GOG have expanded their Linux DRM free game library again. It's a pretty good selection of games this time around too!

Interstellaria
Command a fleet of vessels wandering the galaxy for adventure and profit! You’ll be forced to make tough decisions as you face hostile starships, crippling space anomalies, and intriguing aliens. When your fleet faces certain doom, should you direct your crew to make critical repairs, or report to their stations and boost your fleet?

Breach & Clear
Build your Special Operations team, plan and execute advanced missions, and own every angle.
Choose your real-world squad -- US Army Rangers, Germany's KSK, Canada’s JTF2, UK SAS, and more -- and take on a variety of foes with different skill-sets and abilities. Learn to approach, engage, and dominate your opponents through superior tactics and training.

Breach and Clear: Deadline - Brand new game, only just came out
A deadly new breed of human monster is on the rise, and it’s up to you to stop the infestation before it spreads. Breach & Clear: DEADline is the all-new follow up to Breach & Clear, the critically acclaimed and commercially successful hybrid tactical strategy game. The game gives you real-time control over a squad of four elite Special Forces tasked with tracking down information on the source of the infestation.

Note: We will have some thoughts up on Deadline shortly, as it's a new game and GOG gave us a key.

Call of Cthulhu: Prisoner of Ice (DOSBox)
Amid an atmosphere of suspense and intrigue you'll launch your voyage in the icy cold wastelands of the Antarctic aboard a Royal Navy submarine - the H.M.S. Victoria. As an American agent of the Office of Naval Intelligence, your mission is to thwart a Nazi plot and recover top secret cargo. Horrific creatures capable of shifting the balance of world power must be conquered. World War II looms ahead and your every move could change the course of history.

Call of Cthulhu: Shadow of the Comet (DOSBox)
You'll take on the role of John T. Carter, a brilliant young astronomer, piecing together the puzzling history of the village and its cryptic inhabitants. Incredibly realistic action and supernatural chaos intertwine to draw players deep into the puzzling mysteries within the Shadow of the Comet.

TIS-100
TIS-100 is an open-ended programming game by Zachtronics, the creators of SpaceChem and Infinifactory, in which you rewrite corrupted code segments to repair the TIS-100 and unlock its secrets. It’s the assembly language programming game you never asked for! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

There are some more games regarding the stories of H.P. Lovecraft. Which one are you referring to? Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth? The games available on GOG are adventures, but also as you've written very famous and good though. :)

GOG really needs to get the Galaxy client going, steam has made me lazy.
Installing and updating games manually just seems like such a chore now.

They also need to change their refund policy to match Steam. Before the change, I would buy games on the Humble Store preferably in order to get both the convenience of Steam and a DRM-free download should the need arise. Now… I can’t see myself buying a game anywhere else than on Steam, unless that game has a demo.

When the manual way is kept there should be no problem. From my side there is no need to get a client for this and I want update the software myself whenever needed.

What is missing in their refund policy?

See for yourself: http://www.gog.com/support/policies/gog_user_agreement

They only accept refunds if you have a technical issue, and I guess if you are not using one of the exact two distros they officially support they’ll refuse.

So you await from GOG that they introduce DRM to measure how long you have played your game? GOG has a 30-day Refund policy and steam only a 14-day with max 2h playtime.

Nice article, but may be you should extend it by games which GOG hasn't released this week. There we have NOT on GOG but on Steam:
- Cities in Motion Collection
- Metro 2033: Redux
- Metro Last Light Redux

That makes sense to me. If you don't have technical issues, why should they refund you? I can understand cases "I bought a wrong game by mistake", but it's very easy to abuse. If I were GOG, I'd make exactly the same refund policy as they did.
