Don’t Make Overkill’s Mistake: The Art of the Tease

So let’s talk about teasing. Overkill has had a inconsistent record in using the tease to garner (sigh) hype, sometimes to great effect, sometimes to the annoyance of their playerbase.

Specifically, though, I want to talk about the Clover teasers from Crimefest, the Halloween 2014 event, and the Historical Pack.

The Clover teasing started out well but then devolved into inelegance near the end.

    In 1899 Liane de Pougy commissioned two pieces of jewelry by René Lalique as gifts for Natalie Clifford Barney. One was an opal, diamond and blue enamel anklet and the other a silver, enamel and moonstone ring. Both pieces were decorated with a bat motif, an extremely unusual and highly evocative image for the period. The bat has the highest rate of homosexuality among mammals and their sexuality was first studied in 1895 by Raymond Rollinat and Édouard Louis Trouessart (French). The image of a bat became a symbol of homosexuality. (x)
