Well, Anachronox is now available on GOG.com for 5.99. I thought I'd make this thread for discussion.

Dude, YES!!!!  If my review is any indication, this is one of my favorite JRPGs.  When I bought a preowned copy back in '08, I applied the two official and two fanmade patches and it played like a dream.

This is one game I badly want a sequel for, but sadly it will never be.

Let's get a link in here too.

Seriously considering it, but I'll probably wait and just get Grimrock or something.

I would assume the official patches, yes.  When I picked up Septerra Core from GOG it was the patched version.

Anachronox is a classic.  I bought it on GOG the moment I heard about it.

I always wanted to play this game, it looks fantastic. And everyone always praises it. Nice to see Septrra Core represented in the thread.
