Simply login to your GOG account, and visit the GOG Connect page. Link your Steam account using the button on the page.

Tropico 2 and 3 seem to have some issues, at least for me, are not downloading via the GOG Galaxy client, which gives a download failed message, and displays something about a server problem.The other games are downloading fine via GOG Galaxy though. And, I was also getting a 403 forbidden error on GOG, when trying to download the files via my browser yesterday. Today, however, I am able to download the files through Firefox and IDM. But the GOG Galaxy is still giving the same error.

We are not sure how long this promo lasts, but given that the GOG Winter Sale ends on December 11th. we think the GOG Connect promo will end on the same day.
