No fan of Origin, Electronic Arts' new digital distribution service, the publisher of Serious Sam 3: BFE [pictured] announced "in a move likely to shock absolutely no one" that they have scrapped plans for their own proprietary service.
R.I.P., "Krundle," as it was codenamed by Devolver Digital's Fork Parker "I think we could have revolutionized how I make a shitload of money," he said in a news release. "But the reality is Steam is an amazing digital platform."
"Krundle" would have offered "unconventional preorder incentives like in-game nachos and undetonated Cold War era munitions," says the release. Not sure about the latter, but hell yes on the former. Also titles that are "Free-to-Play-for-Fifty-Bucks," meaning that your game is free to play once you pay $50 for it. And purchases of $200 or more would be rewarded with free Portuguese porn movies.
"I guess consumers could also sign up for EA's Origin service if they are into 10-year-old train simulators," Parker said. "But you can be sure those sons of bitches will never deliver in-game nachos."
