GOG.com offers Bontanicula owners a free copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut
Gamers who bought the point-and-click adventure game Botanicula from GOG.com will be gifted a copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut.
The gift comes in light of the Humble Botanicula Bundle offering the game in a name-your-own-price deal that includes Machinarium and Samorost 2, two games by Botanicula's developer Amanita.
In the deal, users can pay as much or as little as they like for the three games, or pay more than the average donation (which currently sits at $8.83) to receive a full-length feature film by Anamita, Kooky, and an adventure game, Windosill.
GOG.com wrote on their website that they were unaware that Botanicula would feature in the Humble Indie Bundle and as such they want to give something back to their customers who paid full price ($8.99) for a Botanicula pre-order from GOG.com.
"As soon as we saw the bundle, we reached out to the guys at Amanita about providing our users with something in return for their preorders," GOG wrote on their site.
"We got them to agree to give us a number of goodies from the bundle, and we're giving you and every other user who bought the game before 12:00 GMT on the 20th April ... a few things."
Those who bought Botanicula from GOG.com before April 20 will receive Machinarium and download links to Botanicula's full soundtrack and special art book. To sweeten the deal even further, GOG.com is throwing in The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut.
When we reached GOG.com for comment, they said that it was important that they put their customers first.
"When we heard about [The Humble Bundle] we knew that some of our customers would be upset that they had pre-ordered the game from GOG.com and may have felt they didn't get as good a value as people who bought from The Humble Bundle," a GOG.com spokesperson told Polygon.
"As a result, we decided to make sure we were providing an exceptional value for those gamers.
"Of course, it's not cheap to do something like that, but we think that showing our customers that they're important to us is the right way to do business," he said.
"We take care of our customers, and they know it. It's one of the things that makes GOG.com -- and CD Projekt RED -- different."
