Three retro Disney platformers are now available on GOG and they come with Linux support: The Lion King, Aladdin, and The Jungle Book!

I absolutely love that GOG still has a good focus on bringing back classic games to the PC, and to have Linux support right away is awesome. I don't think I ever got to play these when I was younger, so to have a chance to do it on my favourite platform is something to be thankful for.

Hopefully GOG will get round to making all their Sierra collections (and other DOS games) Linux compatible! I know they all work on Dosbox already, but GOG providing official support for them will be a positive step for Linux gaming.

I did have to go into the game's dosbox conf file and change the output settings, I would have thought "overlay" would have been a better choice than the Dosbox default "surface" setting, at least my system reacted weirdly to it at showed me a corrupted screen to start with until I changed it.

I have fond memories playing Aladdin on my SNES back in the day. The fact that they have Linux support is awesome. I will pick them up at some point if there is a sale for half off.

Why would I pay for an old game that I can EASILY get for free. These aren't worth money anymore. I think I'll stick to my "illegal" ways for games of this nature.

I remember playing a demo of Aladdin and the Lion King back in the day, from the cover CD of a computer magazine (PC Format I think). At the time I found the game to be quite charming, and it could barely run on my machine and movement was quite slow.

Since the retail versions of these games were not sold anywhere near where I lived, I could only ever play the demo over and over until I got bored of it. It's interesting to be reminded of these games and I'd likely pick them up just for a look since they are for GNU/Linux... if the price was more reasonable.

I agree with everyone saying the price is too high. If all three games were AU $10 instead of AU $12 each, I'd be very tempted. But at AU $12 a pop, I think there's better ways to spend my time and money. I could get Near Death (released just a few days ago) for AU $17.71 for example, which I think would be significantly more entertaining.

But who knows, maybe when a good sale comes along the price will be right? I'm not going to infringe on copyright just to play them, so I just won't play them for now.
