DRM-free store GOG has launched a huge Spring Sale with thousand of games going real cheap. They've also put the Witcher Goodies Collection on a 48 hour giveaway which has art, books, soundtracks and such (no games in it).

They've sorted out a bunch of big collections for this sale like:

You can also build your own bundle from Beamdog, 1C Entertainment and Deep Silver.

XCOM 2 also released on GOG today, sadly only for Windows. I spoke to Feral Interactive, who ported it to Linux and they told me today "We do not have any plans to distribute our games through GOG. If this changes, we'll make announcements through our usual channels.". A real shame, so if you want Feral's Linux ports it's Steam only.

See all the deals over on GOG.com.

The GOG Spring Sale runs until March 30th, 2 PM UTC.

Yes, it's likely a combination of those reasons. Feral being pro-DRM and not willing to handle their own site sales, GOG not willing to help such publishers get their cut and etc.

Feral are not "pro-DRM". Please stop saying such things. There is a stupidly massive difference between only releasing via Steam, and wanting to stuff DRM into games. Last I checked, there's no such thing like Denuvo inside of any of Feral's games. They rely on Steam itself, yes, like many other games - typically for networking, achievements, and so on.

They are pro-DRM, it was mentioned by many people already. Just because they aren't pro crazy DRM, doesn't mean they are not pro DRM in general.

Once I'll see their games in DRM-free stores, I'll agree they aren't pro DRM.

You're the one mentioning it so much. Feral have never said anything on the matter, other than that GOG is unsuitable for them. Seriously, your words overshadow any valid points you might otherwise make - and that's not good for discussions.

I'm not the only one. I like to bug DRM proponents to release DRM-free, so you'll see me mentioning it again. Don't think Feral will get of the hook on this.

You might do more harm than good by spouting false information however. It doesn't look good, and doesn't encourage Feral to engage at all.
I've nothing against wanting their games on other distribution platforms (GOG in this case). I'm not even against mentioning it every chance you get. But misinformation, that I'm against.

No one stops Feral from publicly saying they are not pro DRM. But they don't. They are scared to make a stand, because they are dealing with many DRM inclined publishers. That alone makes them pro-DRM already.

Strawman argument. It's like saying they're not viciously stating the Earth is round, therefore it makes them flat-Earthers. Obviously an illogical statement.

I'm going to stop here. Anyone else reading will have gotten the point already, which is what I'm more concerned about than anything else.

It's a simple argument. Developers and publishers who are not pro DRM have no problem publicly saying so. And actions speak better even. So again, Feral will be seen as pro DRM, until we'll see their games in DRM-free stores.

Gentlemen, you are derailing the thread!

It is about GOG's sale, not Feral's folly.
