So, The Cursed Crusade was released today on Steam and guess what is today's daily deal: The First Templar. Somehow I think this is more than coincidence. Nevertheless, both games blow ass

The First Templar blows ass? I wonder if we played the game. Oh, most likely not.

It was a rather good game, if one forgives the slightly poor combat and the lower budget visuals.

Edit: The Cursed Crusade has been on Steam UK, albeit only visible in searches, for about two weeks now. It's only Steam US that got it today.

They're dicks for releasing and selling their games?

Just to point out Kalypso have nothing to do with The Cursed Crusade. It's published by Atlus in the US, dtp in the EU, and The First Templar released about six months earlier. So yeah, I don't see how Kalypso are being dicks.

I have no idea either why they are such dicks. But because it's on the internet, it's gotta be true.

OP implies they're dicks for reducing the price of their game the same day a somewhat similar game is launching.
I think they're smart, especially since TFT seems to be the better game.

But TCC is only launching in one region today. It's been available in the EU, arguably its target market, for at least a week now.

And it's only a 24hr reduction, not like it's a permanent one, although it still is only 20 to TCC's 30.

Are publishers able to request specific dates for their sales?

The last two post had not fulfilled their 'dicks' quota, so I'm here to resolve the balance : Double Dicks. That is all.

so if both games blow ass...

why do you care that kalypso is reducing price on a game?

not even going into argument why that is somehow a wrong move seeing as we, customers can get a cheaper product.
