Businesses usually operate based on the numbers, and even if the number was ten times what the number of votes in actuality(in terms of support) that's still very low numbers & likely not enticing enough for GOG to consider.
Have you really thought deeply about what those numbers mean and what they don't, or are you just taking them in superficially on face value?
The sale of one game is meaningless in the bigger picture.
Does that number equate to how many customers GOG have on a regular basis?
I'd be extremely surprised to find they have even a tenth of that number regularly.
Many may have specifically come to GOG to get that game, and never been back since. No doubt a good number have bought the whole Witcher series, but maybe nothing else here.
I'm only making an educated guess, but it seems quite reasonable to me.
Most of the gaming world alas, loves Steam, and they want the features and options Steam offers.
Last I read, the Witcher 3 saved GOG's bacon.
That doesn't sound like they sold a great profit making number of other games.
For a store to ignore over 1,000 customers, make them unhappy, is not a good way to run a business. Especially, as those who care enough about the GOG Downloader, would be regulars, not just someone doing a rare purchase, where the downloader did not matter.
That means we likely buy many games, so our numbers would be something like 1,000 times our personal number of games. In my case, I have about 940 games.
You can go even deeper, if you put your mind to it.
(Anyways in case you wondered why I[at the very least...don't know about & can't speak for others] keep replying to this thread...it's because of seemingly
denial filled posts like this one....in how you and others seem to not want to admit it's a likely losing battle.
And it comes from a mostly good place.....I don't like to see anyone waste their time on such unlikely things, when they could be enjoying their lives and focusing their energies elsewhere.)
Those last two quotes are an example of why I get fed up responding to you. You try to put words in the mouth of myself and others. You make assumptions, and don't read properly.
I am pretty sure that everyone who wants the GOG Downloader back, is not naive and expecting it to happen. That is not a good reason to not protest though, and like I spent a whole other post talking about, there are other aspects. You read that post of mine, but somehow missed my very first sentence, where I say - While I suspect they won't, if only not to lose face now, never say never.
Who said we are not enjoying our lives or not focusing most of our energy elsewhere?
We come here now and then and make the odd post or three.
You attribute denial, because you do not reason fully. You attribute denial because you do not look deep enough.
I am not a denialist, what I say is based on good solid reasoning. Just because I don't always provide the detail, like I have done above, or because I am fed up repeating myself, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It's not up to me to do all the thinking.
Give us a break!
