GOG Connect: More DRM-Free Games For Steam Owners

Boffo!

GOG Connect is a pleasant little scheme from the DRM-free digital distributor, letting people who own certain games on Steam get GOG versions too for free. Now it’s back. GOG today launched another round of GOG Connect, with another seventeen games for Steamers to redeem. Because, y’know, it’s nice to have a DRM-free backup without buying a game twice. The lineup this time includes Hotline Miami, The Last Federation, the Shadow Warrior reboot, X Rebirth, and Teslagrad.

Oh, and GOG has launched another big sale too.

Armello DLC Not Coming To GOG Version

This fella? Not on GOG.

Canny readers swagger up with a sneer to boast they’re not falling for it: “Rock, Paper, Shotgun hasn’t really been ‘PC gaming since 1873’. That’s not true. I’ve caught you out.” They’re right, of course – ‘RPS’ is a cheeky act of positive spin. In truth, we started in 1872 as Rock, Paper, We’re Getting On With Kieron Just Fine Okay. Following the inquest, we rebranded to Rock, Paper, Shotgun and found the cool edge we’d lacked.

The version of Armello [official site] sold on GOG is now called Armello DRM Free Edition. What that means is DLC released on Steam isn’t on GOG. Positive rebranding!

Disney’s Aladdin, Lion King & Jungle Book Hit GOG

“A whole new world!” sang Aladdin, trying to get his leg over. That was 1992, though. Since then, we’ve decided we don’t want new things; we want old things repackaged in a way that excites us. So flipping heck, flaming Nora, and stone the crows – Disney have brought a trio of ’90s platformers based on their animated movies to GOG. You can now once again get Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book, this time handily packaged for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Space Sim Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles Hits GOG

I can’t say I’d even heard of Parkan: The Imperial Chronicles, but some folks seem awfully excited that the Russian space sim/FPS/RPG from 1997 is now on GOG – and in English for the first time. I am certainly interested in gems we missed here in the UK during the years we got our games in boxes from shops, when we rarely saw games from Russia and Eastern Europe. A game where you can do the usual merc-o-pirate sandbox space stuff, go on foot in FPS action, and build colonies… I’m interested!

Kenji Eno’s Horror Cult Classic D Makes Digital Debut

Dr. Richter Harris is a bastard. Not because he’s the mass murdering bad father of survival horror classic D [wikipedia page], but because he truly scared the life out of me when I was 11 years old. Released originally for the 3DO in 1995, D made its way onto European and North American consoles (and MS-DOS) in 1996. I played it the following year and, having missed the original Resident Evil the first time round, D was my first proper taste of the horror genre – one that’s stayed with me ever since.

Now, some 21 years on, the late Kenji Eno’s seminal works has appeared on GOG and I think you should give it a bash.

GOG Connect: Add Steam Games To Your GOG Library

“You own the games, so why buy them more than once?” asks GOG Connect’s tagline, which totally seems fair enough. GOG Connect, you see, is a new initiative from the CD Projekt Red-owned distribution platform that allows users to add some DRM-free Steam games to their GOG libraries. Find out what it’s all about after the drop.
