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.

Every time I post a comment, I end up looking at the page footer. :-/

I don't like the almost-monochromatic interface at all. It somehow feels very aggressive and hostile, as if I'm about to gonna get screwed over by GOG.

first thing : i had a shitload of yet unused gift codes, THEY ARE ALL GONE




first thing : okay it looks like the unredeemed codes are the ones that stayed and the redeem history is gone. still, glitch around removed-from-catalogue game codes.
Are you sure? I have a unused Torchlight code and it seem no longer valid.
Fancy fancy! Looks nice, close enough to the old design to be familiar. I see my old grumbly Fallout gift codes, which were cancelled after greedery, have been zeroed out, though they are still in my account. Games and messages seem to have made the switch without issue. Cool!
Great improvement - the account page now takes forever to load and I have a phantom notifcation for... nothing! O__o

Edit: and it cost several pence more for games in £s than $s.

My compliments to the webdevs.

It's a better site now.

I'm not very positive about this either. Everyone was sooo expecting Galaxy, instead we got movies. That's like something entirely different and I'm not sure how many of the current users are interested. I also don't like that it's all grey now, the green-orange really stood out.

Somebody on gog has a grey fetish.

One thing that I love-adore-worship on GOG, and that is generally unsung, is the art for the game cards. And generally the art, on the website. And I loved how it was integrated to the web page's background. NOW EVERYTHING IS LOCKED IN LITTLE TILES, JAILED AND COMPARTMENTED LIKE SOME SORT OF SWISS IDEAL OF ORDER AND TIDYNESS. WHAT'S WITH THAT.



Edit here too :

On a closer look, there seems to be some bleeding to the what's new tile over the backdrop. Most of the news just spread a vague tint around, but there's some half-covered hint of imade when it comes to wastelands 2. So, yay, the images RESIST, and FIGHT BACK ! Break down the walls !!

Also I *hope* this is just the first stage of the upgrade roll-out, there's lots of things that still need work - being able to sort forum search result by date for a start
Seems like such a simple thing....

I think support will have a lot to do with fucked up gift codes -.- Just three things I noticed:

1. I gifted a copy of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter a couple of days ago and it was definitely redeemed. Guess what happened? The code's working again! I have the unredeemed gift back in my gifts. The same could go for Wizardry 8 - Lifthrasil won it in my 100 thread today and already dropped a "Thank you", but the code is not redeemed...

2. I have a gift code which contains 3 games that are no longer in your catalog (not Fallout!). Guess what? I can't redeem shit with this key -.-

3. Grabbed the Torchlight freebie as a gift code and can't find it in my list. Not a big problem since I wanted to get rid of it anyway, but... You know...

I don't feel like checking all my keys and writing support right now. This'll be tedious (60 keys or something like that?). Just dropping this here to let you guys know that you messed this one up.
Has anyone had a problem with previously unused gift codes? I had one for Torchlight which I was positive hadn't been used yet, but it was removed from my list in the update.

Luckily, I had a backup list. Attempting to redeem it while logged in yields "Invalid Code", logging out and doing the same gives "Temporarily Locked". Is it just me? (Or just for the freebies distributed?)
Please add Qiwi wallet support!
I guess, maybe, we f&&ked up in being anti-regional pricing. I don't see a bright future, unfortunately (or maybe that's just the initial shock).

Ugh I hate the new design.The old one was genius in it's simplicity.
