Which Linux distributions do you support?
We test and support our games on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Our support also extends to any future non-LTS releases of Ubuntu that has not reached it end of life yet, official Ubuntu flavors (like Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc.), and derivatives (e.g. Linux Mint, elementaryOS etc.).
As long as your operating system is part of the Ubuntu family, you have nothing to worry about. Naturally, our technical support and refund policy apply to all these versions, as long as you meet the minimal requirements for the game you bought.
Are you planning to add official support for more Linux distributions?
There are no plans to officially support other Linux distributions at this time, sorry.
Will GOG games work on other distributions anyway?
You're more than welcome to give it a try, but we cannot guarantee that everything will work without a hitch.
That means we won't be able to offer refunds, or accurate support, for technical issues on a Linux distribution other than Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS, their official flavors and derivatives.
What is Wine? Why do you label games that use it?
Wine is a compatibility layer that implements a Windows environment on Linux machines.
Wine carries some inherent performance and stability disadvantages. We place great importance on testing and building Wine games to make sure they are up to our standards of quality and performance, and we will support and stand by these releases. At the same time we recognise that this may not be an ideal solution for everyone, and that some of our users approach Wine with a healthy bit of scepticism.
We feel that it's your right, as our customer, to be informed about any traces of the Wine wrapper on Linux.
