• Good Old Games Closed Down?

        Is the beloved service gone for good?

        The following message went up on gog.com a few hours ago:

        Dear GOG users,

        We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is. We've debated on it for quite some time and, unfortunately, we've decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form.

        We're very grateful for all support we've received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming.

        This doesn't mean the idea behind GOG.com is gone forever. We're closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await.

        On a technical note, this week we'll put in place a solution to allow everyone to re-download their games. Stay tuned to this page and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.

        All the best,
        GOG.com Team

        There are some rumblings that this is a public relations ploy en route to introducing a new, improved GOG, but no other details have been made available at this time.

        GOG has made a name for itself distributing classic PC games optimized for play on today's computers. It's definitely a favorite among some in the community here.
