Buying online games via Steam and Origin is convenient, but there are times when players will run into the problem of DRM, forcing them to maintain a consistent online connection in order to keep the game going. Good Old Games (GOG), however, has a new portal where developers don’t have to worry about that.
The company has launched a section on its GOG.com page where developers can launch games without the need for DRM, while at the same time earning royalty advances and reaching out to a bigger audience. The arrangement calls for a 60/40 split, which will then revert to 70/30 after the amount that was advanced gets paid back. It’s not a bad deal, and developers would certainly benefit from GOG’s audience.
