Volgarr the Viking for me. $12 for $3, but not something I see myself playing any time soon. Oh well. It was a cup of coffee.

I also got Halfway. Genius marketing, it's worth a shot for $3, but I'm not sure they're going to get many multiple tries.

Got "Halfway" too with my first Pinata, then I went for a second one and got "1954:Alcatraz" ($19.99), an adventure game.

Dark eye: chains of satinav, redshirt and hot tin roof: the cat who wore a fedora out of three pinatas.  About 50 bucks worth, but i am not particularly interested in playing any of them.

This place is all nostalgia for me... got old Tex Murphys and Gabriel Knights. Not much else except adventures like that. I go to Steam for those newer Unity RPGs, which is about all I'm interested new on PC (I'm a shameless Xbone owner, for anything else).

GOG launches its own version of early access, called "games in development".

http://www.gog.com/news/introducing_games_in_development
https://www.gog.com/support/support_view/games_in_development_faq#en

Now, beside being for or against the concept of early access, the GOG approach has a nice twist: the 14-day refund policy doesn't include any max. playtime you mustn't surpass (for Steam is 2 hours, I believe; you go past that and they will deny your refund request). Also, but that's always been the case with any GOG title, you can download and keep the games.

Too bad one of those games is Starbound, which seems to only do fairly anemic stable updates approximately once or twice a year.

I don't like platformers but feel I got my money's worth out of Starbound. I intentionally got in early, because I like Terraria before they added too many platformer elements.

I also liked both games in low resolution so I could, you know, select the blocks and see things on the tv 10' away; but I found I hit a point in Terraria where not being able to see as much of the screen as I could in native resolution was negatively impacting my ability to play (bosses and stuff that could shoot you from off screen).

To be fair, Starbound allegedly only has one more update before 1.0 and it's unstable branch is being worked on pretty regularly, so we do know at least that the devs haven't taken the money and fucked off à la Earth 2066, Journey of the Light, Stomping Land, etc.  I'm not sure if I'm on board with the whole "in development" thing, but it looks like Gog is putting more work in to keeping it legit than Steam is at least.

Oh, sure, there are many, many more projects which are far shittier.  That, however, is one of the reasons I even give a fraction of a shit about Starbound.

They have a linux variant, too, in contrast to Terraria which requires me to spin up a W2012 server.  So close, yet so far.

https://www.gog.com/news/preorder_day_of_the_tentacle_remastered

Quote
Now, over twenty years later, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, with remastered audio, music and sound effects (which the original 90s marketing blurb described as ‘zany!’)

Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart's desire. We’ve also included a concept art browser, and recorded a commentary track with the game’s original creators Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian.

Day of the Tentacle was Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game's original creators.

- 100% new hand painted, high resolution artwork
- Switch on the fly between classic mode and remastered mode
- Remastered high quality voices, sound effects and music, with emulated “iMuse” style dynamic music
- Choose between two remastered music modes: modernized, re-voiced music, or classic music which sounds just like it did in the 90s
- Concept Art Browser
- Highly customizable user interface and experience, with mix and match options for old and new play styles - play with the verb bar in remastered mode, or the new verb dial in classic mode
- Commentary track with original creators: Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian.

Game within a game: Includes full playable version of Maniac Mansion!

I have roughly a month to find a deep dark cave to hide in before my wife sees our credit card bill. Got Pillars of Eternity, Lords of Xulima, Democracy 3, Reus, Serpent in the Staglands, Runestone Keeper, and some others (free game was The Wolf Among Us). All in all, not too bad but I'm sure I'll be hearing about it.

GOG Connect:

https://www.gog.com/connect

This will allow you to import (certain selected, and in "waves") Steam games to your GOG Library/Galaxy Client, something I hoped  would happen sooner or later. Note: Your Steam library won't be affected.

Personally, I'm gonna take advantage of that because I prefer the GOG galaxy client to the Steam one, no matter the "shinies" of the latter; plus, as you know, you can download a DRM-free copy of any game of your GOG library.

It also has implications with the "Steam family" feature: you purchase a game you're regularly playing on Steam, your wife/kid/friend  wants to play/try it out too during your "videogaming" hours, so you can give him/her access to your GOG account with the same game, without spending another dime.

P.S. Right now GOG servers are experiencing some difficulties :P

I would far rather get games from Gog over to Steam. The gog platform is effectively bloatware. As in anything over 0 bits is being forced on me for VERY few games.

I have 400+ games on Steam. Of the possibly things it could have grabbed, it mostly grabbed garbage. Now, granted, they have lots of shit they likely don't have the license for to do this, but it's really a strong display of how poor the Gog catalog is overall.

I like this move, but I don't know how much it helps Gog.  Once upon a time they had a pretty distinctive library, but now that Steam is allowing every basement studio to release whatever they want, a lot of the stuff which would previously maybe have been Gog exclusive is showing up on Steam.

Galaxy itself is kind of weird, I had originally thought it was going to be like their version of Steam with achievements and social features and stuff but it's way, way behind Steam and Steam is accelerating. 

I love Gog and really wish them the best but I am kind of worried about their place in the market now that Steam is basically "everything you get on Gog plus more stuff".  Linking their library with Steam is a nice start and a neat quality of life feature but it doesn't really fix the fact that the only people Gog appeals to these days are nerds like me who are worried about still being able to play Darksiders from our bomb shelters after the robots take over.

Eador: Genesis (the first of the Eador series) is free for another 32 hours.

Worth it if you like turn-based fantasy strategy games.

The sequels are on sale, but are buggy re-skins of the first game based on the comments.

I believe I had a technical issue that stopped me from even getting that far, without any urge to bother troubleshooting it very far.
