Hope this doesn't take too long. Can't complain, it's free...but would be fun to play it :P Hope it works on FreeBSD :)

3 GOG give aways in the last 5 days...which were reported here at least, it's the only way I ever find out about them. My GOG library keep growing, almost 40 games now and I think I only paid for like...2 of them...and probably at steep discount too. This is awesome! :)

I don't think Liam ever misses a native give-away. For all others I follow this thread. It's one of my forevertabs.

...and we're back for the 21st edition of the daily refresh of my GOG library.

That's F5 being pressed and the TCP packets are a go! We have SYN, we have SYN/ACK, final ACK! HTTP GETs are being made, POSTs are happening! HTML is getting ready to rumble! Here comes the JavaScript, it's running running running.... and CSS is rendering!

The results are in! We have a Windows version, no surprise there! We have a Mac port, getting close now, the audience is holding its breath... do we have a Linux port..? We do not! Repeat, we do not have a Linux port! The Linux port is nowhere close to the finish line!

Join us again tomorrow for another exciting round of what the hell is going wrong with Linux ports on GOG?

Yea, 7 days since your comment, I just checked and Linux build still not there. I know these guys' new baby is Art of Rally and they are probably working on more DLC for it which is taking most of their time, but would be so nice if they assigned one person to take some time and get the Linux build of Absolute Drift up on GOG so we can enjoy this free gift :)
