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.

If you use GOG Galaxy you can also use a nifty-sounding rollback feature, which lets you roll back to any previous version of a game. Handy for patch day if you don't like the changes or something doesn't work, although I'm not sure what will happen with multiplayer games and conflicting client versions trying to connect to one another, or servers.

All in-development games will be DRM-free, as is GOG's mantra, and there's the promise of many more to come
