GOG Affiliate changes - new link address
Liam Dawe 12 Aug
Hi all, just be aware that the GOG Affiliate system we use is changing. They're moving to a new company and so any previous links will no longer do anything from September onwards.

I think a few readers used our links to help out in some places, so here's the new link to use:

https://af.gog.com/?as=1636858786

Note: we use a JS auto-linker, so it won't work directly clicked here as it duplicates the code this is just for a reference for you to copy if needed, as it auto changes all GOG links to use our new code.

So with the auto-linker clicking gog.com anywhere on GOL will use it. This will also save me time, which is nice.

Hey Liam,

On Twitter you gave another link... so which one is correct?
I've been following this GOG article to get direct links to games (e.g. https://af.gog.com/game/synergia?as=1636858786). Is there any indication the affiliate link is actually working (on Humble Store, I get an Humble Partner icon on checkout)?

The one in this post is our main link but we have a different ID to post to social media and such, either works fine.

I don't believe GOG show any affiliate info which I agree would be good. Will email them to request it.

Update: GOG rep told me they are already looking into doing it, though not likely this year.
