It’s easy to judge.
GOG made a stunt where they made announcement that made people think that “they are closing”. Which they were not. And people felt sorry for this and showed sympathy. Later… they pretty much communicated that “oh, but we are not closing (never planned!”).
There’s tweets raving around the net judging this PR stunt where they fool people.
It’s easy to judge them. They point out that they are a small company and need to generate buzz in any possible ways. That sounds like a lame excuse in comparison if they would have simply said “we ****** this big time, sorry folks.”
Yeh, it’s easy to judge.
Luckily, they are somewhat knowledgeable on how to apologize.
Here’s what PC gamer reported them to say:
First of all we’d like to apologize to everyone who felt deceived or harmed in any way by the closedown of GOG.com
Apology accepted from my part.
I think GOG has made terrific effort in digging good old games from their graves, shined the plates and got us to play these wonderful classics.
Sure… they might have missed the target for this “we might close down” PR stuff, but hey – it’s people who work there. People make mistakes you know.
I don’t see much point in judging them.
That’s strike 1.
In baseball you are out after 4.
How about giving these guys a break?
