The Chinese Room has announced via their blog that the remastered version of Dear Esther, the Landmark Edition, which is releasing today, will be given to existing Steam owners free of charge, as a "way of saying thanks for the last five years and for being such ace fans."
They also announced that PlayStation owners can get a Dear Esther dynamic theme for free as well, with "more console news coming very soon," whatever that means. Continuing with the mysteries, they said that there's an exciting announcement at 18:00 GMT today too, when the game launches, and that those interested should follow them on Twitter.
As if all this wasn't enough, they also announced that, as of today, there's a 20% discount on all their merchandise for a week, such as maps and postcards, all of which you can find here. There's also a competition today to win a mega-bundle of The Chinese Room goodies, like digital copies of all their PC games, a merchandise bag full of t-shirts, maps, and postcards, a signed copy of the Dear Esther OST on vinyl, and a secret thing that "you'll really want."
Should owners of games get remasters for free as a rule of thumb?
