rjbuffchix: +1. There is no offline installer for this game?? If that's the case, that information needs to be made clear up-front! Galaxy-required is unacceptable.
I guess if they resolve the situation quickly, it's not the end of the world, though it does speak volumes about where priorities lay.

Some time ago, I had to wait for the Linux version of a game to come out (fair enough, I believe they have been more upfront about supporting Linux on a best-effort basis though I found it annoying for games marketed as running on Linux not to support Linux on release, felt a lot like paying prior to release for a game, but without a proper disclaimer for it).

Now, we're waiting for the offline version to come out. I guess it is getting pegged in the same boat as Linux support (ie, secondary).

Anyways, they can have my money when there is a working offline installer and not a second before.

I see... that is very interesting information about having to wait for the Linux release if marketed as supporting Linux. I do not know enough about variation between operating systems to comment much about whether that makes sense or not, though my gut feel is that is also unjustified on their part to make you wait. What I am clear on is that I feel there is no excuse for not releasing the offline installer the same time as the Galaxy release. The delayed updates and confusion around them is one thing, but if releasing a game for sale I don't see how the offline installer isn't available at time of purchase. They've done it before with no issue, so this slippage is quite concerning for the future.

Offline installer users who want to buy a game instantly to support it, are evidently getting "penalized" and I would imagine some may even be annoyed enough to refund, meaning it would effectively be a lost sale. The least that GOG could do, while imperfect, would be to mark very clearly in these release posts whether or not an offline installer is available and, if it is not initially available, to make follow-up comments to notify users when it does become available. Updates are one thing, we already have the games, but we shouldn't have to ask the community and play the guesswork game to know if what we come here to buy, is actually included in the purchase!
It looks like you can download the offline installer via your browser, but not via Galaxy.
