The Last Express Surprises GOG Users; Dark Reign Also Available

4
Do you feel that there is a serious lack of sci-fi, real-time strategy titles in your life? Good Old Games aims to fill that void with its latest release: Auran's 1997 strategy title Dark Reign: The Future War and its expansion The Rise of the Shadowhand.

Yesterday, Good Old Games revealed the availability of the two games--pricing the pair as a bundle for $9.99. Unlike your average GOG.com release, there are very few bonuses included in the package. Except for a sweet 56-page manual. (We're holding out for multiple languages!)

In related news: Today marks a special, surprise release for GOG.com users. Jordan Mechner and Smoking Car Productions' gorgeous 1997 title The Last Express has just been added to the game's library of DRM-free, PC titles.

Unlike the game's release on DotEmu, Good Old Games is offering the classic adventure title for $5.99. With surprises like these, we're almost willing to forget the last time GOG.com pulled a fast one on us. Almost.

    I remember playing the shit out of Dark Reign back in the day.

    As for the last express, well that goes without saying.

      Dark Reign is probably my favorite 2D strategy game from the 90's. The whole ability to give units 'Personalities' or whatever, awesome. I loved making scouting units and setting them to 'Pester' (I think it was).

      Annoying the hell out of my when we'd play 1v1. They'd bounce all over the map, come only within viewing range of his units and run away. Just drove him nuts.
