As a reminder GOG also recently had a release of Days Gone, an open-world action-adventure game set in a harsh wilderness two years after a devastating global pandemic.

Be sure not to miss my quick-picks too:

The Halloween Sale on GOG lasts until November 1st, 10 PM UTC.

Don't forget to check out Heroic Games Launcher and Lutris for managing GOG games on Linux / Steam Deck.

Gladius is good Warhammer 40k stuff. Turn based Starcraft so you can take your time and enjoy your coffee or tea.

And it's one of the best running games on Linux I've ever seen.

The Blacksad game is quite good, though they might have overdone it a bit with the (sometimes not so) unexpected twists.

It had some minor technical issues with Proton when I played it, but nothing critical.

Firefox also struggled to load it for me. After 2 refreshes, the button appeared and I claimed it.

I honestly don't know how I've never heard of this game since it was released. First giveaway that got me genuinely excited.

I think it hasn't seen much marketing... I only noticed it during a sale too, and I would consider myself a fan of the comic series...

I can't get the Blacksad giveaway to load. I tried a few days ago and just shrugged, but still can't, no matter how many times I reload the page. (extensions disabled, cleared cache etc.). I don't have any Chrome based browsers and I don't want to.

I'm only mildly interested, but if I want this game I could get it for the full, exorbitant price of $20 on Steam. I couldn't buy it if I wanted to on GoG right now because all roads lead to the defunct giveaway (that's my point). I may look at it again some day, when I actually need a different game to play. I have games I could finish if I was bored, even.

Crap like this gives me the pox. It's Internet Explorer all over again now with the Chrome engine.
