    itch.io also has a lot of games reduced to FOC, including things like Nuclear Throne: https://itch.io/c/757294/games-to-help-you-stay-inside

    Re: GOG announces its 'stay at home collection' of free games

    Where is the GOG collection of free games listed? Im on GOG and cant find it. I can go to all games and filter FREE, but then I could always have done that anyway. Most of the FREE 'games' appear to be DLCs which are free anyway and demos? The big graphic in the article for Hello Neighbor relates to the Alpha demo? Many of the 'true games' appear to be ones that would have run nicely on a 486

    Re: GOG announces its 'stay at home collection' of free games

    It seems to be a tad tricky to actually get the free games on GOG. When you put them into the cart and go to the checkout you're unable to pay and thus unable to complete the transaction.

    FWIW I had put CAYNE and Postal: Classic & Uncut in my cart.

    Think it's exactly that, they just put them all together. This was the original post: https://www.gog.com/news/stay_at_hom...om_our_catalog

    I had found the button to progress unclickable, but it turned out that I had added a game or two that I already owned on GOG (which were indicated via easy to miss 'owned' tags by their names in the cart), so that's why it wasn't letting me process it. Removing the duplicate and then refreshing the checkout page allowed me to complete it (just choosing the 'Remove' options alone didn't).

    Re: GOG announces its 'stay at home collection' of free games

    You need to make sure you haven't got items that require basegames missing from your library before being able to check out, it will say in the text above the list at checkout which ones you need to remove or buy the base game for.
    Desktop MSI B550M Mortar, Ryzen 5 3600, 16GB DDR4 3200, 1Tb NVMe SSD, 2x480GB SATA SSD, 4Tb + 2x2Tb HDD, 3x monitors, Windows 10 Pro 64bit
    Server MSI Z170A Gaming M7, Intel i7-6700K, 16Gb DDR 2400, 120Gb SATA SSD, 1Tb WD Black HDD, 4x 4Tb HDD in RAID5
