Re: GOG.com's 'Last Chance' Promotional Sale

But ... why?  There's plenty of older games on GOG, so why are these ones being removed?

Re: GOG.com's 'Last Chance' Promotional Sale

Could be a lot of reasons. For example:

 

  • The contract they had with the developer/publisher is expiring.
  • The developer/publisher thought they weren't getting their money's worth out of the service.
  • The developer/publisher decided that DRM-free was not for them
  • Any other reason under the sun.

I am considering getting Freedom Force. Any other recommendations?

Re: GOG.com's 'Last Chance' Promotional Sale

Most of these games are on steam and probably have been subject to lots of Low-price Key give aways. The gothics have been in a humble bundle iirc, as have Guld, Red Faction, Penumbra, Painkiller.  

I still find it odd that they are removing games.  Did the developers/publishers of these games stop reselling though gog?
