Default GOG Connect launched - add Steam games to GOG library for free

Quote:
Connect your Steam account and grow or jumpstart your GOG.com library.

Today, we're launching a new program called GOG Connect. The premise is simple: connect your Steam account and add your eligible games to your GOG.com library.
Whether you're checking us out for the first time or have been with us for a while, GOG Connect gets you DRM-free versions of your games, digital extras, and a whole lot of freedom of choice (like whether you go with the GOG Galaxy client or not). It gets you our take on game ownership, and we say: why buy the games more than once?
Thanks to our awesome partners including Deep Silver, Harebrained Schemes, Jonathan Blow's Number None, TaleWorlds and more, you can now add more than 20 games to your GOG.com library if you previously purchased them on Steam.

While GOG Connect will stick around, the available games will come and go. These are limited-time offers made possible by participating developers and publishers, so stay tuned as we bring new titles onboard in the future (and grab your copies before they go away)!
https://www.gog.com/news/introducing_gog_connect

https://www.gog.com/connect


The servers are getting quite a beating, so don't expect to connect your accounts right away.

Sigh.
EVERYONE wants to connect to the steam account now!
Its like Google Play now (steam is).


But, getting some games drm free is is a huge bonus, and not having to buy them again is also (although I think I have most of them).

Gunna try it.
(dang, it really is getting hiy hard, cant even connect to the page that tells you how to do this.
).

Don't forget to set your profile privacy as public, as GoG.com needs that to see which games are in your library.

I just received Unreal Gold, The Witcher: Enhanced Edition, Trine: Enchanted Edition, To the Moon and Unreal Tournament '99 GotY for free.

I haven't encountered any service that wants to connect to my Steam account until now... But maybe I am just out of the loop.

I am one of those weirdos that actually prefers Steam copies of games. I pretty much avoid GOG, and have been known to not buy a PC game if it isn't doesn't use the Steam client. Buuut... I will probably do this, just so I have a backup copy of some of my games.

SteamDB and Humble have used it for a while now! I also used this in 2012 or so when I was running serioussam.nl.

Just that are now much more entry points for someone to nab a creditcard or an account.
Other than that no issues.

Also, some places that do this:
gog.com
greenmangaming.com
Playfire.com
The new LawBreakers game (which looks totally kick arsed!) (it doesnt just use steam which would be fine, it REQUIRES you to link your LawBreakers account to your steam account)
Probably even more that I dont even know about or use.

So, again, no real issues, except that it is yet another entry point that can be exploited.

There's not really a new entry point. When a website allows you to "log in through Steam", you are redirected to a Steam login page which will send the profile information back to the website that asked you to log in. Basically these websites only get the information you have set as public in your profile (along with your account name), they don't actually get to see your password since you log in on the Steam website.

And if you still don't feel secure enough there's always two-step verification, either through email or the Steam mobile app. I use the Steam app since it's highly unlikely anyone gets unauthorized access to my phone.

Some sites also ask for extra permissions like "can activate steam keys on your account", Humble did this for a while but they stopped doing it, not sure why.

Well yeah, but you can't really lose your shit over receiving free stuff, right? My point is that there's no real insecurity with the login through Steam option.

2 games, but I dont see them added.


Did you have to click the games to get them?
I still only have 31 games on gog, but it DID look like it added Trine and Braid.
But, like I said, I had 31 on my account before I linked, and it still says 31.

After it says which games are eligible to receive you should be able to click redeem. Then you'll get a confirmation email about it.

The FAQ says that if you ever lose the steam copies that they will take away the gog copies. But what if you normally have your steam account set to friends only privacy?

That sounds unlikely. You can just set your profile back as private and they'll never be the wiser unless you set it back to public and use the Steam login feature again. This is probably to prevent people from buying an expensive game (should they become available), connect it with GoG and then get a Steam refund to get a free game.

Quote:
Yes. Once you have imported a game and own it on Steam, it's yours to keep for good. If a game is removed from your Steam account for any reason, such as through manual deletion or a refund – we reserve the right to remove the games from your GOG.com library.

Setting your Steam account to Private after connecting will not cause your games to be removed.
They're even advertising this workaround. The best way for GoG to prevent this is to check the playtime you have on a game, and only grant the game on GoG if your playtime on Steam exceeds two hours since you forfeit your right for a refund then.

Well, I got the 2 games that it said it found (I guess) that 1 day.

I have 3 other games that arent being recognized though.
Contacted support, and gave them some ideas on what it could be though, so we will see.

You make a persuasive argument. GOG it is then.

It says 0 games available for me as well now. That's because you already redeemed the games, so the checker sees that you already have them on GoG GOG so it shows as unavailable. If you go to Account -> Library the ones you redeemed should be there.

They are now.
But, GOG itself said you needed to click on the games to redeem them in their Connect steps, but I didnt do that, because they never showed.
But, doesnt matter, I have the 2, and maybe the 3 will get resolved through support.


Straight from GOG website:
1) Log in to, or create, your GOG.com account.
2) Log in to your Steam account via the secure form.
3) You will enter a queue to have your accounts connected. If you see an "Accounts Connected" or "Your accounts are being connected" message, you can leave the page and return later.
4) Return to this page and use the "Add Games" button to finish the process. Your games will not be added automatically, so remember to confirm which games you'd like to have on GOG.com
