The history of deadalic on gog makes me suspect that they are exemplary greedy, petty profit-maximizing dicks. Exactly the most heroised and glorified mentality of our epoch.
I don't think they are greedy dicks, I fear they are in financial trouble. About a year ago there was a statement of them. Don't remember the exact words, but if I remember correctly they said that their adventure games not as lucrative as they hoped them to be and that they wish that only a small part of their Facebook fans would really buy their games.
Bad thing is that they seem to draaw the wrong conclusions from that. Treating some of their customers like shit probably won't help. I would have bought some of their games here at full price on release day if they would just include the German language. $20-25 is a fair price for their games in my eyes, but I'm not willing to pay around 40 Euros for a quite short adventure game just to get the original language.
Instead I wait for them to include it (sometimes years after the original release) and buy the games for $5 in a sale or for even less in a bundle. Seems to be a loose-loose situation in my eyes.
If I may, I'd like to speak in Daedalic's defense :)
1. They know full well that releasing a game from a German developer without German is not seen as a good move. They do, however, add German when they can. See The Night of the Rabbit as we just recently (about a month ago) added the German language to that game :)
2. They DO release games in German when it's possible. See Blackguards for example. German was included right off the bat.
