GOG sale: Krondorian betrayals, masquerades, steamworks and magick obscura

GOG's weekend sale caters to those who appreciate substantial, fantastic heft -- enough to sustain a novelization or two. The download service is offering a 30 percent discount on four Activision-published RPGs, including Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura (pictured) at $4.19, and the Feist-fueled Betrayal at Krondor Pack, which includes an additional betrayal in Antara for $4.19.

The same discounted price also applies to Return to Krondor, a divisive sequel that spent years in tumultuous development, and Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption, Nihilistic Software's flawed take on the pen-and-paper RPG of the same name.

The connection between Arcanum and Vampire? Arcanum's now-defunct developer Troika went on to finish Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines in 2004, notably becoming one of the first developers to utilize Valve's Source engine. (Unfortunately, the vampires weren't nearly as draining as the bugs.)
