of GOG.com’s main goals is to bring games that were overlooked back into the spotlight,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “Games like Psychonauts perfectly embody the ‘Good Old Game’ and we’re thrilled to be bringing that game, along with other quality titles like BloodRayne and Advent Rising, to a new audience.

Psychonauts and Advent Rising are already available for download at GOG.com for $9.99 and $5.99, respectively, DRM-free and compatible with Windows XP and Vista. Other titles from Majesco’s catalogue will be added in the coming weeks.

  1. wait, advent rising and bloodrayne? i thought the name was GOOD old games…

  2. As a first time user of GoG I have to say that their service is excellent. The catalogue is full of great games, so much so that the cash I would have spent on MW2 this month is going to be spent there……. OOooh Beneath a Steel Sky is FREE! Now thats a price I like. But seriously, there realy are some great games to be had and at $9.99 or less whats the worst that can happen?
