Here is the latest info if you're a KS or website backer looking to get a GOG key or wondering about the in-game rewards.

Am i considered a backer if i bought the game after GD was released?
(from this website)

I bought only because i saw:
play on steam
DRM-FREE copy included (comming soon)

In GrimDawn, if you go to the options section, then Network tab, there is an option to download the Cloud saves (or Delete be cognisant of the one you click).
I would venture that if you backup the saves somewhere else after they are downloaded to the location medierra mentioned, then when using the GoG version it should just read that info and start fine. If not, you have a backup you can restore to the GoG version if it clears the characters there.

Telling the wrong person. Need to tell the poster before. That is why I gave the link to the other thread, which explains how to do so.

Just like with DRM-free files on HumbleBundle, you can login to your account on the gog.com website, and download updates from there.

On a sidenote: it's strange that there are so many people who want DRM-free games, yet they don't know GoG, the largest provider of DRM-free games...

Yes, if you bought on the website at any time, you can get a GOG key.

So far Steam community can't play with GoG community?, I was told by support that they were able to play together, this changes my plan

So now I don't know where to redeem my loyalist items, on GoG or Steam, can I redeem on both?. I purchased the game on Steam and also the loyalist and Ill use the loyalist for a GoG account. I prefer no drm but also like a bigger online community

Not really. You use STEAM's matchmaking service, but your copy of the game remains independent. STEAM'd act pretty much as a browser or a bit like GameRanger. It doesn't actually affect your game or the prequisites for running it at all. Also, you'd only do so when wanting to play with friends that have the game on STEAM.

GoG hosts the patches.

Let's say GD V.1.0.0.3 is released; in you GoG account at your Grim Dawn product, a new direct download will appear > GoG_GD_1.0.0.3.exe.

You download this miniature-installer to your PC in a folder. When you want to patch your game you run it; you don't need Internet anymore. It can't be more DRM-free than that lol.

Also for new buyers or if you re-install in the future, if there are many updates; GoG can make a big patch that will say from v.1.0.0.2 (base game) to v.1.0.1.9 or around then same thing you download a separate installer (the patch) to your machine and then you install it after installing the base game whenever you want if you want etc. You own your GD totally !

The codes for those haven't been distributed yet. I have a call with Humble this afternoon to find out where they are with that and hopefully resolve whatever issues remain. Another update will be posted when the reward codes go out.
