Aha! I see the problem. You're buying the digital version of the game, which requires VAT by law. The physical version does not, so we were able to remove it without getting into trouble. Sorry about that.

oh sorry I totally misread the resonance post, I thought the tax was only for physical item. Ordering the game right now, thanks for your fantastic games :)

I pre-ordered this from GoG.com instantly when I saw it. I don't dare to try the demo, because I don't want to spoil the experience.

Hey just wondering if there'll be either a DRM-free or Gog version (Since there's no steam version yet - already voted on greenlight ;p) emailed and available to us to play while we wait for shipping of the boxed edition, similar to how resonance worked.

Also I assume we can send you a proof of receipt and get a steam key once this gets greenlit like I've done in the past with Blackwell deception..?  ;)  :P

From the preorder page:
"Purchase includes a DRM-free Primordia download at launch."

What about a demo of Primordia, is there a chance for us to see it before the pre-order ends? For now, as far as I know, it is only given to those who have bought the game on GOG?
That is rather strange, as the demo would seem to be more useful for those people who would like to see a sample and decide if they want to buy the full game, and not for those who have purchased it already :)

Yuri: I know it seems backward. It was part of the deal we made with GOG. We'll have a demo on our site right after Thanksgiving.

Hello

Will the GOG version include the developers commentary?

Yep! The GOG version is identical to the WEG version. Although the demo won't have commentary.

i beat the demo the day i downloaded it from GOG.com.
loved the vocals + vocal effects on Ever-Faithful.

Are there going to be point values and achievements in this game?

i recently got many Wadget eye games from GOG, after playing through Gemini Rue i had to do the Primordia pre-order to try the demo (cant hardly await release day to get the full version).

i noticed in Resonance there were both point values and achievements, but in Gemini Rue there were no achievements. (i ran into Ed and Ein from Cowboy Bebop; one of the most awesome easter eggs in a video game, my fav 2 characters from bebop due to pure comedy.)

after the encounter i found out (reading forums) that the steam version got achievements on Gemini Rue. Between the choices of DRM-free and achievements, obviously DRM-free is my primary goal. But i didnt mind the achievement system like Resonance had.

just curious if this new awesome game will share both the greatness of DRM-free and achievements + points system.
the points dont need to show up each time, it can tally it up and be viewed on a sub-menu to not break the immersion factor.

in regards to the older titles, is there a possibility of a future update that might add the achievement system to Gemini Rue?
i have to boot up the Blackwell Bundle games so i have no clue if they have achievements yet at this point on the GOG versions.

loving the games. keep up the great stories and great work!

Achievements but no points.  Victor (the artist) liked points, but from a design standpoint, I felt that they had a couple shortcomings: people should explore for exploration's sake, not to pick up points; and assigning different points to different approaches seemed to channel players in a particular direction rather than encouraging them to experiment. I do like the old school value they have, but overall didn't think they were quite right.  Sorry to disappoint!

awesome! glad to see the GOG version gets an achievements system.

no disappointment on no point tally, i can see if i missed out a sector of the game if i dont get all the achievements; unless its some either/or achievements in the mix. can hardly await to see. ^_^

The WEG download demo has an achievements system as well. Obviously you won't be able to unlock all of them without the full game, but they are there.

I checked my records, and I see an order for Primordia from your email address as of 7:11 this morning, so it looks like you have been charged. If you haven't received a notification yet, it's probably just being processed. If more time goes by, let me know by email and I'll contact the webstore guys for you.
