GOG have another interesting sale going on as well as Freespace 2 going free for the next 48 hours, don't miss out!

If you're not aware, Freespace 2 can be played on Linux thanks to the FSOpen project after Volition open sourced the game engine used way back in 2002. Freespace 2 is also one of my absolute favourite space combat sims and it's still awesome to this day even when compared to some newer games.

Grab Freespace 2 free on GOG here.

There's also the big Interstellar Sale going on, with some good Linux games going cheaper like:

There is of course various DLC for games discounted as well.

The Interstellar Sale runs until September 30th, 2019, at 1 PM UTC.

Master of Orion 2 for 2€. That was the game that introduced my right arm to the concept of tendonitis.

Has anyone else been having trouble paying via PayPal at GOG? I have been trying to buy a game there for a couple days now.

Not yet, because I haven't tried paying via paypal since they fiddled with the checkout process, but I've read that several people had (or have) trouble.

I don't buy games terribly often at GOG but for what it's worth, I've only ever paid with Paypal with no issue (so far!). Must've gotten flagged for some reason?

Freespace (1 & 2) are games I keep meaning to give a proper play through. Even bought the first one for the Amiga. Never have gotten more than the Demo to load though....

Thanks for letting me know about FSOpen project, however it looks like a bit complicated process to use it.
Anyone tried the game just under Wine?

It seems you didn't bothered to read anything from the link posted, because setup is straightforward via knossos...

Thankfully on Arch/Manjaro you can just grab fs2-knossos from the AUR. Edit: Although I can't actually build that myself <_< errors with npm...
