Is there a posibilaty that this future, awesome, mega-briliant game that deserves every peny it gets from the people that either are looking for a game that will make them cry, laugh, think and wonder or the people who check they're blood presure when someone mentions TORMENT, make it to GOG??

BTW
I doub't that I need to post this here because I would bet that 90% of the comunity here knows about this but if you don't then:

I swear I'm not a dev advertising\overhyping this game.
Wasteland 2 and Project: Eternity are already confirmed to be on gog. I'm pretty sure it is safe to say this one will be here too.

Do you get the gog access as a kickstarter backer like with FTL for example?
It would be awesome if you could choose where you get the game(steam, gog, etc...). But I have no problem buying this game a second time on gog.

I know you will be able to chose between gog and steam keys in PE and I'm fairly sure in W2 as well

I didn't realize it was out already.
From the kickstarter page:
The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)

Apparently they consider distribution through Steam to be DRM-free. To me that sounds like no DRM in TToN itself, but distribution partners might put their DRM on it.

There are DRM-free games on Steam, you know. It doesn't give you a proper installer that you can run by itself, but not all indies do either, some just give you a zip file to extract, and some games on Steam can be treated the same (zipped-up and moved to a steamless computer)
I was aware of DOSBox games being completely DRM-free on Steam. Other games I didn't know about.
That thread isn't interesting to me as I refuse to use Steam.

I do, but only for a scarce few games. Regardless, it does prove that a game can be DRM-free even if distributed through Steam.

Personally, I consider not being provided with the install files to be a form of DRM, as it may interfere with your ability to create a back-up copy.

(There's also a case for the requirement of authentication of payment, but I'm not willing to go that far.)

Do you consider games distributed as plain no-installer zip files to be DRM'd as well? What if you went to a website and got the instruction "download these files and put them in this [described] folder structure"? I don't see the difference between that and a DRM-free Steam game except the method of distribution (client versus web site).

Then again, I consider DRM to inhibit your usage of the data (say, when you need to be online to install, or play a singleplayer or LAN game), not the acquisition thereof (say GOG, Gamersgate's or Steam's DRM-free games).
