Already own a Steam game but would like to take it with you to another platform without installing Steam and authorizing etc all over again? Worry no more! GOG to the rescue!
GOG is the main company (in my opinion) which allows you to download games, DRM free, so you can play them anywhere anytime. You don't need an internet connection or a CD key - just like the good old days. It's great for when you're using a machine and don't want to log into your Steam account, or perhaps you cannot install Steam due to any number of limitations, or you perhaps don't have internet access.
GOG connect works as follows:
- Connect your GOG account to your Steam Account - Download your Steam games DRM free. - Play anywhere, anytime, no restrictions!
The pitfall seems to be that it's a time sensitive deal - only certain publishers let their games go to GOG on purchase through Steam at the moment, and only for a limited time. It does look to be a Humble Bundle esque situation where more titles would be added and removed as time passes.
Additionally it looks like only 20 or so games are supported on GOG Connect, but it's very early days and those numbers are sure to grow from here on out, personally I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
PS: To celebrate the launch of GOG Connect, GOG has slashed prices by up to 85%, which is something I'll definitely be taking advantage of - see the full list here: https://www.gog.com/promo/20160601_special_promo_gog_connect
