Actually with this release you can buy it on GOG and still get a DRM-free Linux version and Steam key:

Oh, this is interesting, thanks for the pointer! Kudos to developers for enabling such thing. However my only concern is, how to track updates for that? Having releases from tons of different sources is hard to manage. Will updates be available from the developers site?

Yeah, when HIB gets a bigger catalogue of indies, GOG could just rebrand themselves back to Good Old Games.

I only see nine games there and you cannot even narrow down the search to DRM free but if you could it would be only four. However they have Linux although they probably do not offer support themselves.

So, I think from a neutral point of view GOG is hurting itself by not offersing some Linux support, if not much by means of actual sales then surely by reputation and also being an easy target for criticism.

They are surely not sleeping but they don't give the impression of being extremely agile, innovative ... ahead of the curve.

For improving the general situation regarding Linux gaming the new store is surely a step forward and increases the pressure on GOG to also do something. How much pressure exactly and if Linux games will ever come to GOG in the near future... remains a secret to us.

There are lots of games in Humble Store. Kind of. Around 400, assuming this site is correct: http://calvein.github.io/humble-games/table.html
I hope that HB will make a proper store page, with all of those games available for purchase at any time. Now it just seems to be another campaign type of thing.

Yes I know those games can be bought anytime, but I mean, a store page where they can be easily found.

I'd still prefer GOG w/ linux versions over HB though.

Then how do I access them? This link: https://www.humblebundle.com/store seems to go nowhere except for the front nine games.

1. Open the link from InkPanthers post
2. Click the name of the game
3. Buy & enjoy

Thanks for the recipe. So there are a lot of games. That's nice. Sorting abilities by genre or price or exluding by feature (only Linux and DRM free, ...) would be even better.
I'll bet most here would be happy if GOG would just supply the Linux files from the dev/publisher. Tag them as not officially supported and let the Linux users here have access to them.

It's not like GOG has the source code for these games. There's only so much support that they can provide anyway, really. Truth be told, the Linux members here can probably solve any issues that arise faster than the official support team would. No offense intended GOG. :P

Im actually wondering why they don't do this. Probably cause there will be a segment of linux buyers who will buy the game and expect support regardless of what is said
I think it's more about gog's refund policy.

If gog gives linux version as goodies without support and without refund on it, I assume that it wouldn't be easy to explain what has changed if in the future gog gives linux version as a true supported version with refund policy.

I think gog is afraid of some policy's exploit or at least some flame war.

On the second look, they seem to be entirely separate from the Store. More like links for devs to put on their sites. >.>
