GOG: Windows 8 support is now official

Some 430 games "fixed, tested, and reported to be working"

PC digital distribution service has confirmed official support for Windows 8.


"As of today we're adding official Windows 8 support for most of the games in catalog," the firm announced.

"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."

Work on Windows 8 support has not concluded.

"Some of the titles, our build ninjas performed their usual magic on, and they'll work now in Windows 8--and we're even adding Windows 7 support to a few. 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 catalog," read a statement from GOG.
