GOG.com helps you prepare for the end of the world by putting all of their holiday bundles on sale; more than 125 games for up to 75% off!

GOG.com, the digital distributor of games for PC and Mac, has just announced it's preparing for the inevitable End of The World, in true gamer fashion. Whether the Mayans were right and tomorrow spells the end of everything is anyone's guess, however GOG.com urges the gamers worldwide to remain calm and play games like there's no tomorrow. Just in case. The End of the World Sale has just started and will last for 24 hours, that is until Thursday December 20 at 14:59 GMT, which should give gamers some time to enjoy their games before the 21st arrives and a wave of fiery pudding engulfs the world.

More than 125 games are offered right now in 17 bundles. Titles in each bundle will be up to 75% off when you buy all games (or if you own some of them and complete the bundle), or up to 50% off individual games if you buy them separately. The incredible deals available on GOG.com include all Might and Magic Madness--all 16 games for $25.89, less than $12 for a colllection of Bullfrog Favorites (Theme Hospital, Dungeon Keeper, Syndicate and more), $9 for the complete Ultima Series. Telltale Adventures are actually being sold seperately from a bundle abd are offered 80% off for each title, which is as little as $3.99 for Wallace and Gromit's Great Adventure or $6.99 for Tales of Monkey Island.

GOG.com has also added two new games to its catalog: A New Beginning and Capsized. A New Beginning - Final Cut is an adventure masterpiece from the makers of The Whispered World and Edna & Harvey: The Breakout. More than 100 detailed, hand-painted backgrounds, 40 minutes of animated cutscenes, 52 voiced characters, and over 20 hours of gaming will be a real treat for all adventure fans. The game price is set to $9.99, however, the game is available at GOG.com right now 75% off when bought in the Daedalic Adventures Bundle along with the aforementioned games, Deponia, and The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav.

Capsized is a retro-inspired 2D platformer developed by Alientrap, in which you control an astronaut trying to get away from an alien planet. The game teems with alien life, and wonderful atmospheric design. The campaign mode, and four 'Arcade' modes offer enough entertainment for $9.99 value, but it's a real bargain when purchased 75% off in the Jumpin' Indie Action Bundle along with La Mulana, Mutant Mudds, Snapshot, and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, together for only $14.95.
