IMO the best deal on GOG right now is Renowned Explorers: International Society, 75% off (plus, the expansion More to Explore is also on sale at 33% off).

I've only played it for an hour or so, but it's great so far.

Yeah, but it is a bit odd that the Bundle is not on sale. https://www.gog.com/game/renowned_explorers_bundle

I picked it up last week at a sale on Steam, but it had issues with the screen resolution & windowed mode. So I requested a refund. Has the version on GOG similiar problems?

No problems on my end. Both full screen and in windowed mode the game works flawlessly for me.

Bargains are one of my favourite subjects. For me, achieving a bargain is "like winning a game". Heh.

One of the biggest bargains I've spotted is for "Planetary Annihilation". It's a Command & Conquer-like Real Time Strategy game. Gets a score of 62% average on Metacritic.

Currently running at 97% discount on Bundlestars: https://www.bundlestars.com/en/game/planetary-annihilation

Noting - Cross platform multiplayer, and single player campaign. Recently updated (Nov 2016). Already own it (and TITANS) so not buying it for myself.

---

Other than that, I bought "And So It Was" on Steam for £0.47 (90% discount): http://store.steampowered.com/app/432590/

A simple rogue-like ARPG game. Seems like the controls are a bit of a pain until you get used to them.

Well, I ran into the same problem. Only about 60% of the screen are shown if I play full screen. Which seems to be known problem for over a year now . But at last I got it to work in windowed mode after finding the correct settings.ini.
