Using GOG Connect, some of your Steam games will transfer over to your GOG library for free and without DRM. The service is available starting today, and while it doesn't and won't cover all the games shared between the two services, it will help you create some continuity without the need to purchase the same game twice.

Out of the gate, games from Deep Silver, Harebrained Schemes, Jonathan Blow's Number None, TaleWorlds and other publishers and developers' games will be compatible. You can find the full list of compatible games here, which currently covers games like The Witness, FTL: Faster Than Light, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, Galactic Civilizations 3, Trine Enchanted Edition, Saints Row 2, Shadowrun Returns, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, and more.

GOG says the GOG Connect will be an ongoing service, the the available games will fluctuate, and some will only be available for a limited time.

 

Our Take
This is a great option that functions as a way to get players to try a PC game distributor other than Steam (a difficult order) while not demanding they completely separate themselves from Steam – something Origin has mostly failed to do.
