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!

*what I meant was: if GOG itself is porting those games, and they have the chance, PLEEEEAAASEEEE.... avoid wine. there are native ports out there (neverwinter nights, gemRB for the infinity engine games, etc), and they already work, so, don't just wrap a wine install and go
JudasIscariot: We're not a porting company like Aspyr or Loki so we don't make native ports :) We just work to make games run on the two supported distros :) All the Linux native games come from our partners :)
hedwards: And unfortunately, in many cases it's not even possible due to the lack of available source code. So, even if you were a porting company, many of these games wouldn't be portable anyways.
well, for starting, lest me say that it's great to know that you guys behind GOG actually read the forums and listen to your customers....

next, well, I know the porting actually comes from the developers and not the distributors.... but there are many old games in your catalog (some of whose developers may not be around anymore), and i'd LOVE to see some of them ported to linux. I do know that some of them will have to run through wine, but, for the ones that actually have native clients or ports*, please, try to get these to work instead of just wine-wrapping everything.

*as i said before, e.g. neverwinter nights or the infinity engine games (gemRB).

(referring to the first quote) I mean, porting as in *making them work*. I know you can't take a random game and write a native linux port. but you can look around for a native port/client instead of just wine-wrapping it. and encourage the developers to actually write native ports instead of just wine-wrapping everything.
may i say: 'was about time! and thank you very much... .tar.gz to me is close to the best distribution format (well only beaten by an ebuild).
I don't use Linux but these are great news. I hope it will make GOG stronger and more competitive!
That's a great news! Thank you GOG!
Thank you so much! As a dedicated linux user for more than a decade I'm delighted to finally be getting some games.
jalister: What are some of the games you are running on Arch? I've been planning to install Arch on one of my computers to get more experience with Linux.
xeniac: Hi!

From the Games: i own Hammerwach and CLARC
I also bought Darwinia, Multiwinia and Uplink from Introversion years ago, they also run fine.
And then i own many steam and Humble Bunde games, they also run smooth under Arch.
Thanks. Good to know. I'm looking forward to playing with Arch.
Neat, I was just browsing the Pinball Gold Pack game card and noticed that Deunan and Briareos from the Appleseed manga/anime are in the game:
Congrats on getting it out GOG!
Thanks GOG!

Now fellow Linux users.. put your money where your mouth is! I know I will.. :)
really great news!
Cool stuff! Have a good gaming week, Linux people!
I'm just happy because maybe (*MAYBE*) now people will shut up about it.

More likely, though, they'll just go right on moaning about how the one game they want isn't supported on Linux yet, and they'll not buy ANYTHING ELSE until it is.
mkell_226: I'm just happy because maybe (*MAYBE*) now people will shut up about it.
May be if your platform wasn't supported, you'd also ask to add such support. What is there to be upset about? Giving more choice is better.
Congrats Linux people! :)
I like Thanks you very much.
