I think Goblinoid Games the first with the art free version of the Labyrinth Lord PDF given away for free and a version with art sold an a nominal price.
LotFP Weird Fantasy is the second OSR publisher that I know of that went art free for free, pay for version with art. (although Weird Fantasy's art enhanced set includes 2 books not in the free version).
Has anyone else gone this route? Did I miss a game or two?
Is this effective marketing? I suspect it is, but I have no way to know for sure.
Some people put little value on free. Does the fact that there is a pay for version that is essentially the same make the free version more valuable?
Please leave your thoughts after the beep. BEEEEP!
