50 games for the free OS available right NOW!

A while ago, [url=]we've announced our plans to add Linux support as one of the features of our digital platform, with 100 games on the launch day sometime this fall. We've put much time and effort into this project and now we've found ourselves with over 50 titles, classic and new, prepared for distribution, site infrastructure ready, support team trained and standing by, and absolutely no reason to wait until October or November. We're still aiming to have at least 100 Linux games in the coming months, but we've decided not to delay the launch just for the sake of having a nice-looking number to show off to the press. It's not about them, after all, it's about you. So, one of the most popular site feature requests on our community wishlist is granted today: Linux support has officially arrived on!

The first 50+ titles we've have in store for you come from all the corners of our DRM-Free catalog. Note that we've got many classic titles coming officially to Linux for the very first time, thanks to the custom builds prepared by our dedicated team of penguin tamers. That's over twenty fan-favorite classics, like &[url=]Flatout 2, , <a href="">Darklands, or Realms of the Haunting we've personally ushered one by one into the welcoming embrace of Linux gamers. That's already quite a nice chunk of our back-catalog, and you can expect more from our dedicated Linux team soon!

Now, for the recent titles. We've got some indie games with native Linux versions that finally find their well-deserved spot in our store. Among them, debuting on Linux, - a well received original comedic Sci-Fi puzzler. On top of that, be on the lookout for two new additions to the catalog: [url=]Gods Will Be Watching (coming in a couple of hours) and Unrest:Special Edition (Linux build coming right up!), both of them very fresh and intriguing. This is the very first time we can provide you with all the PC versions of a premiere game, and we will continue to do so in the future. If there's a Linux version of a title we're releasing, our aim is to deliver it to you Day-1. But enough about us, let's talk about the games. Here's what you can be playing on Linux today:

As if this wasn't exciting enough, we've put more than half of these titles on a special promo! Head out to the promo page and find out which of them you can get up to 75% off until Tuesday, 9:59AM GMT. Of course, all of the games from the list above that you already own will be updated with Linux versions with no additional cost for you, just as you might have expected from

"OK, but how will Linux support actually work on" - you might ask. For both native Linux versions, as well as special builds prepared by our team, will provide distro-independent tar.gz archives and support convenient DEB installers for the two most popular Linux distributions: Ubuntu and Mint, in their current and future LTS editions. Helpful and responsive customer support has always been an important part of the gaming experience. We wouldn't have it any other way when it comes to Linux, and starting today our helpdesk offers support for our official Linux releases on Ubuntu and Mint systems.

Diversity and freedom of choice have always been an important part of the way. We're very glad that we could improve our service with the addition of the free (and DRM-Free) alternative to the commercial operating systems. Talking with gamers is just as important, so we're counting on your feedback! If you've got any questions, suggestions, or run into any trouble, just tell us in the forum thread below this post. Just please be gentle, this is [url=" target="_blank]our very first time[/url] with Linux. Happy launch day, everyone!
Thanks. It was about time.

The linux market is small... I wouldnt ask to put all your eggs in linux. All i wanted is for you to support games that already support linux. But if you go the xtra mile and port games that I want and drm free, count me in for future purchases ;)

Agreed with the icon. I use ubuntu about 25% of the time and had to zoom in to see what the icon was for. It looks like the android share button ( )
Strijkbout: Okay GOG, start supporting FreeBSD now!


Great day for Linux users.
Never heard of that Linux distro ...

cyboff: !@%%^#$&$%^*.. just realized I have to upgrade my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS first... :( oookey... it's about time...
Tolya: Upgrade if you experience a problem with a game and you need support from us. 12.04 isn't that far away from 14.04. Just trying to save you some hassle ;)
some games I tried are working, some do not... e.g. "Sir, You Are Being Hunted" do not want to start because I have older GLIBC version 2.15...( ./sir_v1.2: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /opt/GOG Games/Sir You Are Being Hunted/lib/ )

while Duke Nukem 3D runs OK...
but it is not a problem, I think that new Ubuntu 14.04.1 with automatic upgrade option from 12.04 LTS should be released soon.. I'm waiting for this, because I somehow hate upgrades, there are always some problems... :D
Finally...Thank you a lot! Hope some more older games get the linux support, FEZ for example ;)
Fantastic! I don't have to reboot into Windows only to play same games anymore.
Now if that can't achieve world peace, we are doomed !
Tolya: Rookeries aren't armed with cutting edge weaponry though ;) Hence I named it a "battalion" ;)
JMich: Some Argentinian penguins though are living in minefields. Not sure if that counts as "cutting edge weaponry" or not, but they are safe in the middle of the explosives.
For a moment I thought you were talking about people using Linux in my country... then I felt really dumb :P

ssokolow: Ahh, makes sense. I was about to point out a place that beat you to Litil Divil.

Also, given the iconography used by every other Linux-supporting vendor I've seen (Humble, Desura, etc.), wouldn't it make more sense to use a Tux silhouette as the Linux icon? It took me almost a whole minute of squinting before I realized that silhouette of a costume contact lens was supposed to be the Ubuntu logo.
JudasIscariot: I recommend leaving feedback about that via our official channels :)
This is awesome!
Thank you team for your effort. I know *nix world is fragmented and has many flavours so your hard work is highly saluted and respected.

JudasIscariot: I recommend leaving feedback about that via our official channels :)
ssokolow: Done.
Thanks :)
I wasn't expecting this already now.
Freakin' fantastic!
Matruchus: One recommendation change the simbol for linux version on the buy button to a penguin please it looks very strange now and its not recognizable.
cyboff: this^^
Use the feedback form like I did so they can clearly see how many people agree on this point.

Linux cleaning kit available :)
I'm very excited about Linux support, so thank you GOG. You are well on your way to eliminating the one advantage Humble had over GOG: Linux support.

I'm not doing too well on my Linux Gamble so far. I bought several games during the summer sale that I know have Linux versions else where, on the gamble that they would show up here.

Sir, You Are Being Hunted and SteamWorld Dig are on Linux. I'm still hoping for Rogue Legacy, Expeditions: Conquistador, Amnesia - A Machine for Pigs and the Penumbra Collection!

This is a huge step for GOG. Congratulations on the launch! Now, excuse me while I go buy some GOG Linux titles.
