I just saw all of this in that email you'd sent out, Chris, and just.... ugh. This sounds REALLY irritating and stressful. Doesnt exactly please me too much either. Was hoping to see this spark some more interest in the game, since more sales might = more content down the line, or whatever, but....
Well, here's hoping it goes well in the end.
Considering the price is just about 5-6 bucks it is really confusing. This is an amoutn even a kid with no own income can easily get just by asking it's parents. This is something you don't have to save for the half year.
Do you know much about mobile gaming at all? It's a good example of this.
People FREAK THE HELL OUT if they have to pay 50 cents too much. Or sometimes, if they have to pay a dollar. Not "a dollar more than a certain amount", no, I mean, "if they have to pay a dollar at all". Because of COURSE things should be hyper cheap or free, and to hell with however much it costs to make the game. How DARE the developers try to earn money off of it?
That obviously is a bit of a different market, thankfully, but it does show just how astonishingly cheap people can be. And maybe it's just me, but there's more of a sense of "entitlement" these days than ever before, which just makes it worse.
Or I'm just being negative. Or both.
