Niggle is a card game that I play at my in-laws at Christmas. Let me know what you think!

Err...I find this a different style from what you usaully do... This sounds interesting.

Oh, and your policy on "one free game after suite purchase", does this mean if you decide not to get one game, you get the next free?

There is no "one free game after suite purchase" policy! I'm happy to be generous if the new game comes out soon after someone has bought the whole set but this is not some sort of hard and fast rule.

No...I mean... you said, if you buy e.g. All Windows Games, you get the next game released free?

I'm happy to make agreements with individual people and I don't think I've ever said no to a reasonable "can I have the next game?" request but that doesn't mean that that is my official policy.

how not?

is that because if you made a mega decent game the old sweat would get it for free and it would make much less money? or would it be tricky to set up who needs what game etc?

(only bought firefight so this doesnt apply to me, but it does seem a bit of an oddity that youll do it but only if folks ask)

I've found Sean to be very reasonable. Please keep in mind that even though Sean enjoys developing games this is his primary means of making a living.

Sean, thanks for great games that you develop. :D

I'm getting really confused, maybe you changed your policy, but when I bought the games I found out that I got free updates and 1 game free (just one...) which I did, with End of Atlantis.

What do you think about this Sean? Why don't you just offer to sell every new game that you develop after a person buys the package for $5 each, since that is generally what you pay on average for each game when buying the package? (I realize that the addition of Niggle makes the $40 split between nine games now changing the average to about $4.44). Here i am referring to the All Windows Games package, though it can be applied for any of the other packages as well. I bought the windows package a while ago and would gladly pay $5 more for new games that you put out.

The trouble with this idea is that I'd make very little money anyway as RegNow charges me 7% + $1 for each sale and it would also be difficult to check whether a person has already bought the All Games package.
