GOG.com Adding Linux

GOG.com announces their online marketplace is widening its reach to offer Linux games along with their roster of DRM-free Windows titles. This has been in the works for a few months now, but Penguin-powered games will not go on sale until this autumn, so for now they are not forthcoming about which games will be featured. They do tease that there will be at least 100 to chose from when this initiative kicks off, and say they will be giving their Linux offerings "the full GOG.com treatment" along the way:

We're initially going to be launching our Linux support on GOG.com with the full GOG.com treatment for Ubuntu and Mint. That means that right now, we're hammering away at testing games on a variety of configurations, training up our teams on Linux-speak, and generally getting geared up for a big kick-off in the fall with at least 100 Linux games ready for you to play. This is, of course, going to include games that we sell which already have Linux clients, but we'll also be bringing Linux gamers a variety of classics that are, for the first time, officially supported and maintained by a storefront like ours.
