GOG Connect is one of the more interesting ideas that GOG has created in their bid to be the primary competitor to Steam in the PC marketplace. GOG Connect works by connecting your Steam Account to your GOG account, and then those games that are in the current promotion which you own on Steam are added to your GOG account as well. It runs for a limited time, with this set of games being available for the next 6 days.
There had been some concerns over the summer that the pilot project wouldn't be continued after it hadn't been seen since its launch in June. GOG representatives quickly explained that they were evaluating and iterating on it and that GOG Connect would be coming back. Now, with seventeen new titles, it's back in a big way!
Here is a list of the titles:
- AI War: Fleet Command
- The Last Federation
- Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition
- Shadow Warrior (2013)
- Hotline Miami
- Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut
- Cossacks Anthology
- The Masterplan
- Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore a Fedora
- Two Worlds Epic Edition
- X Rebirth
- X: Gold
- Anno 1404: Gold Edition
