I think we'll be writing about Good Old Games a lot in 2009, if moves like this are anything to go on. Especially when those moves entail Beneath A Steel Sky being offered for free.
Yes, if you pop over to GOG's website and create a new account, you'll be able to download the classic 1994 adventure game free of charge. It'll even be optimised and compatible with your fancy new Windows XP/Vista machine.
But wait! There's more!
You'll also be able to download the just-as-classic Lure of the Temptress, which was developed by the same kids, Revolution Software. Lure is also completely free of charge.
