Looking back at 2017 on GOG.com

We made it! You made it! 2017 is almost over – and whatever your take on the world at large, only one thing can truly be said for certain: it's been a great year for all of us here at GOG.com – thank you for being a part of it!

Let's take a brief look back at the year 2017...





Over 2000 DRM-free games
Our catalog passed two thousand titles in 2017 – but if you know us, you know it's not just about the numbers. These are over two thousand unique experiences that we truly believe are worth playing!

Did somebody say good old games? Well, we brought back quite a few of them this year – the really tough ones and the ones we really missed – restored by our talented teams and friends across the net. There is the Jazz Jackrabbit series – CliffyB's gaming debut; SWAT 4 – happily no longer among PC Gamer's "15 great games you can't buy digitally"; The Suffering series – with scary monsters by Stan Winston Studios; the delicious Pizza Tycoon series; many long-lost classics Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom, Rise of the Dragon, Heart of China; [url=https://www.gog.com/game/titanic_adventure_out_of_time]Titanic: Adventure out of Time… and more!




But the good and old is only half the story. 2017 was an amazing year for gaming, with award winning and groundbreaking productions releasing DRM-free on GOG.com. If the indie revolution is behind us, then this is the renaissance!

2017 gave us Divinity: Original Sin 2 – PC Gamer's Game of the Year and this year's most popular game on GOG.com! Followed by Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice – Best Audio Design, Impact, and Best Performance at The Game Awards; the niche but loveable Piranha Bytes RPG; [url=https://www.gog.com/game/cuphead]Cuphead – winning Best Art Direction and Best Independent Game at The Game Awards; and so many others!

All in all, in 2017 alone we released nearly one quarter of our entire catalog – and it's an honor to work this closely with so many talented game developers and great publishers.





GOG Galaxy out of beta
In 2017 the GOG Galaxy client left behind its BETA tag – with a few great new features to boot! We added Universal Cloud Saves, technology which allows us to introduce Cloud Save support to classics and new games on GOG.com (now nearly 300 and counting). Plus an in-game overlay, a built-in FPS counter and screenshot tool, as well as an array of expanded settings allowing you to customize the client to your needs. Anyway, that's how we earned our sense of pride and accomplishment.





We are legion
We saved the best for last – and that's you lot. As we grow in size, the GOG word spreads farther and farther out! Tens of thousands of you have joined us this year across social media and our very own twitch.tv/GOGcom channel. That's over <span class="bold">240,000 following our Twitter shenanigans</span>, more than <span class="bold">340,000 of you with us on Facebook</span>.

<span class="bold">As for twitch.tv/GOGcom</span>, we can't thank our dedicated Stream Team enough for sharing our love for games seven days a week. In 2017 we reached 50k followers – oh, it just went up to 51k – and there have been over 214600 individuals watching us so far. If you combine all our 2017 streams, we streamed for 169 days and 15 hours (that's about 45% of the year!) and if you combine all the time people spent watching our channel in 2017, you get 38 years and 272 days!





Thank you so much for being with us in 2017 – we hope your 2018 is amazing, and we can't wait to show you what's in store for this year!

My wishlist grew by a lot despite spending more than ever on games here. So yea, it was a good year.
And here I was hoping for a last release this year but alright, leave it for January.

Thanks for this year of great releases!
Seems really good indeed. I wanna see JMich's statistics on the year. A quarter of the catalog released during 2017? Whoa, that's pretty impressive.

Here's to a 2018 filled with great games and completely devoid of the DRM cancer. Cheers, mates!

On a funnier note, seems that not even elcook (?) is able to escape the forum bug that sprouts when you have several links in the same line. :)

Edit: Konrad, actually,

Truly impressive achievements. I love your dedication and transparency. Long live DRM-freedom!

I wish the whole GOG team all the best in 2018 - let it be The Year of GOG!
Good job!
Looking forward more top quality releases in 2018!
Keep up the good work. Happy new years!
Happy New Year, GOG!

GOG > Steam
For me this has been a great year for me such games as Fallout New Vegas, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Imperium Galactica 2, Dragon Dogma.Saints Row 4,Hellblade, Quake 4, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 , Divinity Original Sin 2 and Spellforce 3.

There also been a number of day 1 releases as well thanks to the likes to THQNordic which is also great.

In the year where AAA games have been to be honest huge letdowns (looking at you Mass Effect) I have only bought 1 Origin game, 2 Steam games but 89 games on gog.

Cant wait to see what happens in 2018 the 10th year of gog :)

Truly a helluva year for GOG, and one thing that wasn't mentioned in the OP is the forum members GOG flew in to meet and talk with. That was pretty much the highlight of my gaming year and I have to say once again how impressed I am at the lengths GOG will go to increase my backlog!

Happy New Year all you GOGlodytes, GOGgers, and GOG-folk.
