Yes, I guess it will come down to that, as we get no answer on that theme anymore. But it's not totally satisfying, because... well, yes, one could see the re-acquisition of the games as a bonus detail (I feel dumb for finding it cumbersome, as I can't say it objectively is, in a digital world), but also I'm unsure about the exact GOG deal, and I'd have preferred to buy them from here, at the authors' preferred price, instead of going through middlemen and unknown cuts. Maybe I'm just overthinking it.
(This is not against GOG, just to make it clear. I already buy enough games there, but I ask myself the questions a bit differently in the cases where there are alternate ways to get them, that would benefit the authors more.)
In my case, I got the first three Blackwell games on an indie bundle, bought Blackwell Deception through this site, ended up buying it on Steam for practically everyone and their grandmother, and finally bought the complete bundle on GOG. To me that seems like enough cash flow for them.
