Killing Time, Uprising: Join or Die, Uprising 2: Lead and Destroy, and Requiem: Avenging Angel were relisted on Steam on April 15th, 2020 and on GOG.com on April 24th, 2020. As promised earlier in the year, Ziggurat was able to take over as the publisher of these titles from Retroism and bring them back alongside a slew of new-old game releases on both platforms.
GOG.com team member Chandra posted to their forums on February 4th, 2020 that Requiem: Avenging Angel, Uprising: Join or Die, and Uprising 2 – Lead and Destroy would be removed from sale on February 7th. The same three titles were removed from sale on Steam one day prior, February 6th. Killing Time, which was delisted from GOG.com in January of 2020, was also delisted from Steam on February 6th.
Some forum discussions allege that the Jordan Freeman Group — the studio working with ZOOM to update and re-release classic PC titles — has developed an unfavorable opinion of GOG.com and has chosen to pull some of these games from the service.
As of this writing only Killing Time remains available, exclusively on ZOOM where it is also published by Retroism/Prism/ZOOM.
