GOG is "good old games", though. :P

Desktop Dungeons isn't that old and certainly not a classic at any rate :P

Well, it's sort of two years old, and you've been able to support yourselves by pre-orders, and bunches and bunches of people play it and have been playing it for a while. It's not VERY old, but it's had a strange thing happen to it - it became a classic even though it hasn't had a "release" yet ^^

And there's long lets play series of people playing its alpha and beta builds :lol:

It's kind of like there being a Dota 2 without there being a Dota 1 :D

Speaking about GOG.com again - this service changed his profile few months ago. Currently, not only "Good Old Games" are sold, but also newer games (like Assassin's Creed or Alan Wake) and even new indie games (like Botanicula or Legend of Grimrock). Currently, One indie game is available for pre-order (Retro City Rampage). Before that, the service made an experiment by selling The Witcher 2 as a first new game.

These are the currect price tags (excluding free games, promos and special price for The Witcher 2) - $5,99, $9,99, $14,99 and $19,99. Last two were introduced with new site's profile.

I'm not working for GOG.com, but that's my favourite digital distribution service of PC games. :)

Yeah, it's really the place to go if you want to have an DRM free alternative to steam, which also should adress more customers. I would propably be spending alot of money there if it wasn't for the original disc versions of certain games in my shelf.

Yeah, same here. Most of the GoG catalogue that interests me, I already own.

Same here. Most of the catalogue are, however, megaclassiscs. DD should fit right in :)

I reckon quite a few people have that same feeling. It's why I eventually lost touch with GoG: I just *have* most of the stuff I want. Though occasional otherwise-hard-to-get offerings like Planescape are AWESOME.

Temple of Elemental evil is another rough diamond that's sort of hard to find, and being able to legaly obtain Alpha Centauri (angelic trumpet chorus) is incredible.

Planescape needs no mention, the fact that it wasn't a comercial sucess sayes a lot about mankind -.-'
