Get Your DRM-Free Classic Games on Good Old Games Now

Gaming Today

Fallout. Descent. Freespace. They can now be yours for a modest sum — without a lick of DRM — thanks to Good Old Games, which has just announced that it’s opened its beta to the public. The site is run by CD Projekt, the same company responsible for the excellent RPG The Witcher, and offers classic PC games for either $5.99 or $9.99 along with extras like wallpapers, artwork, soundtracks, and more.

The beta’s catalog will soon grow to over 50 games, as two new companies — Strategy First and Pluto 13 — join Codemasters and Interplay, who together accounted for the current library of games. That means you’ll soon be able to buy Gothic and Sacred Gold from GOG.

If you’re interested in learning more, Jeff Green interviewed the site’s managing director, Adam Oldakowski, some time back, and that should give you a pretty good indication of what to expect. I’ve been using the site since September and it really is just as awesome as you hope.

It’s people like you that will cause awesome projects like this fall through. Thanks for being selfish and causing all of these DRMs to be created.

I can’t believe they have Redneck Rampage! That game was so entertaining.

Personally I think some action should be taken towards. Buddy “The Dong” Love. for constantly trolling, being a and his overall tom foolery. OH MY GAWD if he sees this message and replies to me in any way, it just proves I’m god.
