GOG announce "GOG Connect"

GoG have launched a new service today for their platform. What the new service does, is allows you to link your Steam and GoG libraries. In doing so, certain eligible games that are in your Steam library and are available on GoG, will also be made available in your GoG library.

The service is not without limitations however:
  • Only certain games will be eligible and this list will change over time. Once a game is imported into your GoG library however, you keep it.
  • You can only link one Steam account and this link it permanent. You cannot ever change it.
  • You cant buy a game on Steam, get it linked into your GoG account and then get a refund on Steam, keeping it on GoG. They've thought this one through already
  • It can only import games, not friends lists, achievements, etc.

Give it a go at the following link: Clicky! But be warned, the service is being fairly hammered today and is a bit hit and miss.

Does it do the reverse i.e. import games into Steam that you have on GoG? If not, I don't see the point.

I suppose the idea of having it on GoG is that it's not using DRM. From what I read, you don't even have to use their launcher.

Exactly. You can just download an installer and it doesnt require anything else. No always on DRM, intrusive game file checks etc. GoG also tend to give you all the stuff you might expect from a "Digital Deluxe" edition, but for free.
