Steam DRM-free GOG.com version?

Beitragvon Speakerpankratz » Mo 18. Jun 2012, 15:39

Hello dear talented Daedalic developers,
As a proud owner of digital & boxed copies of Edna&Harvey, The Whispered World and A New Beginning, I was very disappointed to find out that Chains of Satinav will use Steam DRM. It's understandable that you want to have a guaranteed spot on Steam's digital store, but still...

I don't know whether there's a boxed, English version of the game planned and whether it would still use Steam, so is there a chance that Chains of Satinav will make it to GOG? I've noticed that The Whispered World is there and GOG have recently gotten into the business of releasing selected "brand new" games, as well.
A GOG version would be an instant purchase for me.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Speakerpankratz,

though this is not completely impossible, the chances are very low there will be a release of TDE: Chains of Satinav on GOG.com anytime soon.

Cheers,
Io

Oh... What a pity, unless your hands are completely tied, please reconsider your decision, I'm sure many people would be just as interested in the GOG release as I am.

Is there an English retail release planned?
One more question if I may, I've noticed that the Gamersgate version uses Securom one-time activation as opposed to Steam, is that correct or a mistake on Gmgate's part?

I'll happily buy Chains of Satinav on Gamersgate if it's Steam-free.

As far as I know, there is no English retail version. The German retail also contains the English version of the game, though.

This version is steamless, yes. There are a few international digital vendors that sell a steamless version of the game. This version is only available in English.

That's very interesting. Are both the voice overs and subtitles in English or are the subtitles in German only? Does the retail version use mandatory Steam?

Wonderful, thank you for clarifying. :)
I'm definitely purchasing the Gamersgate version then. Thank you for responding so quickly.

Yes. The English version is translated completely.

Speakerpankratz hat geschrieben:Does the retail version use mandatory Steam?

Yes. You will have to activate that one via Steam.

You're very welcome. I wish you lots of fun playing! :)

What?! When I asked if it would be possible to offer steamless versions, I got a clear "no". Now I could have simply bought from an international digital vendor then, if I would have just known. :evil: This does not seem right to me and it does not fit to the previous argumentation pro Steam, honestly. Lucky Speakerpankratz. ;)
Alles ist still in Abilacht, der Hilgert hat 'nen Witz gemacht.

Hilgert, this was not the case back when you asked, but is a very recently decision.
