Join us on the Linux Gaming community on Lemmy, the federated open source alternative to Reddit.

Are you in need of a new game but don't have a lot of cash? GOG are here to save your week with a rather early sale for St. Patrick's Day.

Their selection of Linux games on sale this time isn't huge, so here's five random picks of games that I believe are good and worth your money and attention:

They're also doing a mystery hat deal, where you pay £2.29 and you end up with a random game. Not that such a thing makes sense for Linux gamers, since it may give you Windows-only games. You can see the full list here and the GOG sale ends March 19th.

You can also hop over to our Sales Page to see all sales from GOG and more!

Only if there were more worthy games at GOG… and Linux support was a bit more serious.
And above all, the fiasco with Witcher 3 didn't happen.

Strange. I thought W3 was a success. Not up to the scale of "Fallout 4", but a success nonetheless.

Yep, not a fan of GOG. Wish more companies put there stuff up on Itch.io to buy to be honest. Is what it is though.

Edit: I believe he means it being advertised as coming to Steam Hardware as advertised on Steam's site way back, and then never being released for Linux.

Thanks. I've been curious about this game since they gave it away for free awhile back.

Ah! Now I got it. Well, as it have been said, that were Steam's (Valve's) and CDPR's problems. GOG has virtually nothing to do with that scam. Not that I am defending GOG, it has lots of problems: Galaxy ("In Progress"™, yeah!), support ("Use Ubuntu"™), missing Linux versions (this one, I suspect, is partially related to some Valve secret agreements with developers/porters, Feral™ in particular). But these are no excuses for outright bashing GOG for others' blunders.

Itch.io… It is good, but it does allow Steam-keys "releases" which makes it hardly any different than "IGN Bundle" Inc. Plus, it does not have regional pricing which is a huge con for me. :(

No , Feral's and VP's ported games are not on GOG store with Windows form at the first place. So there is nothing shady on there , Feral and VP can't override the policy of publisher / IP owner company.

Well, that is true, I admit. But their answers on the matter (during Reddit AMA) were dodgy at best. And their Mac port of "Tropico 4" is not on GOG (or any place apart from Steam) either.

I think he is referring to the promise of witcher 3 for linux that turned out to utter bollocks as they stopped working on it because their feefees got hurt because witcher 2 was unplayable at launch and they got called on it.
