In an odd twist....

I got an email from Redhook today saying that I will be getting a free key for Color of Madness.

I'll just post the "why" here:

Quote
We have, after lengthy consideration, decided to make The Musketeer DLC available free to all owners of Darkest Dungeon, effective on release of The Color of Madness DLC on June 19th (on Steam).

As you know, The Musketeer has been an Adventurer-Tier Kickstarter Exclusive. Since her release, weíve honored that exclusivity and have publicly maintained the position that we had no plans to release the class to non-backers, regardless of how much money people were willing to pay!

The reality is, counterfeit mods of the class already exist, and itís impossible to effectively prevent those from being distributed. Ultimately, as we move forward with our follow-up title, we feel that releasing this class to the larger community will add richness to the game, increasing value to all who own it.

We hope that youíve enjoyed the lengthy period of exclusivity, and that you understand our desire to leave the game in as good a shape as we can. Weíre pleased to offer you a free code for the ďThe Color of MadnessĒ DLC in order to preserve the value of your pledge. Your game code for The Color of Madness will be sent out via BACKERKIT, so check your email or log in to your account to redeem. (It may take a day or so to distribute)

So there you go. Because people were already modding in what is essentially just a reskin of the Arbalest, I don't have to pay for the DLC. Not sure many studios out there would willingly take a financial hit like that over a backer exclusive of low value....but they got integrity. As of this time I don't have the key in my backer kit but it will probably show up sometime soon.

Much obliged, Red Hook! To be honest I didn't even remember the Musketeer was a backer exclusive and wouldn't have cared if you'd given it out for free to the rest of players, but I will happily accept the key.

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the Gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

Its kinda silly to complain that a friendly NPC isn't a well designed boss fight.

It seems a little ironic that studio that makes a game like this can be as nice as that, but still. Iím not exactly going to assume malice when theyíd have naught to gain from it.

Anyway, I own this game. Itís been fun playing it.

I dunno what else to say...

Canít check my own email since Iím in China (whee, amirite?), so I canít see the non-backer version of this message.
