Get Knights of Honor II Digital Goodie Pack for Free from the 6th to 9th December 2022. You do not need to own the game to claim the goodie pack
Now I don't like to criticize a free gift, if it is given in good faith and truly is a gift.
But this one certainly has me questioning that, especially when so heavily promoted on GOG's main page.
We've had at least a couple of these now, and I am wondering why they can't be sweetened with a bit more substance, that would actually make it a gift for a large portion of GOG customers, rather than just the few this might actually appeal to, that are some kind of fan of the game. And even if I was a fan of the game or had some reasonable interest in it, why would I actually want this so called gift, that is basically just artwork, that I could have likely gotten elsewhere quite easily?
Now don't get me wrong, I love good artwork, and regardless of the game I can judge it on its own merit.
Actually, having grabbed the freebie and downloaded it and looked at some of the artwork, what I have seen so far isn't bad ... no text anywhere, and nicely done. Whether I'd ever use it anywhere or look at it again, is another thing though.
Clearly this is a big promotional push, and they don't think the three videos and screenshots on the game page are enough ... some of the screenshot pics which are full size, look great.
But hell, imagine if every game at GOG started doing this ...... This week we have 50 Goodie Packs to give away.
Where's the making of video or ebook or music track(s) or bonus DLC etc ... something unique even.
