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:

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!
Developing "Gog Galaxy 2.0" for Linux means, instantly compatible for all OS!
For the same job, more compatibility for the future, and less BUG to manage.
Then why didn’t we do that?

I contacted developers to ask them why your native Linux games sold on GOG, only have the Windaub version!
They said they did not have the human or financial resources to do it!
I concluded that the packaging of had to be done by the developer of the game.

My personal opinion. GOG does not know the benefits of using Linux!
GOG sells bonus Linux products, it does not participate, unlike Steam.
Or the application that works very well on my Linux Mint.
But I continue to support them with their DRM Free games.
Why is linux good? It looks exactly the same as windows just way less games supports it.
ASHLIIN: Why is linux good? It looks exactly the same as windows just way less games supports it.
Surely you jest.

Tell me the attached image is anything like Windows.

Linux is about freedom. Not Gratis, but Libre. You have choice, control, power, and the ability to make of it exactly as you will. If I feel like using one desktop today and then another tomorrow, I can do that without having to painfully reconfigure anything. If I decide I don't even want a desktop, I can very well do that too.

Linux is good because it gives the user a chance to be a powerful magician. Or just like me, a commonfolk who was tired of the cathedral, and so went to the bazaar.
ASHLIIN: Why is linux good? It looks exactly the same as windows just way less games supports it.
I discovered Linux, by a temporary need, only possible with Linux, a chance!
I stayed on Linux, to save time.
Fast, Stable, Virus Free, Unnecessary Defragmentation, Freedom on Updates, Easy to Use.
There are still many other reasons... many...

But let’s talk games, they are not threatened by OS Linux Update.
Microsoft Update can be mandatory regressions, which makes the older games incompatible.
_Yes a well developed games will not necessarily be ported to Linux.
_A Linux native games, will be a good quality game, light, fast, it is a good for Windows too.
_A badly done game (Proprietary API) will not work on Linux and will be an accumulation of bug fixes on Windows.

To answer your question :
I prefer to have an OS that works properly, and have fewer games.
I prefer the quality!
We cannot understand how good it is without having tasted it.
