Funnily enough, it appears Duke is still being sold on Zoom - https://www.zoom-platform.com/#store-duke-nukem-3d-atomic-edition. Maybe somebody forgot to send them a memo? :P

And Overlord 2 is sold there, but not on GOG yet. Strange because you'd think Codemasters would get more sales here.

That phrase always bothered me. :P

-They're first.
-No they're second.
-So then who's first?
-No one.
-So they're first?
-No, they're second.
-What happened to first?
-It's gone.
-Why?
-Don't know.
-But where did it go?
-Can't say.
-Is it gone for good?
-Who knows?

The Olympics start next week. Imagine if all the winners just got Silver medals. :P

Hmmm, here I was expecting tinfoil hats and salty tears. I even brought Max.

Oh well, add Abandonia to the list. It's not all DRM free, but they've got quite a few.

When I last checked, GOG was the only DRM-free digital distributor for PC. And we still release DRM-free games on a (almost) daily basis. And if you don't want to use GOG Galaxy, you don't have to. Just sayin'.

Do Abandonia sell games?
It looks not like a store.

They don't sell, but they certainly do distribute. They only have abandoned titles, so dosbox bait for the most part. It's where old timers got the good old games before GOG started selling them. Your call if that fits your list.
square enix gave a drm-free hitman. although there was no redownload from the account. you had to access it via your email. plus i never actually installed it since i own it here. so can't verify their terminology. also, i believe uplay gave an old rainbow six retail through their platform. which turned out to be drm-free. i can't verify this because it has been some time.
