Please oh please let this game become reality! I want a stable Windows 7 version pls!
Perusing the GoG website this morning, I noticed that they’ve now started adding classic Activision PC games to their library. This is magical news to retro-tards like me, this just got really real…especially for the few games they’ve announced and what may come in the future. All I can say right now is…HELL YEAH Gabriel Knight!

Announced today on their website:

In a landmark deal for the DRM-free digital distribution movement, Activision Publishing Inc. is bringing a wide range of classic games to!

It’s now official, we’re bringing you the biggest announcement in’s history – Activision with it’s wealth of PC gaming gems has joined our DRM-free family. With the announcement we’re revealing first two classics which should be instantly recognizable to any fan of good, old games: Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura and Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers. Other games from the Activision catalogue will be unveiled gradually in the coming weeks, so expect more from this publisher during Month of Activision on!

Now, I know it may shame me as a Retro-tard, but I’ve never heard of the Arcanum game, but I am intimate with Gabriel Knight because of how prolific it was during my PC gaming years. Seriously, that was one of the LAST games that I can fondly remember playing on PC…now I wonder if they’ll re-release the Heavy Gear games or even better all of the Mechwarrior 2 games + expansions. Oh man, I need to go change my pants.
