Games

A while ago, we've announced our plans to add Linux support as one of the features of our digital platform, with 100 games on the launch day sometime this fall. We've put much time and effort into this project and now we've found ourselves with over 50 titles, classic and new, prepared for distribution, site infrastructure ready, support team trained and standing by, and absolutely no reason to wait until October or November. We're still aiming to have at least 100 Linux games in the coming months, but we've decided not to delay the launch just for the sake of having a nice-looking number to show off to the press. It's not about them, after all, it's about you. So, one of the most popular site feature requests on our community wishlist is granted today: Linux support has officially arrived on GOG.com!

Good on 'm.

... that GoG, as opposed to steam, has absolutely no copy protection (what is usually called DRM these days) and (almost) no regional pricing crap.


Not every game on Steam has copy protection. I can play Faster Than Light without launching Steam client. And I didn't bought FTL on Steam either. I just prefer to have save sync.

Steam's DRM free games


Which Steam doesn't let you to play if your account is not active anymore. See Steam TOS.

GOG doesn't have such restriction.
