The holiday season is over, and the new year is here. This means that the many giveaways and big sales we have enjoyed over the last few weeks are quickly fading. You still have time to grab one more freebie from GOG, however. It’s Iratus: Lord of the Dead.
Iratus: Lord of the Dead was released in 2020. You play the role of the evil necromancer (“very, very emo”) who makes a living by killing adventurers and making new monsters out of their body parts. In a 2019 preview, we said that the game “doesn’t have many new ideas.” However, it looked promising, and it was very well assembled when it left Early Access one year later.
Steven said that he was only a few hours into his first campaign and enjoyed Iratus more than I thought. I miss the intense of managing my party’s mental, physical, and spiritual health. Iratus’ art sometimes seems a bit sloppy and cheap compared to Darkest Dungeons’ beautiful hand-painted aesthetic. It’s great fun to unlock new units and discover all the ways they complement each other.
You can give it a try by visiting GOG. Please scroll down the page until you see the button that claims it. Click it, and Iratus Lord of the Dead will be added immediately to your account. The freebie will remain available until January 5th at 9 AM ET, which is also the end of GOG’s Winter Sale.
