GOG.com release announcement
This title was delisted on October 31st, 2017 after being abandoned on GOG.com by its development or publishing partners. On October 25th, 2017 GOG.com’s PR representative, Elcook, explained the situation on the site’s forums:
For some time now, we’re working on relocating GOG Ltd. as a company from Cyprus to Poland (legally speaking our Cypriot GOG and Polish GOG are merging into one GOG located in Poland), and this should happen with the end of October. This whole endeavor requires a lot of paper work, mostly legal and financial, and time. It won’t affect your rights as users in any way, and you don’t have to do anything when the merger is done.
There is one change that will happen, and we want to give you a heads up about it. Since we’re merging, we have to assign all the license agreements with all our partners to GOG located in Poland. We’ve been doing this for a while now, and almost all of them will be assigned. Unfortunately, some partners are very hard to reach, even for us, and since we didn’t manage to get their consents to this assignment we’ll have to remove a few titles from the catalogue until further notice.
Below you’ll find a list of all 15 titles that will be removed from the catalogue on October 31st, at 3 PM UTC. We will be doing everything to get those titles back, but we cannot promise when they will make a return to GOG, so this might be your last chance to buy them, or grab Warsow and AFK The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard for free!
Titles to be removed on October 31st:
– FRACT OSC
– Slender The Arrival
– Recettear An Item Shop’s Tale
– Chantelise – A Tale of Two Sisters
– Warsow (free)
– Mutant Mudds
– Devil’s Dare
– The Ballads of Reemus: When The Bed Bites
– TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard [Movie](free)
EDIT: Removed Fractured Soul, 99 Levels to Hell and Miasmata from the list as we managed to get consents to those assignments 🙂
As of August 2019 the remaining titles above are still delisted from GOG.com, although they are available on other platforms (see table at top).
About the Game
“Reemus the insect exterminator and his companion/minstrel Liam the purple bear embark on a journey across exotic lands as they match wits with giant talking insects and bumble their way towards writing a ballad of their adventures that will finally impress the citizens of Fredricus once and for all! A fully voice-acted, funny, cartoon point and click adventure.
Journey to the Apnea Swamps to face the menacing but lethargic Bed Bugs. Escape the depths of the Termite Mound prisons and the jaws of the towering termite soldiers. Fight back against the powerful and scheming fire ants. Encounter bizarre creatures like the miles-long noserpillar and the hot-tempered honey bee. Marvel at the illustrious plant-life, like the ketchup and mustard plants, magnet flowers, mattress-shaped water lillies and illuminating light bulb vines. All this with tons of unique puzzles that tease your brain but have just the right amount of casual difficulty.
Ballads is based on the world and characters of the hit web game series The Several Journeys of Reemus and tells a completely new story. We brought in accomplished indie voice actor Josh Tomar to play the part of Reemus to give the universe a new level of immersion, along with a cast of 36 total voice characters.“
