GOG have joined in on the Early Access hype and have opened up their store to allow a few select titles in. They even offer a 14 day refund option for titles in development. This refund option is a no questions asked deal, which is pretty awesome.

Titles available
Starbound (-33%)
Project Zomboid (-40%)
The Curious Expedition (-15%)

TerraTech is also on GOG, but no Linux version on GOG currently. I guess they found issues during their testing, but who knows.

Now, hurry up with GOG Galaxy. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I'm confused.. Doesn't "GOG" stand for "Good Old Games"? How does early access factor into that?

Not that it matters, more stores selling newer games on Linux is always a good thing.

Yet no news on the Linux version of the Galaxy client...

They dropped that slogan a long time ago.

I believe they started as a service that sells old/classic games but eventually expanded to the full fledged digital distribution service.

Games like Xonotic, SuperTuxKart, Unvanquished, and 0 A.D. could be put on GOG as well now, right? They are all still under development.

I'm already not really interested by early access games, but without the Galaxy client... How do they handle updates? Incremental patches?

I have never had luck with the Linux version of TerraTech. The payload terminals simply don't work - they only present empty lists, no parts available - maybe the GoG testers experienced the same?

When a new game version is available, GOG puts both a new full version and a smaller patch for those with bandwidth constraints.

I personally prefer downloading the new full version every time, my laptop more often than not is without internet so I find it handy.

They would better release GOG Galaxy for Linux instead of adding new features. Now GOG Galaxy supports only Windows and that makes me sad. I have stopped buying games from them some time ago, since they seem not to care about Linux users. They started support Linux just because Steam did, IMO.

And about Early Access I don't think it's a good feature. I think these Early Access stuffs most of the times makes developers lazy and abandon development.

Yes, they should put their efforts in the Galaxy Client for Linux now. Otherwise they become less attractive. Especially if I see Games now, for which I need the Client to play them. Wonderful so we have DRM back on GOG too. Selfmade, ok, but still DRM :(

But I have to disagree with you on that topic. Sure that is the risk if you buy EA-Games. But don't blame all of developers for a few idiots. Most developers deliver what they have promised and still adding features and content to it after release.
