GOG is hosting a Mac sale today, which includes The Witcher Enhanced Edition, Crusader: No Remorse, Theme Hospital, Little Big Adventure, Postal Classic and Uncut, and Simcity 2000 for half off.

There are eight free games available for Mac users to test out the system, including Beneath a Steel Sky, Tyrian 2000, Ultima 4 and Warsaw.

Thanks for not making liars out of us, GOG.
