GOG is now offering free copies of VirtuaVerse, a cyberpunk point-and-click adventure from the developers at Theta Division Games. Users of the DRM-free storefront have until Monday, June 27 to claim a copy of the game, which centers around Nathan, a smuggler who has a custom headset that allows him to “see reality for what truly is” in a world that’s been dominated by artificial intelligence. VirtuaVerse is published by Blood Music and was originally released for PC, macOS, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in May 2020. Those who enjoy the soundtrack from MASTER BOOT RECORD can get currently get a copy of it from GOG for just $2.10 as part of the summer sale.
In a future not too far away, one Artificial Intelligence has prevailed over all other AIs and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network that continuously optimizes people’s experiences by processing personal data.
Playing the STORY MODE would be a great option for all those people that don’t want to deal with hardcore puzzles. You won’t miss much of the story but at the same time most of puzzles will be easier, require less conditions to be unlocked and you will deal with much less inventory objects. Some passages have been cut but the big part of the game is still there. If you are among those who gave up because the game felt too difficult this is also a good opportunity to give it a try again. Also you can still try the old school mode again once you have completed the story mode.
