[adsense250itp]The infamous game Harvester has been added to the GOG.com catalog. The horror-based FMV game is available optimized for modern operating systems and free of DRM at a price of $5.99.
The game features a number of extras, including the game’s soundtrack, a behind-the-scenes video, a poster and a magazine article about the game’s early build.
Developed by DigiFX Interactive and published in America by Merit Studios, Harvester is a point-and-click adventure game with combat elements that was originally released for DOS.
Players control Steve, an amnesiac who is trapped in the bizarre town of Harvest, which is run by a mysterious group called the Order of the Harvest. Tasked with gaining admittance to the lodge, Steve must embark on a blood-filled trek through the town all the way to the inner sanctum of the Lodge.
Harvester was notorious for its high level of violence as well as its sexual and disturbing content. The game, first announced in 1994, was one of the major influences on the creation of the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
Despite its content, the game had mixed reviews and disappointing sales. The title’s since become a cult favorite among gamers for its extreme violence, over-the-top story and unique game concepts.
