Good Old Games, or popularly known as GOG, has announced its shut down.

The online PC distribution service, run by Witcher developer CD Projekt, posted a notice on the website announcing its closure, and it seems that the company were hit by financing woes.

“We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is. We’ve debated on it for quite some time and, unfortunately, we’ve decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form.

“We’re very grateful for all support we’ve received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming.

“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.”

CD Projekt has promised to place a solution to allow previous customers to re-download their purchased games.

Good Old Games was a PC distribution platform selling indie games and old time classics.
