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.

manic221: Thats strange i get GBP and USD on mine are you using a VPN by any chance for sites like Netflix? That could be why.
Hickory: No, nothing like that. Just plain old Firefox.
Strange just to show you that GBP is supported i'll post a picture. I guess it's just a little bug if you do need it to be in GPB you could try using a different browser and see if that fixes it

Thanks for implementing credit store for the Fair Package, GOG, your continued willingness to spearhead a more friendly flavour of regional pricing is duely noted and much, much appreciated.

The site looks good, it will take a litlle while to adjust to the new design but that's to be expected.

I just put one order through and the ability to change currency on the fly is simple to use and very useful - great job.
Hmm,...I confess, it will take some time to get used to this new look.

Some things:

- where is the nice, warm GOG color scheme? please bring it back (or give me the opportunity to change it on my account, at least)
- five unredeemed codes for "The WItcher 1" have disappeared from my Giftlist. Would be nice, to get them back.
- please reduce the menu bar to half of its size (thickness)
- I don't like the way the screenshots on the game cards work now. I think, the way it was before, was much better.


- please re-add the "redownload"-button on the game cards.

Edit 2:

- the prices have vanished from the wishlist, please add them again.

Edit 3:

- Ok, the giftcodes are back - thank you.

A comment from someone on another board regarding this new design:
There's so much grey it made me think that John Major had designed the new site.

It's good to see that you guys are continuously seeking ways to improve yourselves. I am hoping that you continue like this in the future.

I guess that maybe in six months or by the end of next year we might get another fresh, newer and better website experience, may I humbly suggest that when you improve the website again you add:

-A nice colorful fun design that doesn't make it look like the page is offline. Including the logo which looks so awful and dead on each of my browser tab pages.

-A search bar at the top of the homepage that makes it very easy type in and scan games and prices and jump onto the game page quickly, if needed.

-Maybe you can add my icon image to appear on top of the homepage when I log in. Although I admit it is somewhat colorful and will clash against the drab, lifeless, offline tone you are trying to set for the homepage.

Oh well, just some suggestions for the next time you do a fresher and better homepage redesign.
DonRumata1: Damn it, the old search bar's gone! I can handle the newspaper/mobile-friendly layouts fine, but this needs to change. It was so easy to simply type in a few letters and get the game I was searching for.
Ixamyakxim: This. I mean seriously you'd think this would be the first thing in as it's a WONDERFUL sales tool. I don't know how may times I saw someone mention a game on the forums, saw something along the side of my screen on a GoG list, etc and I just tapped in a few letters then BANG there I was, viewing a product on an impulse. It got me to look at games I probably wouldn't have known existed otherwise and it probably gets GoG many sales. Sounds like a win-win and something I want back.

Also, I second the "device" toggle. I wish more websites let me click "Monitor Interface" or "Mobile / Device Interface"

I hate the mobile device "tileset" style on a monitor.
May I interest you in a wishlist item?
manic221: The search bar is still as wonderful as it once was when you click on the search button on the top a couple of letters and the game your after comes up nothings changed in that regard.
Yes, once I've been redirected from the front pages to Games, which wasn't previously the case. The search bar worked just the same way at splash with the previous layout. I can see this disappointing new users wanting to quickly get to a game's page.

I voted for that wish the moment I saw it, lol.

You know how I know clueless designers got their hands on a website?
There's a HUGE top menu bar that you just CANNOT SCROLL away!

Seriously, stop stealing my precious vertical screen space.

You're testing from a catalogue page, right? From other parts of the site, 'Search' is just a link to

No it isn't...

See my picture...
Happy new GOG! It is weird but we'll get used to it..! [Checks the latest promo..] hm....
Well after testing the website and "chew" the new features, this is going to be the first time I am going to give you guys, bad feedback...

I LOVE this place, so please, don´t think is destructive feedback, as every single time I can buy a game here I do, as a priority, even ignoring STEAM or others.


-I dont know what I like, this is the biggest problem, if you ask me what I like from this update I dont know what to say... no one of the new features made me excited or happy.


-Many small things are broken, from search, to wishlist, avatar on the main page, to "owned" games...etc.

-Confusing prize system, yeah, seriously it feels now confusing, whatever if it is the same prize or not. I never missed my currency. So this is an option, but definitively not a "great" new feature.

-Worse design, yeah, after checking it for some time, I only like the visibility of the "news" section, all other things are definitively worse. Even if I dont consider that the whole graphic design looks more depressive than before.

-No new really good community features. For the forum, our collection, add friends, whatever...

-Indie Movies about Gaming DRM Free Wathever, seriously, I dont care about this. I think it could look as a smart movement, and I hope you will find a "niche" here to sell this movies, but I want to be really really honest with you guys, I didnt see there anything I want to spend money or time. Indie games mixed with new games and "good old games"? Yeah, I loved that changes... I supported you... but movies? and this KIND of movies?

Superbad Feedback:

-Seriously guys, try to not "lose" or retire more games from the website, doesnt make us feel "secure", I know we still have the games for download, and probably we will ever have them... but this is not good at all.

You will know what are you doing, I loved and respected your work allways, I bought TONS of games here, more that I can even have time to play, or re-play, games I even have in other platforms or boxed, and I was pretty happy today at the first moment when I see you made changes... but...after been through them, I am deeply dissapointed... and even like this I bought one of the games on the "retirement/last chance" list...

But this last movement... I dont like it, and I need to tell you.

That's the site's front page, which is the front page of... the catalogue.

That's the home page it works from any part of the site exactly like that the only place it doesn't work like that is from the Forums everywhere else it pops up from wherever you are.
Hate the new design. I'll admit upfront- I'm the kind of guy who generally hates changes, when I get used to the way something is, I like it to stay that way. It just feels easier and friendlier.

But it's not just that- I really dislike the "mobile friendly look". I'm not using my mobile, I'm using my PC. And right now the page just seems cluttered, less user-friendly. Still, it does not matter much, after all it's a website, not my living room ;)
