Distribute Kickstarter games that meet GOG standards

Added byrandraug's avatarrandraug

Double Fines creation, Wasteland 2, FTL, etc. Games that emulate and refine the standards of our good old games. It would be nice to have a true DRM site to access these games from when they are finished. Since they all feel almost pressured to go to Steam, I feel that GOG would be an excellent alternative for their distribution method.

Yes, there are few preorders and no betas on GoG. And that is as it should be.

I want to buy games. I do not want to pay for the privilege of being a beta tester. If I buy a game with a boogie button, the game had damned well better boogie when I press it. I do not want to be 'thanked' for filing a bug report testing this.

I've got zero problems with croudfunded games being put on GoG. Hell, I've got negative problems with it, I want croudfudned and other indie games here.

But we've already seen the clusterfuck that is Steam's Early Access. Perpetual betas that somehow always manage to have fully functional real money shops. Multi-year long betas that the developers just get 'burned out' on after selling thousands of unfinished copies.

No. Keep that bullshit far the fuck away from GoG.

This is a silly request. There are already games that have been crowdfunded and are on here. To add to that fact, Wasteland 2 is already coming to gog, as is Divinity Original Sin. Broken age is here already, as is Windforge... See what I'm saying?

OUYA creators have a program whereby if a developer agrees to make their game OUYA exclusive for a limited time, OUYA Inc provides matching funds. They only forbid direct competitors (consoles, Android based systems, iOS, Blackberry, tablets etc..) not desktops and it is a limited time exclusive. Everybody else can have the game, they just need to wait (Mac users know what I mean). GOG could do this too. "Release your desktop game exclusively on GOG first and we will help fund it. Do whatever you like with consoles."

after researching the kickstarter lineup these are the games that seem to be better than average imo;

torment tides of numenera, project eternity, project phoenix, h-hour, dreamfall chapters, wasteland 2, the banner saga, cryamore, republique, stone hearth, candle, monochroma, soul saga, among the sleep, and asylum

some of the titles i mentioned have already been confirmed for GOG so it's really only a matter of patience. the one thing i will say that i think is problematic to a degree is that on kickstarter you typically pay more money for different perks (ie. $20 exclusive soundtrack, $35 artbook etc.) i think we all can agree that GOG is awesome not just because of there DRM-free stance, but all the little incentives they offer as well including wallpapers, avatars, soundtracks, you name it. if the kickstarter backers are the one's getting the exclusive soundtracks and what not, what will they be offering for the GOG version?

why should we follow this kickstarter trend any further, most things from it turned out terrible or had problematic development, do i seriously have to bring up the OUYA hullabaloo and how it turned out to be a underpowered android phone? leisure suit larry? several cancelled games that managed to get it's goal? especially that one cancelled project when a idiot spend ALL OF THE MONEY FROM THE FUNDING! Double Fine's game being split in 2, with the 2nd half needing it's own kickstarter-esque campaign from Steam Early Access from part 1's E.A revenue? Tentacle Bento?

seriously, name 5 different kickstarters that has had successful funding, and still came out as the high quality product as originally advertised

I have no problem with early alpha versions as long as I am aware of the fact.
Example1: Omerta (not really a kickstarter title but for the sake of argument, offered on gog) - at first looks great (strategy/tactical game set in the prohibition era cannot be screwed can it?) but the longer you look the more shitty and overpriced work-in-progress it appears.
Example2: Planetary Annihilation (not yet offered, please add, please, please) - Overpriced at the moment? Yes. Will the finished release be more affordable? Most likely. Did the devs even once pretend that you are playing anything but early alpha testing? Don't recall. As a nice bonus you get a title that fits gog standards no matter how you define them and a spiritual succesor of TA line.
Conclusion: Continue adding newer titles, just do it selectively. True gems tend to happen even today.

It would be great if GOG released a Sonic-esque fan game called Freedom Planet whenever it comes around. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/galaxytrail/freedom-planet-high-speed-platform-game?ref=live

This would certainly fit into GOG's new(ish) direction of offering newer games. Plus with the general Indie vibe that Kickstarter has I'm sure that if offered Steam or GOG as a downloader then most would choose GOG, if only for the lack of DRM. Just try and keep ahead of Steam's inevitable price-undercutting.

Not a bad idea, though there should be something in it for GOG - So those who use GOG as a means of distribution guarantee DRM-freedom and give a small amount of payment to GOG. And therefor gladly voted for this.

Am I the only 1 who finds this suggestion strange? Kickstarter is an American exlusive, or are you only speaking of when the kickstarter is over? (in which case "kickstarted" would be a better description :) )

I voted, more as a way to express my desire for more games being available through GOG than any actual action taken by the GOG people (although being vigilant is good practice, after all I first heard of GOG through a Kickstarter game).

I supported Project Eternity the moment they posted that they will be on gog.com (and when they made PayPal contributions possible). I want the gog to be my number one game store and I want to buy some good new games there too. And I am very happy and proud that people requested Obsidian to sell their game on gog.com!! Thanks guys!!

since MANY (most dare I say?) Kickstarter games cater to the Good Old-Schoold Gamer, GOG should *really* get 'em here.

I voted, thinking it was a blacklist against Kickstarter games that are totally stupid, pointless wastes of everyone's money like most of the stuff funded on that site. It doesn't matter too much whether or not the few good Kickstarter games (Wasteland 2, etc) will make it on GOG, as they'll be DRM-free anyway.

I don't really understand this. Just because they were funded on kickstarter doesn't make the games different. Why would they be treated any differently from every other game that gets released?

Sure, why not, if the games aren't overpriced (probably around 15 dollars, unless some sweet bonuses are included) and are good.

This is mostly in the hands of developers but it does not hurt if GOG contacts them themselves obviously. Only problem currently is that GOG only support windows where as many kickstarters either give you Win,Linux and Mac versions or allows you to choose platform.

I'm voting for this because I want it too. But I really think that the best way to make this happen would be for the Kickstarter backers to put pressure on the developers (Double Fine, inXile, etc) to release these games on GOG. The people funding the project ought to get some input on distribution, and if you're one of them, please let the developers know if your preferences are for GOG.
