This weekend, GOGcom has put up a few big name games for sale. By this, they mean these are not reissues of old games, or  smaller scale indies, but medium and large scale productions to match the efforts of AAA developers. We’re focusing on games you likely haven’t heard of yet.

Divinity: Dragon Commander

We’ve featured Larian’s other games here before, and for good reason. What their games may lack in AAA sheen and content,  they make up for with solid gameplay and fresh ideas. Dragon Commander puts you in the shoes of a budding commander. Contend with an engaging story campaign. Choose a princess to marry and interact with various counselors and generals, each with their own agendas and biases. Expand your empire, but tread carefully, as politics constantly threatens to wreck your empire. However, the highlight and innovation of Dragon Commander is definitely in the combat, as you take to the skies in a dragon yourself in a combination of FPS and RTS strategies. Buy Here Now

Unrest

This adventure game brings a truly unique experience to GOGcom. A product of a successful Kickstarter last year, Unrest is set in an ancient India beset with gripping, realistic problems. Instead of orcs, demons, and trolls, you must contend with enemies like famine, treason, and social upheaval. Play several characters, including a peasant woman entering an arranged marriage, a priest contending with a radicalized temple, a mercenary captain, and others, as you are compelled to make hard choices, with no easy answers. What is one character’s salvation is another character’s doom, but you can get an ending favorable to everyone. Unrest is the proud product of Pyrodactyl Games, based in Jaipur, India. Buy Here Now

Banished

If you were expecting another hyperviolent action game, think again. Banished plays more like Settlers or Anno, but without the combat sections those games had. The eponymous banished want to make a new land for themselves, and so your sole goal is to build up a community into a burgeoning city. Give your citizens food, shelter, and jobs, and keep them happy, and watch as they grow this city without any restrictions. Buy Here Now
