GOG Connect adds more games, act quick

By - | Views: 11,456

If you want to grab a DRM free copy on GOG of some more games you have on Steam, act fast as GOG Connect has some more.

What is GOG Connect?

It's a way to link your Steam library with GOG, allowing you to grab an extra copy of your Steam games on GOG directly. It doesn't remove anything from your Steam library, but gives you a permanent copy to have on GOG too. It's a really sweet deal that costs you nothing.

Showing up for me now are:

  • Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs
  • Darkwood
  • Hand of Fate
  • Layers of Fear
  • POSTAL: Classic and Uncut
  • SOMA
  • Sunless Sea

A pretty decent selection of games to be able to move over! There might be more, depending on what you own on Steam.

Those games were added already a week ago when the Halloween sale started. The Halloween sale will end in ~10 hours, those games will probably disappear at the same time from GOG COnnect.

I keep checking daily for this; if it were possible, I would've liked to carry everything over to GOG.

It got me Observer but GoG doesn't have a Linux build for it yet.

Correct, but we have not covered it yet - now we have.

I made a Wine wrapper for Deadly Premonition, which is also available via connect atm (or it *was*... seems to have vanished there now for some reason).

There are also some other games you can claim on GOG if you have them elsewhere already, separately from Connect: https://www.gog.com/reclaim and https://www.gog.com/witcher/backup
(and of these games, I've also made Wine wrappers for the STALKER games and The Witcher

Do you have to have the games installed for it to pick them up? I own Hand of Fate on Steam, but it says "not found in Steam library".

You just have to own them and you need to set you Steam profile to "public". Also, you need of course to connect your GOG and Steam accounts for it to work.

All of which I've done, and there were three other games that did transfer.

A couple of those weren't installed either, so I have no idea why it won't recognize that one game.

It probably only works for boxed copies. I tried the Warband cd-key from steam (*not* steam key, but cd-key from the product page) and it said it was invalid.

Stalker games don't provide cd-keys via steam at all.
