I accidentally clicked on the package deal in the shop when I was trying to figure out why I kept getting the 'you must be connected to upgrade your bike' message, and it instantly gave me the goods. There was no price on it and I didn't meant to click on it. I didn't want to pay for anything yet, especially something where I have no idea what the price is!

In freemium psychology, it's common to give the customer "seed money" to get them used to the idea of "if I click in here, I get good things". You say "hey, that's wasn't so bad...." It's a subtle psychological encouragement to entice you to return later....because every time you do return they have a chance of you spending real money.

Works especially well when dealing with younger minds with limited knowledge of the meaning of money.

I thought this odd as well. But I will take it!

Xitooner, we aren't nearly tricky enough for such psychological business over here! :)

We wanted to test this bonus pack (which I think is awesome!) before going worldwide and it ended up being given out for free.

Being an early soft launch player certainly has it's benefits huh? :)

Aww man!! I closed the pop up assuming it cost money, so I missed out on the free pack. Now it's $2.99 in the store. :-( waaaaah!

Well, tricky enough to go freemium though. :)
Dont mind me, I am pretty cynical at heart, but it doesnt mean your game doesnt play awesome. I live with the freemium aspects I cant stand, just to play it.

Good to know that it was free! Love the game, although running out of fuel sucks :nonchalance:
