Red face Is GOG.com really this stupid?!

They placed original Flashback, one without pre-rendered graphics, that is the same as Amiga version of the game for ...


wait...


$9.99, but with 10% it can be your for only $8.98?!

On PSN you can get for that much new version of the game that includes this original in it. (I think I go it for 1 dollar on sale)

Poor poor Delphine. Dead and buried for many years and still gets the blame. Poor poor GoG. Only a distribution platform and still called a publisher.

I've no idea who owns the rights for their catalog... but whoever is, it is very greedy...

Publishing and book distribution can be confusing. As a definition the process of publishing is “to issue (printed, reproduced, textual or graphic material, etc.) for sale or distribution to the public.” This is what publishers do with books and ebooks in particular.
Remember, person with no humor here...
