GOG’s hypothesis is along the lines that a game priced at a lower price will produce more revenue in the long run than the same game priced at a higher price. They are hoping the lowered price will engage more gamers to be more willing to purchase more titles as they are more affordable.

GOG has kicked off the experiment with a mass of games that have been discounted. The following games they have discounted from $9.99 to $6.99:

  • Broken Sword 4: The Angel of Death
  • Ceville
  • Evil Genius
  • Haegemonia Gold Edition
  • King’s Bounty
  • Moto Racer 3
  • Red Baron Pack
  • Shadowgrounds
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • The Incredible Machines
  • Warlords Battlecry 3

And ore games that they have discounted from $5.99 to $3.99:

  • Alien Shooter
  • Celtic Kings
  • Commandos Ammo Pack
  • Constructor
  • Empire Earth
  • Knights and Merchants
  • Litil Divil
  • Lords of Magic
  • Lords of the Realm
  • Mobile Forces
  • Myst: Masterpiece Edition
  • Outcast
  • Personal Nightmare
