The game LUMO is outdated and Steam has been updated already since 2017 while this update still is missing on GOG. I decided to contact the dev and he told me that it is out of his hands and I'd have to contact the publisher (RisingStarGames) - they should have all builds available. Since RisingStarGames has been bought by Thunderfulgames it was them who answered.

The guy who replied (andreas@thunderfulgames.com) told me

"The update on Steam was to fix a leaderboard issue, and there was an update to fix some controller problems. But due to technical matters, there won’t be any more updates. Not to Steam and neither to GoG. I’m sorry that I can't give you a more helpful answer and I wish you a nice evening."

So I asked him if he could explain those technical matters and I also asked him why I as a GOG customer should receive less than a Steam customer for my money while they don't have a problem with taking my money. Here's the reply I got mere seconds after I wrote this:

"Unfortunately not. I’m sorry that I can’t help you further."

So not only will LUMO not get the same update that Steam received in 2017
store.steampowered.com/news/?appids=345480 (GOG is still on release 1.11.8)

We won't even get any explanation. Way to go publishers - enjoy our money ....

Is the game able to be finished the way it is? Does the update make a huge difference? Normally I would care but If not then I wouldn't say it's that big of an issue.

As far as I know the game is finishable but I would not agree that it is not a big issue to be treated as second class just because you bought on GOG. Also, there might have been bugs (maybe even game breaking) some experienced and some not (due to many possible hardware combinations) so it might as well be that those fixed issues could be important for those. Anyway, since they were really tight lipped in telling me anything all I can say for sure ist that the game is outdated and due to so called "technical issues" the publisher decided not to update it on GOG to the latest available files ... of course the publisher did not have any technical problems to get my money - same money as on Steam. Not a big issue? Imo it is - but everybody of course is allowed to have his or her own opinion.

I was referring to whether or not the game was a broken mess without this update. I mean yeah it sucks that it wont come out, but on the other hand it could just be one of those things where it's only a few minor tweaks that don't effect the overall game itself.

I mean now adays with patches, there are many cases where devs just tweak stuff that they didn't think about the first time even if it doesn't make a whole lot of difference and you probably wouldn't even really notice at all. That kind of thing I can look past and even our favorite games from the past back before patches where able to be implemented (via internet) had some bugs/glitches but where still perfectly playable.

That's basically what I'm getting at. I don't think it should be condemned if it's still perfectly playable even with some issues here and there... and like I said this is coming from someone (me) who is actually a stickler for patches. lol
