    I am so happy to hear that War For The Overworld will (hopefully) finally be coming to GOG. If you purchase the game now on Steam, do you still get the DRM free version as well?

    Unfortunately as the GOG version is going to be an "Ultimate" edition and the GOG Connect feature can't determine what DLC a person owns we can't award copies on GOG if you have a steam copy.

    However we will look into options to see if we can offer some kind of discount. We're not sure to what extent we can do that though.

    If the GOG version is an "Ultimate" version with everything included than how does matter what DLC you have on Steam? Is there no way to give backers or legit Steam owners a key for the GOG version?

    I am not arguing with you, just curious.

    In the end, I would be fine with a small discount and don't really mind buying the game again. It is an awesome game and you guys did an awesome job and if it helps you guys stay in business and help to fund future games including a sequel to War For The Overworld down the line then I am ok with that especially since I thought there would never be a GOG version.

    Because GOG Connect is only able to detect if someone owns a copy of a game on steam and not details on it's edition or DLC. This means that if GOG Connect was used to grant GOG copies for steam users a steam user who does not have all the content of the Ultimate Edition could get the ultimate edition without paying for it.

    The Ultimate Edition would essentially be the Underlord Edition of the game with all DLC included.

    So to clarify on the discount, if it is something we could do it would likely be a discount for the exact cost of the base game of WFTO, thus if people have WFTO on Steam and want a GOG copy the discount would make sure they only pay for the extra content that would be in the Ultimate Edition. (Basically all the DLC & Underlord Content)

    Ok, I get it now. Thanks.

    So if GOG were to improve GOG Connect so it could detect what edition or DLC a user has (assuming it is not a limit placed by Steam), would that change things for you guys?

    Fine by me.



    Now that I know you guys are planning to make more content for the game and a GOG version, I am going to make it my duty to come back every now and then to pester you guys and make sure it gets done. Look forward to that. ;)

    My understanding is that this isn't related to GOG Connect but rather Steam's API so the onus is on valve to improve, but there's likely no need for them to do so. :)

    But yes if the system was improved that would make things simpler.
