Saw this and "ran" to MaGOG, thinking GOG actually got around to setting something up to let her out of the coma... But guess not? :/

I thought you might pick up on this...

I'm in the process of migrating MaGog to another service provider. She's already able to update her database over there, so I was able to report this, but there is still quite a bit of work to do (some of it depending on the new service provider, so cannot commit to a date yet). But, so far so good.

I'll move the domain (thereby making her accessible to the world) once things are more or less ready (fingers crossed). And, of course, post about in MaGog's thread.

I'd like to know the reasoning behind this... I mean I get the German blocks, but some of these things elude me.

Especially considering Biped is freely available on the Chinese Steam storefront. I figured there might be a different publisher involved for the Chinese market, but apparently that's not the case. The publisher listed on Steam is the same as the publisher on gog.

Polaris8Nicola7: unfortunately Rise of the Triad Dark War is still not activated in the German gog shop :-(.

Nergal01: Not yet, but that can take a while around here.
I told them about this way back when, but apparently the gog staffer in charge has the strange idea that this would only relate to the shareware version, not the full version. I told them that this can't be the case, that the "de-indexation" explicitly refers to the German retail version (ie. the full version), but no dice.
nvm

Initially he was right. "The Hunt Begins" was delisted first, but the full game came next.

As far as I am aware, GOG is in regular contact with the BPjM, so they could confirm this with them. But there's no reason for GOG to uphold the region lock here.
