Tower of Time is a daily flash deal today on the homepage - and only shows a windows icon, so (while logged out) I skipped over it as uninteresting - except that it does actually have a Linux version! Gog is losing out on potential Linux sales by not having the product tile accurately indicate availability for Linux.

The same thing happens in the main navigation menu, where it's showing under "Bestsellers", also with only a windows icon. I think I recall having noticed the same thing with other games, too, but this is the first time where it got close to equating a lost sale. (Sadly Tower of Time has a minimum Ubuntu 17.04 requirement, while I don't intend to upgrade my 16.04 for the next two years, so it wasn't actually a lost sale for me, but still.)
For me, on the Tower of Time's page, there are :
- the tux icon
- mentions of Ubuntu 17.04, Mint 18.2 and Debian 9 in System requirements
- but only Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10) in Game details - "Works on"

System Requirements are to be taken with a grain of salt, they mostly reflect on what the game has been tested on. My system still runs Mint 18 (Ubuntu 16.04 based) and this game runs perfectly fine :-)

Sometimes even the hardware requirements are a bit overkill. I suggest checking out youtube videos and other websites to see how a game runs on what.

EDIT: I just noticed Huinehtar did list Mint 18.2.

@linuxvangog has vanished from the forum and Reddit. I think GOG changed communication policy, and forbade developers from talking to the community.
