This is a bit troubling for backers who backed it as a mobile game...

Well, the game was released for the mobile platforms only. Unfortunately it was released without most of the features that the developpers had originally promised. So there's no scam involved.

What we're seeing now is an expanded version of the original game, closer to the programmers original objectives.

Whats more troubling is for anything for PC/Mac backers to come about after that KS finished (mobile backers had it good enough all this time *including* access to the PC and Mac versions unless my memory is wrong). There is suspicion they funnelled the KS funds from the PC/Mac to continuing development of the mobile version :/.

Now I'm intrigued... Did they say anything about bringing the game on GOG ?

Nope. So far only Steam is confirmed (which is inevitable, since everything PC must go "steamy" nowadays). But the development is still early alpha.
Much is yet to be added.

You can follow the game's blog.

Is there any way to ask the devs if they're gonna put it on GOG ?

Right, but if the promised features don't come to mobile then it's a bit of a "screw you" to the original backers, no?

Maybe after the game it's finished they'l do a portable conversion.

Done, and done. I even included a link to this thread.

Hey folks, Jordan here - one of the creators of Star Command!

Couple quick things about the game.

First - Yes, we will 100% be on GOG. We have been in touch with them since Star Command Galaxies development began. They have been very supportive and we will be on here.

Second - All of our kickstarters, 1st and 2nd did receive the game. As for the funds, 100% went to the development of Star Command Galaxies. But to be frank, 150k is about 15% of the total cost of the game so a lot of other funding has come in, both from the success of the mobile title and investors. It's really neither here nor there though - all that matters is that the game is good.

Third - we have not discarded mobile. It's a big income generator for us, as we have sold over 600,000 units. We are currently porting to WIndows phone, revising gameplay elements like combat and adding new content like pirates. That said, we're always a bit lost on the requirement to provide continued support for the game. Star Command mobile is significantly longer than other $2.99 games so were just not sure where that outlook comes from (again, one of the major problems with the mobile market).

Currently the plan is to have monthly updates and the next one will be out mid January. We are taking a Prison-Architect/Kerbal/Rimworld route through our Alpha to take some of the pressure off of a schedule and keep the focus on progress and quality.

Be happy to answer any and all questions as well! I will be checking in the forum regularly now that I know there is GoG following here.

Cheers and Happy Holidays,
Jordan@Warballoon
Thanks for the reply - very happy to hear that it should be making its way to the GOG catalog. DRM-free is an uphill battle and it's nice that some publishers "get it".

The game itself looks pretty interesting so far and I'll be awaiting its release here.

Best of luck with the project!
