Tropico 3 is not a new game by any means but not having to pay for it is a nice 'gift' for the week, thanks to the Humble Store.

The store recently had an End of Summer Sale and is now running an End of Summer Sale Encore. To entice you to stick around the store, it's giving away Tropico 3 for free and even allows you to gift copies of the game to friends.

Hurry, though. The giveaway is only valid today and will end in less than 24 hours from writing.

More games to play, hurrah

You have to give the Humble Store kudos for making the game redemption process painless. Fill in your email into the box provided, enter the CAPTCHA and in less than a minute the link to redeem the game will arrive.

Once the email arrives, you will be reminded that you will need to redeem the game code by Oct 6, 2014, 10am PST.

The game will be yours for life once redeemed but the key will only be available for a short time so once you get the game, don't take too long to claim it.

Is it worth spending your hard-earned dosh there? If you're looking for deep discounts on some new-ish and popular titles, you might just appreciate what's on offer today. Child of Light is going for US$7.49, Company of Heroes 2 is US$9.99 and its expansion is US$6.66. Also for Batman fans, get the Game of the Year edition of Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Asylum for just US$4.99 each.

Besides the great discounts, take comfort in knowing that 10 per cent of proceeds will go to supporting charity. Gaming never felt so good.
