If you've been checking out the news on gaming sites around the 'Net, you've very possibly heard that GOG has announced some exciting news about our plan for 2012 and beyond.

In particular, there are three main elements that make up our announced path for the next few years: adding newer games to the catalog, focusing on continuing our impressive growth, and bringing exclusive game releases to GOG.com. There are a few common questions we've seen about this, so before we link you to some of these discussions online, we thought we'd create a quick FAQ for you.

Q: Oh no! GOG.com is never going to sell another classic PC game again and my favorite game never made it here!

A: Don't worry, GOG.com will continue to release classic PC games. We are, however, looking to expand the availability window of games on GOG, so we won't focus only on PC classics anymore.

Q: Isn't your name Good Old Games? It seems kind of silly to sell new games on an old gaming website.

A: We've always been about our core values: DRM-free games, flat prices worldwide, and extra goodies included in our releases. So don't think about us as "Good Old Games"; think of us as "GOG.com", and perhaps you can work your way around that objection. ;)

Q: I see your terrible plot! When you guys start selling games with DRM, I will leave the Internets in disgust and never return.

A: Don't worry: we're devoted to those three core values that we mentioned above, and we know that if we ever abandoned them we'd quickly become just another digital distributor. Our goal is to become the best alternative digital distributor out there: the guys who do it differently, who respect their customers, and who can help change what the industry is doing as a result.


If you have any other pressing questions about our future plans, feel free to ask them in the forum and we'll do our best to answer as many as we can. Keep in mind that we can't always answer questions you ask for a variety of reasons, so apologies in advance if you happen to ask one of those kinds of questions.

GameRager: Try voting here until they update that wishlist later this year, and also post your choices here. Also Welcome aboard. :)

Spongeroberto: What do you mean 'later this year'? Is there a set time when they check the wishlist?
They said they might update it with a new one later this year. The current one is an old out of date one.
Hello, is there anychance to get REALLY classic game like Dungeon Master and Chaos Strike Back , possibly even Dungeon Master 2 in gog as I do have originals but haven't able to play em for a while regardless that trying to use dos / Win XP enviroment it turns out it's just won't work.
Umm..yeah...well...System shock 2?!?!
I also advocate for GOG to acquire the rights to provide System Shock 2.
so exactly WHEN are we going to start seeing new titles here on GOG?

And don't you dare say "Gothic 3 forsaken gods" because GOG really needs to kickstart all of this with a bang

What do you mean by "new titles"? Deus Ex GOTY is a game that many GOG patrons have been begging to be released for a long time. While I am not a fan of the Hitman series, I think Deus Ex and Hitman are strong titles to "kickstart" the new relationship between GOG and Square Enix.

If you disagree, I am curious to know why?

He meant new as in age of the game since being created......GOG said they are going to be releasing some newer games this year. I guess he's asking about that. :)

Cool! it is really as it seems? I can expect classics from other platforms packaged with emulators? Just like DOS games and DOSBox right now? For example we can get Disgaea with PCSX2 already configured? Or classics with Mame*?

*there are probably license issues, but it is just to got the point.
I hope GOG is going to release Harpoon 3 Advanced Naval Warfare and Jane's Fleet Command in 2012 that compatible with windows 7 and modern VGA (Jane's Fleet Command's problem).
Attachments:
I have no problem with this, I just hope it doesn't (significantly) slow down work of making older games Windows 7 compatible. I think this is pretty damn important I think, not just in commercial terms but in bringing older games to people who otherwise wouldn't play them because 1: Never heard of them, or 2: Not compatible with modern Windows versions, and Dosbox is too complicated.
I hope they find solution with Optimus Nexus copyright and got Pył on GOG.
Maybe it can be much easier than get System Shock 2,,, or Neverhood.
Age of empires 2 or gtfo.

One game I need, either here or steam.

WHO'S GONNA DO IT FIRST.
Hello. I've just came to ask if there are any chances of 2 games appearing at GOG.com. The games are:

Aliens vs Predator 2 (released by Monolith in 2001 - the best AvP game EVER)
Heavy Metal FAKK 2

These two are classics and I think, that many people would buy them.

And I would really like to know when the first good new games are coming to goodoldgames.com? They were signaled to come somewhere in 2012 and waiting is really hard.
