Three weeks after the previous retro Weekly Sale, GOG is celebrating another one with Linux supported games from the late 80's and 90's (mostly). This is the complete list:

- Disney's Aladdin (1993) (Action)
- Disney's The Lion King (1994) (Action)
- Disney's The Jungle Book (1994) (Action)
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (1992) (Adventure)
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1988) (Adventure)
- Afterlife (1995) (Simulation)
- LOOM (1989) (Adventure)
- Sam & Max Hit the Road (1992) (Adventure)
- The Dig (1995) (Adventure)
- Stunt Island (1991) (Simulation)
- Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders (1987) (Adventure)

As always, it's best if you take some seconds to check the previous customers' reviews, since there are a couple of titles with some complaints, though the majority of them are highly recommendable games that you shouldn't miss if you don't own them yet...

Some of the best adventures ever made for pennies. Insanely good deals.

WHOA!
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is 0.74USD?! WHY TF IS IT 1.40€ THEN? 0.74$ == 0.70€ >_>
Pit 1 Mar, 2017
I guess it should be 'reduced by 74%'? At least that's what I see on the page....
tuubi 1 Mar, 2017
So it seems. SangreDeReptil might want to fix the article. My point still stands, these adventures are well worth it.
Liam Dawe 1 Mar, 2017
I've adjusted the article. It's possibly you're seeing regional pricing, but to be clear I've removed the price mention.

Thanks for the information. I’d get LOOM as I remember reading great things about it back in the day, but it’s most likely a DOSbox wrap and I don’t want to spend hours fixing the config like I did for Pinball Dreams, and still end up with something I can’t play in fullscreen because it blocks alt-tab…

Says on the page it's powered by ScummVM. I imagine this is true for most of the LucasFilm/LucasArts titles since they've been well-supported by ScummVM for a long time.

The LucasArts adventures, including Loom, are using ScummVM instead of DOSBox.

The problem with this Loom release, though, is that it's the VGA CD talkie version, not the superior EGA version. The talkie version is using standard red-book CD audio for speech and a lot of lines are cut (likely because of size/time constraints).

Also, IMHO, the dither-heavy EGA graphics of the original floppy version look way better than the VGA graphics.

Loom is using ScummVM. I also recommend you finding FM Towns version. It has more of the story, but no voice acting. See http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/loom/loom.htm

It makes the story way more coherent, so you can play it in addition to voiced version.

Unfortunately GOG didn't mange to release it yet, but you can find it pretty easily if you need to.

Oh, thanks. I see that ScummVM 1.8.1 and up use SDL2, so there’s hope.
