Update on the GOG.com Situation
By on September 21st, 2010

Well, it seems that our initial reactions (as well as most of the internets’) regarding GOG.com’s sad demisewere greatly exaggerated. Apparently, GOG.com isn’t completely dead. It’s just taking a new avatar and (hopefully, hopefully) still retaining its DRM-free nature.

UPDATE 21.09.2010

Thanks for being with us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDRvuKjissQ


UPDATE 20.09.2010
First of all, we apologize everyone for the whole situation and closing GOG.com. 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 GOG.com 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 GOG.com’s management concerning the ongoing events is planned on Wednesday. If you want to receive further information about GOG.com, please send an email to update_media@gog.com if you’re a media representative or to update_users@gog.com if you’re a user without a GOG account.

If you have a GOG.com account you’ll be informed about all the news concerning GOG.com.

Watch that teaser of the new GOG.com and then view this thread for clarifications. Apparently lots of new things are in store.

If you guys at CD Projekt are reading this: thanks for screwing with us. Can we get back GOG.com now?
