You like Visual Novels, Anime and Manga right? Good, as GOG just added 10 that support Linux to their store.

Here's what they've added today, which are all discounted too:

Seems like GOG are really trying to position themselves as the anti-Steam, given how this has happened so recently after Valve started sending messages to developers about their games being removed.

Really good to see GOG expand some more, especially nice to see them have Linux builds ready right away.

I have a question, it may be a stupid one, but it's one I can't figure out: why do visual novels count as games?

Quoting: LeopardWell , it is just seemed like modding to me.

In the same sense as DLC being little more than official mods.

I suppose it's a computer variant of game books. You can make some choices which change the story.

Well, some don't let you make any choices, or meaningful ones. And others have more gameplay elements than just dialog options. It's kind of a fluid game genre.

Great... now GOG is going to become polluted with non-game "games".

The first two Sunrider titles qualify as games.

I would be much more excited about an actual Linux anime GAME. Tired of the many visual novels.

As has been mentioned, the Sunrider ones ("Mask of Arcadius" and "Liberation Day" ) are games. There is a sort of visual-novel-like thing happening that strings stuff together, but most of your time is in quite difficult turn-based space battles, and you control a squadron of ships which you get to upgrade in quite varied ways.

Quoting: hummer010Connect would be nice for these - I have both Fault games on Steam.

Well, i kind of understand why there is no Connect right now - GOG wants to benchmark public demand for such games. With Connect enabled there will be huuuge transfers on gog, but actual sales? Yet, i dont think connect will be impossible in future.
