Ubisoft Paris Studios and Microids’ classic 2003 espionage FPS, XIII, is currently up for grabs on GOG as part of its ongoing Spring Sale. The game is loosely based on a graphic novel of the same name, which would explain why the developers decided to go for a cel-shaded aesthetic. Be sure to claim it quick, as the deal is only available for the next 48 hours (41, technically, based on the time of this posting).

The President of the United States of America has been assassinated and you’re the world’s prime suspect. The FBI, the CIA, and a gang of murderous killers are trying to hunt you down. Stricken with amnesia you remember nothing, not even who you are. You’re on your own and there is no one you can trust. All you have is a safe deposit key, a mysterious tattoo, and a gun. Clear your name, solve the mystery, and catch the true assassin before he strikes again.

• Exciting espionage story and fast paced action
• Top-notch voice acting preformed by actors such as David Duchovny and Adam West
• ‘Cel-shaded’ graphics and comic book like narration brings the experience of the acclaimed comic book to life on your computer
