A friend of mine sent a link to this: GOG.com. It’s an online distribution service, focussing on older games – the front page has stuff like Fallout 2 and Sacrifice.

Ever since Steam came along I’ve been hoping for more oldies on online services like this. There’s certainly some demand out there for the classics, and even if it’s not a really huge market, the costs involved should be pretty small. Apparently the guys behind GOG have enthused about one day adding the Lucasarts back catelogue, which I’d especially like to see.

Anyway i’ve signed up for the beta test so if i’m lucky I’ll let you all know.
