We are slightly adjusting local pricing due to changes in currency exchange rates.

Due to recent significant changes in currency conversion rates, we need to re-evaluate and update the local price values for the products on GOG.com. When preparing for the launch of our local currency payment options we've monitored the conversion rates for 18 months, looking at the average, and rounding it to the closest 0.09. That's how we came up with - for example - the 4.49€ equivalent for the $5.99 price-tag (with 4.51€ being the average converted price out of the previous 18 months). With fairness and clarity in mind, we decided to stick to the prices calculated this way, and only update them if a really considerable change in currency exchange rates would occur.

Unfortunately, this happened much sooner than anyone would expect. There are evident changes in the conversion rates for almost all currencies used on GOG.com. Therefore, we are forced to adjust some of the local-currency prices of the GOG.com catalog items.The prices are changing only by a small margin that allows us to compensate for the recent shifts in currency exchange rates. Here's a representative example of the pricing changes:

For $9,99 games:
- the EUR price was: 7,49; is: 7,99
- the GBP price was: 5,99; is: 6,19
- the AUD price was: 10,89; is: 11,49
- the RUB price was: 359; is: 389

The changes will come into effect on Wednesday, October 1 at 12:00PM GMT. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may be causing you. Please remember that you have the option to switch your preferred currency back to USD in the site's footer.

We will continue to monitor the exchange rates and apply further updates. Hopefully, we'll see the rates reverting to their more beneficial state soon, so that the next small price update can be in everyone's favor. We will communicate any future adjustments in the forum thread for this topic, so please follow it if you're interested in the future development for local prices.
Oh no, games got more expensive for Canadians. Expect at least different 25 threads demanding the same prices as Steam. ;)

mrkgnao: Should be CAD, I believe.
Fixed! Thank you. :)
There was a silent update to exchange rates.
According to the last update a $9.99 game should cost 8.79 euros. But if you check a (non-regional priced) $9.99 game like Planescape: Torment it costs 9.09 euros.

After the Brexit the EUR/USD went down to 1.11 so probably GOG had to adjust.

I noticed that when i posted on reddit Balrum deal, initial price was 7.99 euros, 20 minutes later they changed to 8.19 euros.

You're right.
This adjustment was anticipated, but I'd like to point out that it has been applied already.

It seem that Balrum was the game we all noticed this update.

You guys noticed already, but there was indeed an update! Here are the new rates:

5,99USD = 5,49EUR = 4,49GBP = 8,09AUD = 399 RUB = 24,39PLN = 51,10SEK = 51,20NOK = 40,40DKK = 5,89CHF = 7,89CAD
           
9,99USD = 9,09EUR = 7,59 GBP = 13,59 AUD = 659RUB = 40,29PLN = 85,30SEK = 85,40NOK = 67,40DKK = 9,79CHF = 13,09CAD

14,99USD = 13,59EUR = 11,29GBP = 20,29AUD = 979RUB = 60,39PLN = 128SEK = 128,20NOK = 101,10DKK = 14,69CHF = 19,59 CAD

Is this related to FX rates or local pricing?
I see both stores' price as €12.99, so either a weird location identifier, or maybe a wrong currency for one of those. MaGog should have the proper price for Romania, let me check.

Edit: [url=http://www.an-ovel.com/cgi-bin/magog.cgi?ver=743&scp=gdspuio&dsp=ipD&ord=&flt=tcs~sheltered~&opt=n&myf=ThuJun301226312016_Rx4SV6yjCjksC]MaGog[/url] does report the game as costing $19.99 in EU Eastern Europe, Rest of Europe and Most of the World. There doesn't appear to be any €12.99 price though, so no idea about that.
