Look at this sherbert. Coming up with original promotional material and art must be tough, but there are times when I think people aren’t trying anymore. Take these two promotional images found on Steam recently. Apparently these are not the same game but if it wasn’t for the title text how would you know?

Might and Magic Dual of Champions and Risen 3 promotional images.

Posted by Rob, April 18, 2014 10:36 am
