Absolutely any excuse for a sale and since the Summer holidays are coming to a close, GOG have decided to do a back to school sale. Yes, nothing says school like buying more games.

I'm not complaining of course, sales are good for our wallets. At least this time around, what GOG have discounted does include some good Linux games!

Some picks for you of good games with a nice discount:

Plenty more of course, just random picks above of stuff I personally like. Lots of different genres and DLC going cheap. See the full list of Linux games currently on sale on GOG here.

GOG's sale runs until September 6th, 1PM UTC.

If you missed it, Humble Store also has DiRT Rally going free with their big sale and Two Point Hospital is free to try on Steam for a few days. All that and more in the previous article.

Quoting: KlaasI'm going to moan as well (sorry):
At the moment I'm really annoyed about the missing Linux versions on GOG, especially Overcooked 2, Megaquarium, Turok 2 and Dead in Vinland. The thing that bothering me the most is the complete radio silence on that subject. I think that I would have an easier time accepting the unfortunate situation if I knew the reason(s). It's so frustrating.

And on a different front: The long delay of the “Into the Breach” Linux version is getting to me as well. Every time I see the game on sale it's getting worse.

Yeah I was very disappointed in the case of Overcooked 2 too...
But It seems some linux users are kind of blind, as they think release Galaxy on Linux would resolve all of these issues... :|
It's kind of funny how some seems to don't want to talk about that.
I wonder what they'll say if/when galaxy is available and that linux versions will still be missing.

Galaxy have macOs support and yet there are still missing macOS releases for certain games.
What do you think mac users are saying?
Like I already said, Galaxy it's not the holy grail. I seriously think even with Galaxy on Linux, we would still have missing Linux releases.
In the era of Epic Store, which doesn't support Linux, I must admit I am still somewhat surprised people actually *want* another client. At least for GOG, you can download direct from the site or use Lutris or a number of other open source download/update tools for it.

I'm perplexed by this as well, and have stated so many times. The longer GOG remains Galaxy-FREE for Linux, the better. I know Steam is pushed pretty hard around these parts, but I never want to use a client, which is the main reason I still buy from GOG (despite their many flaws). Plus games being DRM-FREE of course, another great boon for them.

I'm not interested in clients. I just want the DRM-FREE binaries that GOG and others places offer. The only clients I am interested in are those like Lutris, Emulation Station and Gamehub so that I can configure them as I see fit.

Picked up 2 games - one for me and another for my wife. May GOG stay strong forever.

Try out GameHub. Merges GOG and Steam libraries and if you are using a Windows game in Linux, can leverage Proton, DOSBox, and ScummVM for non native games.
