I really do like the game Armello, but sadly the new DLC is not coming to GOG. The reasons are quite odd.
Speaking in August a developer said this on their official forum:
QuoteThe reason we're not sure how to manage DLC on GOG is because of the nature of DRM free platforms.
I find that very, very odd. There are plenty of games outside of Steam and on GOG specifically that handle DLC perfectly well.
A few days later the developers said this on their forum:
QuoteWe've had fantastic meetings with GoG about the future of Armello on the platform and although there's no way for us to provide DLC for DRM Free users or to attempt to retain parity with the Steam version of Armello, Armello DRM Free Edition will see features that best suit a DRM Free experience picked across from other platforms into early-mid 2017, helping LoG & GoG (lol) reach our mutual goal of providing users the best possible DRM Free Armello experience.
I literally don't know what they are doing now. This "no way for us to provide DLC for DRM Free users" just makes zero sense.
Three days ago, the the game was re-named on GOG:
QuoteArmello, the digital tabletop/role-playing/strategy game, has now been updated and renamed to Armello - DRM Free Edition.
The game now has a 16 page topic on GOG rammed full of complaints about it, as customers feel completely let down.
I completely understand where people are coming from, as they essentially purchased a game on GOG that is late with patches and isn't getting the DLC. So "hey we gave it a new name, but you're not getting the DLC!". The new name makes literally zero sense too, since GOG is a DRM free store.
I do wonder if the developers have seen low sales on GOG and just don't want to openly state it in case it sours relations with the store. Either way, it sucks for people who purchased this on GOG.
Both League of Geeks and GOG will suffer due to this. I expect a fair few people will look to another store, and another developer in future.
Another stinky situation, such a shame.
