Where Oh Where Has My Little GoG Gone?

DRM-free online game store GoG.com is now gone.com:
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,
GOG.com Team
Their Twitter stream says:
The official statement from GOG's management about the situation will be announced soon. We'll have more details about this tomorrow.
Speculation is that it's a publicity stunt and they'll be back soon, possibly under a new name.  If that turns out to be true, then it's...  Worst.  Publicity.  Stunt.  Ever.

Update: Smelling more like a stunt by the minute.



Yes, as others have noticed, that there at 0:13 just before the fade is Baldur's Gate.  If they release the Infinity Engine games, I will welcome them back with open arms.  Then punch them in the face.  Then give them my money.  Then probably punch them in the face again.
