Good Old Games Adds More Classic Activision Titles

by Rainier on Feb. 11, 2010 @ 11:07 a.m. PST

GOG.com has signed a digital distribution agreement with Activision, expanding its catalog with a slew of classic titles, Phantasmagoria and Space Quest 4+5+6 pack, while more titles will be unveiled gradually in the coming weeks, DRM-free of course.

Phantasmagoria ($9.99) directed by the famous Roberta Williams, is a horror-adventure game from 1995. The game caused lots of controversy when it was released and was one of the best-selling game of the year. Engaging story and thrilling scenes will keep every mature gamer's heart rate elevated for hours.

Space Quest 4+5+6 pack ($9.99) is one of the most famous point and click adventure series by Sierra. It's the ultimate example of just how much cliche can be squeezed into a game. The games love to parody sci-fi franchises like Star Trek or Star Wars, but they don't stop there. No pop-culture reference is safe with Roger Wilco and the series' hilariously sarcastic narrator on the job.

“Signing the agreement with Activision is the biggest thing that’s happened at GOG.com since the actual announcement of the service. This is a huge step forward for our site and for digital distribution as a whole, as Activision is one of the biggest publishers in the world with a long history in the games industry,” said Adam Oldakowski, Managing Director at GOG.com. “We're even happier to bring Activision games back to gamers, as GOG.com is the only place right now, where you can grab the announced titles. We've also managed to work on those titles to provide full compatibility with modern operating systems."
