We were big fans of Good Old Games’ online catalogue, which offered lots of classic, DRM-free PC games at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, the distributer has just shut down their site at www.gog.com and has announced that the company will be closing shop, citing business and technical reasons.

In an official statement on the otherwise empty GOG website, the GOG team thanks users, saying “We're very grateful for all support we've received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming.”
In a recent update posted today, the GOG team cites “business and technical reasons” to explain why they’ve had to pull down the site, but guarantees that anyone who bought a game on GOG.com will be able to download all their games with bonus materials, DRM-free as many times as they need to starting this Thursday, September 23.
GOG.com customers can follow the GOG team for further updates on their Twitter account and Facebook page.
