GOG.com loves indies, releases 3 brand new indie gems just this week!

DRM-free Digital Distributor releases Divinity: Dragon Commander, Spelunky and Papers, Please, prepares to launch indie program at GDC Europe.

(8 August 2013) -- It's a wonderful week for indie gaming at GOG.com! The DRM-free Digital Distributor has released three brand new, exceptional titles: the highly-anticipated genre-bender Divinity: Dragon Commander ; the highly-addictive, hard as nails 2D platformer Spelunky ; and the peculiar dystopian bureaucrat simulator Papers, Please .

GOG.com always releases games that span a variety of genres on any given week, but this week's releases represent a truly incredible diversity. Dragon Commander, already making a name for itself as an " impressive, robust experience" (Games Radar) that puts "big issues on the main stage" (IGN), is a fresh mix of turn-based grand campaign, real-time strategy battles, and dragon combat. Spelunky, praised for its blend of fun and challenge, is an award-winning, unforgiving roguelike platformer. And this week's final indie release Papers, Please is a narrative-driven procedural simulator, in which you peek into people's lives and uncover terrorist plots as an immigration inspector creating an "experience unlike any other" (Digital Spy).

To ensure an increasing influx of diverse indie titles to GOG.com's DRM-free catalog the Digital Distributor is launching its first integrated indie program at the upcoming GDC Europe at Cologne between 19-21 August. For more information the press is welcome to contact GOG.com's PR department, schedule a meeting with GOG.com's representatives at GDC Europe by emailing welovedevsgog.com, or just casually drop by the GOG.com's GDC booth located at table 147.
