GOG Has More Linux Games Added To Their Collection

By - | Views: 12,345
GOG has been building up their library quicker and quicker, and thankfully some recent games added are on Linux now too. Come take a look!

As usual the games are easily downloadable and fully DRM free.

Tetrobot and Co., a demanding yet accessible puzzler with all the cuteness of its spiritual predecessor Blocks that Matter.

Blocks That Matter
Blocks that Matter is a function of puzzle-platforming multiplied by Tetris and Minecraft.

Mark of the Ninja: Special Edition
Mark of the Ninja is the sneakiest one-of-a-kind stealth platformer that you’ll never see coming. It's one of the few indie games that actually hooked me for the interesting stealth based game-play.

Crystal Caves
Crystal Caves is a colorful game with arcade-style gameplay, puzzles and graphics. As Mylo Steamwitz, you'll enter cave after cave of adventure, gathering the treasures of each, while evading hazards galore!
Quite an old game now, and it looks like a Dosbox version.

Kingdom Rush
A popular and highly rated Tower Defence game that hasn't been on Linux for long!
Get ready for an epic journey to defend your kingdom against hordes of orcs, trolls, evil wizards and other nasty fiends using a vast arsenal of towers and spells at your command!

We also now have a GOG importer for our Sales Page, so be sure to keep an eye out there for the latest deals!

It will be interesting to see the uptake of GOG Galaxy when it release since it will be optional unlike the Steam client. The convenience of having games auto updated is great.

I also wonder when GOG will added the Linux version of The Witcher 2 to their collection. The game still isn't up to scratch yet, so I imagine it will be quite some time. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Good to see them catching up on current games. I hope they'll eventually break the wall with Disney, Activision and EA regarding old games as well. Quite a number of great games are still missing in their library (Loom, Full Throttle, VtM Bloodlines, Neverhood and others) which can be released for Linux in ScummVM / Wine.

Quoting: stan
Quoting: muntdefemsThat's quite true, but I sincerely think it's the developers' job to promote their games and that they cannot (and shouldn't) delegate this crucial task to Valve.
I wouldn’t qualify new Linux releases appearing in the new releases for Linux list "promotion"… It’s just the way it should be.

Yeah, I agree with that. I don't expect Valve to go out of their way to promote these games. I just think it should be a lot less hard to actually find them in their store. The only way I've found to relatively conveniently find them is to either have been subscribed to a "Port to Linux please" topic on the Steam forums or by following @SteamDB_Linux on Twitter (which I incidentally just learned was set up by project lead of Spacebase DF-9, JP LeBreton of Double Fine).

The walls of Disney and Activision regarding their classics certainly seem a bit less impenetrable lately.

Oh, and I only now realized that this is all way off-topic. Sorry about starting this Steam discussion in a GOG article. More on topic I bought CLARC (http://www.gog.com/game/clarc) on GOG last week and I think it's really good. Haven't gotten very far yet though.
