Warsaw, Poland. December 9, 2008. GOG.com ( http://www.gog.com), the classic-games haven for anyone looking for DRM-free PC oldies, is proud to announce an agreement with Adventure Soft to bring its classic adventure games to the site. Under the agreement, GOG.com's games catalogue will expand with the addition of, among others, the adventures of the pointy-hatted teenager we all know and love… and we're talking about Simon the Sorcerer, of course, and not that Harry fellow. Thanks to the magic tricks of the GOG.com team, all games are 100% compatible with modern operating systems and have never even heard of DRM.
“It's great to have Adventure Soft on board. Point-and-click adventures are iconic examples of PC gaming in the 90s, and games like Simon the Sorcerer are some of the best examples of the genre,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director of GOG.com. “With the addition of the Adventure Soft games, our users will get a load of brain-wracking riddles and off-beat humor.”
Adventure Soft's games will start hitting GOG.com's game catalogue with today's appearance of the original Simon the Sorcerer ( http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/simon_the_sorcerer). The announcement of the Adventure Soft agreement is the next phase of “GOG.com fever month” that began when the company announced the addition of Arx Fatalis to the ever-growing catalogue of Good Old Games. Expect more news about new features, new releases and some more agreements to announce in the upcoming days.
