GOG have done it again folks, Prehistorik 1 & 2 which are both games from my childhood have been published on GOG and both support Linux.

I've tested them both (thanks again GOG team), and both work flawlessly. As usual you have both the .deb downloads, and .tar downloads for everyone else. I much prefer the .tar downloads myself, as a simple extraction into my games folder to run it is nice. I love the little message at the start of Prehistorik 2:

I played the original on my trusty old Amiga and wow this has me feeling heavily nostalgic. These games are from the time that I used to adore platformers, and GOG are making me fall in love with them all over again.

About (Official)
Prehistorik, a member of the T-Bone Tribe, is hungry and ready for a bronco lunch! Armed with Diner-Club, his faithful frazzler, he sets off on his food-spotting expedition. Follow Prehistorik from the unexplored ice-fields of Antarctica, the darkend mysterious caverns of the shady continent to the lush jungles of the Tropics.

omg i loved so much this game! How are these games working on linux? The devs are developing them or are they using emulators?

@Spitzkrug, considering that screenshot, it is a DOSBox, an emulator.
