Gog has a installable games store and manager similar to Steam called GoG Galaxy. It is only available Windows and Mac. They have no such thing for Linux, the procedure for installing games on Linux is more old-school. You download a big file, which you can keep a copy of, and use that to install the games you either get for free or buy at their store. All the games on Gog are DRM-free which means that you can keep on using them even if Gog were to close down.
The games they offer are not free software, Gog is a commercial games store. Wasteland 2 Director's Cut is available at zero price the next 26 hours. We do not know if they will replace it with some other game in order to drag people to their store when the offer expires.
Competitor Steam will have it's own winter sale starting December 19th, 2019.
