The GOG winter sale is officially here, with plenty of Linux games and a giveaway

Posted by , | Views: 10,136

GOG have officially unwrapped a present in the form of a winter sale which comes with a free copy of Full Throttle Remastered for a limited time.

Additionally, if you spend at least $15/£11.79 they will throw a copy of EVERSPACE your way which is an excellent game. On top of that, at 2PM UTC every day they will have new daily deals which will have bigger than usual discounts.

I had a little browse and found some interesting deals for you:

There's obviously a lot more, those are just a simple taste of what's on offer and available on Linux. If you know someone after a new Linux games, you can also quickly point them to our collection on GOG.

Finally, for those of you with an account on Steam and GOG, their GOG Connect is back with a bunch of new games for you to redeem a copy on GOG if you own them on Steam. For me it showed a few Shadowrun titles, Trine Enchanted Edition and more.

See the full list of what GOG have on sale for Linux here. It lasts for three weeks, with time up on January 3rd.

Got all of the Shadowrun trilogy through GOG Connect. Thanks GOG! Currently playing a bit of Dragonfall in between Nier: Automata, The Long Dark and of course Dark Souls.

Getting Full Throttle free was a nice surprise. I remember finishing it in one sitting on a friend's computer back when it first came out. (It was a Pentium 90 which I envied thoroughly. I think my own machine was a 486DX4-100 at the time.)

I got Red Strings Club last Steam Sale and one late evening I though "let's just give it a quick go and see what it's about" and I got so hooked it kept me awake until early morning and I finished the game in one sitting

Why don't you post it to github, so that it's easier to bookmark/follow/download/etc? I get very discouraged every time I see someone trying to maintain a comprehensive info as a forum post.
