Okay, I just added this but I just realized something else.

This soundtrack package contains the same songs that were included in Indie Royale's individual Blackwell soundtrack releases - Blackwell Legacy and Blackwell Convergence (Blackwell Unbound was not added by whoever added these two, and I was going to add Blackwell Deception later tonight...)

The only difference is in the ID3 album tag and notes. Everything else, including file names, is the same for the first three games, with the exception of Blackwell Deception, which has different file names (track numbers!) in the Indie Royale release. Even the freakin' MP3 bitrate - they're both 128kbps releases. So I'm not sure if I should go ahead and add the other two missing albums or not...

Also, since GOG is distributing the Indie Royale OSTs, I think it's safe to say this wasn't just pulled from a fan-made rip or something like they've done in the past. XD

I don't know if that makes much a difference. They just take and use whatever they want without any consentment i think.

As for your question, i don't know. Maybe Indie Royale is more suitable than GOG releases. You could transform this entry into 1 that is missing.

What I meant was that the developer gave the soundtracks to BOTH companies / sites to redistribute. If they didn't, then why is Indie Royale distributing the same soundtrack GOG had available several months earlier? Also, all four albums were in a single zip download - while the Indie Royale versions are 4 separate zip files, with one album each.

I just sent a tweet to the head of Wadjet Eye games. Hopefully he'll reply.

Edit: Here's his answer.

@Foxhack - @WadjetEyeGames I have to ask. Are the GOG and Indie Royale versions of your game soundtracks 100% authorized by your company?
@Foxhack - @WadjetEyeGames Sorry for the question, but I'm trying to convince someone I know that they're fully legal. He thinks they're not.
@WadjetEyeGames - @Foxhack yep!
‏@Foxhack - Thanks for the answer.
So that's that.
