Good afternoon furloughed government employees, I've got some good news for you! Good Old Games (GOG) the online retailer specializing in classic games is offering up free games to out-of-work government employees and deep discounts for the rest of us to learn about how governments really work. "Showing you how government works, in case yours doesn't!"

Gamers can pick up classic government-themed games for 50-percent off. Titles like Capitalism 2 and Tropico Reloaded are at deep discounts for the next 24-hours. Also included is Theme Hospital, referring to healthcare and Redneck Rampage, we guess that's referring to the one of the parties, we'll let you decide.

GOG is also giving away free games to anyone out-of-work from the government shutdown:

"We would like to express our condolences to everyone who's been furloughed by the shutdown." GOG says in a statement. "More than that, actually, we'd like to offer you the games pack of our special Shutdown Promo for free. Send an email to thanksobama@gog.com with your picture holding the official furlough letter you received, before Friday 11 October 2013 at 12:00 EDT and we'll give you The Guild: Gold Edition, Capitalism, Capitalism 2, Tropico: Gold Edition, Alpha Centauri + Alien Crossfire, Theme Hospital, and Redneck Rampage free."
