    I also have some Steam keys for the four-part Sorcery! series (PC/Mac), adapted from the best-selling gamebook series by Steve Jackson, free to anyone who would like them. There's no catch, I just have a lot of games and wanted to share.

    Either reply here or PM me if you would like these, and I'll send you the keys. If you're unfamiliar with Steam/how to activate keys, please let me know, I'm happy to help.

    I have a few more Steam keys for some other games which I'll post here as well, but I need to check which ones haven't been given away or used yet.

    Description taken from the Steam store pages:

    Parts 1 and 2: Sorcery! Parts 1 and 2 on Steam
    An epic adventure in a land of monsters, traps and magic. Journey across the deadly Shamutanti Hills and through the Cityport of Kharé, home to thieves, corrupt nobles and deadly mutants, as you attempt to recover the Crown of Kings. Armed with your sword, and over fifty spells with weird and wonderful effects, embark on a journey of a thousand choices where every one is remembered and will change your story. This is Parts 1 and 2 of a four-part series.

    Part 3: Sorcery! Part 3 on Steam
    An open-world narrative adventure through a cursed wilderness of monsters, traps and magic. Hunt down the Seven Serpents, cast powerful spells that shape the story, and explore everywhere. Begin your journey here, or continue your story from Parts 1 & 2.

    Part 4: Sorcery! Part 4 on Steam
    An open-world narrative adventure into a cursed Citadel of monsters, traps and magic. Fight weird creatures, cast powerful spells that shape the story, cheat death, and explore everywhere. Begin your journey here, or conclude your adventure from Part 3.

    This one is permafree but adding it here as it's very useful.

    Virtual Cottage on Steam

    I've been using it since last autumn and really like it. There are rain sounds and lofi music which can be toggled on and off, plus a cute little cat! E:hearteyecat:

    Same here. It looks deliciously creepy :D Another game came out a few years after this one, set in the same universe, called Sunless Skies (not sure if it's a direct sequel though).

    Ok, I'm Interested in the Sorcery Books.

    I had two of the four original books from when they came out originally, so I'm curious to see what they have done with them.
