Free Game Monday! You can now claim a fully free copy to keep of Hellpoint, the souls-like action RPG during the GOG.com Summer Sale but the giveaway doesn't last long. Blurring the lines between sci-fi and fantasy, Hellpoint is a thorough challenge with some exceptionally beautiful scenes spread throughout the space station you're running through.

"Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now overrun by cruel interdimensional entities acting as puppets of the malevolent Cosmic Gods.

You have been created by the Author, organically printed on Irid Novo and sent on a mission to find out the unholy series of events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Merge."

Game Features:

  • Irid Novo is a massive interconnected world full of mysteries, hidden passages and secrets within secrets - all for you to explore in any order you like. More dread and shivers awaits you as you travel deeper into the darkest corner of this forsaken colony.
  • Dozens of melee and ranged weapons and armor pieces to suit your playstyle. Every weapon has unique special abilities that unlock the more you fight with them.
  • A fascinating new sci fi universe reminiscent of classic sci-fi movies, set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm and complete with a deep lore and goosebump inducing soundtrack.
  • The space station orbits in real time around an ominous black hole that triggers various dynamic events such as boss appearances, horde assaults as well as modified enemy stats and positions.
  • If you are struggling, ask a friend to press Start to join in a couch coop session, or call for assistance online. The entire game can be completed uninterrupted in coop. The loot is shared, and the experience of local player two is saved and not watered down.

To claim your free copy, head over to GOG.com. There's a big banner if you scroll down a bit which you can't miss. You have until June 16, 1PM UTC to claim the free to keep copy.

As for the GOG Summer Sale there's plenty to find with GOG still having some big lists up like:

This is a bad ass game that I should play more of. It's hard, but the setting is amazing.

I had a lot of fun with this. Great atmosphere and just the right level of "difficult, but do-able". Unlike when I played Dark Souls 3 and absolutely hated how unforgiving it is. Some of Hellpoints fights are hard, sure, but nothing like as bad as that.

I actually finished this and enjoyed most of my 35 hours doing so.

The final fight the with final 'True' bosses can be brutal.

If you mean the gods, then I skipped one of them, but of the two I fought, one was pretty straightforward, the other I couldn't beat because he did too much radiation damage... but then I came back in a space suit and it was a total breeze!

I think the game lets you potentially massively "underbalance" your stats. I was a heavy armour guy, so I had taken many, many points in Load... something you just wouldn't do if you wore light armour. But if you try to fight the radiation god without that space suit, I genuinely wonder how you could survive. But without tonnes of points in Load, if you wear the space suit, you basically can't move.

Other than that minor piece of potentially unbalanced gameplay, it's great though. I love the potential customisations. And some of the weapons are just so satisfying (although again, you'll tend to specialise massively around just one of them, sadly).

I meant Sentient Boss and Prodigal Spawn. All of other fights are decent this one was more difficult for my initial builds.

I don't think that DS3 is unforgiving, is the most fair in the series IMO. Even the fantastic Nameless King.

DS2 is bad, cheap encounters, a lot of awkward traps.

I still haven't beaten Bloodborne because it pisses me off.

The knights in DS3 don't observe stamina, so they just spam constant huge attacks. I hate it when games lay out mechanics, then just plain ignores it for enemies. I love Advance Wars, but it still pisses me off when enemy artillery ignores fog of war... but my artillery don't.

So, I went off DS3 pretty quickly.
