I did a search and I didn’t see anything about this so I thought I would let everyone know.
Be sure to get your DRM free games that you own before June 1st, 2017.
From an email I got about a month ago:
The DotEmu online store is closing
To our beloved customers,
After over 6 years of good and loyal service, we sadly inform you that we have decided to definitely close DotEmu’s online store. It was a place where thousands of PC gamers had been able to find and to buy their favorite retro games but we have no choice but to close it with a heavy heart.
Unfortunately, there are more and more companies that sell games on the online market, the competition is fiercer than it used to be. On the other side, it’s been now a few years that we’re focusing on the development/publishing of console and mobile games instead of distribution. This is the reason why we, DotEmu, have decided to shut the store down.
The schedules for the closing store are as follows:
March 1st, 2017: You won’t be able to buy new games after this date but will still be able to access to your account in order to download the games you previously bought.
June 1st, 2017: the store is closing permanently. The domain will no longer be accessible after this date.
To download your games, please follow the steps below:
Go on the website : https://store.dotemu.com/user
On the top right of your screen, you will find your profile
Select “My Games”
Select the game you want to install
Download and enjoy it!
You don’t have to worry about losing your games, you can still play them even if the store is closed due to the DRM free system. But make sure you download your games before June 1st, otherwise you won’t be able to do so anymore.
Be assured, we will be still looking for great retro games for our community because our mission remains the same: give every gamer access to yesteryear’s classic video games on today’s platforms, including PC, mobile, console and more. You can follow us on Twitter and Facebook and keep an eye on our current and future awesome retrogaming projects.
Thank you again for having being part of the great DotEmu’s online store adventure and for all the support you gave us. If DotEmu has grown that much, it is all thanks to you and the faith you put into our company for all these years.
The DotEmu Team
