Syberia II Is "On The House"

I’m apparently about a month late on this one, but it’s better than never for those who, like me, missed the news the first time around. Syberia II is a point-and-click adventure title from 2004 and it is currently “On The House” through EA’s Origin service. These promotions would be the same as if EA had a timed, 100%-off sale: claim it before it’s over and it’s yours for free, permanently.

It might not be around for long, though. I’m guessing this deal is to promote the upcoming Syberia III, which was originally announced in 2009 and should launch in about a week or two (depending on your region). If this sort of game interests you in any way, and especially if you have an active Origin account, then it’s a good idea to add Syberia II to your games library, even if you don’t plan on installing it right away.

Syberia is a good series. It's also available on Steam but I'd recommend it from GOG.com if you still believe that you should be able to control software you pay for.

I'm definitely a fan of DRM-free.

Old news. I appreciate you letting everyone know, but maybe try to deliver information like this when it's less likely to be obsolete in the near future.

On the house title is now theme hospital. Still a hilarious game to play through.

It's still Syberia II, but it's for North America and Europe. Australia, Brazil, South Africa, and others have Theme Hospital. But, yeah, it might not last too much longer.
