Have a question?
Dave, you are awesome. Thank you! Totally swamped with this launch, really a big help. Consider yourself upgraded to a hard copy + case + manual of Back From Hell :)
@Photoplay: Thanks for the quick response.
I've created a GOG wishlist entry for the game: https://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/back_from_hell
Anyone with a GOG account can vote for it. Unlike Steam Greenlight there is no formula where a certain number of votes guarantees GOG will sell the game. However it lets them know that there is interest from the community and if nothing else I hope it brings a bit of exposure to the Kickstarter.
As I understand it, GOG will commit to selling a game until they have a playable build in their hands (they have a standard of quality that Steam lacks).
I will also spread word of the Kickstarter on the GOG forums and any other video game related forums I belong to.
First and foremost thanks for backing us! :) The DRM thing is something we have considered, will find a solution for sure, if only a small amount of users have this concern it may just be a matter of mailing out a disc or something for people without Steam. It would be awesome to get on GOG, ill look into it over the next couple of weeks.
Hi Photoplay games, I've a few DRM related questions:
The rewards tier only mentions a copy of the game on Steam but on the campaign page a DRM-free version. Will backers be able to opt for the DRM-free version (for the 1.0 release)?
Also, would you be interested in distributing the DRM-free version on GOG (if possible)? GOG recently started an "In development" option where you can sell beta copies similar to Steam's Early Access program. I could understand that it might be overwhelming for a small dev team to simultaneously manage two beta builds (I'm not really sure what the technical differences between Steam and DRM-free builds are, I've just heard developers say in the past that Steam supposedly makes updating / patching easier).
I think this sort of game would extremely popular on GOG as it seems fans of old school adventure games / CRPGs like to buy their games there. Personally I'm not really much into beta testing (beyond playing brief combat demos on occasion) but if nothing else I'd strongly prefer to have the final version of the game on GOG (or barring that Humble store) as I'm not a fan of Steam.
