With over 150 games from Russia, the move to add even more and also offer Russian users an easier access to the catalogue in their own native language is both welcome and understandable. Like its German counterpart, this is celebrated with the release of new games in addition to discounts on older titles.
The following titles are new:

There are obviously too many games to go into detail (and almost none I actually played) and it’s difficult to find the cream of the crop. However, it seems that the war theme is prevalent in most of the titles, as is an unsettling feeling permeating these games. The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has been praised many times for doing something different from other FPS, while Pathologic is a unique horror survival simulation experience. Knock-Knock also appears to be quite an interesting take on the horror genre. I guess I have to check out the Pilot Brothers adventure game because of my affinity to the genre…
Another nice move by GOG in addition to these discounts and releases everyone can profit from is that users from Russia will not only get Russian customer support, but “more games will be priced appropriately for these territories”, meaning that they’ll be available cheaper there due to “independent countries that emerged from the USSR, places where game prices have historically been lower than in western markets”.
