Point_Man: I just want to say, from what i've read a lot of people consider the real main mode of this game to be the survival mode. When the game was originally in EA it only had that mode. They are now adding a story mode to it and have done 2 out of the 5 episodes but from the conversations i've read on the Steam forums a lot of people still consider the survival mode as the main reason to get the game and the story mode as a nice addition that is slowly being worked on. I don't know if a story mode was originally promised, but when i bought it in EA there was only the survival mode and that was the reason i got it.
I was a backer on Kickstarter and I only backed for the story mode. As far as promises go, I seem to remember it was story mode first, survival 2nd.
I lost interest when I saw that story mode was more or less forgotten and I was told off when I complained in one of their backer updates.

One quiet forum post the day before it was about to disappear? I guess someone didn't want us to buy it from GOG.

Well, considering the fact that you obviously needed six months to catch up with this news...an announcement posted a week earlier wouldn't have changed a thing for you.

And all we care about is ourselves, right?

Nice assumptions you are making, matey.
My point stands, though - and the fact that it took you two full weeks again, to react, tells me I'm right.

The way I see it, there are two kind of people in the world:

the ones that were around, when the announcement was made (and then bought the game - or not),

and the people like you - who obvously weren't around when the announcement was made (or simply didn't care).

Why don't you tell us, what's the acceptable time frame - from your perspective - to announce the removal of a game, that would reach "all" possible buyers of any given game in time?

I say that can't be done.
Well, no...that's not quite right...GOG could simply place a general PSA on their front page that says something along these lines:

Attention please: any game available on GOG may get pulled from the store at any time for any reason.
To make sure that you don't miss the possibility to buy a game that you want to own, it is highly adviced to purchase that game rather sooner than later.
Thank you for your Attention.
