Something Up at GOG.com

Well well well, what do we have here? It seems that the monks at the GOG.com castle are up to no good again. It seems that the police have caught up to GOG.com’s no-DRM policy and have made a page a crime scene. That, or it is really official businessas the post explains.

Something’s happening here on GOG.com, as you can see. Very official. Anyone caught violating the police line will be shot on sight. Unfortunately, we can’t comment on what’s going on behind that police line, and we certainly can’t encourage you to come back here and check the site over the weekend to see if clues have been revealed as to what it is.

Conjectures and theories lead us to many conclusions. One of the most formidable ones are that this could be the release of the really old games or interactive fiction games as they were called such as the text based adventure Zork. Probably this will also result in other Infocom classics such as Phobos or Deadline.

In other words, stellar. I have never played a proper text based adventure since Zork, which left a lasting [bad] memory of the Grue. What is a Grue, you ask?

> what is a grue?
The grue is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. Its favorite diet is adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

In any case, we’ll keep this post updated
