The GOG summer sale is now live

Posted by , | Views: 6,904

It's hot outside, meaning you all want to stay in and play games right? GOG have you covered with their summer sale.

We've once again teamed up with GOG with our own special summer partner page, where I've personally hand-picked some Linux games that are now on sale that I think you might be interested in. We may even be doing another giveaway with GOG later in the week, so stay tuned for that!

If you would rather ignore my picks and head right on over to see all their Linux games on sale, click here. There's a good few hundred Linux games on sale, so you're likely to find something interesting.

Also, Xenonauts is currently going for free for 48 hours, well worth a look if you're a fan of XCOM-like strategy games. You can also bag a copy of Sunless Sea once you spend a small amount too.

Finally, it might be worth taking a look at GOG Connect again to see if you can bring over any more games from Steam to get a copy on GOG free too—handy! Looks like a few good titles going right now like Prison Architect, FTL, Hotline Miami 2 and more.

Before anyone asks, there's no update on GOG Galaxy.

adamhmFallout 3: Game of the Year Edition

God damnit, we've been having issues getting fallout 3 to run stable in wine for a few days now. If this works well I wish I had found this before fiddling with it on my own...

adamhmAs usual, older/classic games currently on sale on GOG that I've made

How reliable are these Wine-wrapped games? I've never bought a Wine-wrapped game before, so I don't know what's involved, or how compatible they are, or how much setup I have to do.

I would consider buying some of the older ones that have no chance of coming to Linux (but I won't buy anything that may have a native port coming).

Any info is appreciated.

I can say from the experience of usage that adamhm's wine wrappers are excellent. So far, I have been able to get all of the fallout and stalker games to function using them, when I was unable to achieve success through other means. I am considering purchasing DA: Origins through Gog due to my confidence in adamhm's work.

These games are NOT Wine wrapped by default. These are scripts that contains certain Wineprefixes for certain games.

So ; if you buy them you would end up buying a Windows game , not a Wine wrapped game by default.
