This is all I care about with GoG:
- Games are DRM free
- I can play multiplayer games I purchased with my son without buying another copy
- I can download archive backups

Any initiative that compromises or moves away from these 3 things is something I'm guaranteed to not support. If this multi-service store makes all games purchased through GoG DRM free and archivable, this is great. If not, this is a terrible new service and signals a change to their long standing consumer friendly DRM policy.
I had no idea you could Coop 2 (more?) with only 1 game purchase, which is what sounds like your saying.

GOG has no control over other storefront drm, only that you can purchase and play their game using Galxay. There will most likely be a Tab, for Steam as an example.

Clearly the advertising dollars are already spent for the Nov 19th release and it's why there's a crunch.

Respectfully disagree, we live in a world ravaged by unemployment. Of the approximately 8 billion population, 4.5 billion are of average working age 15-64.
Your talking about 100 people, give or take. They are damn lucky to have their jobs, and I bet most of them know it.
Do you understand this is how the games industry has operated since forever? This has nothing to do with a pandemic and has everything to do with employees doing more work for less money because they should be damn lucky to have such a "fun" job. Some people actually value a healthy work/life balance... if CDPR said they were not going to have "crunch times" like this going forward, it's a bait and switch. And I'm sure once development is over, we'll quietly see the layoffs come in and justified as an "industry reality".
Yes, but it doesn't really apply here does it. Project Red is obviously being pressured by the publisher. And has specifically stated they are paying overtime, which is Polish law. The majority of people in the world want work, and there isn't any. You seem to think there is some perfect place, where trails and tribulations don't happen.

I love your idea that people are that upstanding that because the world is having a problem that they will just simply be happy at working more if they really don't want to. Sure they will do it to keep their jobs but it isn't and people aren't as "boot strappy" as you make it sound. Should people be thankful they have a job? Yes. The counter is once again business takes advantage of a situation, "because you know some people are struggling at this special time, this crunch you should be happy with it!!!", age old tactic.
No idea what your talking about, I'm not making it sound like anything. This is probably the worst economy in world history, it's going to become catastrophic in the next 3 months. This isn't like the great depression where other countries saved our economy because they bought our products. The world economy is failing. You would have to be living in a bubble not to know it's just getting started. Not only is the disease increasing and the economy failing, but they are doing it exponentially. In the US 200 million working age and less than 100 million jobs, irrc.

This week or next, airlines will layoff 10s of thousands of jobs, hotel industry the same and entertainment industries like disney, the same. Flu season is starting early, and here in the US we have a 60% shortage of doctors before the trump pandemic. Hospitals have had record closures in the last 15 years, we have the lowest number of hospital beds per citizen in 60 years, irrc. The disease is ravging states where people are too brain washed, mentally ill or stupid to wear masks.

People are losing jobs, homes and lives by the millions. It took 5 months to get 200k deaths, now we will get another 200k in 2 months, that's what exponential means.
You think people wouldn't work 6 days a week from home, to save their jobs, families, homes and lives. Or it's some kind of happy, boot strappy life?
I'm beginning to think your extremely confused? Amazed

It is a really rough situation all over the world, but especially in the US where the response has been weak. These workers are primarily in Poland as I understand it, though, so loss of homes and employment is not nearly the problem as it has become in the US. At least for the time being.

So while I understand where you're coming from, remember that many areas of the world aren't being ravaged the way we are due to their response. And finally, a global health crisis is not an excuse for taking advantage of laborers. The company made a promise, and it isn't keeping it. This is a sad thing, and hopefully in the future they will find other ways to adapt, or they are forced to find other ways to adapt.
You are correct, I was focusing on US and they are in Poland. However, there is still a storm coming (sorry to sound like a conspiracy nut).

Winter Flu IS coming ( ) and it's packing a punch worldwide. The world economy is in a very fragile state. An orange haired idiot (moron?) is threatening to start a civil war, in the US. It's a very tricky time, if you then add in the fact is all it would take is one more viral outbreak in Brazil with bolsonaro's incompetent corruption or China's hunger problems, both are a covid-20 waiting to happen. Don't even get me started on puttin along, undermining every democracy which also threatens world stability. US and UK/EU are just the most visible atm.

Not to mention, they specifically mention paying extra to the employee's, which is Polish law. It's clearly the publisher pushing the developer around.
Project Red will probably lose millions in bonuses and sales, based on publisher advertising dollars are most likely already spent.

Now, that's the SAME old story. Protest

Please, I've seen some studios, games end up in crunch that last 4+ months of development with no OT. Clearly the industry is much better then it was 5+ yrs ago. As long as they are getting paid for the OT this is a non-issue and story.

Most game developers are on Salary... not Hourly... which is why there is not OT pay available. However, they are usually promised some "bonus"... but we've seen how that goes, like with Gearbox.

Honestly, taking any IT Professional job for Salary instead of Hourly is kind of a dumb move ...unless the salary is way above the industry average. There's almost always "Off Hours" work to be done at some point... might as well get paid for it. Now, where I work, we mainly flex "off hours" work to avoid OT as much as possible... but if it's over 40 hours for the week, we go into OT.
It specifically says they will be paid overtime.

Badowski wrote, elaborating that this meant “your typical amount of work and one day of the weekend.” The extra work would be paid, as required by Polish labor laws. Many other video game studios don’t pay for overtime.

Side note: I just discovered that pablum and pabulum are opposites.
I really like it, and has some cool world building, character building and Ridley Scott (bonus in this case . It's got so much going on for 8 episodes there's no way they could get to them all
