To celebrate the long days, barbeques and t-shirt weather, GOG.com is launching a summer promotion entitled Battle of the Games.

The website formerly known as Good Old Games is offering visitors to the website the opportunity to pick their favourite between two different games, with the winner getting a larger discount for customers the next day.

From June 19th games have been battling it out for the biggest savings, and will continue to do so with a new pairing every day until July 5th. The winner gets a 60 per cent cut to its price, while the runner-up just gets 40 per cent.

"Even though the final line-up remains a mystery and new pair of games will be revealed every day, GOG.com users can expect dozens of highest quality DRM-free titles, including Psychonauts, The Witcher, and Broken Sword: Director’s Cut, duelling for fame and discounts until the early days of July," said a statement by GOG.com.

Today's high-flying competition sees two dogfight simulators take on each other. Gamers can pick between B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th and Red Baron Pack.

B-17 Flying Fortress tests the fortitude of gamers in the 25 historically accurate World War II scenarios, playing as one of ten crew members in the eponymous aircraft, including pilot, navigator, bombardier and even radio operator.

In Red Baron Pack, gamers get three classic historical combat simulators: Red Baron, Bed Baron: Mission Builder and Red Baron 3D, believed to be one of the best World War I dogfight video games. Players can take on the role of either a British, German or French pilot to experience the thrill of flying some of the earliest fighter planes.

Currently the Red Baron Pack is winning with more than 3,500 votes, around 500 votes ahead of B-17 Flying Fortress.

Yesterday's winner was the role playing game Divine Divinity, which beat off stiff competition from Sacred Gold.

In another promotion, GOG.com has made Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire and Ultima Worlds: Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams available free of charge, courtesy of Electronic Arts.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801393564-ADNFCR
