GoG Galaxy is an amazing games platform with features that Steam users can only dream of. Now for a limited time only GoG are allowing you to link your Steam and GoG accounts, in order to activate selected titles on GoG. If you’re a Steam user who’s been holding back from trying this excellent alternative system, then now is the perfect time to experiment. It might be that you have no titles that can be activated on GoG, but take heart because it’s early days and more games will be added to this system soon.

Good job GoG, good job!

These guys really are a gamer’s friend, irrespective of what platform you use. Full details of the process can be found on the FAQ page.

Official Press Release

Warsaw, June 1 — Today, we’re launching a new program called GOG Connect. The premise is simple: connect your Steam account and add your eligible games your GOG.com library (at connect.gog.com).

Whether you’re checking us out for the first time or looking to copy over your previous purchases, GOG Connect gives you DRM-free versions of your games, along with digital extras and the freedom to choose between standalone installers or the optional GOG Galaxy Client. It’s our take on game ownership and we say: why buy the games more than once?

Thanks to our awesome partners including Deep Silver, Harebrained Schemes, Jonathan Blow’s Number None, TaleWorlds and more, over 20 games can be added to your GOG.com library if you previously purchased them on Steam.

You can view the full list of games on connect.gog.com, including:
– The Witness
– FTL: Faster Than Light
– The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut
– Galactic Civilizations 3
– Trine Enchanted Edition
– Saints Row 2
– Shadowrun Returns
– The Witcher: Enhanced Edition

While GOG Connect will stick around, the games available will come and go. These are limited-time offers made possible by participating developers and publishers, so stay tuned for more games to come.

If you want to build up your GOG.com library even further, a bunch of our favorite titles will be discounted up to 85% all week long, including The Witness, Saints Row the Third, System Shock 2 and more. You can check out all the deals here.

To chat with us and keep up with the latest releases, deals, and GOG.com events, join us on Twitter (twitter.com/GOGcom), Facebook (facebook.com/gogcom) and our community forums.

The GOG Connect weeklong sale will last until June 6, 12:59 PM UTC.

I guess those games aren't eligible. At least not yet.

Actually, the whole lot is a bit odd...Shadowrun returns, but neither of the additional campaigns for it. Saints Row 2, but not 3 or 4....

I got 12, and yeah, it was odd that I got a copy of the Witcher 1, but not the second game.

I've connected my account. Could take a couple of days for the servers to catch up with demand though :(

I really like this. Too bad I might have to wait for a while to see how well it works with my accounts.
