Good Old Games now Indie-Friendly
"We are not machines", state games distributor Good Old Games, "We talk." Don't trust them. Never trust them. That's how they get you. The robots are coming. They come for us.
Anyway - Good Old Games are now attracting New Young Games it seems, in the form of trying to get even more indie games onto their service via an attractive new submission portal where there is staff on hand "always ready to openly discuss your game". Interesting? Definitely. It seems that Good Old Games is quite dedicated to this process, stating:
"We'll tell you exactly what we think about your title. We know our users' tastes, and we do our best to present them with a selection of DRM-free games they'll enjoy. We review all submissions and pick those that offer the qualities our users value most, such as gameplay depth, originality, and a high level of polish."
Furthermore, they also promise to write back within two weeks and never "leave you without feedback!" Of course, this is not without benefit for them, as GOG takes a 40% cut of the money until the advance is paid back - after which they go back to the normal 70/30 split.
So what do you think of this new direction? Something new? Or should GOG stick to their guns?
