GOG.com’s Spring Update includes a Free Game!

Warsaw, Poland. 5 May, 2011 - GOG.com ( http://www.gog.com) the ultimate place for every fan of classic PC gaming is entering the Spring season with another site update, introducing new features, and a surprise for all GOG.com users, a totally free classic from Atari - Dragonsphere.

As announced during the presentation on CD Projekt Days Spring Conference, the update adds two highly requested by users improvements: a new downloader application and personal messages. The new downloader has been made from scratch by GOG.com developers and features multithreaded downloads for performance, automatic error checking and runs only when user is downloading something from GOG.com. The downloader is not a client application and is optional to use, although recommended for downloading big games, like i.e. The Witcher 2.

Personal Messages, the second biggest feature of the Spring Update, is a combination of instant and private messaging. The system will have fully configurable privacy settings and just like the downloader is completely optional. Aside of those two changes, the team has introduced many various improvements to make the user experience even better - those include improved checkout system, update to work flawlessly on newest browsers and easier to use coupon system.

As a cherry on top for the Spring Update, the GOG.com Team came up with the release of Dragonsphere, free to all users. The game is an adventure point-and-click title by famous MicroProse and features excellent story, clever puzzles and simple yet appealing graphics.“It’s easy to lose yourself in this fresh, engaging game” according to PC Gamer. Don’t wait, create a GOG.com account, if you haven’t already, and download the game for free.
