Our publisher is looking into alternative storefronts at the moment, gog didn't accept Guard Duty sadly.

For people like yourself who backed on Kickstarter and want a DRM free copy I will make sure you get a copy regardless of which storefronts it's available on.

What the heck, that makes no sense. They've published a number of AGS games in the past  :-\ Did they give any explanation?

In any case, the game looks amazing :) Will 100% buy and play on launch!

They gave us some feedback and it seems they might reconsider if it does well on Steam, so I guess we'll see. I get the impression they're being a little more selective with their games recently, also with GD being our first commercial game I can understand why they might be a little cautious.

Good to hear you're hyped JSH, really looking forward to getting my hands on WoaM!

While I think it's a good idea to be more selective about their games (Steam should be, too) it sucks that Guard Duty won't appear on GoG on release day. Let's hope it sells enough elsewhere for them to change their minds!

GOG is becoming more and more an embarassement, they reject many great games which would fit perfectly to their "Good old Games"-criterion (A Tale of Two Kingdoms and Grimoire come to mind but there are many more). A shame really. I find itch.io to be a great alternative to GOG.
I'm no backer but I don't like DRM of any kind. Now many indie-developer publish their games on Steam without the actual DRM (Steamworks), which is a good thing. For me, a game is DRM-free if I can play it (once downloaded) right out of the folder without any clients attached, being able to copy it to my laptop and play it there as well. May I ask if your game will need the Steam client to run in the background or if it will be DRM-free in my definition?

Thank you and all the best with your very appealing project!

Hey Athanor, we're still waiting to get the final word on storefronts to buy the DRM free version. I'll update this thread when I have some more info.

You should really post a DRM-free link that we can spread around.

I'm so ready, bringt it on! :D
I absolutely adore your graphical style! It looks very unique and individual.

Pardon me, but may I ask my question again: If I buy the Steam-version of your game, can I play it "out of the folder" once downloaded - or does it need Steam running to do so? If it runs without the Client, I'd even prefer Steam because of the delayed updates I've experienced with many games on other platforms.

Unfortunately GOG has become a bunch of nuckleheads lately so I don't have high hopes. But I gave it my vote.
