    Someone should make an accurate list, sure. I'm just saying it would probably be very small, and mostly obscure titles, which is likely why it doesn't exist.

    Battlespire is a good little Ultima Underworld sidegrade title. If I remember correctly it was Julian LeFay's last game.

    I would call all games from Win98-WinXP era suspicious - each of those should be checked before buying.

    Any game that doesn't run (properly) for you, you can refund on GOG. So not really worth the effort of doing in-depth preemptive investigations that may or may not be accurate any more at the time of you actually playing the games in question.

    Is that something like a 50-percent profit margin? If so, that's very good.

    Goddamn GOG with their patch delays. Pissing me off for the last 5 years. Right now, Frostpunk, crashing. Steam users got their hotfix today afternoon while my game still keeps crashing. Just lost an hour of progress.

    How difficult is it to release a patch as soon as the devs provide it FFS.

    Galaxy version or offline installer? GOG's mentioned tons of times that the patches for offline installers are delivered by the devs really late sometimes because of how unusual it is as part of their pipeline. If it's Galaxy though then yeah, bullshit.

    So after chatting a bit with GOG support they informed me the hotfix has been applied on the Galaxy version two days ago. They almost sounded as if I'm a big dumbo who is complaining about nothing.

    Except they haven't updated the patch notes. Or indicated in any way the hotfix went out. And the game version displayed on the main menu is still the same.

    Yeah.

    Control is DRM free on Epic so it makes sense to do a GOG release right away. Good on them for both.

    Highly recommend Gamedec. I've had access to a backer build for a while.

    I can't see why GPLv2 wouldn't be compatible with a console release, are you sure you're not confusing GPLv3 with GPLv2?

    I don't know about Sony and Microsoft, but Nintendo doesn't allow open-source software on their platform. Further, while I don't know for certain that MS and Sony don't care, that ScummVM doesn't support the PS4 or Xbone and how generally there's no open-source software there makes me think they're not fond of it either.

    Timequest, noice :incline:

    Although, I seem to remember that Ziggurat takes a somewhat liberal view of the concept of rights ownership? Oh well, hopefully more people will play it now that they can get it from a reputable site, at least.

    Timequest! :love:

    It's one of the really good Legend text adventures. It's almost one of the most non-linear games I've played, and it has a truly fantastic sequence at the end that makes the text interface (ie having to type what you want to do) really shine.

    Les Manley is a not-so-good take on Leisure Suit Larry. The first game's alright if I recall, the second one quite mediocre.

    Return of the Phantom is not my favourite of the trio of Microprose adventure (I prefer Dragonsphere) but it's quite atmospheric. This seems to be the CD version, and the voices it adds were horrendous.

    I never played Machiavelli The Prince, but it's a spiritual successor to Merchant Prince, and that was a fun and well done strategy game.

    Ah, Les Manley, I had heard people describing the signs of its return. Rivers turning to blood. Mother birds killing their children. Trees shriveling up and dying randomly. I'm not sure if I buy stock in that, but the second one is some weird FMV thing, right? Looks ugly as hell.
    The real interesting thing there is Last Rites. I'm surprised someone thought it was a good idea to sell it. I don't remember much about that game, but there were three key elements I do remember. All the levels I played had 30:00 par times, one level was set in a mall, and that level wanted you to kill some thousand enemies. Its like a Doom slaughterwad sold commercially.

    I remember really liking Return of the Phantom as a kid, but haven't touched it since then. Never played Les Manley stuff, will watch a video.

    The FPS seems up my alley but never heard of it, will also watch a video.
