Upcoming one-time events:

Regularly scheduled events Statement Expected Wednesday has an additional update following yesterday's shutdown to the home of good old games. They add a little to our minimal understanding of the current state of the service, say they expect to make everyone's games available again on Thursday, and state they plan on making a more informative statement about what's happening on Wednesday. Here's word:

First of all, we apologize everyone for the whole situation and closing We do understand the timing for taking down the site caused confusion and many users didn't manage to download all their games. Unfortunately we had to close the service due to business and technical reasons.

At the same time we guarantee that every user who bought any game on will be able to download all their games with bonus materials, DRM-free and as many times as they need starting this Thursday.

The official statement from's management concerning the ongoing events is planned on Wednesday. If you want to receive further information about, please send an email to if you're a media representative or to if you're a user without a GOG account.

I'm going to be so gutted if this marks the end of the DRM-free catalogue on

GOG was the best thing to happen to online PC games distribution ever, and I would willingly see Steam and every other digital distributor die first.
