Good Old Games, the DRM-free digital distributor of mostly older games - that changed when the site began selling titles like The Witcher 2 - has announced that 90% of the classic titles are now compatible with Windows 8.


According to the site, "There are currently 431 titles fixed, tested, and reported to be working properly under Microsoft's new OS. Note that most of these have not had the master builds updated, so you shouldn't need to redownload the installer or anything.

"We'll also be adding more Windows 8 games as time goes by and we've got time to apply some fixes to more of the classic games in the catalogue."


Windows 8 was officially released a month ago.

GOG is a great site - too bad they can't get some of the games sooner - if they did I would only get my games from them ;)
Not really true - but many games that hit GOG will get a final tune up that is much necessary and the GOG communicty is as far as I have come in contact with it - a really nice and friendly community. Helpful and pretty quick to sort out mods and fan patches a like to get things up and running.
Also, GOG is also updating their services how to get the games and downloader is getting newer versions and such. Great site overall IMHO.
