The GOG Games Festival is live with new games and lots on sale

By - | Views: 12,527

It seems GOG have been watching what Valve are doing with Steam and they've announced the GOG Games Festival.

Today they've announced a bunch of new game releases, more upcoming games, games you can try a demo of and of course there's lots of titles currently on sale. From the press email, GOG mentioned they will be revealing and adding games on a daily basis, so you'll want to check back often to see them all.

As expected, lots of the new stuff is only supported on Windows, and they're missing native Linux builds for things that are already available on Steam like Tomb Raider GOTY. Plenty of our readers use the Wine compatibility layer though so plenty of it is likely still interesting for our readers.

GOG have a few interesting game lists to browse through for the sale including:

The GOG Games Festival which runs until September 2, at 1 PM UTC. Head over to GOG.com if you're interested in any. If you just want to see native Linux titles on sale here's the link for that.

Probably a privacy plugin or something blocking the affiliate links. Nothing I can do about that our end. In future please do bug reports in the forum.

Looks like a block on the adtraction.com domain, which is what the affiliate links run through now. I have it too (an ublock one anyway), but I added it on purpose.

Can confirm. There is an "adtraction" redirect on every link in your story but it is sneaky and doesn't show up on hover. My ublock kills the click (with good reason).

Okay fair enough, it's clearly problematic. Have removed the provided auto-linker for GOG and made our own using their properly branded domain which GOG was smart enough to make.

Not smart enough to make a native version of Galaxy

The link to Linux games only still goes through adtraction and does not show Linux games only... edit: or keep any filter, actually.

Have removed that link until some kinks with it are worked out. You will still see adtraction because they now run the GOG Affiliate program and we shall continue to use it. There's simply no other option now, all GOG Affiliates will be moved to it.
