Outcast, Master Of Orion Arrive On GoG

Good Old Games has a page where you can nominate classic games you'd love to see appear on their site. Then if others agree, they can vote to support this game. The theory being, the more votes, the more interest GoG realises there is in procuring the rights to a particular game. There's some naive voting going on, with people asking for games that are actively on sale, like The Secret of Monkey Island or Planescape: Torment. However, appearing on the list with 4603 votes is Outcast. It's available now.

Also arriving today are the first two Master Of Orion games, both having received almost a thousand votes each. These are exactly the sorts of games that GoG is for, stripping them of any DRM and making sure they work on modern machines. (Rather than, well, let's say, Phantasmagoria.) It's $6 for the pair.

The site is a little shaky just now - that'll teach them to have a four day countdown. But when you access it, then you can find Outcast for $6 also. We're downloading it now, because we want to see how it runs!

Here's the opening of Outcast in case you've not seen it before:
