Kôna: Day One now available on GOG’s Games in Development Program on Windows PC

kona-day-one-now-available-for-windows-pc-on-gog-games-in-development

Kôna: Day One, the first act of Parabole’s interactive tale set in the 1970s Canadian north, is available now on GOG’s new Games in Development program. Players can discover what lies in store for Carl Faubert, private detective, as he begins to investigate an increasingly unusual case in an eerie, blizzard-stricken town, but on Windows PC only right now.

Find Kôna: Day One on GOG at 33% off.

Parabole is proud to have Kôna: Day One appear in GOG’s hand-picked selection of promising games still in development and believes feedback obtained from the GOG community will be extremely helpful in making the game as enjoyable as possible.

“GOG’s careful selection and personal approach in deciding which titles make their way into the Games in Development program helps nurture a strong relationship between developers and players,” says Alexandre Fiset, CEO of Parabole. “Additionally, we fully support GOG’s DRM-free model and no-questions-asked return policy, which both create a worry-free purchasing experience for players.”

Kôna: Day One heads into full release later in Q1 across Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. So be patient, a native build will happen soon.

GOG.com takes on old-school with Codemasters games now available on Linux

codemasters_games_come_to_linux_on_gog_com

While everyone’s enjoying their #holiday preparations and #gift #shopping outings, our Product team was busy getting a bunch of Linux installers for Codemasters games up and running to deliver to your loving gamer arms. The titles we’ve got for Linux are 100% functional on Ubuntu 14.04, as well as Mint 17.

The games you can now enjoy on your penguin-tastic platform of choice are:

Cannon Fodder
A title you may remember from the times of Amiga or Sega Genesis gaming, this game will have you guide your squad through various scenarios and encounters, completing objectives and eliminating foes. Be warned, though – it does get quite challenging at later levels!

Cannon Fodder 2
Played the original? Survived? The Codemasters crew wants to finish you off in the sequel. The soldiers of Cannon Fodder have been kidnapped by a squad of aliens. Can you save a foreign world from invasion? Probably not, but give it a go anyway!

Leisure Suit Larry
With a suit that’s been out of style since before it was made and determination to get all the bodacious babes on the block, this classic is a risque point-and-click adventure that fans of dirty humor will enjoy.

Sensible World of Soccer 96/97
Or football, as we call it on this side of the pond. Take a shot at training or playing for your very own team of world-class sportsmen or local underdogs from almost a decade ago. Pixellated stats, exciting stick-figure plays, and one button that covers all your in-game needs. Need we say more?

Still not enough Linux for you? Check out almost 400 other Linux games available in our DRM-free catalog!
