Dungeons 2 is currently free on GOG and their sale is still going on

Posted by , | Views: 5,072

If you need a new game for the weekend, a quick tip here is that Dungeons 2 is currently free on GOG. Always nice to have another game to play, even better when you don't have to pay for it.

They also still have their own sale going on. During this sale, GOG has been renewing special "Flash Deals" every few hours that are limited-time cheap games, so it's worth keeping an eye on their store for what comes up.

I already did a highlight of some interesting games to take a look at on GOG recently, but here's a few more available on GOG that are likely worth a look. 

As a reminder, you can follow Linux games on sale on our Sales Page. Also GOG links are affiliate links.

I just started to play Shadowrun Hong Kong. These games are just so good. And the writing is a challenge to my English knowledge, by the way. The descriptions are rich and well written (as far as I can judge).

Games are great for language practice; you get immersed in everyday language for dozens of hours.

Reposting here as it's still relevant (and I updated all of my wrappers recently):

Older/classic games currently on sale on GOG that I've made Wine wrappers for:

Crysis
Crysis Warhead
Deadly Premonition
Deus Ex GOTY Edition (flash deal)
Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition
Freedom Force
Freedom Force vs the Third Reich
Hitman: Codename 47
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

The flash deals seem to be repeating fairly regularly so if you want Deus Ex or STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl you probably won't have to wait too long before they show up again

Do your scripts remain entirely contained? i.e. WINE does not take a giant shit on the filesystem/DE settings/libraries?

Even still, the only way I would try a community WINE wrap is if said game is absolutely gratis. I don't want any money going to tyrant developers.

Entirely contained. Adam's scripts are as close to playing a native game as you can get using WINE. I highly recommend checking them out.

They're also very tidy, easy to read & understand; so you can always edit them to your liking.

[users-only]Here's a key for The Witcher Enhanced Edition for whoever's fastest:

echo VGhlIFdpdGNoZXI6IGh0dHBzOi8vd3d3LmdvZy5jb20vcmVkZWVtL0NBTlg4Q1FVOFhUU0xXTkIK | base64 -d

It's been sitting out in the open on GOG's forums for ages but I guess everyone there has it by now.[/users-only]

GustyGhostDo your scripts remain entirely contained? i.e. WINE does not take a giant shit on the filesystem/DE settings/libraries?

They are prevented from polluting the system's menus and linking the user directories ("My Documents" etc) over, and nothing is installed system-wide by them. You can even put them on a USB drive or so and run them from that (which I often do when testing them on my other systems).

"Tyrant developers"? I hope you don't tolerate the use of DRM either, as that's *way* more "tyrannical" behavior...

Anyway there are tons of great games that will never see a native Linux release & would be a shame to miss out on. My approach is to only buy Windows games that are old & deeply discounted/cheap enough that a Linux port is likely to never happen and only if they're DRM-free. Full/high price purchase = must support Linux + DRM-free

On top of that, buying the System Shock games supports Nightdive, who are bringing the new System Shock game to Linux.
