GamersGate was a pioneer in the download of video games.
In 2004, Swedish video game developer Paradox Interactive created the concept that GamersGate founded: the sale of direct download games protected by DRM in response to the increasing demand of its fans. This is the birth of "Paradox on Demand", a distribution system as economical for the merchant as satisfactory for the buyers. An electronic commerce site, finally called GamersGate, is launched in 2006. Initially reserved for the productions of Paradox Interactive, gamersgate.com proposes later, as of 2008, games designed by other developers.
