Well I finally got a reply from Mr. Wes Jenkins! I had to re-send my original email, but thankfully I got a response.

 

In a nutshell, he said that he would send/email my request to somebody in a seemingly high-up position, and let me what happens.

To continue to follow up on this, Wes was able to provide me with contact info for the person - Hanne Odegaard - who "runs [the] gaming division out of Billund..." I've sent this person two emails thus far with no response (somewhat understandable given her position), so today I sent a third and decided the best thing might be to pass along the contact info the GOG staff. (I'm worried about posting the email here, even though I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be misused.) Hopefully something will come out of this, but obviously we shouldn't get our hopes up.

 

Oh, and in the email I sent to GOG I gave a shout-out to this site, comparing it to what the System Shock (systemshock.org) community has done over the years for System Shock 2, which saw a GOG re-release a few months back.

Ooof, unfortunate news. :( Email I got back: "Thanks for your email and follow-up. I have reviewed your proposal and discussed with the team and at this point I would like to decline the opportunity. Although I appreciate the idea it is not something we would like to pursue and doesn’t fit our strategy for LEGO Digital Games."

 

Oh well, at least we tried. Maybe later on they will re-consider. The only way to keep these games alive digitally now is through illegal means, it seems. :(

Don't tell me they have been sucked into the TT Games pit too! D:

I vote for first option. Hopefully they will reconsider. Yea, it seems that way, but there is always a copy for sale on ebay, Bricklink, and the like, and if that is how the games survive until they are re-released, let it be. As long as there are players, they won't die.

Besides, TT Games re-released them in 08(?), so who knows? There might be another re-release planned soon.

I somewhat doubt much discussion (if any) actually took place, the response was far too quick for an actual organized meeting.

 

I'm not surprised, TLG only cares about the now.
