Is there ever going to be a price reduction?

Just wondering if there is ever going to be a price reduction, considering you can get some PS2/X-Box games for the same price as you're charging for Slay at the moment.

As I see it: no

so far I dont think sean has made any price reductions.

The $40 for all 8 games is definitely a deal (I didnt think so before I got them either though). I wouldnt pay $20 for slay alone, but for all of them it is worth it, and plus, they keep getting updates unlike the xbox and ps2 games which will likely soon be outdated and worthless.

And lastly, the games are all very fun.

I think the way it is now, most people end up spending $40 for all the games, even if they originally were thinking about spending $20 for just one.

Its called modern marketing tactics..

Actually the way Digital River take their piece of the profit to cover the cost of processing the credit card bill makes it not practical to charge 1/8 of the cost of all 8 games for just a single game.

$40 for all of them is a good deal.

Yes, you're absolutely right BoxZone_Author. RegNow charges a fixed fee per sale plus a percentage so I make less profit if I reduce the price.

I've no plans to drop the prices on any of my games and with the dollar droping in value lately I'm considering putting the prices up.

Hi Sean,

Not to tell you how you need to price your games but I just wanted to chime in my story here.

I saw the ad for Slay while reading the Age of Empire 3 forums at Heaven Games. The ad compelled me to download the game and within 15 minutes I was ready to buy it... until I saw the price at $20.

I continued playing the demo for another 4 hours advancing up the skill levels until I beat it at the hardest level... again I was tempted to buy it but the $20 kept me away.

Its not that I think $20 is to much for an indie game. I think I paid $20-$30 for Oasis recently... and around the same price for Starscape a few years ago. However the "presentation" of these games is superior to Slay.

Its probably a good thing I didn't buy this game... the last thing I need is another drain on my limited time right now (just had a daughter 2 weeks ago). But if I could have bought the game for $8-$10 via Paypal I would have without any hesitation after playing for 15 minutes.

I believe the "sales fee" you would pay with Paypal would be under $1 for a $10 sale.

Anyways, thats my story... for whats it worth. Maybe it will be of some value as you plan for the future.

Another thing you might consider is writing the game in Flash and trying to market it through miniclip or another "quick and casual" game site.

-Adam

The problem of using PayPal though is that they don't do:

- a full version download link on purchasing
- a license key generator
- a decent database for searching on old orders

I also don't think I'd sell twice as many copies if I halved the price, but the amount of customer support would increase.

I know not what World War 3 will be fought with, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones. Albert Einstein, on the nuclear bomb.
