The GamersGate is a video game digital distribution service and storefront operated by GamersGate AB.

The storefront primary distributes games and activation keys. For games that doesn't sold as activation keys, users are requires to use GamersGate Downloader to download the purchased games, even for games that were sold as DRM-free (see Install without internet access).[1][2] Publishers are free to use either Sony SecuROM or 3rd-party DRM.[3]

Similar to Steam, games and activation keys sold through the storefront are region-locked to specific country/region where they were purchased. Do note that acquisition methods for a game can be changed by the publisher after the user had already purchased the game, as it had happened where some game downloads were replaced with Steam keys.[4] Multiple Games are also region-locked for purchase in Latin America.

GamersGate was launched in 2006.

Issues fixed

Install without internet access

Game installation requires internet access even for games sold as DRM-free.[1]
Bypass setup removal[1]
  1. Run the downloader and download the game normally. A GamersGate temporary files folder will be made in the same folder as the downloader.
  2. Wait for the installer to start.
  3. With the installer open, make a copy of GamersGate temporary files.
  4. Close the installer and the downloader (choose to delete the downloaded files).
  5. The copied installation folder contains setup.exe or install.exe (or similar) which will run without internet access.


This installer will work offline for games sold as DRM-free; games sold with DRM may still require online activation.

    d. What options is there concerning DRM?
    You have 3 options:
    1. Sell the game DRM Free
    2. GamersGate can add DRM, if so Sony SecuROM will be the provider.
    3. If the game is already wraped with DRM then GamersGate can sell that version.
