Good Old Games has closed shop, at least for now. Message from their site:
Dear GOG users,
We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is. We've debated on it for quite some time and, unfortunately, we've decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form.
We're very grateful for all support we've received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming.
This doesn't mean the idea behind GOG.com is gone forever. We're closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await.
On a technical note, this week we'll put in place a solution to allow everyone to re-download their games. Stay tuned to this page and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
All the best,
I know Underground Gamer recently started allowing GOG versions of games. While they only have some 35,000 users, the timing of this shutdown seems curious. At least they hint at returning in some new form so all is not (yet) lost.
P.S. Did you remember to talk like a pirate today (9/19)...?
EDIT: All isn't lost- it is looking like it could be a publicity stunt.
