Don’t Make Overkill’s Mistake: Promotional Content as “Rewards”

Day 8 of the Spring Break Event announcement brings us a fuck-up that Overkill has committed before. And curiously, it seems that they’d learned enough from the past to know people won’t like it, but not enough to know why.

Yesterday’s Spring Break “reward” is a collaboration with the developers of SpeedRunners, tinyBuild and DoubleDutch Games. For Overkill’s part, they are offering four masks to players who buy SpeedRunners. Players who own both games will also get Dallas, Wolf, Hoxton, and the Cloaker as playable characters in SpeedRunners.

This is all fine and well except that they’ve released this content during their Spring Break event, when one reward the players earned during Hypetrain event is to be released each day. This content is not one of the unlocked rewards and you have to make a purchase to obtain it.

Don’t make Overkill’s mistake.
