  • Suggestion for DRM release

    Hey Devs,
    I hope i am in the right forum for this suggestion. Recently i rebuilt my pc and with the design of the cooling system, i had to forego having a disc drive for the radiator space, now unfortunately that means i can no longer install any of the original homeworld games from disc.
    I do own the homeworld remastered from gog AND on steam (Had to support the devs) but in all honesty i am a traditionalist, i prefer the original games from the source material.
    So i thought, why not suggest a drm release of just the original classic homeworlds on gog ? for the purist fans of the series. Just the original Homeworld 1 & 2 (and Cataclysm if possible)?
    The remastered versions were great and brought some new fans to the homeworld universe, but a classic release would be something us old school players would be happy to have, it would be a smaller download, use less installation space and faster to navigate, quick and easy to install just without the discs and patches.
    Someone who has the urge to play the original series can install the whole thing in one installation and play through the original story without needing multiple installations, it wouldn't need to be multiplayer compatible like the remastered version, just the campaign and cpu skirmish mode for people to enjoy.
    I thought since you have everything already made (Except maybe a launcher) it would be a nice addition to the series, a classic trilogy pack if you will.
    What do you think ?

    P.s BBI-Ian fortunately i was able to get the 48 achievements in Homeworld Dok after a lot beatings in the 1v1, but with patience i finally got it lol.

    Thanks for the post! I suggest you present your idea to Gearbox. However I am guessing with the original versions being included as part of remastered there likely isn't the impetus to make this happen.

    Glad to hear you were able to get all the DoK achievements finally. Nice work!
