GOG.com hires Teenagent--for free--to commemorate 100th game addition
4/1/2009 12:01:00 AM
There's actually some kind of anachronistic devilry at work here: GOG.com, believe it or not, has only been in open beta for about six months now. "In that time," said Managing Director Adam Oldakowski, "we've managed to sign 20 publishers and reach the 100-games milestone." It must be the nature of their business--the peddling of good old games, as it were--that makes it feels as though they've been around the block so many more times. I could've sworn that GOG.com was there in 1997 to help launch the Fallout
series. I'm pretty sure I'm right about that one.
Regardless of my time-mangling abilities (perceived or otherwise), GOG.com's 100th game comes in the form of a freebie
. Originally released in 1994 by CD Projekt family member, Metropolis Software, Teenagent
tells the point-and-click adventure of Mark Hopper, a boy kidnapped by two suits from the RGB agency. Lured by the promise that agents get all the chicks, dude
, Mark becomes the agency's saving grace as he cracks the case on a series of bank robberies.
