The sale looks pretty weak so far.
I also wonder about no news. Maybe more will come but I don't expect much.

I'm pretty sure there'll be a couple surprises during the sale, but it started off somewhat weak I agree.

Maybe there'll be a second wave of new games in an hour? :)
I'm sure some surprises will come along during the sale, but if GOG have something big and/or cool to release, why not doing it in the first day of sale? It would create a much more big of an impact. After all, first impressions still count a lot.

Now, it seems that there's this feeling of underwhelming across the users that post on the forums. Don't really understand this decision of not going with a bang on the first day. You did it in past sales of previous years. Not continuing the trend is a mistake imo.

Edit: fix typos

For sure. Personally, I think there's been a hiccup, I mean there still isn't a news post about the sale. Maybe something went wrong and they're trying to fix it.

I think that as well. GOG doesn't work as properly since last year with the job cuts and technical problems can happen all the time.
Last year they dropped Yakuza on the second week.

I have to agree with this, there's no reason not to start the sale with one big, fat release, you're sabotaging the impact if you really have something good coming up "soon"
If there's more than one game/series prepared then sure, leave one for the next week, but a big sale needs a big kick off
I didn't expect a banger release right away. Because it takes some time for people to actually notice that the GOG's Summer Sale has started. The majority of customers don't regularly check forum, newsletters, twitter etc.
Same with freebies/ giveaways. Start too early an they are expired before most people even realize that there is something special to watch out for.

This is pure speculation, but I would not be surprised if this happened at some point after the Steam summer sale starts so that publishers who want their games to be on sale on all storefronts simultaneously get their wish.
I can only assume they're saving some things for the last week
