This is huge news:

Introducing GOG Connect
GOG Connect

Important: You can connect only one Steam account with your GOG.com library. This process is permanent – choose wisely!

Important 2: If you own some of the games and Connect doesn't recognize them, press the Refresh button and wait a while (can be a few minutes, hours or even a day). The reason for this is that GOG is using the Steam API to scan your Steam library and the API has a limit on the number of calls it can make for a given period of time. If you're still having problems, refresh your GOG account by visiting this link.

Connect your Steam account and grow or jumpstart your GOG.com library.

Today, we're launching a new program called GOG Connect. The premise is simple: connect your Steam account and add your eligible games to your GOG.com library.

Whether you're checking us out for the first time or have been with us for a while, GOG Connect gets you DRM-free versions of your games, digital extras, and a whole lot of freedom of choice (like whether you go with the GOG Galaxy client or not). It gets you our take on game ownership, and we say: why buy the games more than once?

While GOG Connect will stick around, the available games will come and go. These are limited-time offers made possible by participating developers and publishers, so stay tuned as we bring new titles onboard in the future (and grab your copies before they go away)!

I really hope more games are made available, because this could raise GOG's popularity significantly!


Edit on 11-October-2017:

Current batch of 2 games is available until: 14-October-2017, 13:00 UTC

- Torchlight
- Torchlight II

Thanks to BrianFarnet: The GOG Connect Steam group is a useful way to get notified about future batches in your activity feed.

Thanks for the heads up! gog is awesome. If they would manage to do this for every game in steam, valve would be in big trouble!

Why would valve be in trouble?
It simply means people are going to be purchasing all games on Steam and know that they can double dip and get the GOG version as well. It will simply mean no one will purchase games from GOG as they can get them free if they get the Steam version.

From what i understand, many ppl are dissatisfied with valve, but have little choice since their library is stuck with them and many games use steam only drm or even distribution.

There is at least one such person...

It does not really hurt valve is people don't play the games as long as they purchase from them.
This wont affect that. Now if it was the other way around and people could play games on steam purchased from GOG, that would annoy them a little bit.

That is sorta the point, if you can swap your library to better shop, and get all future games you want there, you wont buy from older one.

But if your library is tied up with steam, and most games require steam you have little choice - you have no choice but to give valve money i you want those games.

A nice feature even if most of the time it's Indie games that offer this, too bad I don't have the first Torchlight to add was hoping maybe it would go on sale on Steam no such luck.

Good to know, for me it didn't worked then & don't work now. I never set my steam profile private & have tried 3 different browsers + GOG Galaxy.

It just might be that GOG is having trouble parsing your extensive Steam library.

Several times tried to get Torchlight II from 3k+ games collection, and it still hasn't. It does say:
Looking for eligible games. Due to exceedingly high demand this may take up to several days, please check back later. Thank you for your patience.

So who knows if it will even work before time is up.

Try to log out then clear your cookies and log back in and try again. Hit refresh several times and you should get it. There's no harm in giving this a try. Good luck!

Thanks for the info. I managed to get them both. And TL2 even comes with a bonus Linux version, very handy ... because I don't want to run a Steam client on my Linux system.

You made me curious. If you don't mind sharing - why don't you want Steam on your Linux system? I'm asking, because I plan on moving to Linux in the indeterminate future and you now have me wondering whether it's some privacy issue I haven't heard about, dependency on some libraries or something else. Totally cool, if you don't feel like saying your reasons.

That's actually a pretty good question. It's mostly privacy concerns. Steam collects way too much data in general. Even on Windows I block it with a firewall to prevent it from leaking too much data (like how often I play, when, my game progress or even the content of my harddisk) except when installing updates or new stuff. However, I basically use Windows only for games, all my important things like personal documents, photos, work stuff and so forth is stored on my main operating system, which is Linux. While it probably would be possible to set up a Steam client on an extra system user account to make sure it cannot access any of my data, I still prefer to keep things completely separated. I guess it's just a matter of preference. I admit, if I were absolutely consequent, I probably shouldn't be installing commercial software on my Linux system at all ... with or without steam client, but hey, GOG seems trustworthy to me.

So my hunch was correct. I have similar thoughts about the privacy aspect (one of the reasons I like GOG), but haven't really taken any measures about it yet. You just gave me a good idea of what to do when I start using Linux. Thank you! :)
