Two interesting games are now available to buy DRM free from GOG. I know a fair few people love Crypt Of The Necrodancer and have been waiting for this.

Crypt of the NecroDancer is an award winning hardcore roguelike rhythm game. Move to the music and deliver beatdowns to the beat! Groove to the epic Danny Baranowsky soundtrack, or select songs from your own MP3 collection!

The DRM free release was delayed as the developers wanted it to have achievements, leaderboards etc that GOG Galaxy provides, but they caved in and removed them for the Linux version.

Good to see the game dev respond to feedback, but it should be another nod to GOG needing to bring out the Linux version of Galaxy sooner rather than later.

Buy it on here.

There's some local co-op in risk of rain, too :)

Risk of rain is an awesome game! It's a shame GameMaker games have a strong tendency to crash on Linux. On Ubuntu, whenever my Arch buddy would connect to me or vice-versa, either one of us would crash. Playing a perma-death game where it crashes can really knock out the fun.

That said, still worth every penny. Gameplay is extremely addictive!
