“We are very excited to be able to bring these classic interactive titles to our platform; it has been a long-time dream of ours,” said Guillaume Rambourg, Managing Director at GOG.com. “Luckily, Disney Interactive is always looking for new ways to give players access to content, so this was a natural collaboration. To those gamers playing these titles for the first time…May the Force Be With You!”
