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!
The GOG downloader is disabled for Linux. I do most of my downloading at work, which is on Windows. Any chance it can be enabled since the OSX version is still enabled for Windows users?
Very cool! I don't use Linux and probably won't until I have time to learn about it, but I'm glad to see GOG continuing to listen to the desire of its customers and the top of the wishlist. ;)

Now I want to hear some good news about a new publisher!
Excellent news! I don't use Linux myself (at least not yet,) but great to hear that Linux is finally supported for all those who do use it. Thank you GOG!
Lillesort131: By the way, does anybody else see a little triangle near "Don't Starve"?
Yes, I do.
Lillesort131: By the way, does anybody else see a little triangle near "Don't Starve"?
silviucc: Yes, I do.
Yes Don't Starve is Linux supported :)
Great, now I can finally grab some Linux versions to try on my home PC :D
RPM-based distro users: You can use 'alien' to convert a .deb to a .rpm, so the game installs can be managed by your package manager.
Great news! I don't normally comment on news online, but this is making me so excited! :)

It's perfectly understandable that you can only offer official support for Ubuntu and Mint, as there are so many different distributions. Thank you very much for offering generic tarballs for those of us who do not use one of the most popular distributions.

I'm looking forward to many more releases with Linux support. :) Keep up the good work!
Good timing, my vacations start this weekend ;)
Awesome !
Gret news guys

Keep doing the good work
Oh. and if you get anything from the sale here.....

Wow! Finally! Thanks a lot GOG!
WOOHOOO! YAY! Yippikayay! ... Thank you GOG for finally granting this wish. You have made me (and others) very happy today! on to deplete my poor wallet. Linux-Games ahoy!
Very pleased with the news!

I wonder why witcher 2 is not on the list. That was the one I was looking forward to try out on linux. Steam linux version is already out. I guess I have to wait a bit longer.
Is there a way to filter games in my library according to systems it's available on? That would make it easier to find those I can use on Linux.
