tburger: What is their core audience then?
Well, you know... the audience, that is core.. or something like that...

There's no way there are any parents buying games here, right?

You mean parents who want to play with their kids those games? In some cases also to refresh their own memories from the childhood? Willing to spend more $ than usual as they would pretend they don't buy those games for themselves? NO WAY!
I hope their games can finally arrived in GOG. Loved them
That "not sure if it's our core audience"-comment dismayed me a little as well. If the game is any good - as these apparently are - such questions should be an afterthought instead of the deciding factor in which games make it to this site and which don't. I wouldn't want to think that the onslaught of platformers we had last year (which has thankfully died down in the past months) was purely due to the fact that the gog guys believe that platformers are in line with their core audience, while other indie projects (some point-&-clicks were brought up in the forum) get rejected for that same reason.

Long story short: If they are released here, I'd consider buying them.

Night Dive recently started a tumblr page, and their first post explains why some of their games are on one platform, but not another. It's a short read, but can help provide a bit more understanding as to why the HE games aren't on GOG.

They shift the blame to the rights' holders which, in this case, is Tommo. I'm not sure if I believe that.

This is a really difficult topic for us because we want the games available through as many portals as possible. Sometimes the licensor has issues with a particular distributor, it's rare but it does happen, and sometimes it's the distributor that has reservations on the type of game, and/or the suggested price of the game.

We're doing our best to get the Humongous titles on GOG. We follow the forum posts, and we receive a lot of messages on Facebook, Twitter, and email requesting DRM free releases, and we'll keep trying to bring them to you.

Thank you for all the hard work you put into bringing those classics back, especially Humongous titles. Humongous games were my favorites back in the days, and it's really a dream come true for me to see them again. Of course I'd like them to be on GOG but I can wait. I hope that you, Tommo and GOG find a common ground soon so that we can all enjoy them without DRM. Thanks again!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the great work you guys have put in to make all this possible. It really says something that you guys take the time to listen to fans and do your best to deliver on what they want. It always brings a smile to my face when I see someone comment about how fondly they remember these games from their childhood.

That's fine. The most important thing is the get the classics back again. While it is best for preservation purposes to have the games DRM free in the end, the first step on any process is getting the games re-released again no matter what. Keep up the good work :)

Thanks, obviously I appreciate the help. I apologize for some of the disparaging comments earlier; hopefully you can understand my severe disappointment thus far as the games appeared on Steam but not GOG.

I hope that you, GOG, and Tommo can work out some good bundle deals, 2-3 games for 9.99 each.
This is pretty funny:

GOG made a post on their Facebook page today advertising the new release Chronology, but they also posed this question:

"What are your other picks when it comes to gaming with the little ones?"

If you use Facebook, this could be an apt opportunity re-emphasize our hope to see the HE games come to GOG.

I fondly remember playing through some of the Putt Putt games with my niece when she was but a wee one.
