shmerl: inXile will review adding the Linux version of The Bard's Tale to GOG as well! But it might take a while still:
Good news! At this point I am not sure whether GOG or game developers are causing this delay in bringing already existing Linux clients to GOG.
I have many games on my wishlist ready to be insta-added to my backlog once Linux versions arrive. :)
First three Blackwell games are now available for Linux on Humble Bundle and Steam. :) I already got them from HB, but I guess there might be other Linuxers that might be interested. I guess we might be seeing them on GOG soon.

It appears GOG doesn't check very thoroughly to ensure their tarballs will be free of broken symbolic links.

Here's the script that generated that output in case anyone else wants to check their stuff:

I originally wrote it for a completely unrelated reason but now it's got some alternative modes too. (see --help)

(I want to keep all my game files on my external USB drive read-only so I know nothing needing automatic backup exists there, but some of my native Linux games wanted to store their save files inside the data directory. If I ever decide to bring the drive over to a friend's house to let them sample my library, I'll need a way to check which games require intervention to unbreak those symlinks.)

On a related note, if anyone wants to check which .debs are not backed by a repository (eg. if you want to switch them to tarballs because your root partition is getting full), the simplest way is to make sure aptitude is installed (an enhanced replacement for apt-get that comes standard on Debian but not on Ubuntu) and then run "aptitude search ~o".
