Good Old Games Surveys Community on Downloadable Content

March 15, 2013 -

After a less-than-stellar launch of downloadable content for Omerta: City of Gangsters, Good Old Games has decided that it wants feedback from the community on whether it should continue to offer DLC and other content. As the company steps into offering newer games the reality is that a lot of these games use new models for content including multiplayer, offering early access to games, season passes for purchasing DLC content in bulk, and episodic content.

The survey hopes to gauge what the community thinks about these different types of content being offered by GOG in the future. Below is the list of question, but you can jump right to the survey here.

1. Offer DLC so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

2. Offer Season Passes for DLC so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

3. Offer episodic content for uncompleted "seasons" of games so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

4. Offer Season Passes of episodic content for uncompleted "seasons" of games so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

5. Offer early access to unfinished builds of actively-developed games that will contain bugs?

6. Allow fans to "buy in" early on a game's alpha or beta--for a little more money--to support the developer and help make the game better?

7. Sell games that are primarily multiplayer focused (*not MMOs*), but which require unique serial keys to play online?

8. Sell games that are primarily multiplayer focused (*not MMOs*), but which have persistent online features which are tracked on the developer's end (matchmaking, statistics, achievements, etc) and which require 3rd party accounts (i.e. a login for the developer's online service)?

Re: Good Old Games Surveys Community on Downloadable Content

The problem with this game is they released the game as is when people on the forum told them that they expect a different sort of game and the staff pushed back to expect something different from what the public expected. This was a warning sign that perhaps they should pull back and start again. People were expecting Kalypso to roll out a mafia Tropico city builder or advanced simulation and what we got is a literal linear boring game that was over priced and we have pissed off people spreading the word not to buy and the game is not doing well. If they want to improve customer relations at this point all DLC should be free and they need to appease customers by making changes customers want to see. If they abandon the game and roll out Part 2 than they are missing a huge chance to get customer good well back on their side. Right now the studio and publisher are not big names to where they are owned by a big publisher and they can treat customers like fans and make crap games for themselves and not customers like Bioware.
