As promised earlier in the year, popular DRM-free online games distribution platform GOG has today added support for Linux titles alongside its range of Windows and Mac games.

Fitting with the rest of the GOG catalogue, the list includes both classic and contemporary PC games and impressively, 23 of the launch titles on GOG have reportedly come to Linux for the first time, including FlatOut & Flatout 2, Darklands, and Realms of the Haunting.

Popular Linux distributions Ubuntu and Mint are officially supported. A blog post over on GOG lists includes a comprehensive list of the Linux games now available and an explanation of how delivery works:
"OK, but how will Linux support actually work on GOG.com" - you might ask. For both native Linux versions, as well as special builds prepared by our team, GOG.com will provide distro-independent tar.gz archives and support convenient DEB installers for the two most popular Linux distributions: Ubuntu and Mint, in their current and future LTS editions. Helpful and responsive customer support has always been an important part of the GOG.com gaming experience. We wouldn't have it any other way when it comes to Linux, and starting today our helpdesk offers support for our official Linux releases on Ubuntu and Mint systems.
Of course, there's also a celebratory sale to kick things off, with discounts available by way of this promo page

If you own the PC version do you also own the Linux version?

Well, seems good. I am really looking forward for the various reliabilities to come.

Yes Hogfather, once you buy a game you have access to all the Windows/Mac and now Linux version of the game.
