GOG are having a little sale yet again, so let's have a look and see what good deals they have going for Linux gamers. It's crazy how often GOG and other stores have sales on, there's opportunities every single month to get good games at a discounted price.

Here's my top picks for games you should take a look at:

There's a good few more on sale, so do pop over to GOG if you're in the market for a new game. It's not a huge sale, but they've picked some really fantastic titles for you to grab. A good selection of RPGs, some adventure games and more.

Also, while it's not on Linux directly, Theme Hospital is 75% off which you can then use with the open source CorsixTH game engine.

Ps. Don't forget to regularly check our Sales Page, which tracks multiple stores!

Quoting: Guestjust picked up divinity

I still haven´t gotten around to playing that game. I really wanted to wait for "Divinity II" to be confirmed for linux porting, before I started playing the original.

It´s supposed to be really good though.

Its not. It mediocre game that thinks too much about itself. It is trying to be funny in a smug way, it has poor story, world building and dialogues. It is also quite linear game in similar way like Gothic (all enemies are preset and as even small level difference is quite significant for combat, a lot of areas are basically locked down).

The only + on this game is its combat system, which is great, dynamic and use a lot of skill combos by utilizing environment: oil can be lit on fire, pool of water or wet enemies can be frozen or are more conductive for lightning. Poison or poisonous gas is also explosive. Since you have a wide array of skill or items that can place all these things, you have quite a big freedom how to combat enemies and funnel AI into chokepoint using fire surface (or extinguish enemy fire with rain spell) and so on.

So it depends on why you play RPGs, if for their combat, you will like it. If for freedom, story and dialogues, its meh.

Also, this game tends to not explain any character building to you or all of its mechanics. Crafting is also a bit weird and some weapons or weapon combinations are inherently bad because you can't craft them and they are rare in loot or shops.

Tyranny is 32bit only? In this day and age of 64bit CPU's which have been around since fucking forever (well, over a decade).

Not anymore. They released it in 64-bit which fixed (or rather helped to avoid) a long standing and common lack of LFS bug of their 32-bit release:

While I like a good sale... The wallet is empty after the holidays. I came very close to passing on the Humble Monthly deal of Civ VI + 2 DLC for $12. After that, I need to wait a few weeks before getting anything else.

Can someone please tell me how I can get paid to play all of these games I've bought, so I can quit my job and dedicate my life to gaming? :P

I stopped playing Divinity due to the §$"§$! Rock-paper-scissors system. :-(
I hope the second part (if it gets ported) doesn't have that?

The initial release was 32 bit only, but since then the developer provided a 64 bit binary as well :)

I thought it was. In fact, it was the game that opened me up to turn-based combat games. What little experience I had previously left me a bit ... bored? Certainly not very interested. But, it should be noted that I'm not much of a "story" guy, preferring to get my narrative in movies and novels. I know that for some, CRPGs are first and foremost seen as a storytelling genre, and I can see how DOS might leave them a little flat. But I was thoroughly entertained, and that's what I play video games for. :)
