GOG.com relaunched to sell newer PC games

Drops the Good Old Games meaning.

What began as Good Old Games, GOG.com, has relaunched to sell new PC games alongside old.

The relaunched Gog.com.

Therefore, the Good Old Games meaning will fade away. The company will be known instead by the acronym-turned-company-title GOG.com. "It doesn't matter what G, O and G stand for," explained a post on GOG.com. "Gee Oh Gee dot com stands for high-quality, DRM-free gaming, each week with bigger and newer games."

Trine and The Whispered World are examples of 'new' games available right now. Legend of Grimrock is out 11th April. Spacechem, Machinarium and Darwinia are "coming soon". Apparently, more than 20 indie and new games have been signed for release in "the next few months".

The GOG.com website has been redesigned, and the GOG.com downloader improved.

CD Projekt used homemade RPG The Witcher 2 to test GOG.com as a destination for newer PC games. The result? Around 40,000 sales - the best result of anywhere but Steam.

The original Trine can be bought on GOG.com now.
