Get Mable & The Wood free in the GOG Spring Sale for 48 hours

By - | Views: 13,928

During the GOG Spring Sale, they've teamed up with Triplevision Games / Graffiti Games to offer their unique Metroidvania experience free for 48 hours.

"Mable & The Wood is a Metroidvania where you hunt down massive beasts and, upon destroying them, shapeshift into their forms in order to use their powers to save or destroy the world. Players with less violent intent can find secret paths to complete Mable without killing anything, including bosses."

It's not just taking the powers of creatures that makes it unique, it's also that you cannot run and jump around like you might expect from the platformer-like style to it. Instead, you have to use your special powers by launching yourself through the air, and then pulling your massive sword back towards you.

Not seen it before? See the trailer below:

Feature Highlight:

  • Your choices matter - The cult wants you to kill everything, but it's up to you whether or not you listen to them or find your own path and unlock the multiple endings
  • A rich story with a diverse cast of characters who have their own take on this whole 'end of the world' thing
  • Combat is movement and movement is combat - Mable can't lift her magical sword, so she has to use it in unique ways to move through the world
  • A large and varied fantasy world, brought to life with state-of-the-art pixel technology and a beautiful original soundtrack
  • Multiple endings, different routes to take through the world and secrets to discover

Grab Mable & The Wood free on GOG.com.

Also, if you missed it, GOG also have a dedicated list of their free games. There's certainly no shortage of free experiences right now. Do check out our previous article highlighting some on itch.io.

Can't get the game to run. Apparently it relies on an old version of libcrypto (or libssl?) that I don't have.

It relies on SSL 1.0.0 apparently, got the same issue. Will try to wrap up a quick patch for you


EDIT:

This should do the trick, just drop the files in the game's folder (where GOG's own 'start.sh' file is): http://jrugia.com/files/Mable_SSL_1.0.0_Patch.tar.gz

Compiled from libssl source 1.0.0s.

Many thanks, although I'm getting a file not found error when I try to download.

Works perfectly. You're the hero we don't deserve.

Now I have to figure out why it's not recognizing my Steam Controller (I have SC Controller running so it should work) but does recognize my USB 360 controller when I plug that in.

EDIT: wtf? Steam controller almost works if I turn SC Controller off. Movement still doesn't work, but several of the buttons do, although they're mapped differently. This is all very strange.

ssl is not a problem here, openSUSE has packages for ssl 1.0.0. But WTH are they using libcurl-gnutls? And then don't add it to the game package.....
(I have one, from Victor Vran, but that is 32bit). RPM packages for it are basically non-existent...

I have over two-dozen games in my GoG library, and I think I only paid for like 5 of them. These constant giveaways are insane.
