Delisting

This title was delisted on October 31st, 2017 after being abandoned on GOG.com by its development or publishing partners. On October 25th, 2017 GOG.com’s PR representative, Elcook, explained the situation on the site’s forums:

For some time now, we’re working on relocating GOG Ltd. as a company from Cyprus to Poland (legally speaking our Cypriot GOG and Polish GOG are merging into one GOG located in Poland), and this should happen with the end of October. This whole endeavor requires a lot of paper work, mostly legal and financial, and time. It won’t affect your rights as users in any way, and you don’t have to do anything when the merger is done.

There is one change that will happen, and we want to give you a heads up about it. Since we’re merging, we have to assign all the license agreements with all our partners to GOG located in Poland. We’ve been doing this for a while now, and almost all of them will be assigned. Unfortunately, some partners are very hard to reach, even for us, and since we didn’t manage to get their consents to this assignment we’ll have to remove a few titles from the catalogue until further notice. 

Below you’ll find a list of all 15 titles that will be removed from the catalogue on October 31st, at 3 PM UTC. We will be doing everything to get those titles back, but we cannot promise when they will make a return to GOG, so this might be your last chance to buy them, or grab Warsow and AFK The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard for free!

Titles to be removed on October 31st: 

– FRACT OSC 
– Slender The Arrival
– Recettear An Item Shop’s Tale
– Chantelise – A Tale of Two Sisters 
– Warsow (free)
– Mutant Mudds 
– Dyad 
– Sokobond 
– Chronology
– Devil’s Dare
– The Ballads of Reemus: When The Bed Bites 
TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard [Movie](free)

EDIT: Removed Fractured Soul, 99 Levels to Hell and Miasmata from the list as we managed to get consents to those assignments 🙂

As of August 2019 the remaining titles above are still delisted from GOG.com, although they are available on other platforms (see table at top).


About the Game

FRACT OSC is a musical exploration game. You arrive in a forgotten place and explore the vast and unfamiliar landscape to discover the secrets of an abandoned world that was once built on sound. As you start to make sense of this strange new environment, you work to rebuild its machinery by solving puzzles and bring the world back to life by shaping sound and creating music within the game.

FRACT features a beautiful open world to explore and decipher with music-based puzzles, stunning visuals, and an amazing score that evolves as you play. As you progress through the game, you unlock tools to make your own music in the FRACT studio, where you can also export and share your creations with others.
