Recettear isn't that old. It was released in Japan a few years ago (2006, I think), but the English translation is fairly recent. If you want recent indie games, you can either go with Steam (usually cheaper) or the authors (DRM free).
Good Old Games sells what the name says - good old games. I think that the GoG team would agree that good old indie
games are definitely a possibility, but new, modern indie titles are not.
if you go buy original release of reccetear and not the englisg it does count as old by this websites definition as we have games from 2007 here
I'm not sure what you're trying to do here. It doesn't matter what I go by. If you're really convinced that Recettear is a good old game you should add it to the GoG Wishlist
But consider this:
* The English version of Recettear is only a couple of months old.
* It sells for $20
* It's easily available on other digital download sites like Steam
Good Old Games sells games that:
* Are older than a couple of months
* Can be sold for <$10 with the publisher's permission
* Often aren't so easy to find
Does Recettear really fit the GoG model?
GOG staff have explicitly stated that they're not interested in including indie games on GOG. Maybe if they did another digital distribution service. But they won't be on GOG any time soon.
There's the answer then. Games like Soldak's and Recettear are easily available through Steam and other services, and they all sell for twice ($20) what GoG sells games for anyway. As far as I can tell, they don't fit the GoG model.
