Techland, the Polish game developer and publisher behind Dying Light and Call of Juarez, is giving PC gamers a new place to buy games. Techland’s digital distribution service, Gemly, is now selling software for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

Gemly’s library of games is comparatively smaller to what’s available from more established services like Steam and GOG. The catalog includes Techland-developed titles like Dying Light: The Following and software the company publishes, like Torment: Tides of Numenera. Gemly is also selling games from Sega, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, 
Tripwire Interactive, Harebrained Schemes and others.

In a FAQ, Techland says Gemly will offer “exclusive content for Techland and Techland Publishing games, as well as cherry-picked selection of games directly from our partnered developers and publishers.”

Techland also says it supports “the industry’s good standards in digital distribution,” and promises secure payments. “All of our games come from legit sources, directly from our partnered game developers and publishers,” the company said.

Gemly’s launch coincides with a new content release for Dying Light on PC. The update, titled Reinforcements, adds heavily armed soldiers and a new zombie mutation to the game. A new rifle, exclusive to Gemly, is also available. More details on Reinforcements are in the trailer below.
