GOG have something mysterious planned for December 1st

Posted by , | Views: 14,426
GOG are going all mysterious on us, with their Twitter account simply popping out a big teaser image for December 1st. Time to get our thinking hats on.

They sent this out without any kind of explanation:

What do you all think it is?

It could possibly be a new well known game being liberated from DRM, which they often tease out like this. This is most likely, since the image looks like it has some sort of claw (possibly a dragon).

It could also be some sort of christmas countdown event with games getting highlighted each day. This is easily possible and I believe (if memory serves me) that they have done something like that before.

It may even be the big "1.0" release of GOG Galaxy, which would be interesting as we might then finally get news of when it's actually coming to Linux.

Exciting, but I'm not getting my hopes up too high for it being Linux-related.

Not a Linux client i guess.If it was some of us should have heard or read something about that.

Evolve?

The development of Evolve is "finished". Turtle Rock Studios is no longer updating it.
So I guess this means it will never come to Linux :-( Though they have a filled Linux depot regarding to steamdb.

Yes, sir!

D00M! (Although it doesn't really fit the usual graphics).

You are right about the dragon part: it seems to be some kind of reptilian. But the way the "hand" is drawn, it's likely to be a biped. There seems to be a head in the background, but I don't recognize it.

To be fair, it's probably some windows only goodness. Maybe you should ask them if there is anything for us.

Witcher 3 for Linux? But jokes aside, possibly they are taking Galaxy out of beta, and they finally will be able to document its protocol, as they promised, so community would be able to start hacking on the FOSS client for it. I care about that way more than about their closed client for Linux that I'm not planning to use either way.

Folks on GOG forums found the original source:

Now what does that mean? Both are already out on GOG. I guess more D&D goodness coming.

It's surely not gnu/linux related since I don't see any point in hyping this specifically.

It's possible they got the original Never Winter Nights linux version bundled up nicely to work on modern distro's. It is possible, it works on my machine - Fedora 24. I don't think they would put that much effort into it though, they can't even properly bundle up their wine ports. I had to substitute their bundled wine for my system wine for Flat Out 1 and 2.

Seriously though the last thing GOG did that interested me at all was linking with Steam accounts so I could download non-steam linked installers for a few of my Linux games.
