What is Beamdog?

Beamdog was founded in 2009 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada! And it's true, we all have the subtle scent of of syrup and can skate with our eyes closed.

Beamdog is a game developer and digital distributor. When you purchase a game from us on our website, you can then use the Beamdog Client to quickly download your game. When the download is finished, your game is ready to play - no installation required! Our newer games, such as Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition have their own stand-alone installers!

On Beamdog, the games you purchase are yours. Once you’ve purchased your games, they won’t be taken away. Beamdog has ceased selling most third party games, but previously purchased games will remain available!
