GOG.com To Release Classic Atari Games on its Portal

GOG.com has been featured quite prominently around this site and with good reason. Good Old Games, the brainchild of CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski, sells DRM-free classics of yesteryear at two price brackets – $5.99 and $9.99 (or sometimes free). It also has a thriving community that is dedicated to the games it plays and is not concerned with petty fanboy disputes (mostly).

GOG.com has been adding more and more publishers since its inception with Majesco, Ubisoft and Activision joining the ranks of GOG.com. Now Atari has signed a deal with the service and will be entering the family in April. According to the site’s twitter feed, there will possibly be 10 games from Atari adorning the catalog of GOG.com.

There were the necessary floating teasers that are always followed by something really big where it concerns GOG.com (duh). Well, frankly speaking, I did not expect it to be this big. I do not know how I am going to survive April with so much of temptation on GOG.com! To save money for birthday or not. How about one of you guys gifting me Icewind Dale (if it is one of the 10 games) for my birthday?
