Ok, so looking at update 27 it says "Everybody that has pledged for the game through Kickstarter will be sent a Steam key", with anybody who has requested a gog key getting one as well. I think I'm reading this right but I would also like some clarification on how it all works.
Still waiting on my GOG key even though you sent me a Steam key instead -_-
Perhaps I should just use the Steam key in the meantime instead of being made wait?
I would prefer the GOG version as well
I'd prefer the GOG version.
I would also like a GOG version of the game please.
I prefer the GOG version too :)
I would prefer the GOG version please!:)
I would prefer the GOG version. Good luck with the launch.
I would like the GOG version please. Also, if anyone want the 25 % off coupon for Strike Suit Zero you can use mine : KS4ACTPTN
I would like both as well, however I dont like DRM so I will go for the GOG version please.
First off, thank you all at Born Ready Games for giving us the option of a DRM & DRM free copy of the game. For my part I would press like a DRM free copy from GOG.com. Thank you all and I can't wait to get my joystick play the full version of this game.
can the dev team tells us if the game integrates Steam cloud? If it's the case I'm interested in the Steam version, otherwise I'd rather get it on Gog.com.
Both would be great but I'll definitely go with GOG, I just like it much more than Steam.
Both would be great. After a great deal of consideration though, if I have to pick I think I'd go with GoG. Steam Offline mode has failed me one too many times, and I've been stuck with no internet a bit too often lately.
It would be nice if i can have both, hell, i dont mind paying a bit more to have both.
Looking forward to Strike Suit Zero, since previews so far had been incredibly positive.
Congrats Born Ready. REALLY looking forward to this. Will be putting the music on my ipod if it's all as good as what we saw in beta too. :)
Make sure you post to kickstarter when you put a demo out so I can hassle my friends to try it.
Thank you Born Ready Games for not letting that Mac/Linux stretchgoal go to waste, even though it was barely missed.
I'll be waiting for the Linux version.
Excellent news. I would be happy with the GoG version alone, but I perfectly understand the demand to have both STEAM and GoG versions.
Make it exclusive for kickstarter backers only?
+1 for "why not both"?
Both would simplify things. I mean, why not?
Aw man, had I known that there'd be two versions I'd have wanted a pledge level where I get both. I'd have paid a bit to have access to both DRM and Non-DRM versions.
Also, yeah, Steam offline mode is nice and all... if it works. GOG it is, I can live without online leaderboards. Kind of.
Can we have both, pretty please?
Guys, it's clear that they haven't quite figured out DRM-free distribution for Linux yet, but that doesn't mean they aren't thinking about it! Give them some time (especially as their Mac/Linux alpha or beta nears). Let's keep a good attitude about it, and politely remind them without coming off too aggressively! Of course they'll take care of us... they've committed to our platforms, so they've put their integrity behind that commitment.
They have a number of options (as stated below), the best of which are Desura and the Humble Store. Desura is nice because they have the option to package a standalone installer, along with the client software in Steam-like distribution mode. Neither of those Desura methods require any DRM. Likewise, the Humble Store is clean and simple, and is basically another GOG-alike. I like Desura better, personally (I use the client software, and the community features are better), but have many many Humble Store games.
@Born Ready Games: As stated below, really chuffed about the announcement! Of course there are distribution issues to iron out, as you're well aware, but we (your backers) are here to bounce ideas off of. Also, I'm really happy with the concept art! Especially, I'm happy to see the female soldier concepts, and that the ladies will be portrayed as real humans, and not stylized bimbos. We have plenty of those in video gaming, and a more realistic direction is well appreciated. Kudos to your artists and creative director!
Thank you very much for this update.
@Marsell, I think GOG supports MACs too right now.
GOG historically has only supported games on Windows. Will GOG have the Win/OSX/Linux versions of SSZ?
Awesome! Thanks for the update!
So now that linux/ Mac is announced can we assume that since this is Steam that it will be steam play? as in can be played on mac or PC?
Hmm... the Humble Indie Bundle gives you both DRM free copies and Steam keys, so I must admit I'm a bit disappointed by this announcement.
GOG is so good but its not cross-platform, why cant make agrement with Desura which do support all three platform??
When offline mode works, sure, but you have to have done certain things to ensure that, plus gog means I can download a back up that I can install without being online at anytime, sometimes I lose internet connection without warning and haven't had a chance to switch steam to offline mode, which whilst it usually works, sometimes it will refuse, and I am stuck with no access to my steam games. (its happened a couple of times)
I would prefer having both but if I had to choose one it would probably be GOG.
Many thanks from both Mac and Linux communities!!
Mac & Linux gamers: It's up to US to help generate as much press as possible from this announcement. More attention raises the profile of the game, and will help build a lasting community for many years to come. Also, it's critical that we do what we can to help cross-platform friendly indie devs like Born Ready Games stay in business, so we can continue to enjoy their future games! So, go to your communities! B-)
I can play many of my Steam games with my internet down just fine....why do you need both?
i like GOG but that means no linux DRM free and i am really disapointed
Thank you guys! Nice update! And I would add my voice for both versions, yes! Please do it for us.
Not that I wouldn't be happy to play both but I can play Steam games with my internet down.
"Important: we will assume you want the Steam version of the game unless you get in touch to tell us otherwise. If you would like the DRM-free GOG.com version, please direct message us on Kickstarter and we’ll make sure your order is amended accordingly."
Why not just give everyone both?
My preference is for the steam copy, but I have a couple games where they gave me both options (Witcher/2, Defenders Quest).
Its nice to have options :v
Plus it means I can have a back up copy to play during times my internet is down.
But either way, its awesome that you are at least giving people the choice, and that its on GOG. Because GOG is kind of great.
