My System Specs

Default GamersGate Penumbra Collection (trilogy) $4.99 / $5.72 CDN

GamersGate is offering the Penumbra Collection (trilogy) for $4.99 US / $5.72 CDN this weekend only.
Noticed this on slashdot and downloaded it right away (1.1gb).
Supposed to be a good trilogy, scary FPS. Will try it tonight.

Played from a first person perspective and powered by a 3D engine utilising cutting edge technology, Penumbra is a true advancement to the adventure genre. The unique physics system allows for true environmental interaction: The player can open drawers, pull levers, pick up objects and manipulate those objects in 3D space - all using natural mouse movements, creating a highly interactive and immersive game world.
The Penumbra series' central character, Philip, is realistically vulnerable, while enemies are fierce and intelligent. Any object can be picked up and thrown in defence, but the end result might only be to buy some time, or more likely, anger enemies further. Avoiding, outwitting and sneaking past enemies entirely provide the best chance of survival.
Penumbra will put players on edge like never before as they explore bizarre and mysterious environments, the unknown awaiting them behind every corner. The world is detailed both in terms of graphical fidelity and narrative character - The Penumbra Series is a horrific experience that will grip players from its opening thrills to it chilling denouement.
Thrilling blend of puzzles and action
State of the art interaction system
Clever physics puzzles with multiple solutions
A creepy and disturbing ambient atmosphere
Immersive and thought-provoking story line
