Good news GOG fans, Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition is now officially available on GOG with Linux support right away.

It's 32bit only, so as per usual for GOG it needs these additional libs to be installed:
Quotelibc6:i386 libasound2:i386 libasound2-data:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxau6:i386 libxcb1:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libxdmcp6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxinerama1:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxrender1:i386 libglu1:i386


It's good to see GOG continue to boost up their Linux compatible library.

About the game
Set out on a grand adventure in this turn-based, retro style, pixel-art RPG, inspired by the great titles of the 90's. Take on the roles of in-game players taking on the roles of their characters in a traditional pen and paper RPG session in the ultimate meta roleplaying experience.

As both the playing characters AND the game master, players can choose which battles to fight. Put together a bunch of monsters to make for a challenging fight and your efforts will be equally rewarded!

Choose from multiple classes, such as knights and mages, pick your characters to control those classes, like grandma or kid brother, and take on loads of quests, monsters, items and equipment littered throughout Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition. Blacksmiths, enchanters, mining, gathering, hidden treasures and a whole lot more await, giving players a lot of room to personalize their gameplay experience.

Don’t wait any longer, the Pen & Paper world needs you!

In Slightly Related GOG News:

Today they have added the Mac + Linux builds for FORCED: Showdown, Including all DLC's. :-)

I am a bit curious about this game, I tried it, but never figured out how we were supposed to play it.
Is it for playing with friends? Like a RPG but computer assisted? In that case the game master doesn't have enough planning or freedom, I think.
Or is it for playing alone and choosing your enemies, etc? In that case, wo_hoo. It would just be boring, I think.

So, I am genuinely puzzled, can someone enlighten me?

You chose enemies you fight after you complete all quests it becomes boring because only interesting part was reading game masters comments and pop cultural references. At the end game becomes grind fest that's why I did not finish it.

It's a fun game and I think I have about 30 hours in it. Where it really shines though is on mobile. Perfect for 10 minute gameplay sessions.
