Update 41: GoG is happening...and soon!

18 likes

Hey everyone,

We have been listening to feedback and have taken steps to address it the best we can. We were planning on releasing on GoG at some point, but some of you may have caught today that we announced we coming out on GoG on May 30! Following feedback, we put our heads together to figure out how to make day-and-date possible and are now proud to say it's coming out along with Steam, XB1, and PS4 on May 30. 

So, for all the GoG fans, if you would like to swap your code for a GOG code, please email amanda (at) thedeependgames (dot) com and put the word "Code Swap" in the title. In the body, please tell what code you currently have, and what you want to swap it for.

While we had to shift plans to accommodate this change, we were unable to get the game on the disc.  We had already started the manufacturing process and cannot make changes to what will be on the disc at this point or in the future.  Additionally, changes would mean splitting what is put on what disc, along with unforeseen delays, costs, and many issues that we are not able to address.  

I hope you can understand where we are coming from.  

We hope you're excited! Another platform is a good thing!

      @Koochi That's exactly why myself and others are posting here and elsewhere including in the comments on news stories about the launch and on the Twitter and Facebook accounts of the campaign creator. The idea is to convince other people that a developer that pulls this kind of last minute bait and switch should not be supported. As such, I am going to keep posting here and elsewhere until there is a satisfactory resolution which would be either a commitment to provide the physical game disc as promised or a full refund.

      @Bob M, well first of, I highly doubt the thing you're saying will come true. I'm not the kind of person who'll say the same thing over and over on a page just to get the attention of the creator or the backers. I'll just ask one time or PM the creator.

      Secondly, didn't I say that I don't dare to marginalize your statement. You may think I was sarcastic, but I wasn't. Just because this issue of whether I get the game on disc or via code isn't noteworthy to me doesn't mean it's not to other people. Thats why I advised PM'ing to see what TDEG says. I'm being considerate towards you guys. Imagine what other ppl see. The same guys saying roughly the same in each new update. People'll think: not again. Difference is that I say something about it.

      It's definitely within your right to complain and I can't stop you. I just want you to look for other avenues before, like I said, others who were impartial to the news get swayed to also saying that they want a refund. Or what happend to No Man's Sky; ppl playing the game, like or hate it and then say refund or something.

      @Koochi Here's the thing. As a frequent Kickstarter backer and fellow gamer, I support other backers and gamers and if they have been promised something and the project creator makes poor excuses for not delivering, you bet I am going to keep posting about it here and everywhere else. It really makes me sad when fellow backers think that just because something isn't very important to them that it's not worthy of discussing or complaining about. I'm sure someday you will back a campaign that doesn't deliver in some way that's very important to you and on that day, I will be right there by your side supporting not just your right to complain loudly, but also backing you up. When a Kickstarter campaign creator doesn't deliver, it damages the credibility of crowdfunding in general and it hurts all of us. As such, I'm not going to be silenced by you or anyone else.

    4. Koochi on May 24

      @Bob M, hmmm lemme see, do I tell you what you should or should not post... *looks*, nope. So that one's invalid. I'm just stating my case just as you're doing, so yea.

      And there you go, repeating again. If people really feel that way, they can, well write blogs, articles and such to convey their message instead of just posting on new updates 'I want a refund'. I'm giving options as you can see, not telling you what you can or should do.

      Next to that, I don't dare to marginalize your passionate crusade of the issue, that's why I said that you could PM the creator. I think that would be more effective then posting comment after comment of the same thing. But it's your party. Celebrate it how you want. Wanna be pouting and hanging a cloud over a release, by all means if that makes you happy. I just hope that as all of us are gamers, that what matters most is that the game is delivered and will be a unique experience instead of what people experience now of the medium the experience will be on ;)

      @Koochi It's not your place to tell other backers what they should or shouldn't post. If you don't have an interest in this discussion, that's your choice and you can feel free to ignore it. At the same time, to diminish or marginalize the seriousness of a project creator fraudulently soliciting contributions based on a tier they had no intention of fulfilling is totally inappropriate. If the project creator doesn't fulfill their part of the bargain, there absolutely should be a cloud over the release of this project and you can bet that backers who feel lied to will continue to post here and elsewhere so that everyone is fully aware of the bait and switch that is being perpetrated here..

    6. Koochi on May 24

      This topic again... You've stated your case. Personal Message the creator and see how they'll deal with your claim. It's just weird seeing you guys say the same thing over and over but with different words.

      You're unhappy with course of action, fine. You wanna vent, fine, to a degree, don't let your unhappiness cloud over other people's anticipation (I don't think that's your intent, but it'll definitely be the case) of the game.

      Same as Bob M. I only back projects that offer physical copies of games. Either DEG is completely clueless or manipulated people into contributing more by crafting fake physical tiers. To what end, I don't know, it's incredibly cheap to master DVDs these days, so this action/decision just feels malicious and insulting. They're going through all the motions, including pressing discs for bonus materials, packaging, shipping, but leaving out the one thing we actually wanted, and their entire campaign was set up for: the actual game. :\

      The money you're saving on pressing new discs (that shouldn't have even needed to be redone if this had been considered originally!) cannot possibly be worth the bad press you're going get out of this. This makes no sense at all. Please, reread your original tiers and tell us we're being unreasonable. It's ridiculous that we even have to sit here and make these arguments.

      @Garrett No, that's not correct. There are companies like Indiebox and numerous publishers that still deliver games on physical media. Some people don't have fast Internet connections or they are worried about what happens someday when a game is taken down from a service like Steam. A physical disc can also generally be resold and has actual value versus a one-time only code. Regardless, a number of us would not have backed this project without the guarantee of a physical disc version. Personally, I wouldn't have put money into the project at all and would have just waited for the inevitable download sale after release.

      I'm pretty okay with getting a digital download code with the physical packaging. I'm gathering that's what you meant? Isn't that all most disc pressing is for PC games now anyway?

      @Brian Orlick Please explain how they are "bending over backwards"? They literally took our money two years ago, didn't say a word about the alleged issues with releasing physically until a month before release and have now changed the excuse for why it can't happen twice in two updates. How would you feel if the project creators showed up here a month ago and told you that although they promised a PC version, due to a last minute complication that was fully within their control, they decided to release on iOS instead? I'd imagine you'd be pretty angry and maybe you'd even want a refund. I've backed many, many computer game projects over the past four years and this is the first time any project creator has completely failed to deliver on a physical version when there was a tier created specifically for it. I've literally backed $10,000 campaigns where physical versions were provided. Disc replication is crazy cheap nowadays and there is no excuse for what is happening here.

      "I really appreciate how you're bending over backwards to accommodate the needier backers"

      "Wow some people are super entitled."

      Are you guys serious?! We're not entitled or needier in the slightest. DEG offered a physical copy for a sum of money, we paid that sum of money, now they can't be arsed to fulfill it. How is that needier or entitled?

      If went to a restaurant and ordered a steak, 30 minutes later the waiter brings you out bread and water, you're telling me you'd be 'entitled' or 'needier' if you complained due to it not being what you paid for? I highly doubt that.

      And before you start with the whole 'but KS isn't guaranteed', just check the T&C's that all companies agree to when they have a project on here.

      Wow some people are super entitled.

      Keep up the good work devs.

    14. Brian Orlick on May 24

      I really appreciate how you're bending over backwards to accommodate the needier backers. You guys have done a wonderful job putting this game together, and taking all this extra effort during crunch time has got to be rough. Good on ya! Can't wait to play it!

    15. Dave Hopman on May 24

      I agree with everything everyone said here and I would like a full refund too. You're very disrespectful toward your backers!

      You're making it sound like this snuck up on you. The first time we heard about this you were already in the process of putting together this disc-based collection of assets that no one wanted in lieu of a physical game, and we vehemently said as much. You can't just say, "Whoops, too late now!"

      If pressing new discs with everything we were promised on it is inconvenient or not cost effective because you went out of your way to master a disc consisting of nothing but supplementary material that no one was asking for, for some reason, then I'd be satisfied with a full reimbursement. Otherwise, let's call this what it is: BS.

      You guys are clearly gamers too. How would you have felt if you prepaid two years early for a first run copy of your favorite game of all time, and then when it showed up on your doorstep, it was just a box with some music tracks and pdfs on a disc in a plastic case, with a note telling you that your game will be provided via an email link?

      We showed faith in what you could make and what you would deliver, we don't deserve this.

      It has been almost 2 years to the day when I contacted you about the Kickstarter campaign offering a physical copy of the game to get my backing.

      23 months later now you are coming up with excuse after excuse about how you are now suddenly not providing the physical copy. There are equally small teams who have provided physical copies on Kickstarter. If it is too late in the manufacturing process, you knew about this decision long ago and didn't tell your backers. Being in the game pub industry, printing a DVD run isn't that expensive (even in small qtys). You're simply being dishonest and and frankly, this is a scam.

      Please refund now.

      I too would like to request a refund due to the blatant misleading concerning a physical copy. The excuses are weak at best, the wording was entirely misleading and you seem to not care.

      "We had already started the manufacturing process and cannot make changes to what will be on the disc at this point or in the future." What a totally tone deaf way to respond to the situation. It's pretty clear you have no regard for your backers if you can't figure out a way to press a second disc with the game as promised. Your excuses are getting really tired. First it was impossible because of patching and now you're claiming it's too late to cancel the disc pressing process. Which one is it because it seems like you're scrambling for any excuse to justify what now appears to have been intentional fraud (i.e. collecting money for something you knew was never going to be fulfilled). Will refunds be made available to anyone that is not willing to accept a digital copy in lieu of the physical copy that was promised?

      What if we want a PS4 code instead?
