wouldn't surprise me...
Wwwwwait, where did that come from? Let's not jump to the worst possible conclusion immediately. :)
It's probably a delayed by GoG because they couldn't be bothered to implement basic keyboard and mouse support for a PC game. They finally did a few days ago - but still I can see GoG outright rejecting a game that requires a controller to play.
No, that's definitely not the case. I've played the demo in 2014 (I think), and the keyboard controls were completely fine (to this day, I don't own a controller for my PC). It's not as if any kind of fine tuned quick paced movements are necessary for this turn based JRPG anyway.
GOG will publish it when Snowcastle delivers.
I sure hope it's not one of those "i'll delay the drm-free version so my game doesn't get pirated for a while" kind of nonsense I'm hearing so much lately.
That's one of the more plausible theories, I think. There has also been the theory that GOG pushes the Galaxy beta onto their business clients as a requirement, and that may not be as uncomplicated as it sounds.
