Consoles don't really interest me. Although I have seen videos today from a preview of the 'Steam deck' from Valve. The most expensive version has a retail price of 650 USD, but it can do a lot. That is a seriously capable little game machine...until you hook up a USB dongle and connect a monitor, Ethernet, mouse and keyboard to it. Then it is a pretty decent Linux computer too. And you can still use the built-in screen when a second monitor is connected. It has the makings of a Nintendo Switch "killer", it does everything a Switch can do and then a whole lot more.

And of course, it will play GoG games with ease  :P

Even though I have been favoring GOG over Steam as much as possible for the past several years, my problem with the idea of the Steam Deck and GOG is that GOG has really been pushing for adoption of their Steam-like client, GOG Galaxy. Some features (such as multiplayer!) are locked behind its usage. But it doesn't support Linux. . .


P.S. there's a thread for Steam Deck here: https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=51571.0

Quake 2 RTX is free on GOG if you grab it within the next couple of days: https://www.gog.com/game/quake_ii_rtx



EDIT: I just saw that it only includes 3 levels from the shareware version. If you want access to all levels, you need to buy Quake II: Quad Damage (which is currently on sale for $3).

So it's more of a ray-tracing mod that requires you to own the full version separately.

Samorost 1 is now on GOG, and is currently free. I'm not sure if it is permanently free or if it's a limited time promotion.
...

It is permanently free.  It's even free on the Amanita Design website: https://amanita-desi...ames/samorost-1.html

FYI I've just merged all the "Latest [Platform X] Giveaway" threads into one. So this thread is now the place to announce any Steam/GOG/Humble Bundle/Epic/etc. game giveaways. And I would suggest that also includes any future games that show up on GOG Connect, even though I didn't merge that thread into this one, since it has some discussion that I felt should remain separate from this thread.

I haven't announced many of the Epic Games Store giveaways, but this week is a bit unique, so I figure it's worth mentioning. This week there are 3 freebies on Epic Games, including one called Kid A Mnesia Exhibition, which is an exploration of the art and music of Radiohead.

The other two freebies are more traditional games. One of them is a card game called Guild of Dungeoneering. And the other is a kind of platformer called Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna or Innitchuna... Not sure. The artwork appears to spell it "Innitchuna" but all the text descriptors spell it "Ingitchuna").

One of my favorite games from the DOS days. It's actually quite advanced for the period it comes from- one of the first I ever saw from Techland (Dying Light)

It seems there was a temporary issue with it. It's working for me right now.
