GOG launches an early access program with "no questions asked" refunds

Pledges to "carefully evaluate" and hand-pick each game.

Game download shop GOG has launched an early access programme that notably features a "no questions asked" 14-day refund policy.

"It doesn't matter if you're having technical issues, if you don't think the game is fleshed-out enough yet, or if it simply doesn't click with you - all games in development can be returned for any reason," the company said.

GOG promises to "carefully evaluate" and hand-pick each in-development game it sells, and has chosen Starbound, Project Zomboid, TerraTech, Ashes of the Singularity and Curious Expedition to launch with. Each is discounted until 2nd February for the occasion.
