I can see GOG getting the original version of FO UC / the one that's on Steam (maybe some technical work done to ensure it works on modern machines, if that's even necessary). "FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage - Super Digital Deluxe Edition
" is "exclusive to ZOOM Platform" apparently (which has various bonus
Can ZP really stop GOG from releasing the exclusive content they have for UC?
I would ask on discord, but one the ZP employees decided to single me out discord. Saying I'm weird spying on them. Not like I didn't support them, buying a bunch of their games.
I guess this how they treat paying customers.
I don't really know. Maybe so if Z-P themselves agreed to put in the extra effort for an exclusive release, especially since Strategy First is a smaller publisher who has less leverage. They've been able to negotiate perpetual contracts somehow.
I can't blame them since imo it's pretty obvious exclusives are one of the major ways you build competition to a giant, pulling people in "kicking and screaming" away from their Steam comfort zone like EGS is trying to do. I think that's what really helped GOG grow in the beginning.
The extras for the Z-P release aren't anything I'd call super special, so even if GOG doesn't get that version I'd say it's not really big deal.
But in any case, best not to stay off-topic too long.
