Although I ended up not buying any of them, I thought it was nice that on signing up to GOG, they offer you some discounts as a ‘welcome gift’. For example Grim Fandango for 2.99 or something, and Psychonauts for 1.99.
I’ve watched someone play a bit of Distraint. It reminded me a bit of those Flash games like Crimson Room. Basic, but fun.
Thanks for the tip. That one looks interesting, and it pretty highly rated (Metacritic).
Note to others - if you get this (like I just did), your Steam Key must be redeemed on Steam within 15 days. I believe that it’s also downloadable DRM free though, so this not is only relevant for those who want to use it on Steam.
I’ve purchase many humble bundles in the past with steam keys. I’ve never seen this before, but there it was in big red lettering at the top, when I opened the purchased page. Perhaps because it is a free item, or maybe they are changing their policy on new purchases.
Yes, keys/gift links for GOG/Steam etc. can expire.
I don’t redeem Steam keys from Humble immediately though. Sometimes years later. Haven’t had any problems with normal purchases/Kickstarters.
So when I purchase a game and redeem it on Humble I normally wouldn’t expect Steam keys to vanish later. But it seems like this can happen with those free ones (at least there are also DRM-free downloads for this particular one and who cares about Steam anyway).
They also seem to give stuff away when making a purchase right now. I bought Unforeseen Incidents and Gorogoa (for ~€30 total) and got Rime and Sunless Sea thrown in for free. (Rime was on my radar, though it’s Windows only, will have to see if I get it to run). I already had Sunless Sea on Steam, but having a DRM free copy surely doesn’t hurt.
Gorogoa runs just fine with wine. Odd that there is no native Linux version, though. It’s made with Unity and I just saw it featured on the Mac App store, and I think it’s on consoles too.
