    NeverWinter Nights 2 has been removed from the Mac App Store with no warning about 2 weeks ago. I only found this out today. Aspyr recommends that people that bought it, back it up (to a DVD-DL, external drive, etc). Initially, it was totally gone from the App Store (couldn't be redownloaded) but since April 5th, redownloading is once again possible for people who bought it. Aspyr hasn't said how long customers will be able to redownload the game. Also, Aspyr has yet to comment on why they would not warn customers in advance when a license to a game they sell is about to expire.

    I was able to re-download after calling them (seems like Apple allowed re-downloads the day I called) but before that went into place, they were willing to send me a disc if I sent them my iTunes receipt.

    However, the really awful thing about it was that they had it on sale for .99 cents a week or so prior. Obviously it was because they knew their digital distribution rights were ready to expire, but they never mentioned that. That little bit of trickery has really soured me on Aspyr and Mac gaming.

    I just got this from Aspyr support:


    Good news about redownloading, but I'm skeptical about the "contractual obligations" part. I have a feeling I'm being lied to.
