i think i almost care! nah i don't. :-P
Yet, you care enough to post.
And what do you think? Will they be interested in such kind of a deal?
I don't know enough about the publisher (Arc System Works). It could go either way.
I have a feeling that publishers are very slow with offering their old IPs to public (e.g. Atari, Ubisoft, EA) despite having or not a signed agreement with GOG.
No surprise there. It's not like EA or Ubisoft are getting the vast majority of their money by selling their stuff here.
