I've been doing a thinkerton (no its not a real word I just made that up) and I think I'm going to wait till next week reasons are.

1 I'm really to busy with other games right this moment to really have the time for this.

2 having never played a twinstic before its probably won't hurt to start with this game(since this will run butter if your other games are
anything to stand by) and id rather support you than take a free copy of a game I won't be very helpful for mechanically.

3 there was enougher reason but its ran away from me ill edit it in if manage to catch it.

Only 10$? You really should set your goals higher, Chris.
Can't wait to buy it next week or the wek after next week or the week after that one and so on. Any week is fine with me.

Cheers!

In terms of the pricing, I think that the price is appropriate for a number of reasons:

1. It's a reasonable reflection of what we're able to do with it budget-wise from our end versus the scale of the market.  Aka it's not that this is lower effort, but the effort-to-market-size ratio is more in our favor.

2. Other games that are similar in this genre are priced similarly, and we don't want to stick out as "the expensive one," because then that makes purchases a lot less likely.

3. Well, and other variations and subtleties related to the two things above.

Thanks a lot for the list of "wana know / don't wana know". It's exactly the kind of precision I was looking for. Thanks!
Please excuse my english: I'm not a native speaker. Don't hesitate to correct me.

Oooh, nice! But I'll refrain from testing this time, because I got a few deadlines coming up over the next two weeks. I'll certainly buy the alpha next week, though.

by the way will this game have a demo come out with it next week? just so I can make sure it won't start a fight with my laptops internal systems?. (I'm assuming this'll run like butter but its always best to be safe than sorry)

It's going to be another 4ish hours before I have a build for folks, unfortunately.  We're shaking out a number of spiders still. ;)

Thanks!  I have you on the list. :)

I'm honestly not sure.  On the one hand I would like to, but on the other hand this will be a challenge to do a demo for.  So I'll have to think about it in terms of exactly what to have it do in order to actually be a demo.  Maybe just one floor per run, I'm not sure.
