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.

Colours look drab... I miss the old logo :(

Doesn't say what I already own on a gamecard or the front page - that sucks.

Lost Torchlight, Omerta and multiple Witcher 1 codes that had no indication they would be removed... these were all my freebie codes but the recent gift I bought for someone is still showing correctly as sent but unredeemed.

Movies - meh don't really have any inclination for the stuff shown... hope it doesn't detract from the core business of gaming.


Love the fact there's store credit now instead of the previous voucher system

I cant say im a fan of the new design. I don't know why I just don't like it. I myself don't see any use for movies but at least it may draw some more people in. what I really cant stand though is the loss of so many games. some of them released not all that long ago and I imagine should be under contract still which begs the question why are they leaving. I heard some say fair pricing is the reason but it seems a bad excuse to me. Nordic has been here a long time and im pretty sure has games on other sites that support fair pricing (shinyloot is one example I believe). and regardless of fair pricing some of these games should still be under contract and if that's the case they should not be able to leave unless both parties allow it which again does not sound like a fair pricing issue.
To get something positive in here as well: I like the new design ;)

Design is worse. I get that idea of simplifying it but this isn't good change. Another thing - it doesn't show if I already own the game, which makes it difficult to browse games as I don't quite remember every title I have.

Sorry folks, not every change is for good, and it gets only worse if you're taking away functionality.
Drop down menus are disappearing under the bottom of the site when you are adding a game/feature/movie request.

ambient_orange: 1. gog logo is now stupid grey!
2. i cant see my icon on main navigation
3. in games personal page i dont see if i own that game
4. game photo galeries dont exist. They open in new window like in 2000..
5. responsive design is stupid, becauce it should show a normal website at 1000px width!!
People who dont use 2 or 3 monitors likes to reduce the width of browser "splitting" monitor in two. Thus providing more usability.
6. i dont want to waste more time right now on writing 5-10 more annoying things :|
1. Agreed, I liked it better before.
2. What icon?
3. Probably just a bug (it has happened before).
4. You are lucky - nothing happens when I click the images.
5. It looks okay at 1000px, but is problematic when screen x resoultion < 800px.
Heh, I also noticed that 1 game (Divine divinity) is missing from my library. Not good GOG, not good. :(
Wow, the new muted logo pretty much sums up my feelings about GOG lately.

What a shame.

*Sigh* Flat design got GOG too... Where is all colors ? Seriously do you think somebody will remember this faceless grey icon of GOG ? Search implementation for alone page is horrible, no icons in gallery if I already own game, no more "On sale" tab...

Why on earth has the menu bar to be so f*cking big?
I like everything but the new logo, it needs colors.
Why have you removed the option to sort user reviews by most recent? :/

Bring back the colours to the logo, GOG!

Other than that, I'm still processing the changes. Can't say I'm excited anyway.
Ok, I found how to change dollars to euros, and euros back to dollars...

So 1$ isnt a 1€ right?
