Sigh i am happy and both sad , i always thought we would able to get dink smallwood on gog before diablo 1 , both games had almost a impossible chance of getting into gog, The reality has struck , diablo 1 can now be bought digitally legit on gog.

i am hoping to pick it up and play some old school mp on battle net soon.

Honestly the discussion of getting dink on modern platforms has been done to death but its extremely sad to see that games released around its time are getting on modern platforms ....

You can hate me for it all you want, I'm just gonna say it because I know it's true to a degree. Many members don't want Dink on any platforms because that would mean a lot more players, a lot more members of the community, and that would dissipate the small "family" we built over the decades.

I would love to be proven wrong

Just thought people would find a problem with it since it's never been said before. People mostly say it's because of Seth.

If the whole community thinks the same then it would be unwise to do something opposing it .

I sure wouldn't mind new members. I think this place is practically dead at the moment.

It would be fun to see Dink on GOG. How many new members that would bring is another question.

Patching Dink for modern platforms really isn't a problem, though. An updated version of FreeDink was uploaded on TDN just two weeks ago, and even an official modern version exists in DinkHD.

EDIT: Unless you mean like a distribution platform, in which Yes.

We could even do a "goodies pack" like many other games have on GOG, we could do some concept art we can get from the archived website. We could also put the soundtrack in. It could be really beautiful.

TDN really needs new members. Thanks to Skurn it's becoming more of a place for him to shitpost.

Also some new map editors for Dink HD to make a full use of that PNG support since none of the existing ones have it.

I would love to see some new blood who knows maybe we could really get some really creative new dmod makers specially given how popular minecraft was.

Maybe that countdown is really towards something ?

The best app store is the Debian Advanced Package Tool from which we've gained numerous wonderful new members over the last ten years.
