DRM-Free Games Site GOG.com Gone

An anonymous reader writes “Just a day after adding a new game and a handful of promotions, GOG.com, a seller of classic games in a DRM-free format, has closed shop, leaving only a sparse placeholder page and a mention on Twitter that ‘sometimes it’s really hard being DRM-free… hard to keep things the way they are and keep management and publishers happy.’ The site mentions that games purchased in the past will become accessible for downloading within the week, but there is no word on how long this will continue to be possible.”

The announcement on the site’s front page says, in part, “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.”
