Posted by , | Views: 6,377

For those of you who prefer to shop on the GOG side of the fence, their Summer Sale Festival is now officially live and there's a lot of good stuff cheaper.

Some nice Linux picks currently in the sale:

Obviously there's an absolute ton more, just for Linux there's around 16 pages of deals on GOG.

GOG are also giving away Obduction for the next two days, while it's only officially for Windows and Mac those of you making use of Wine might appreciate the freebie.

They will also be doing flash-deals, with a new set of even cheaper games every day. GOG's Summer Sale Festival lasts until June 17, 10 PM UTC.

Oh, Bioshock Infinite came out on GOG?? I totally missed that. And no Linux version Virtual Programming messed it up again.

That's the trouble with third party porting companies that act as a publisher at the same time. And than there's always the danger that the ports are abandoned when the porting house folds (remember Loki).

That's the issue with Feral indeed, who can't stomach DRM-free stores, which they admitted themselves. But I'm not sure what the issue with VP is. They released The Witcher 2 on GOG in the past. May be they are also DRM obsessed, and TW2 was a special case since GOG is a sister company to CD Projekt Red?

Hmm, I thought GOG was simply a product, not a whole company.

It's a separate company, but obviously they are related.

I my point of view GOG messes things like this up.
If you can have a Linuxversion on Steam but not on GOG It does not seem to be the gamedevs fault.

Just my 2 Cents.

That Indienerds Collection looks quite nice.

There is a Banner Saga collection I almost bought because they are allegedly good games.
But after reading this I decided against it. https://www.gog.com/forum/the_banner_saga_series/linux_version

That's up to VP really. GOG said that much explicitly.
