|Delisting:||October 31, 2017 - GOG.com|

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
– 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
“Recettear is the story of an item shop, the girl who lives in it, and the fairy who turned her life upside down. Recette Lemongrass finds herself in charge of an item shop built into her house, in order to pay back a loan her father took and then skipped out on – and Tear, her newfound fairy “companion”, won’t take no for an answer!
As Recette, you have to decide how you’ll get your stock – either through playing the markets in town or going out into the wild with an adventuring friend and thrashing beasts until they give up the goodies – how much to sell things for, what the shop should look like, and how to best go about getting the money Tear needs to pay off the loan. If you can’t come up with the money… well, hope you like living in a cardboard box.“
