That is an astoundingly interesting bundle! I usually only ever find one or two things in a bundle I'm interested in. All of those look great. Yoink!

In for Distant Worlds.

Had my eye on that one forever.

Remember to read the manual guys, do NOT just dive in. What worked well for me was -- after reading the manual -- automating everything except one ship and just roleplaying a captain for a while. Really helped me grok the systems.

Suburbia on the google play store is free right now. Did I mention free?

My plan is to dive right in, aimlessly click all the buttons, and then rage quit. :p

Cheapest Monkey Tavern has been is about £4 on Steam so worth it to explore those others which look pretty good

Tacoma free on Humble.

DRM-free copy

Nice! I already have it on Steam, but I clicked the relevant buttons on Humble, in the hopes that a couple of pennies gets sent over to the developers.

Free Oxenfree on the Epic launcher as of today. And The Witness starting April 4.

That pretty much nails my experience with it.

WoW!!!, tnx for letting us know...

There’s a lot of advice on how to play the Paradox games in their respective threads. Just sayin’.

FYI, I just tried to logon to Bethesda.net to take advantage of this. But, alas, their website portal is down and not allowing users to login. https://bethesda.net/en/status

It allowed me to log in, just not use the TES25TH-MORROWIND code to redeem.

Can't get the code to work either. I already have Morrowind on disk, but figured it would be nice to have a digital copy somewhere too.

I keep getting an “invalid code” error, which just seems rude.

Got Morrowind (the best game, ever) on physical CD, Steam and GoG.

But man do I really need this one.

What platform is the free game on?

If you're weird like me and only bought Skyrim once when it came out, the Special Edition is $20. Contains the three expansions and remastered graphics.

My experience was:

- Registered a new Bethesda account;
- Tried to log in to the new account (using the same password generated by and copied from my password managed that I'd just used to register), got an "invalid password" error;
- Went through the Forgot Password process and set a new password;
- Tried to log in again using the new password, got an "invalid password" error;
- Gave up.

oh I was going ignore this since I own three copies already but not on Beth which I honestly didn't know existed. Oh wait I guess I knew they had the online game. Well I guess I'll add it if I can.
