GOG.com at CDP Conference: “We Love Developers!”

Warsaw, Poland (30 May, 2012) -- GOG.com, the digital distributor bringing indie gems at unbeatable prices read a love letter addressing its feelings for indie game-makers during the CD Projekt RED Group Summer Conference and explained that GOG.com Loves Developers. After a heartfelt thanks to indie devs who launched their games DRM-free on GOG.com, they transitioned into a slow jam to better express their deep and abiding love for all things indie. Because such a strong, brave and straight-forward message deserves a response, an e-mail address WeLoveDevs@gog.com was created for developers to contact the GOG.com team about releasing their games on the 100% DRM-free platform. Because moving images speak louder than words, a video with the love confession has been made available today. Click the image below to play.

Earlier this year, the daring distributor with a difference has announced that it’s not only about “Old Games” anymore. Such indie releases as Machinarium, Trine, Spacechem, or Darwinia became instant-classics and settled extremely well in GOG.com catalog and the hearts of GOG.com users. Legend of Grimrock, the first of these indie games available for preorder on  GOG.com, was a particular success with more than 20,000 copies sold within the first two months--or roughly half of the units that GOG.com sold of the Witcher 2 in the first six months! The site has been growing hugely, with a recent 30% jump in users, traffic, visitors, and sales after their Bigger, Fresher, Newer relaunch, and this has been a big plus for developers, too.

Legend of Grimrock’s success story, along with the large number of  pre-orders for Botanicula and Resonance, prove that GOG.com, DRM-free and problem-free platform that reaches millions of dedicated PC gamers, is a real alternative or a supplement to other distribution platforms and self-publishing as well. GOG.com provides Indie Devs with market expertise, marketing & PR support, extra care and attention for every release, and a strong community, known for its passion towards only the best releases possible. Any developer with a high-quality gem that’s ready to shine can contact GOG.com at WeLoveDevs@gog.com.
