Looks like the Epic freebie has changed. It's not For The King, it's Sundered: Eldritch Edition instead.

Two 80s classics are free on GOG.

The Lords of Midnight

Mike Singleton's '84 classic Adventure Strategy game, brought to and updated for Windows.

"The Lords of Midnight is not simply an adventure game nor simply a war game. It was really a new type that became known as an epic game, for as you play the Lords of Midnight you will be writing a new chapter in the history of the peoples of the Free. You will guide individual characters across the land of Midnight on vital quests but you will also command armies that must endeavour to hold back the foul hordes of Doomdark, the witch king. Yours will be no inevitable victory." - Mike Singleton 1984.

- Retro style high resolution graphics.
- Story Based Adventure - complete with Novella.
- Easy dip in/dip out, turn based game play.

Doomdark's Revenge

Mike Singleton's '85 classic Adventure Strategy sequel to The Lords of Midnight "It is many moons now since the Lords of Midnight first appeared out of the soft, wearing gloom. Those of you who took up their challenge and rode with them to battle against the cruel Witchking will need no reminding of that epic struggle. But now a new epic tale unfolds, the story of Doomdark’s Revenge.

The game itself involves both quest and warfare, both exploration and careful strategy. You can play on your own or with friends; there are enough different characters at your command for all the family to join in and struggle against Shareth Heartstealer, Empress of the frozen Empire!" - Mike Singleton - 1985

- Retro style high resolution graphics.
- Story Based Adventure - complete with Novella.
- Easy dip in/dip out, turn based game play
