New features, local currency option, new payment methods, store credit, and an updated look for!

For almost six years now we strive to bring you not only the best in DRM-Free gaming, but also to give you the greatest experience possible. To that end we're always looking for ways to improve our site and service. Today, we're rolling out a vastly updated version of our store with an improved interface, sleek new look, and lots of handy new features. Let's take a quick tour, shall we?

Video: Welcome to the fresher, better!

First of all we are giving you more DRM-free content: movies! We are starting with 20 documentaries about internet and gaming culture but we aim high! You can find more on this in the appropriate newspost, so let's focus on the other features we're rolling out.

We wanted to give you more choice as to how you pay for things on Now it's up to you if you want to pay in US Dollars, or in the currency primarily used in your country, whether it's the Euro, Pounds Sterling, Australian Dollars, or Russian Roubles. That's four new currencies supported by for your convenience. Still - the choice is yours, so if you want to stick to US dollars, just switch to it - you find this option at the bottom of each page. To make buying things at an even more flexible process, we're introducing some new payment methods: Sofort, Giropay, Webmoney, and Yandex.

All this also means that users for whom the local currency pricing has been enabled will have an option to select one of two different prices for each game in our catalog. Of course, we stand by the simple truth that $1 does not equal 1€, so a game with a $5.99 price tag will cost 4.49 Euro, 3.69 British Pounds, 6.49 Australian Dollars, and 219 Roubles respectively. $9.99 translates to 7.49 Euro, 5.99 Pounds Sterling, 10.89 Australian Dollars, and 359 Roubles. In a perfect world we would apply the same method of pricing to all of the games we offer. However, things are a little bit more complicated, and there are some games in our catalog that follow a different region-based pricing scheme. However, we wouldn't be if we didn't find a way to make right by the users who end up paying relatively more for such titles. Here's where the Fair Price Package comes in!

The Fair Price Package applies to all of the titles which we couldn't include in our standard pricing scheme. If you end up paying more for a game than its standard US Dollar price, we'll refund you the difference out of our own pocket. The refunded value will be added to your account in Store Credit in the currency of your purchase. That's right, no more gift codes, you'll be getting Store Credit that you can use to purchase anything on or partially pay for an item that's more expensive. More choice, ease of use, and less limitations!

Finally, the store has gotten itself a substantial visual revamp. We went for a fresh, mobile-friendly design that should make it even easier to find the games you want, notice the hot promos, and see what's new. The main page, catalog view, product pages, and checkout have been updated and also lay the groundwork for even more overhaul, coming within the next few months together with many of the GOG Galaxy features. We hope you like it!

PS. Unfortunately, we need to drop some titles from our classic catalog. In such cases, we always do our best to give you an advance warning and a last chance to purchase such games - preferably with a considerable discount. Check this news post to find out which titles are being removed from our catalog, when will it happen, and what parting discounts for them do we currently offer.

It's also quite irritating how I have to scroll down to get the headlines list. Put them up where the giant image is wasting space scrolling through [some of] them automatically.
Mullon: I hope whoever came up with that terrible new logo was fired.
I'd settle for a kick in the ass and making them revert to the old one. Seriously, stripping most of the old aesthetics does not mean better.

As for sleeker, faster, better? Everything's slower and more awkward. I'd revert to the old one in a sec if given the chance.

1) The grey! The greeeey! Honestly a little depressing...
2) Owned games are no longer flagged as such
3) Logged-in status is no longer obvious.

Otherwise, pretty happy with the balance of the changes...
for people who want the old site back - I made a request for it you can find it on this link

Currency choice doesn't work for me. Can only choose USD, and I'm in EURO country.

About the new site layout: I'm bothered a bit by the new thumbnail system.
Before, I could click on one thumbnail, and then just click,click,click on the big image to go through the screenshots.
Now, I need to click on every individual thumbnail, and also use side scrolling to move over several sections of thumbnails.

Compared to before, this is crippling.
Since the website is now gray my linux penquin decided to read 50 Shades of Gray :)

Also I just saw that gog sports 825 games - so where are the forty games that were released from yesterday till today :) lol You need to fix that number.

I like it to be honest. Don't really see any problems on my 23 inch monitor.
Is it possible to still view all time bestellers?
Ordering by besetlling now apparently shows only recent bestsellers. Either it rr many games quickly rose in the ranking.
I think that someone at GoG must have been a huge fan of the poet guard's poem in Fable 1. :P

It's too bad you didn't make these changes on April 1st. Then there would at least be the possibility that it was all an elaborate joke. Sadly that seems not to be the case and as a result GOG will now get a lot less attention from me. I really miss the vibrant look the site used to have, as well as the functionality and ease of use features which are now stripped out. There were so many useful visual cues to tell you about things that now seem to be gone. It is insulting to force desktop users to suffer the restrictions of a mobile interface. It appears as though much of the functionality which used AJAX to fetch data was removed to make things faster for mobile.... why is there such a catering to mobile? I would never want to look at a site like this on mobile. You would have to be nuts to think desktop users with large monitors will think the stripped down and depressing look is going to be appreciated by anyone not on a mobile device... the grey is sooo depressing. Oh well. If GOG actually cares in the least about their users they will revert back and give a choice. The horrible new look, layout, and decreased ease of use just turns me right off and I will not visit the site with nearly the frequency I used to (daily). GOG may have bitten off more than they can chew and pissed off far more people than they pleased. Sadly I am to be counted in the former category.

On a tangential note - DRM free is nice but I like that Steam just autopatches your games with fixes and new content so I can live with the Steam client. Plus I like the community, trading cards, and achievements.

Bottom line - you need to bring back the old site for desktop users and offer the new crippled, ugly version for mobile users. Nuff said.
Well said...every word is soooooo true. This is "high-rated" by many of us and I also give it a HUGE AMEN

1. Grey sucks. Really.

2. Unredeemed Codes are gone. > Now they got back.

3. Whishlist is missing Prices.

4. Site is no longer viewable with Firefox 3.

5. Why are the Forum Posts not showing Date+Time of their creation?

6. Why says the Forum i'm from 2013?
