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

By - | Views: 12,528

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.

If anyone is even remotely interested into card based RPGs I highly recommend the Black Book demo. I'm over 10 hours into the game proper and am totally hooked. Reminds me a bit of Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, but with a strong focus on Russian folklore.

It's still a bit rough around the edges and could definitely do with a bit more polish, but in some ways being not perfect also adds to its charm.

They're affiliate links that go through a non-gog url first, I imagine you probably have an ad blocker or something preventing the links from loading before they redirect to the real urls.

Even though it's not the GNU/Linux version, and I do have it on Steam and Stadia, Tomb Raider 2013 is tempting me simply because I can back it up easily.

Been playing it in Wine the past 2 hours, no issues here :)

Never had performance issues with it natively, it's more that I'm increasingly wanting backups of installers for games that I might play again. GOG is of course good for that. I am curious however: is there any stuttering in new areas for shader compilation? That can be one drawback of going through wine (+dxvk).

I did have a few stutters in the beginning of the game, can't recall any stutter in beginning of new areas. It's been very smooth overall though.

Odd that GOG does not have price or discount as sorting options.
Wasn't ?pp=b2a10a6c3dcadb10c8ffd734c1bab896d55cf0ec your gog affiliate stuff?
I'm confused

I noticed you can strip away the adtracker and the link works just fine (it has the full gog URL in it). @Liam Dawe is there still a way for us to give you the affiliate purchase with the adtracker removed? All good if not, just thought I'd check because I'd prefer to support the site!

Anyway, thanks for sharing the sale, some really awesome deals and games on this one!

Basically GOG sold out there affiliates to a marketing company and now all affiliate links run through that company. Possibly more. From the 5 seconds I took to look at their site, I decided to block them because it gave me way too many red flags.
