GOG announces something called "Galaxy"
This just in: GOG is making a Steam-esque chat/download/launcher thing called "Galaxy" and would like to remind you that they still do not have DRM.
Galaxy promises to be different from Steam in more than just the DRM example, however. While Steam's end goal is being a Youtube like space where anyone can create and upload a game, Good Old Games has always prided itself on curating the games it allows on its platforms. If Galaxy has the main GoG library, look for older, hard to find classics like Baldur's Gate mixed in with newer games.
It's perhaps a mark of how obnoxious the existing solutions in this space are that the main selling point of this new product is that you don't have to use it.
Further news as it breaks!
