Would even buy games from GOG but as long as there's no official Linux client, guess what GOG? All da monis go to Steam and Valve.

But honestly Lutris and/or other third party clients (Heroic Launcher, ProtonUp-Qt) are enough. The FOSS community is doing most of the work with WINE and third party clients, Valve is just aping the ability to combine it into a stable platform.

Really, third party clients are more in the spirit of GOG than an official client would be.

I like this line of reasoning, and to GOG's credit they have what looks like decent documentation.
However, I think that GOG could put some money where their ideals are at and sponsor a couple third-party clients. It wouldn't take much - on the order of 1k/month spread across different clients.
This would signal to customers that GOG is committed to user-freedom and reinforce their stances on "Owning the things you buy" and "... freedom of choice and a hassle-free experience."
Linux support would just be a bonus.

Heroic is very good. I just tried it the other day. I'm not personally a huge fan of the idea of 3rd party launchers, but I must say, between it and Lutris, they make Linux gaming very nice and easy.

TBH, given the quality of open clients, i wouldn't even call that a requirement anymore.
What i would expect at the very least is support and official endorsement for those clients though. Maybe through donations and/or API-adaptations that they might need.
Plus it needs to be easier for the Gamedevs to keep their repos in Sync - last i heard, it was WAY more effort to update a game on GoG than it is on steam - hence why many games that have a Linux-Version on Steam don't have it on GoG or lack timely updates for the linux build...

But as long as GoG basically scoffs at Linux and doesn't lift a finger, i'm out - as much as i would love to support DRM-Free. The fact that it took them several years to finally say 'not gonna happen' to the wish for a linux-galaxy speaks volumes...

I don't think the update issue is a thing anymore, but communication is something that GOG does not do at all. The best you can except is a “we're sorry that you have misunderstood us” after one of their regular mishaps.


GOG is clearly going the way of Galaxy integration is mandatory (for the developers), even if the users are supposed to be able to run the games without it. Recently there has been a completely botched Two Point Hospital release (Windows only) that had critical bugs caused by third-party work on Galaxy bindings.

I am pretty sure that GOG doesn't care at all if you spend any money on their site or not. Pretty much like Valve doesn't care at all that I doesn't spend any money on them as long as they forcing me to use their crappy Linux client...

If that is really the case you should contact the police!

Would be? Well, they already have an official client, it's called Galaxy... not supporting Linux of course.

And while I'm ok with third party clients for GOG, I'm still missing the dedication and commitment for Linux that Valve shows with Steam OS and Proton. GOG doesn't even try. And to say that third party clients fit GOG better sounds like making a shabby excuse for them to do nothing. According to their community wishlist, there are a lot of people complaining about the lack of an official Linux client.

I disagree. I do buy more from Steam, but GOG is my #2 storefront. At the very least it does sell Linux ports which is more than most of the PC storefronts / clients.
