GOG is having a big sale of its most wishlisted games

Posted by , | Views: 5,645

The DRM-free store is having a pretty good sale with a lot of its most-wanted titles being significantly discounted.

There’s a lot to parse as 150+ titles and DLC are on sale. In case you don't know where to start, here are a few of my personal picks of Linux games that are worth playing:

Some of you may have tastes that differ from my own impeccable picks. In that case, don’t worry! There’s a large variety of  games available on sale and it's more than likely that you'll find something that will appeal to you. When in doubt, make sure to check GOL in case we have a review or some thoughts on a game, it might help you decide if it's worth it.

This sale will be ongoing until April 23 so you have plenty of time to impulse buy whatever you like.

Please note that above links are affiliate links and GOL gets a little cut if you buy games using them.

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

Deadly Premonition
Deus Ex GOTY Edition
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Collection
STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl
STALKER: Clear Sky
STALKER: Call of Pripyat
SWAT 4 Gold Edition
System Shock 2
Total Annihilation: Commander Pack
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

[users-only]I posted this key for Deus Ex GOTY a while ago but it's still unclaimed:

EB[GREEN]F[VIOLET]-ADEF[YELLOW]-[GREY][BLUE][YELLOW][GREY][RED]-[VIOLET][WHITE]A[YELLOW][WHITE]

Wrapper link: Deus Ex for Linux

I woder if well ever see a system shock 2 foss reimplementation. That would be super sick.

Of my 47 wishlisted games only 5 are on sale... Either I have a really weird taste or majority of people have no clue about games. Will go for the latter just in case xD

Just picked up the soundtracks for the all of the Baldur's Gate games since it still counts as another Linux sale, as well as Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition. Beamdog ought to love me today. If nothing else though, I am helping to diversify the local economy. ;)

Am guessing the bulk of the users on gog went for new releases and probably windows only games

I think most of these would run happily under wine. 90% off old games, 8minutes left, LMAO

Thanks dude! I did not use your scripts yet but I had a look at them and they're pretty clean, straight forward but at the same time very advanced. I wrote some Wine-Prefix-Installer-Scripts myself, those always assume I already installed wine of the targeted system as well as other dependencies (since I got perfect control over these).

Nevertheless, did you consider to upgrade your scripts to make use of DXVK wherever it will benefit in better compatibility / performance in the future?
