Not a very good excuse for the removal of the Timberborn Demo
Once we have acquired something to our library it should stay there.
I have no problem with the removal of the demo from the web page of available demos, and a good excuse was given for that. But removing it from our library is like attempting to rewrite history and shouldn't be done. They cannot delete the demo for all those who have downloaded it, and I am guessing many would have, and will likely still try it if they haven't already.
A demo is just a demo, and most gamers realize the game can still be subject to change, sometimes dramatically.
Anyway, while it is no longer listed in our libraries, I was still able to download the latest update
, because I haven't yet updated the manifest of games I have, and GOG have left it available via the GOG SDK, clearly.
Whilst I agree with the sentiment, I see where the developer is coming from as well. Guess they didn't want copies circulating beyond this temporary period.
Anyway Steam does it all the time as well. I've had a few Steam demos disappear from my library.
Since they were demos, I generally don't bother as much, unless they were special demos, such as demos that have maps/gameplay that don't appear in the final product.
